Question about SanDisk Sansa e200 MP3 Player

Dont Even Think a GURU can help!!!

Hi there!

I was charging my sansa, took it out after a while (forgot it was charging and left it in overnight!) i didnt think would cause a problem, but when went to plug it out, noticed screen said 'SANDISK' rather than 'CONNECTED.' so plugged it out, as thought maybe thats what says when fully charged, but has remained on that screen. Thought was frozen, so turned off and turned on again, but every time turn on, remains on 'Sandisk' screen, the one that comes up when it is about to load into device.

Dont know what is wrong or how to fix it! turns off and on fine, but doesn't load, and even when plug it into usb, doesn't say connected as usual and computer doesn't alert me that has recognized device, just stays on home page screen. Have even taken off back, removed and re put back in battery, thought that would work, turned it on , and same thing, just stays on home page.

What do I do!!?

If anyone can help me, please email solution to: (ignore stupid email lol)

had sansa since September and had so many issues with it, fed up now as its been like this for 2 days. If NO ONE can help, I'm converting to Ipod/Creative/Sony mp3 player!

Powercycle the sansa by holding menu/power button down for 45 seconds, then let go, then wait 15 sec, then power on correctly by holding power down to the count of 1-2-3

When i connect my Sansa player to my computer it freezes up and does not find the hardware. Also, i have another Sansa and this one does not run on a changeable battery. You are suppose to connect it to...

Similar thing happened to me. I turned on Windows Task Manager to see what was using all the processing power. It was "services.exe" looking for a Sansa driver. Since this was an older Dell with USB1, it took about 5 minutes of chugging before it had the driver loaded. It seemed to be locked up during this time, but I could see the CPU was running as hard as it could.

Sansa clip won't charge fully

If you have a phone charger with the same connector, plug in you Clip and leave it overnight. This will fully charge the battery. There is not enough power from the USB port.

It wont turn on!

If you were charging it with your USB cord, you have to keep the computer turned on the whole time it's charging, otherwise, it will be losing it's charge.

Can turn on

The Sansa can sometimes break overnight if you sleep on it. This happened to me. I don't think this is really a solution, but if you bought it at BEST BUY, they have a 2-year guarantee for a new one.
