Try unlocking it by switching the switch on top, of the player by the earphone plug, from red/orange to white.

Thank you and please respond with any comments or more questions.

    Try changing the USB mode in the settings. If that doesn't work try downloading the firmware updater located on the sandisk website. Then run the update.

    Thank you and please respond with any comments or more questions.

Sansa e260, key locked


jeff,

I'm not familiar with SANSA but try this.
try to locate any slide switch from your MP3 player indicating
"HOLD" or a picture of a "lock" or a "key" then switch it backwards.

and in some cases this switch can also be locate at the headset unit if the headset does have a control buttons on it

cheer,
mark

Key locked system shut down


On the top of the player there is a slider. When it is showing orange next to it your player is "Locked" so accidental button pushing wont mess up your tunes. Slide it over so it shows only white instead of orange and your player should be just fine.

Mp3 player says key locked system shut down


I had this same problem on another RCA player.. with no instructions manual it was hard to figure out what keys locked meant. Then I noticed a little slider on the side of the player, it has a little icon of a pad lock on it. Once I slid this back, the keys lock problem went away and I was able to listen to my music once again.

My best guess of what keys locked means.. you don't want you mp3 player to turn on when you put it in your pocket with your keys, so you change the slider to be locked, when your sit down and your keys are pressing against your on button, the mp3 player will shut off... as we all have experienced in frustration.. saving your battery.

Perhaps RCA should make this slider bright orange so it pops out and does not blend in so much, or they should put it right next to the on button.

Key lock shut down


On the back of the player there is a button to the right. Above the button it says Off and below it there is a picture of a key. Switch the button upwards to turn the lock thing off.
