    One day I was listening to my mp3, then a few songs later, it suddenly stopped. I thought it was paused or something, but when I saw it, the sound knob was lit and the screen was still dark. Then I started pressing all the buttons, but nothing would happen.

    My mp3 player is stuck and is the light is staying on. I tried charging it with the USB cord and it did not work. Any other suggestions? I will try the battery one. Is there a warranty?

I had the same problem with mine freezing. It happened when I kept pressing the back track button (on left side) to go back to an earlier song. It then froze in the middle of a song, couldn't hear the song, the time of the song was frozen, etc., and the unit stayed lit, despite pressing all the buttons. I tried holding down power but nothing happened. I read another person's post that you need to hold it down 15-30 seconds. I did this and it worked, you just have to hold it down until it shuts down, which was about 15 seconds as suggested, could be longer for others.
For me, next time I wont keep clicking the tracks repeatedly, I'll simply go out of the song and back to the song I want through the menu.
Thank you for the good posts. Glad I didn't have to mess with the battery like others....

I just brought the Sansa mp3player. I've had it for less than 1 week, when it just froze....I opened the back and took the battery out as suggested and it worked fine. Thanks.

My e260 froze up too. Holding down the power button for 15-30 seconds allowed mine to be turned off. Then it started up just fine.

If your sansa is frozen you may want to open the back with a small screwdriver and take off the battery and then put the battery back on that sould make it work

Double-click Sansa icon (shows up as "Removable Drive" on some computers)
Select Tools --> Folder Options --> View --> check "Show Hidden Files and Folders"
Double-click Music folder
You should see your music files
Right-click your desktop and create a New Folder - name it some useful name

Sansa e260 firmware


Mine was a bit more FUBAR I guess. I have a Sansa e260. I had rockbox on it, went to switch back to the firmware. Uninstalled rockbox and on reboot... the e260 was refreshing the database and then came to a frozen green screen.

My e260 was already in MSC mode. I did the steps above but was still stuck.

The solution that worked was one posted by "Slaughter" on anythingbutipod.

The ultimate fix for all e2xx v1 problems - Format, enter recovery mode, downgrade firmware Link (you'll need to format the drive), reinstall newest firmware via newest Sansa Updater, reload tunes.

Stuck Screen


It seems as thought the player itself has actually frozen. I have the same player and it has never done this to me. If you havent allready try leaving it alone in a quiet place for a day or two until it runs out of battery. Then plug it in to your PC to charge and it should be okay. As this has happend to me with other players. If it isnt however, try to resolve the issue by somehow updating the firmware. Try googling "SanDisk Sansa e260 Firmware Upgrade" and see what you can find. If there is something which looks hopeful try it, but if it doesnt work, the perhaps the only option is to return or exchange the player at its place of purchase. P.S Check the USB modes.

Check how much memory you have left. if you don't have a lot, than you have to plug it into your computer and right click on the my computer sign and go to manage. next go to disk management on the left hand column. right click on the sansa icon and go to format. make sure that the file system is under FAT32.
