Like other MP3 players, the SanDisk Sansa series of music and video players lets you listen to your music while on the go. With their easy-to-use control interfaces, Sansa players let you add, change or delete tracks in a playlist quickly. However, there might be times when you want to lock the player so that you don't stop playback or change the current track inadvertently -- like when exercising or jogging. Locking a Sansa player ensures that music plays continuously even if you touch controls on the face of the unit accidentally. To make changes to a queued play list or stop playback on a Sansa with the controls disabled, you must first unlock the player manually.
Sansa Clip Zip and Fuze+ Players Step 1 Press and hold the power button on the Clip Zip or Fuze+ player a few seconds to power on the device. Scroll to "Music" on the home screen and press the "Select" button. The Select button is a rectangular or square button in the center of the button-control pad beneath the viewing screen on the Sansa player.
Step 2 Press the "Play" button to play the first track in your play list. Alternatively, press the right or left arrow button to navigate to another song in the list, and then press the "Play" button.
Step 3 Press the "Power" button on the top of the player once quickly to lock the unit. The player will play music continuously while disabling all navigation controls on the face of the unit. A padlock icon appears on the face of the player indicating the lock feature is active. Don't hold the Power button after you press it, as this will turn off the player.
Step 4 Unlock the player by quickly pressing the "Power" button. The Unlocked icon appears on the player screen.
Sansa Clip+ Step 1 Power on the Sansa Clip+ player.
Step 2 Choose "Music" on the Main Menu screen, then press the "Select" button. The Select button is the square one in the center of the control pad on the face of the player.
Step 3 Press "Play" to begin playing tracks from your play list.
Step 4 Press and hold the "Home" button just below the viewing screen. After a couple of seconds, a padlock icon appears at the top of the viewing screen indicating the Sansa Clip+ locking feature is active.
Step 5 Press and hold the "Home" button again to unlock the Clip+ player.
Tips
  • With the Sansa Clip Zip and Fuze+ players, locking the devices disables all navigation controls on the unit (i.e. Play and Fast Forward), but not the volume control. If you lock the Clip Zip or Fuze+, you can still adjust the volume as needed. By contrast, if you lock the Clip+ player, the unit disables all controls on the player -- including the volume control buttons.

How to unlock mp3 series 2008


Sansa MP3 music players, made by SanDisk, are capable of playing files stored in the MP3 file format. One of the features on a Sansa MP3 player is that the screen is lockable. This prevents you from accidentally closing out a music file while listening to it. You can unlock your Sansa by pushing a switch.

Turn the Sansa on.

Locate the "Power" switch. It is on the left side of the Sansa and has an icon of a bar going through a circle. Push it down to put it into the "Locked" position.

Push the "Power" switch up to put the Sansa in the "Unlocked" position.

Hope it helped.

Try doing a hard reset on a Sansa m250:
  1. Turn off the Sansa. Just pull the battery out for a second and then reinstalling the battery without pushing any further buttons.
  2. Plug the Sansa into a computer4.gif, and open "My Documents" in the computer.
  3. Open the Sansa file as if it were a drive, then go to the "MUSIC4.gif Specific storage" file.
  4. Right click the "MUSIC Specific storage" file, and press "Format."
This should hard reset the Sansa m250. This solution has worked for me.
I do not know if this will work on other Sansa m200 type .mp3 players.

Frozen screen


Hold down the power button for 20 or more seconds; when you release the power button, the Sansa Connect will restart on its own. If it doesn't restart, you did not hold down the power button long enough -- try again.

 

Make sure there's a battery in the player. This doesn't work when it is plugged into the USB port.

Mp3 won't turn off and the screen doesn't work


My Sansa wouldn't turn off and I got it to do so by pressing the center button while holding the main menu button down. But then once I did, it wouldn't boot back up.
