Sounds like a bad battery. Does it also do this when plugged in to the usb port? If so, then you may have a defective Sansa. As a last resort, try resetting the unit:

Remove the 4 screws holding the backplate, disconnect the battery and wait about 10 seconds. Reconnect and reattach the backplate. Don't worry about voiding the warranty, or anything like that. At this point the unit already doesn't work and if this last attempt doesn't work, return it for a replacement or refund.

Hi,

Solution one: Check the scanner light
  1. Follow these steps to check the scanner light by making a color copy of any document.
  2. Load plain white, unused, letter size paper in the paper tray.
  3. Lift the scanner lid, place the original face down on the scanner glass, and then lower the scanner lid.
  4. Make a color copy.
  5. When the product starts to scan the document to copy, slightly lift the scanner lid to see if the scanner light turns on. It is not necessary to lift the lid completely.
The scanner light should be visible under the scanner glass to the right or left.

Solution two: Check the power connection
Follow these steps to troubleshoot the power connection.

  1. Press the Power button to turn off the product.
  2. Unplug the product power cord from any surge protector, extension cord, or power strip, and then connect the power cord directly to a wall outlet.
  3. Press the Power button to turn on the product.
  4. Load plain white, unused, letter size paper in the paper tray.
  5. Lift the scanner lid, place the original face down on the scanner glass, and then lower the scanner lid.
  6. Try again to make a color copy.
  7. Press the Power button to turn off the product, disconnect the power cord from the wall outlet, and then reconnect the power cord to a different wall outlet.
  8. Press the Power button to turn on the product.
Try again to make a color copy.If these steps resolved the issue , you do not need to continue troubleshooting.If the issue persists we have to reset the printer. Doing reset in the beginning stage is not recommended. Reply me back and i will provide the reset step instruction.

Regards
Riztech

Ink absorber full, ip2600


I have a ip2600 that has had the waste ink absorber msg come up twice. After trying several recommended fixes involving pressing the Resume key twice then 4 times, etc., I've found the perfect solution. Start by cleaning the waste pads with tweezers, etc.
1. Press Power Off
2. Disconnect Power Cord
3. At SAME TIME, Press & HOLD Power Key while re-connecting Power cord
4. Release the Power button
5. Press the power button again
This will work!

My sandisk sansa e260 mp3 player is always freezing . when i turn it on it pops out a window that says "refreshing database" . then stops and only load 15% of it .


Hello,

As you may have noticed already, the player can be switched off when freezing and put on again, resetting the device as next:
1. Press and hold the Power/Menu button for approximately 20 seconds.
2. Release the Power/Menu button.
3. Press the Power/Menu button again to turn on the player.


Sometimes a firmware update or reinstallation is required, to get the player function normally again, see:

My phone doesn't want to turn on!


First make sure your phone is fully charged. Then check...
It may be the storage card - if you take the storage card out it will boot up and you can put it back in. - pain in the a## but it may work. Or Try taking the SIM card out, boot it up, turn it off, replace the card, and turn it on again.
Last resort is a hard reboot. If you did a hard reboot and nothing happened then you did not do it successfully. To do a hard reboot.

- with the phone powered off
- press the two soft keys, yes the left and right soft keys which are the two dash keys labeled - -
- while keeping it pressed, press the power button down
- keep the power button pressed down for 1 - 2 seconds and then release the power button while still holding down the two soft keys. Keep holding down the soft keys until a black screen appears and prompts appear
- now release the soft keys and follow prompts
- if you dont see the black screen with the reset option, pull the battery out, reinsert it and repeat the above steps
- when you see the black screen with the reset option, press the Send button to confirm the reset.

It doesnt want to load help!


Hey chave, I have 3 of these players in my home and every time there is a problem with them we find that if we HOLD the power button in and keep it in until it shuts off (while the button is still pressed...)can take a minute or more, it seems to reset any problems we have encountered. worth a try

Blank White Screen - No Menu Showing


My Sansa has a similar problem. Sometimes when the Sansa turns on (after the Sandisk logo) the screen will either turn black, blue, or black and white stripes. The player still works, but it is hard to navigate without the screen, obviously. What I end up doing is letting the backlight turn off and then pressing any button. Sometimes when the screen comes back, the display is allright again. But sometimes it takes more than a few tries. Turning it off and on again seems to work a little better, but it is more time consuming.
