Question about SanDisk Sansa e200 MP3 Player

1 Answer

My sansa e200 can't load the title screen. What should I do?

Last night, I let my e200 charge via ac adapter. This morning, I disconnected it. I turned it on, but it won't load the title screen. The screen has been black and backlit and the thumbwheel has been lit, too.
The e200 has remained in this condition for over an hour and a half.
I tried turning the power off. I tried connecting it to my Windows Vista pc.
It won't budge! The computer doesn't detect it!
What's wrong with my e200 and what's the solution?

I was able to charge it fully last night but now it will not turn on this morning.It is a sansa clip i have tried holding the power up for a few minutes but still nothing.


I'm surprised it wouldn't turn on when plugged into external power. That would mean a different problem than a disconnected battery lead ... possibly a disconnected USB port lead, though then I would have expected that you'd be able to turn it on when not plugged in.

Sansa Recovery Tool
PDF how to use recovery tool

Answer The power may be depleted fully or the Connect might be hung during boot. Charge the Connect for at least 20 minutes using the AC charger. If the Connect will not turn on after 20 minutes charging with the AC charger, you can then try using the Connect Recovery Tool.

The recovery tool will reformat and reload the latest firmware to the Connect. The tool and instructions are located here.

Note: Ensure the Connect is turned off by holding the power button 8-10 seconds before initiating the recovery sequence.

Explanation:
The e200 can operated under two different modes, MTP (Media Transfer Protocol) mode and MSC (Mass Storage Class) mode.

To see the MicroSD card as a Removable Disk, the e200 must be in MSC mode. The following screen shots show how the "My Computer" screen will look when the device is plugged in under each mode.

MTP Mode

MSC Mode
faq356-b1.gif
Solution:

To change the mode from MTP to MSC go to the Main Menu of the e200.

If you're e200 is plugged into your computer, please unplug it first.

1) Scroll to the "Settings" > "USB Mode" > "MSC Mode" and push the select button.

2) Connect the e200 to the computer using the USB cable provided.

3) Go to "My Computer" and there will now be two Removable Disk drives similar to the MSC Mode image on top.

Sansa mp3 player freezes at refresh database


The Same thing happened to Me once. All you have to do is reformat it. You can do this by first putting the player in recovery mode. You can do this by putting the hold button on the side where you can see the orange and then plug the device into the computer while holding the power/Menu button. Then go to my computer to Verify that it came up as 16MB-Format. Then you can type into the address bar and type in http://mp3support.sandisk.com/firmware/rhapsody-1.0.2.165.zip. then once you do that right click on the file you downloaded and select open with compressed folder and drop and drag to the 16MB-Format drive. In the 16MB-Format drive folder select file menu and select New - Folder and rename it sansa.fmt then press enter to save. Finally move the hold switch back and disconnect the device and look at the screen and verify it is formatting and resetting once it's done and finishes the updates restart and if needed pick your language. check and see if you can use your player.
