Re: my sansa e260 wont turn on or charge

I had the same problem. Place the device into hold and press the menu and mic buttons at the same time. The first time I tried it, I had no response and then I pressed the same buttons again and my e260 came back to life.
After getting my e260 to come on, I updated the firmware and everything has been working.

2. switch thje palyer on using the mechanical switch (on the side)
3. turn it off by either holding down the play button, or selecting "System" from the menu
4. The screen will go black and the battery will begin charging.

I was working out with my Sansa e260 mp3 player, when it just turned off. I charged the battery last night, so it can't be that. When I plugged it into my computer, nothing happened. Do you know what's...

There could be a slight problem of it being frozen so try holding down the off button for 10 or 20 seconds and hopefully it will turn off or on that could be the problem or maybe not.

Problem with sansa e260

that happens to me too. i think the problem is that your computer can't like, sense that it's plugged in, so your battery's dying out, and the computer wont charge it

Sansa E260 Charging Problem

The battery may have become disconnected from the contacts, therefore it will not charge the battery but lights up when connected to the PC. Remove the 4 screws on the back, remove and re-seat the battery. Charge the device for a few hours. Best of Luck. p.s.- you can add to this question if this didnt help.

Sansa won't charge or load.

Plug it into the computer (the cord you would use to charge it and transfer files), and hold down the power button for at least 15 seconds. The Sansa should then begin to turn on and start charging. :)
