My sandisk sansa e260 mp3 player is always freezing . when i turn it on it pops out a window that says "refreshing database" . then stops and only load 15% of it .


Hello,

As you may have noticed already, the player can be switched off when freezing and put on again, resetting the device as next:
1. Press and hold the Power/Menu button for approximately 20 seconds.
2. Release the Power/Menu button.
3. Press the Power/Menu button again to turn on the player.


Sometimes a firmware update or reinstallation is required, to get the player function normally again, see:

Battery is too low. System shut down


Have you tried removing and replacing your battery? What about the connections and cord, are they damaged at all?

Sansa e260


Try this;

Run the recovery tool from the SanDisk website. Make sure you select "format" when prompted.

http://www.sandisk.com/Assets/File/Downloads/firmware/e200fw01.00.12.exe

You need to put the device into "recovery mode" before you run the tool.

- Turn the device off (hold power for 20 seconds)
- Slide the hold switch into "hold" position.
- Press and hold the "record" button while connecting it to your computer. Keep holding the "record" button until you see the "new hardware found" on your computer.

Then run the recovery tool. Select format when prompted.

Best of Luck.

E270 - white across top of screen - menu won't come up


Hey scoob, I have 3 of these players in my home and every time there is a problem with them we find that if we HOLD the power button in and keep it in until it shuts off (while the button is still pressed)... can take a full minute or more, it seems to reset any problems we have encountered. worth a try

WON'T TURN ON


I just got an e260 today and had the same problem. When I originally turned it on the Hold was in the 'locked' position. From there on out the screen has been black. When it was plugged in nothing happened either. The Solution? Hold the power button for about 20 or so seconds. The manual doesn't tell you about it, but that's how you completely shut the sansa down altogether. Yes, the manual says it's also a reset button but it isn't mentioned how you actually use it. Once you hold that button down long enough it should completely shut down and restart.
