Question about SanDisk Sansa e250 MP3 Player

1 Answer

Bad Song caused screen to go blank!

Hi guys, my Sansa e250 told me this afternoon that I had a bad song and stopped playing. Soon the screen went dark, but left the blue scroll light on. I was able to turn the phone off, but when I tried to turn it back on it just went back to the black screen, w/ the blue scroll. So I left it on the rest of the day, and the phone did indeed die. After that I plugged it into my computer to charge, again NOTHING! Please can anyone help me! Thank you in advanced.

My sansa mp3 player keeps freezing...


well, first format the sansa player on ur computer, then reaply ur music and find a better quality song like that 1 to put on it, i recomend buying it off itunes or something like that, because it could have a virus in the song or it cannot be played on the player, (via: it is not the right format to be played on it, like mp3 or wma files.)

Bad track and Battery


Make sure the hold switch is not engaged.
Remove the songs from the player and then reload them. If they are froma subscription service, make sure they do not have fixed-term licenses on them. Right-click song --> Properties --> digital rights or media usage rights
Use Windows Media Player to view the songs that are stored on your mp3 player - best to view them in the "Sync" tab. Find the song that you want to delete, right-click the song, and select Delete (or left-click and press Delete on your keyboard). Voila!

BAD TRACK ONCE AGAIN JUST WONT PLAY ANYMORE


Go to the Sandisk website. After that, look up your mp3 player model. Hit Ctrl+F and look for firmware. Follow the instructions. It worked for me.

Sansa won't move


Try reloading the firmware. If the Sansa Updater says that you have the lastest firmware download the firmware manually and then run the software. In addition, tech support is fantastic with Sansa give them a call or e-mail. Best Regards, Keith

Computer does not show MP3 player as connected and how to stop a song playing


If you installed the firmware update, you might have forgotten to change the device to MSC mode.. try going to settings>USB mode>MSC This should probably work.. to stop a song while its playing, click the |<< button while you have the screen with the current song. (you can pause a song on this same screen with the >|| button) If you have gone back to any of the menu screens, wait for a couple seconds and the player will automatically go back tot he song display screen so you can stop the song.
