Had the same problem, blue light no screen, took the cover off found a small black rectangle block not completely pushed in. the block is located on the right center on the part above the battery and right behind the screen.

    Awesome! I tried many things--take battery out, hold buttons down while plugging unit into computer, hold button while pressing another button, and so on--but your trick worked. Weird little black box was sticking up a little, I pushed it and it went click! My unit is a Sansa Rhapsody model e250R. Thanks.

I have the same problem, I guess it is because of USB compatibility issues, when I plug the player to my desktop computer (fairly old) the sansa shuts down and doesn't restart.
first of all, to fix this issue, simple take out the battery and put it back in, and it will be OK.
Secondly, the way to plug in the sansa, you have to first plug in the USB cable to the compuer, and then connect the player. this usually works.

Sansa e260, with Rhapsody. Sansa turns on, off, on, off continuously


Uninstall the MTP device in your hardware device manager, or remove it using add/remove hardware in control panel

Then:
Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard.
-----
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: http://www.sandisk.com/Retail/DriverDownloads.aspx

Sansa turns on but does NOT do anything!!! :0!!


Sounds like you have a few different problems, thankfully its easy to resolve. Run the recovery tool from the SanDisk website, select FORMAT when prompted. http://sandisk.com/assets/file/downloads/firmware/e200fw01.00.12.exe Best of Luck. (this only works with non Rhapsody devices, annotated by an 'R' or the word Rhapsody on back)
