Re: sansa 280e broken screen

No one sells it - you must replace the whole player

My sansa clip is frozen on the blue flower

One issue that people experience with the Sansa Fuze player is that the screen turns white when they are trying to use it. If you experience this common Sansa Fuze MP3 player repair issue, you need to reset your player. Hold down the "Play" and "Power" buttons for about 20 seconds. The player should automatically reset.
MP3 Player Freezes

Another issue is that the player freezes. You may see lights on the player, but it won't do anything. Follow the below steps to correct this issue:

1. Use the above steps to perform a hard reset.

2. Turn the player back on, and slide the "Power" button upward.

3. Use the USB cord that came with your player, and connect it to your computer. Only connect your player directly to the computer. Don't connect it to a USB hub.

4. See if your computer recognizes that a device was connected to it. Or, look in "Devices and Printers" folder, and see if the device shows up in it.

If your device doesn't reset, and the computer doesn't recognize it, contact SanDisk for additional assistance. Or, you can attempt to repair the device yourself.
Repairing Internal Components

If your Sansa Fuze player is out of warranty, you can attempt to repair internal components. This is an "enter at your own risk" solution, but you may be able to fix the issue. If it doesn't work, or if you damage another component, you will most likely need to get a new player.

1. Shut off the device.

2. If you don't have one, purchase a case opener tool. This is a tool with an extremely small head that is used specifically for opening up small devices.

3. Place the head of the tool in the seam of the device, and rise up the faceplate. Do not do this forcibly, or you'll break the ribbon cable connected to it.

4. Remove the ribbon cable from the faceplate.

5. Examine the battery cable. If this connection is loose, your Fuze player won't turn on. Plug the connection firmly into the port.

6. Check the LCD screen connection. A loose connection here means that you can't see anything on your screen. Disconnect the cable from the port, and reconnect it.

7. Reattach the cable to the faceplate, and reattach the faceplate. Turn the device back on.

These Sansa Fuze MP3 player repair suggestions may not fix all issues. If your player is still not working properly, either take it back to the place where you bought it, or contact SanDisk for additional help.

Call technical suport at Sandisk. You might have a corrupt file. They will walk you through the steps. You may have to reformat which means you will lose everything you already loaded. I've had mine for about a year and it's still working fine. You may need to load the latest firmware as well.

Sansa e250 cracked faceplate needs replacement

If it's just the faceplate (and not the underlying actual LCD) you could replace it with the intact faceplate from an otherwise defective unit. Any of the e200 series should fit. Try that online auction site to see if you can find a cheap defective one, just make sure the faceplate isn't cracked before you bid.

These mp3 players should *always* be placed in one of those clear protective cases. I have mine not only in a clear plastic case, but also in a leather case with a belt clip. Never just stick it in your pocket as that will surely lead to a damaged headphone jack.

Sansa e250 cracked screen

I've tried to get a replacement LCD for my SANSA, impossible so far.

There are some PARTS/REPAIR SANSA's on ebay, but must of them with the same problem. There was also a working LCD, I just fail on bidding.

If you can get a working LCD, the replacement is possible with a blower, directing heat to the specifyc connectors area, you can remove the broken one while the glue (some kind of silicon) is warm and flexible, you have to be careful when putting the new one, pins must be aligned, also you should do that whith both (broken and wkring) at the same time, so then you can use the glue still on the pins (golden connectors) area.

I got to remove the broken one and noticed (with my fingers) that the silicon can be used again, but since I didn't use a blower some of the pins (connectors) where damaged. Only halve of the process is confirmed.

Good luck, we'll wait 4 your results if you get a working LCD somewhere..
