Broke! i just bought the mp3 player for my wife. she took it home then the next day she comes to me saying it doesnt work. i try it and sure enough it doesnt.

Try manually reseting the player:

press and hold the Select button while pressing the Volume Up (+) buttons simultaneously.

Also, after doing so, try connecting it to the computer, and leaving it for about 5 mins to see if you can get a charge. Then turn it on, if that works, you just need to charge your battery.

if that doesn't work, return and exchange it since you just bought it.

SanDisk Sansa froze on song screen, wont unfreeze


Make sure the player is fully charged. 1. Connect the player to your computer. 2. Make sure the computer detects the player.
NOTE: If needed, switch the player to MSC mode, 1. Turn device OFF. 2. Slide the Hold switch down to Lock (orange color showing). 3. Press and hold the center button while connecting the device to the PC.then connect it to the PC. Next Be sure the battery is charged 1. Leave the player connected for approximately 2 hours to charge. 2. Disconnect the player from the PC. 3. Verify if you can turn on the player. 4. Reset the player if necessary.
To reset the player: 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.
If that does not do it, re-seat the battery: Then try and see if it will come on with out the battery hooked to your computer, which I see you have done but did you change modes MSC to MTP . next delete the song it keeps hanging on and re-copy it back on to the player from a different folder or re-rip it from the CD and copy it into a new folder then re-copy to the player.

Formatting problem


This one is not compatible with Vista - it might work sometimes, but not others - if Sony's website doesn't have an upgrade to make it Vista compatible (I don't believe they do, but you should check), I'm afraid this player has seen the end of it's days - because it sounds like you tried everything else that I would have suggested.

My sansa e260 isnt turning on


Well for starters, clear some memory. It sounds like the player is trying to turn on but failing as there is not enough free flash memory for it to use in a RAM like fashion. If youre using windows enable the view of hidden files folders. [Start> Control Panel> Appearence and Themes>Folder Options then browse through the tabs until you find a list which has the option "show hidden files and folders". Then plug in your e260 and go into the larger removeable drive. Then go into the folder "VIDEO" or "PICTURES" or "MUSIC and delete some files. Then once you have deleted at least 100MB, unplug and restart the player. This should fix your problem if it doesnt. Consider formatting the removeable disc, or updating the firmware. [However take extreme caution with formatting the disk to ensure that it does not contain the program files needed to run the player.

My mp3 wont turn on


I had the same problem. I just bought one for myself and used it for an hour while turning it off and on successfully about 5 times, and then it just stayed on. It was on for 5 hours stuck in the same position , frozen in time, until I could get home. I unscrewed the back, took the battery out, put it back in and now it seems to work normal. Hope you tried to do that. I think it will fix it. Hopefully it's not an ongoign problem. I've only had mine for one day so far.
