Recovery mode with out using the power button


An iPod Touch's "Recovery Mode" is for alleviating major operating system issues.
Recovery Mode rolls back your iPod's operating system, stripping problematic updates and downloads from the unit.
The goal of this total system recovery is to revert the iPod to a stable, usable version.
Before you use Recovery Mode, exhaust other troubleshooting methods.
In some cases, Recovery Mode is triggered automatically after a failed system update or system restore.
When it goes into Recovery Mode automatically, you cannot use your iPod until you complete the recovery process.
You can get your iPod Touch out of Recovery Mode using Apple's free iTunes software.

Turn on your computer and open iTunes.
If you are prompted to download any new iTunes updates, install the updates before proceeding.
Plug an iPod USB cable into your computer.
Do not plug the other end into your iPod Touch yet.

Turn off your iPod Touch. If the iPod Touch is already shut down, skip this step.
Press and hold the Home button on your iPod Touch, and plug the other end of the USB cable into your iPod Touch.
Release the Home button after you see a white USB icon and the iTunes logo appear on your iPod Touch's screen.
At this time, a pop-up should appear on your computer screen, explaining that the software has detected an iPod in Recovery Mode.
Click "OK."
Click on the iPod Touch from underneath the "Devices" heading on the left-hand side of your screen.
Click on the "Home" tab, and then click "Restore."
Once it's restored, your iPod Touch goes out of Recovery Mode and you can start using it again.
The restoration process takes a few minutes.
Do not disconnect your iPod Touch until a prompt appears, letting you know the system restored successfully.

My sansa E280 will not turn on


I have more advice on my Tips & Tricks for fixing Sansa players, but here is a likely candidate:
Download the Sansa Recovery Tool from Sandisk's website (make sure the Sansa is not plugged into the computer yet). Once the Recovery Tool is downloaded, connect the Sansa to the computer while holding in the REC button and continue to hold it even after th player is plugged in. It should go into Recovery Mode in 10-15 seconds or so.

Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard.

Recovery mode


to switch to recovery mode flick the switch on the top towards the headphone jack (so you see the orange), then hold down the REC button on the side, and plug into you computer. KEEP IT HELD DOWN UNTIL THE PLAYER IS RECOGNIZED! the player will be recognized by dif name. you are now in recovery mode.

What i suggest you do is to look at this video on how to format your player...all data on it will be erased (like songs and videos) but it will be worth it!

NOTE: these are for when the player is in MSC mode
For Windows XP

For Windows Vista

I did this for my player and now it works fine!!!

Songs won't Sync


To enter recovery mode:

1. Make sure the hold button is on, (look for orange) and hold down the record button and plug into the computer.

2. A 16MB Format drive should appear in My Computer under Devices with Removable Storage, you are now in recovery mode.

Now download the following File:


http://www.sandisk.com/assets/file/downloads/firmware/e200fw01.00.12.exe


Run the file after downloading and follow the on screen instructions, making sure to connect your player in recovery mode.

Make sure you select the option to Format when giving the option.

after running the program, remove hold from on top of the player and disconnect the player when completed and completion should be set for the player.

After running this, try downloading songs again. Remember to make sure you authorize your player and ensure that the songs being transferred are available for transfer.
