Question about SanDisk Sansa e250 MP3 Player

2 Answers

Completely dead My sansa e250 was working fine the whole 2 days I had it. I charged it by plugging it into a wall outlet that said it works for all mp3 players. The screen was lit up while it was plugged in, but as soon as I unplugged it the screen went black and I can't turn it on or do anything with it. (It's in the unlocked position.) HELP!

Sansa MP3 Won't charge or come up on computer screen!?

sometimes if the mp3 is very cold or if it has been completely drained from battery it will do that, first try using a charger that you might have for your car, or something that you can charge it from a wall outlet.

My sansa e250 mp3 player is unable to connect to computer nor recognized to use .It won`t turn on change the modes

turning on to change modes is your problem. If it's completely dead you may need to replace it or refurbish it. Or if the battery is completely dead plug it in all day until you can get it to turn on. ONCE ON then you can worry about getting it to connect. Try this:
There are two connection settings in USB: MTP and MSC. For some reason MTP is the default, but it doesn't connect properly on all computers. Select MSC and plug the player in again, the computer will recognize sansa e250 but not show the driver just yet. It is installing recognition software (just basic drivers - nothing heavy) and it doesnt tell you what its doing until its complete. WAIT FOR IT. Once it is complete you will see both the sansa e250 and the removable memory slot in your "my computer" now you're good to go.

SanDisk, 2 GB Sansa mp3 player won't charge

You MAY have a power glich. In which case, hold the power/menu botton down for 20 seconds or more, then connect it to the computer.It's best if you use a USB input that's NOT part of a Multi-USB base, as those DO cause power gliches.

Erasing bad music on my player

If you're fine with erasing your whole library, then just format the player. Connect the player to your PC:

1. Open "My Computer".
2. Right click "Sansa e250" and select "format..."
3. Check "quick format" and run.
4. Reapply the firmware from the sandisk website.

...and you're done. the sansa will be totally wiped clean. and now that you have the newest firmware, you shouldn't see this problem again.

Prombles Recharging Battery

Try upgrading the firmware of the player. If it still discharges quickly it may be the battery contact POP and have the battery replaced.

Sansa MP3 player charges, plays while plugged into wall, but not unplugged.

When you plug it into the wall make sure you turn it off and let it charge all the way before you start using it again. see if that helps
