Question about SanDisk Sansa e250 MP3 Player

1 Answer

Do not finish the boot

I'v altered the firmware to Hebrew version half a year ago. It worked perfect until week ago - while plug-in the cable (as usual), trying to unload recorded files, it didn't finish the power on cycle, it hanged on the sansa Logo.
After trying to disconnect and power it on again, it start the boot cycle, then show the sansa logo, then the upper half of the screen covered with purple dots, then it shut the logo screen off then replaced by error message : "load main immage failed switch to recover mode - please connect USB cable"
connecting the cable adds the message : " Mini-B-> Device mode
also we can see the 16MB partition on the sansa.
We tried all recovery methods... but this is like "perpetuum-mobile"...:
Recover loads the mi4, rom, version files
then disconnect the sansa removed them again but do nothing.
Do you have any clue how to enforce the sansa back to original/factory setup/state?

Well i only know so little about the mp3 player but having experiences with laptops,PS3s, psp's, etc. what your going to have to do is first make sure have everything you have on the player in to your PC then we can start with the basics

First your going to have to reimage it like wipe out the memory erase everything that is in the folders of the player except all the installed ware and everything that keeps it working your smart enough to think you'll know what to do

Hew i got hebrew on a nokia 6750 ?

If Hebrew is not on language setting, you can't. Only way might be installing firmware including Hebrew, a version made for it's use in Israel. How to get it? No idea. Please remeber that this is a rather old phone released about 7 or 8 years ago.
My advice: get a newer one.

Have HP slimline series. Came back from a break.

Try another monitor on it to verify it is the video card that has gone bad. If it does not work with another monitor then that is the likely culprit.

The spark plugs were changed a year and a half ago by ford and the boot was not on the spark plug.

Push it back on. As long as she runs fine, don't sweat the small stuff.

Hebrew language

The Sansa Clip - US Version is the only one of the Sansa players not to have a firmware upgrade that adds correctsupport for Hebrew. I hope your player is Israeli. If it is:
Menu --> Settings --> Language --> Hebrew
(p. 19 of your user manual)

On the Clip, they had no right-to-left vs. left-to-right swapping functionality even with the firmware upgrade, I believe.

Television picture issues...

I had the same problem when I accidently hit the remote. If you are hooked up to cable make sure INPUT is on the correct setting -- AV, S-Video, YPbPr1, YPbPr2, VGA, HDMI1, HDMI2, ATV & DTV (see button on TV or remote). Hope this solves your problem.

1080p ** Longer Available, problems switching to 1080i.

I'm a sharp servicing technician and since both the component and hdmi have problems, Im leaning towards the Main board also. If it was the digital board, only the hdmi would have a problem.

If you do end up replacing the main board. ONce youve installed it, check to see if it has the latest firmware version. New boards from Sharp are supposed to be preloaded with the latest firmware, but sometimes they are not.

A firmware upgrade is possible because it deals with this sort of DVI/HDMI compatibility issue. It would be the easiest and cheapest fix. Enter the Service Menu to check what version you have. The latest is version 1.31

good luck.
