Question about SanDisk Sansa e260 MP3 Player

1 Answer

Sansa e260 takes 15 mins turning on.

My Sansa e260 will not turn on an hour after listening to it without me having to hold down the center and power button down for about 10 mins each and it is really starting to frustrate me. I usually have to hold down the center button for about 5 mins, and then the power button for 10, and the blue light will turn on the little circle around the center button. After that its 10 mins holding the center button, and 15 holding the power button. I'm getting really frustrated.


Please help?

Once the blue circle is there, you just need to wait, it'll turn on
if not, take it to a best buy

My e260 gets to the refresh database screen and starts to fade out to a white screeen and restarts


1: RESET: Go into the settings and scroll down to reset all, push center button, scroll to yes, push center this will restore factory settings.....
2: Reset All
NOTE: THIS IS AN ADVANCED OPERATION AND RESTORES ALL SETTINGS
TO THE FACTORY DEFAULTS. NORMAL USERS ARE NOT RECOMMENDED
TO PERFORM THIS OPERATION!
If your device freezes up press the Menu button and hold for 15 seconds.
This is like a power down of the device. Once you perform the reset, the adjustments you made during last operation
will be gone.
This is what it states in the manual for the 260 sansa Page 29
3: Recovery Mode also resets system settings when unplugged... lock your sansa hold in the rec key on the left at the same time push the menu/power button this will take you to recovery mode then connect to the computer Start the update software

I saw it mentioned somewhere else....hold down the power button for about a minute. It should come back to life. It just worked for me, after I paniced a little, of course!
