    I just bought this mp3 player and I have the same issue with it.
    I charged the battery, uploaded some music and then listened to it.
    But than I turned it off. After 10 minutes I tried to turn it on again, and it just wouldn't start. I tried several times and nothing. Then I tried the Recovery mode. It turned on, but than suddenly the intro display (saying Sandisk) went off and only the light kept shining. And has been shining since then for already about an hour. What can I do?

Ok. I'm Mexican and my English is not so well but I have an solution that I'll like to share.

You have to download this file http://www.sandisk.com/Retail/Default.aspx?CatID=1449
and unzip in the Desk of windows . It's name is "pp5022.mi4"

Open the Notepad program and create a file whit name "sansa.fmt". IMPORTANT Dont save it like "sansa.txt" or "sansa.fmt.txt"
(We don't have to put anything in the notepad file, live it blank) and saved in the windows Desk same as "pp5022.mi4" file.
If you don't know where is notepad program go to "star" then "programs" then "accessories" and you'll find it there.


NOW...
First step be sure that your sansa is off
then put the lock switch in the position orange (Sansa Locked)
Then press the Microphone bottom and keep holding, at the same press the menu bottom and keep holding too at the same time.
Wait until you are in the Recovery Mode.
Then conect your sansa to the computer.
And it's gonna appear a new window whit a "version.txt" file.
Take the 2 files that you created in the Desk and drag and drop to the sansa. Then unplug your sansa to the pc.
Now turn on the sansa but Unlocked before.
And I hope that your problem have been gone.
Adios

i think you put it back again your 2GB micro chip, its not necessarily to put 8GB, it will not work.. Your sansa e250 is design for 2GB only, your not an inventor to do that... your only a user, if you something stupid on that, its your own risk but for me its not necessary, your not contented with that.. All you have to do buy a new one which a lot more than 2GB and up, right!... Don't be so pathetic to do that things, even the company don't want really to change even the micro chip inside.. They were not selling for that kind of MP3 player... if might be then they will loss profit on their product, youve been pirate on it... hope you understand the situation...

Micro sd 4gb card problems.


Check the Sansa tutorials at http://www.sandisk.com/Retail/Default.aspx?CatID=1468
to make sure you have followed all the steps first.

In my experience, every mp3 player/photo frame/etc with a card reader has a MAXIMUM memory limit for the type of card that it can read. It is possible that the Sansa player can only read 2GB Micro SD cards or smaller - and thisi nformation may not have been available when they printed the manual. If you have followed all instructions, and it still will not read the card, try switching to a 2GB Micro SD card.

4 GB micro sd and the Sandisk Sansa e250R...


If the 4gb micro SD is a high capacity SD (it will say micro SDHC on it) your player may not be able to read SDHC cards, my sansa can't because it's the 'older version' it will read 2gb and below micro SD cards though (it sucked when I found out because I had just bought a 6gb micro SDHC)
