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

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.

Broken Sansa e280r screen

Hey wordjay,

While the LCD display for many MP3 players may be replaceable, in some cases the availability and cost of doing so might make repairs uneconomical.

I would first suggest checking with the manufacturer of the MP3 player (SanDisk) to see if the screen is sold as an individual component or as part of an assembly - this can often give you a good idea of how much repairs may cost, before any labor charges are factored in. Keep in mind that not all manufacturers may offer replacement parts for their LCD screens if the model has been discontinued or is currently subject to a recall.

Once you've gotten a good idea how much replacement parts may cost, you may wish to then speak with your local repair facility for more information regarding any potential installation charges.

If you are still unsure how to proceed, remember that you can always bring your MP3 player into a Geek Squad® agent at your local Best Buy™ store for further assistance.

Hope this helps you out.

Go Ahead. Use Us.

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.

Broken screen

When it comes to issues such as cracked screens, the question comes down to two things:

1. Is the screen cracked in such a way so as to cause big issues, or so the screen cannot function at all.

2. Is my product still under warranty.

Most companies nowadays tend to ship you a new product, if yours is still under any kind of warranty. If your MP3 player isn't, It may be better to get a new one.

Hope this helps.

My best,
