My e260 is saying "load main image failed switch to recovery mode" what that means


Load main image failed, this is a firmware error, (this does not have software like a computer)

Recovery mode, the player tried to recover from the error.

The player has firmware updates that where put out by the MFG because of problems.

You have to read the manual, carefully and follow it to the T.
because you need to update the firmware on the player.

This is there website.

Sansa player wont turn on


To get it in recovery mode. Put the Hold switch into the lock position. Then hold REC and Power for about 10 seconds.

You need to hook up your cable after that and you can reset the firmware.

Sansa e260 Not reseting


You need to go into Recovery mode: Sansa has one and Windows has one.

Sansa Recovery:Got to Sandisk's downloads section and get the Sansa Recvoery Tool http://www.sandisk.com/sansa/#/support-0/ and select e200 series; wrost case scenario if you can't find it here is to search the electronic version of the user's manual on that same website for the word "recovery"; http://www.sandisk.com/Assets/File/pdf/guides/e200/e200_userguide_en.pdf

Windows Recovery:
Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard.
