    Took 280 on a trip with boyscouts. It stayed in my back pack in its case the whole time. took in out on the way back and the screen was cracked. I am a 45 year old adult. The back pack was not handled roughly.

I have dropped this and my other mp3 players and cellphones on much arder surfaces like sidewalks and streets and have no problems other than a scratch on the body...

Replacing the screen is not an easy task. The ribbon cable is glued on to the circuit board. You might want to try this...
If you can find a cheap e250 like a refurbished model from you can open both of them and swap out the 8 gig circuit board for the 2 gig in the e250. The memory board is the smaller separate circuit board that plugs in on top of the larger daughter board

Sansa e280 won't upload my photos. Do I need media manager or something?

You need to use the Sansa Media Converter to convert pictures to a format the Sansa can handle. They also need to go into the internal memory, as the e280 will not display pictures from a microSD card.

Broken screen need prayer repaired

You are in luck - Philadelphia is one city where you can actually get mp3 player repair. Call Nerds Next Door at 1-888-596-4321 - let me know how it goes.

Guest - if you know how to use a soldering iron, there is a YouTube video that will show you exactly how to repair your screen. If I were you, I would just call Sansa and claim your warranty, but maybe you are out of warranty.

Cracked screen e280

My best advice is to get a junk player from ebay or other source,one that has a good screen. There are only 4 screws that hold the screen on,once you remove the back. With a small phillips screwdriver and about 10 minutes you can replace the screen.
