My Sansa E280 is about a month old. I just finished putting about 1300 songs on it yesterday, took a drive & it worked perfectly in my car. Then I went to turn it on later and it just refuses to turn on. I tried hooking it up to my computer & still nothing!

I fixed mine! I removed the four screws on the back with an eyeglasses repair kit and then took out the battery and waited a few seconds then put it back in and now it turns on and i didnt lose any songs or anything!
Try this, I bet it might work. And the battery is the big white thing that looks like, well, a battery. its really obvious.
format the player in MSC/Rhapsody mode. Then restransfer the songs back to the player.This is usuall cause by a bad file in the player, If you are unable to get to the menus of the player. Perform recovery mode on the player and create a sansa.fmt on the player then let if format the device.
You dragged & dropped files in recovery mode?
Recovery mode is only for re-installing the firmware or formatting the device if it is unresponsive.
If you are wanting to drag and drop files onto the device, the music needs to be put into the Music folder on the device.
If you do not see the Music folder, you will need to enable hidden files and folders on your PC.
Best of Luck.
p.s. - you can add to this question this doesnt work.
