Question about SanDisk Sansa e260 MP3 Player

1 Answer

Blue screen I connected my sansa e260 to my laptop to take songs off of it. When I disconnected it, i noticed that it didn't turn off and it just has a plain blue screen with vertical darker blue parallel lines. The wheel isn't blue, nor does it light up when i spin it. Also, when I hit or hold the power button it doesn't do anything. Is there a special combination of buttons to hold to restart it? If not, how do I do that?

Re: blue screen

Remove your back plate and slip the battery out for a second. Should clear it right up no problem. Next time make sure to close programs that might be using the device before unplugging it.

Half of song list not recognized by Sansa e260

i will surely help you. you have mentioned that you can see all the songs when your mp3 player is connected to the computer. so what you can do is, you can very well go ahead & format all the songs in your mp3 player using your computer. then you transfer a few songs to your mp3 player(the songs which were not getting recognized in your mp3 player). this should solve your problem.

Deleting songs

Not exaclty, deleting songs has to be done when recharging through the usb port on your pc or laptop.

Once connected you should see and icon or folder(Sansa E260) pop up on you desktop representing your player which can be opened and contains your playlists, individual songs, and any media you may have transferred.

Within this window you can move songs, edit lists and if necessary delete any unwanted items.

Stuck in language mode

Download the Sansa Recovery Tool from the Sansa website.
Format - Erases Everything: Connect your Sansa player to the computer and open Windows Media Player. Click on the Sync tab. Pull down the drop down menu underneath the Sync tab by moving your cursor over the Sync tab and left clicking on the little black arrow underneath the Sync tab. Highlight "Sansa 1GB" (wording may vary slightly), and then select "Format." - this should erase everything.
Firmware Upgrade- Erases Everything: Get the latest firmware upgrade from Sansa - it updates the firmware and erases every song in the player all at once. Note: this method doesn't work if already have the latest firmware. Go to this website and click "Firmware Updater" to find out:

Sansa e260 problem

It might just need to be reformatted. If you don't care about deleting and redownloading everything with songs and videos and pictures, too, then reformat it. Just plug the mp3 player into your computer and right click on the icon in the MY COMPUTER window, and click on FORMAT. It should come to a new window and click on start format. If this doesn't work, then call me to help you any further. Ask for Maxwell at 1-(239)-945-0583.
