One day i was going through the rhapsody channels, the player was working fine, the next day i pluged it to my computer there was nothing on the screen but the blue light was on, i tried to turned it on but only the blue light turns on.
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.
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.

It's dead. Throw it out and buy an i-pod. My e280 did the same thing. One day: fine, the next day: Blue Ring of Death. I have tried everything on the internet, even downloaded Ubuntu and typed in all the e200tool Nuclearscriping BOARDSUPPORTSD and Manufacturing Mode commands. Nothing. It's dead 2months out of warranty. Piece of %$#@!!
Uninstall the MTP device in your hardware device manager, or remove it using add/remove hardware in control panel
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

You may have changed the mode on he device.
Napster only work with the device in MTP / Rhapsody Mode.
If thats not it, check to see if the firmware can be updated.
Best of Luck.
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.
Best of Luck.
