Question about SanDisk Sansa c250 (2 GB) MP3 Player (SDMX7-2048)

1 Answer

My son's c250 shuts itself off after a minute.

This has happened for the past couple of days.
It's fully charged which he was also having problems doing.
It will turn on and go to the main menu, but it will only play a minute and shut itself completely off.
It will start to play, then if you touch any of the buttons, it will ALSO shut itself off.
This was a refurb that he got for Christmas.
Any suggestions would be great. I want my 4Gb one back.

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/Retail/DriverDownloads.aspx

Software glitch or battery issue. Backup and save all your data and music. Then reboot and re-update the software. If that still don't fix it, then you got a problem with your battery power management. The system thinks the battery is low and automatically shuts off to preserve the contents. Try charging battery fully overnight with the power off and see if that helps. If not, then you will have to see the Apple dorks at the Apple store for a replacement phone. Cheers.

Problem now solved. I switched the camera on and off a few times and took several test photos. After a few minutes the problem resolved itself. I suspect the cause was condensation, but cannot be sure.

My LG Rumor randomly decides to shut itself off. I'll be sitting here wondering my phone hasn't rung and then I'll see that the stupid thing is off again!


Maybe u need 2 charge it fully a couple of times or turn on key guard if it was in your pocket or something like that. I cannot really tell if u do not specify more clearly what is wrong with it. Sorry
