Question about SanDisk Sansa e260 MP3 Player
I would be playing my sansa e260 for like 10 minutes and the screen goes black, music stops, and i cant turn it on , off and it won't do anything when plugged into the computer. after like an hour it starts to turn on and stuff. also, when the screen is blank and it wont do anything, the screen and other parts feel warm like its running.
It's not suppose to say Refresh Database when you connect it to the
computer, it's only suppose to say that when you eject it OUT of your
Did you load a massive amount of files during your last sync?
I don't think there's any need in resetting it if it is able to turn off and on. What I recommend doing is formatting it. Remember, formatting the player will cause you to loose ALL your media stored in the device. To format go to "My Computer" > "Sansa e260" right click and go down to format.
If it formats, then good. Turn it on and it should say "Refresh Database". Change the mode of your player to MTP(?) so that it will no longer refresh the database after transferring media(?).
Connect it back to your computer and reload your media onto it that was wiped out during the format. Now disconnect it and see if it works... It should.
If that doesn't work this should do the job for you: http://sandisk.com/Retail/Default.aspx?C...
Always remember to update the firmware on your products, it is a wise idea to do so. (: http://sandisk.com/Retail/Default.aspx?C... < Get updates with that.
Drain the battery if whatever you do don't work. Sometimes removing the battery for a few seconds on putting it back in works.
If you think you attacked this problem from every angle and still no luck. Contact sandisk: firstname.lastname@example.org Give them some time, their swamped with emails at the moment.
