Hi alot of people have been having this problem what you need to do is put the mp3 player in recovery mode ill tell you how to do this in a minute ok.
But what you need to do first is go to the sandisk site nad download the latest firmware for your mp3 player now when you have put your mp3 player into recovery mode and downloaded the firmware when you select the firmware from your computer once its been downloaded it will talk you through the process of reinstalling the firmware.
So the best thing to do first is goto their site and download the latest firmware ok once you have done this then follow these instructions to put your mp3 into recovery mode this is how you do this ok only do this once you have the firmware downloaded to your computer.
1. with mp3 off push lock switch to lock position
2. hold down rec button on left hand side keep held down
3. whilst holding rec button down press on button untill it comes on.
It should now say recovery mode now try installing the latest firmware this should now have solved your problem if not let me know then i can assist you further ok

Just a blue screen.


if the player will still play music but nothing shows on the screen, then the display is shot. The screen is not replaceable on these players. sorry, but it's most likely junk now. You could use it as a data storage device still. Best bet is to buy a used player off ebay or amazon.

I got my sansa e250 wet, and i've been letting it dry in front of the fan. at first it worked fine, i could listen to music and i could see the screen. then it froze, and ever since i tried to restart...


The motherboard is messed up. There is some corrosion on it. you are going to have to get the motherboard replaced. our company can fix it, but you will have to tell your boyfriend. Thanks, Connie

I hate blue


goes off because the backlight is on a timer. after 20 seconds or so it turns off if no buttons are pushed. if the player will still play music but nothing shows on the screen, then the display is shot. The screen is not replaceable on these players. sorry, but it's most likely junk now. You could use it as a data storage device still. Best bet is to buy a used player off ebay or amazon.

Screen is blank - blue whee in lit


I just encountered the exact same problem with my mp3 player. It is the 2nd time that this has happened to me. I have taken it back to the store both times and they have given me a new one. They keep telling me that illegally downloaded music will cause it to crash but i only had CDs on there. I guess i dont have a real solution other than taking it back and hoping for one that works.
