Try this: Press and hold the center button and the start button at the same time for about 10-20 sec. it worked for, plus thats what the ppl at sandisk told me to do.

Have you downloaded the most recent firmware upgrade?

Does Sansa upgrade software work for you? [Connect with the software running. Turn player on and let the updater take over. When complete, unplug and the device should restart on its own. Once the menus return, I would go to settings and switch to MTP before I did anything else if I were you. MSC is for the updater only. MTP is player (only) mode, I believe.

Sansa e280 is DEAD. Will not charge, will not start

Try resetting it through the tiny hole on the back of the player. This fixes a lot of different models.

My Sansa e280 will is not being recognized by any PC in MTP or MSC mode. Windows XP is operating system.

i would suggest reinstalling the device or removing the device and letting the computer restart to see if that works if that dont work then use the CD that came with the device finally if that dont work contact Customer Support and see if that helps =)

Sansa went "dead"

Try holding the power button down for at least 10 to 15 seconds. That should turn it off. Turn it back on. If this doesn't work, try taking the battery out for a few seconds. If it still comes up with only the blue ring on, called Sandisk tech support to try to get an RMA. The number for sandisk is 1-866-726-3475
