Sansa e280 "frozen" won't turn off or respond to buttons pushed

My sansa 8gig player is not responding to any buttons being pushed. It is not on the hold button but the button seems loose compared to my husbands player's hold button?? I was plugging it intto mini speakers (made for mp3players which I've used before with it), this time I also tried to save the charge by plugging the charger into the wall so the battery didn't run low. That's when it seemed to freeze up. Any suggestions? It is a refurbed player so anything's possible I suppose,
The hold button or "overloading" it with the charger and speakers are my only two ideas of what might have went awry.I just want it fixed!
Thanx

Sansa player says connected despite the fact that is not and wont shut off or perform any other functions.

Sansa e280 "frozen" won't turn off or respond to buttons pushed


I had the same freeze problem and after doing everything I could think of I read the downloaded user manual and found the answer was to hold down the menu button for 15 seconds. It acts as a power off button and cancels out the last operation thereby unfreezing the offending action.

New sansa e280 frozen!


Press the Menu button for about 20 seconds and it will turn off. Try restarting it.

If that doesn't work, download the firmware from Sandisk's site. Flick the hold switch over, press the record button, and plug it into your computer. That will start recovery mode. Open the firmware and install it.
