Sansa e260- it says battery is too low. System


Having received no response in over a month, I assume this is no longer a problem.

Backlight not working


This can really be a challenge since it's you are no longer able to see the display to change the setting, see if you can shine a fliash light on it so that you can at least read the display to change it. Otherwise see if you can get it to reset to factory default by either taking out the battery or just leaving it on till it is completely drained.

Hope this helps.

Won't turn on


Make sure the hold/lock switch is not engaged.

These are the most common methods for recovering Sandisk's Sansa Mp3 Players. I have been almost universally successful in recovering Sansa players using one or a combination of these methods. These methods do not work if you are having synchronization or music format issues - they are for recovering a player that will not power up, freezes, flashes, is not recognized by the computer, and a host of other issues.

Reset the Sansa Player first. On most models, restart is done by holding the power button in for 15 seconds or longer. Check your specific manual to be sure. The manuals are available from the Sansa website if they have been misplaced.
Download the Sansa Recovery Tool from the Sansa website.
Format - Erases Everything: Connect your Sansa player to the computer and open Windows Media Player. Click on the Sync tab. Pull down the drop down menu underneath the Sync tab by moving your cursor over the Sync tab and left clicking on the little black arrow underneath the Sync tab. Highlight "Sansa 1GB" (wording may vary slightly), and then select "Format." - this should erase everything.
Firmware Upgrade- Erases Everything: Get the latest firmware upgrade from Sansa - it updates the firmware and erases every song in the player all at once. Note: this method doesn't work if already have the latest firmware. Go to this website and click "Firmware Updater" to find out: http://www.sandisk.com/DriverDownload/driverList.asp
If these fail, then:
Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + 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).
You may have to restart your computer after each of these methods to get them to work properly. Disconnect your Sansa player BEFORE shutting down your computer.

My SanDisk sansa e250 wont sync


try reseting it to factory settings. in other words put it into recovery mode. to do this simply plug it into your computer, then push the hold button down so the orange is showing. then push and hold the record button on the side of it and push and hold the power button. if you do this correctly it should work. heres a link to the sansa forums just in case http://forums.sandisk.com/sansa/board?board.id=e200

best of luck friend! : ) dont give up!
