Sansa 260 R load main image failed message


Hello,

The Sansa e260 Rhapsody could be recovered by resetting the player.
How to reset the player :
1. Player switched on.
2. Press and hold the power button for approximately 30 seconds.
3. Put the player back on.


When the fault is not resolved a firmware update / reinstallation needs to be made. There are 2 steps needed for getting new firmware on the player.

Step 1: switching the player into recovery mode / MSC mode

1. Turn off the player.
2. Slide the Hold/Lock switch on top of the player so an orange color is showing.
3. Press and hold the REC button and connect the device to the computer.
4. A message will appear on the device display screen confirming the connection and a memory partition will be viewable in My Computer.
5. Release the REC button.
Step 2: Update the firmware ( updating firmware always in MSC mode, see Step 1 )
Use next link for updating the firmware:
http://kb.sandisk.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/306
The Sansa updater installation on the computer should be the easiest way to update firmware.

Need more help ? Just post a comment.

My screen is black


Download the Sansa Recovery Tool for the Sansa e200 series and run the official Sansa Recovery Mode

or

Run Windows Recovery Mode

Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off, hold in the REC button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the REC button in. Keep holding the REC button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard.
If you get the problem where MTP Device keeps popping up continuously, uninstall the “MTP Device” by going to Start à Control Panel àSystem à Hardware à Device Manager (you computer may vary slightly, depending on Windows Version).

Sansa player wont turn on


To get it in recovery mode. Put the Hold switch into the lock position. Then hold REC and Power for about 10 seconds.

You need to hook up your cable after that and you can reset the firmware.

My Sansa e280 forze


Try plugging the player into the computer and formatting it. This will erase the music from the player, but you have a copy of the music on your computer as well. I think this will solve your problem.

Good luck.
