Blinking light with no picture or sound


If you have a green blinking light,
Most likely issue is with bad capacitors on the DM an FMT boards.

1) Look for bad 1000uf 16v caps on the dm board and the fmt board.

2) checked surface mount fuses (small white boxes) on DM and FMT board

Look carefully for other bad capacitors in the general area.

Start here and let me know the results.

Note, there is a lot of disassembly to get to these boards. Not a fun project.

Youtube Trick I


You may notice just under the lower right coner of the video window, some videos have an option to “Watch In High Quality”. By default, these videos will play as a 320×240 FLV file
at 320Kb/s. Check out this sample:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zyyjgYcS8Fs

The user could click on this link to “Watch in High Quality” which will reload the video and play the MP4 version , which is 480×360 at 512Kb/s. By adding &fmt=18 to the end of the URL, you’ll make the URL you share with others bring them right to the high quality version. Here’s the same video in the High Quality view:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zyyjgYcS8Fs&fmt=18

What else are you gaining besides increased video resolution? The video is compressed with H.264 compression, so you get better video even at the same data rate. You also go from a low fidelity mono audio feed to stereo @ 44.1Khz sample rate.



&fmt=6 increases the resolution from 320×240 to 448×336, Flash 7 video @ 900Kbps; audio @ 44.1KHz 96Kbps Mono CBR.

&fmt=18 increases the resolution to 480×360, H.264 video @ 512Kbps; audio @ 44.1KHz 128Kbps Stereo. Note, the bandwidth may be lower, but it’s utilizing a more efficient compression codec .

&fmt=22 increaes the resolution to 720p HD video if the source was uploaded at a high enough resolution.

Load Main Image Failed & Refresh Database Freezes


*** Warming : Dont try this if you dont know what your doing or if you dont know what your main problem is with the player. All the steps in this guide are collected from various sites i would not name them ( if not for you guys this guide will not be possible ) . I suggest if you dont know what you are doing is to contact sandisk technical support. ***

This is for Sansa E200 Series ( Normal and Rhapsody Model ) mp3 player with Version 1 devices. I see that many of you are experiencing this error on your players and i decided to create this guide that worked for me and for my friends players after contacting the nice guys from the sandisk technical support.

This is for Load Main Image Failed Problems.
Note : This is caused by an incorrect firmware version was loaded on the player or a bad copy of firmware files in the player.

I . For Normal Mp3 Players which dont have a Rhapsody Channel.

1. Perform Recovery mode on the player ( Enable Hold Switch + Press Record Button + Power Button ) , when it says welcome to recovery mode connect the player to the computer.

2. Open the 16MB Format which is the player in your My Computer. Then check open the Version.txt. This file will tell you what is the firmware of the player. Now you will have there,
    * .12A = Older Version firmware got to 2B
    * .15A = Also an older version of firmware go to 2B
    * .18A = Latest version of firmware. got to 2C

2B .If you have an older version of firmware downloading and updating the firwmare of player to the latest one usually resolves this problem. If not applying this file on the 16MB Format will have a greater chance of fixing the problem.

http://tinyurl.com/347j66 

This file will be upgrading the firmware of you player to the latest one.

2C. Download and install this file on your computer and then run the file.

http://tinyurl.com/nwtp4

This file will be downgrading the firwmare to an older version which is .12A

II. Load Main Image failed for Rhapsody Model mp3 Player.

1. Perform recovery mode on the player. Then connect the player to the computer.

2. 16MB Format should be detected in your My Computer. Download and apply this file in the .16MB Format.

http://tinyurl.com/2z5gc5

This will correctly reinstall the correct firmware for the player.

===================================================
For Players Experiencing Refresh Database on thier device. This would apply on both Rhapsody and Normal Model mp3 player.

1. Perform recovery mode on the device. Then connect to your computer.
2. The 16MB format would be recognize on the My Computer window. Download and apply this file into the 16MB Format.

http://tinyurl.com/2c5zzm

If the above link dont work just create a file name sansa.fmt take the extion of the file should be FMT. To check the file extension right-click on the file and choose properties.

=== If all else fails contact sandisk technical support.====
Thanks to crimsontide, cyber and to my special friend johnnyten for lending my your sandisk player. :D

Reformatting


Here is what I found in the Sandisk forums - make sure you download the firmware for your exact player only, or else it won't work right:

Assuming it's a v1 model, you can try updating the firmware through recovery mode. Here's how:

1) Download the firmware file for your region from Sandisk's website - go to Support, Sansa Players, software & drivers, e200 series

2) Extract the files you downloaded in step 1 to a folder on your computer where you'll be able to find them. There will be 2 files in the archive, one is a .ROM file and one is a .MI4 file.

3) Create a new blank empty text file and name it sansa.fmt. Do not name it sansa.fmt.txt. Put that file in the same folder where you put the extracted files from step 2. You now have 3 files in that folder: the .ROM, the .MI4, and the .FMT files.

4) Turn off the player if it's on by holding down the menu/power button. You might need to hold it down for 15 to 20 seconds.

5) Put the HOLD button on the top of the player to the ON position. The ORANGE tag will be showing.

6) Hold down the RECORD button on the left side of the player while connecting it to the computer.

7) You should see a message on the player to the effect MSD MODE 2.0 USB CONNECTED or something similar. If you don't see it, go back to step 4 and try again.

8) Look in My Computer. You should see a new removable drive labeled 16MBFORMAT if all has gone according to plan. DO NOT TRY TO FORMAT THIS VOLUME!

9) Drag and drop the 3 files from step 3 into the root directory of the 16MBFORMAT drive. Right-click on the 16MBFORMAT volume and select Eject or, alternatively, use the safely remove hardware icon in the system tray.

10) Unplug the player from the computer. It should update the firmware, format itself, and then reboot.

The above instructions only work with the v1 model.

E250 How do i downGrade


Recovery mode:
first, Create a blank file with filename "sansa.fmt", put the player to recovery mode this way = you have to enable the hold key then plug it to your computer while holding the record button. you may release it after you see 'welcome the recovery mode'.

Then drag-drop this file, the file will tell the device to format itself after you unplug it

Hope this help, if so please leave rating

Blue screen with flickering horizontal lines


Sounds like the 1000uf capacitors on the FMT board need replacing. This is a common symptom with that chassis. There are three 1000uf caps that fail on that PC Board

SanDisk 2GB Sansa e250 doesn't turn on


Ok. I'm Mexican and my English is not so well but I have an solution that I'll like to share.

You have to download this file http://www.sandisk.com/Retail/Default.aspx?CatID=1449
and unzip in the Desk of windows . It's name is "pp5022.mi4"

Open the Notepad program and create a file whit name "sansa.fmt". IMPORTANT Dont save it like "sansa.txt" or "sansa.fmt.txt"
(We don't have to put anything in the notepad file, live it blank) and saved in the windows Desk same as "pp5022.mi4" file.
If you don't know where is notepad program go to "star" then "programs" then "accessories" and you'll find it there.


NOW...
First step be sure that your sansa is off
then put the lock switch in the position orange (Sansa Locked)
Then press the Microphone bottom and keep holding, at the same press the menu bottom and keep holding too at the same time.
Wait until you are in the Recovery Mode.
Then conect your sansa to the computer.
And it's gonna appear a new window whit a "version.txt" file.
Take the 2 files that you created in the Desk and drag and drop to the sansa. Then unplug your sansa to the pc.
Now turn on the sansa but Unlocked before.
And I hope that your problem have been gone.
Adios

Screen turns from logo to white then to logo again


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.
