Question about SanDisk Sansa e250 MP3 Player

Screen color messed up, won't connect correct

Ok i have a couple of problems with my sansa e250, ive only had it for a couple months then i started to mess up:

THE FIRST PROBLEM:THE SCREENS COLORS ARE MESSED UP

i don't know what is wrong with it one day i just turned it on and the colors were all screwed up. all the images on the screen appear to be multicolored outlined and blurry. i tried restarting it and it didn't work

THE SECOND PROBLEM: WONT CONNECT
every time i plug the usb into the computer it recognizes it as a new drive and on the mp3 it boots up and says connected, then a couple of seconds later it says disconnects and then disconnects from the computer. it goes back to the sandisk screen and then the process repeats about 10 times and then just goes back to the sandisk screen and stays there although plugged into the computer and isn't recognized.

usually when it messes up and freezes i would just go and run a disk check and error fix on my computer and it fixes itself but it wouldnt help these problems.

SOMEONE PLEEEEAASE HELP!!!!

What would recovery mode do for my problem


what resolution are your images? without knowing if your pictures are set to 256 colors thats too low, 32 bit colors are too high. i think that 16 bit is what works.
hope this helps

My SanDisk sansa e250 wont sync


try reseting it to factory settings. in other words put it into recovery mode. to do this simply plug it into your computer, then push the hold button down so the orange is showing. then push and hold the record button on the side of it and push and hold the power button. if you do this correctly it should work. heres a link to the sansa forums just in case http://forums.sandisk.com/sansa/board?board.id=e200

best of luck friend! : ) dont give up!

Stuck on refresh database screen


Hi tt, First, I would delete all the files in your Sansa>Music folder - you may have a corrupt or un-recognizable file that is stalling your "refresh". Check and see if your player refreshes correctly - if it does, update the firmware (see below). If this doesn't stop the problem, you may have to format your player - Windows Explorer>right click on Sansa Player>Format>make sure it is FAT32 and unclick "quick format">Start. You will lose all files that you have not backed up - but your player should start up correctly. Then, make sure that you have the latest firmware update - here is the place to get the updater: http://www.sandisk.com/Retail/Default.aspx?CatID=1376 - instructions are on the site. After the update, add the files again and see if the unit refreshes - if it does not - it's probably a bad file. The only thing you can do is to add the files singly (or in small batches) until you find the problem file - I hope that you do not need to go this far! Sandisk has fixed most of the software problems that folks encountered in the last six months - IF you keep you keep up with the firmware upgrades. BTW - I have had my Sansa e250 for two months and have had zero problems - I LOVE it! Hope this helps, Steve
