Won't even turn on

I've tried the "little hole to reset" and pressed the hold + rec + play button, those worked ONCE. but never worked again.

now it won't start at all. the screen is black, i tried the little hole, i tried the 3 button technique, and now it won't even start up or BLINK.

i've tried many other solutions i've read an none has worked. i just bought this unit today and i'm not very satisfied.

It comes with no charge on it, you have to plug it into your computer to charge it first, then you have power and it will work (:

I would definitely return it - it takes far less time than going through the steps that we could suggest. If you want to try this go ahead, but if it doesn't work just return it:
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.

    The volume + method is the way to get the computer to detect it - it is a way to force the detection

My Belkin F5D8236-4 v3 Router won't turn on. We had a storm last night and the power went out but the router won't turn on. I have tried to plug it into different outlets to see if that would work...


Try resetting the router. There should be a little hole somewhere on it with a button inside that you can press with a paperclip. Try holding that button down while you unplug then plug the router in while holding it (if possible). If that doesn't work, I'd suspect the storm might've damaged the router somehow. Was it plugged into a surge protector, and/or have you noticed any other issues with anything else that was turned on at the time?

How do I get My e260 in recovery mode, it wont even come on?


1. Press and hold the Power/Menu button for approximately 20 seconds. 2. Release the Power/Menu button. 3. Press the Power/Menu button again to turn on the player. I do not think your model supports the recovery mode but you can try. 1. Press and hold the Power/Menu button for 15 seconds to turn the device completely off. 2. Slide the Hold switch so the orange portion shows. 3. On your PC, double-click My computer 4. On your Sansa player, press and hold the REC button while connecting it to the PC. 5. Release the REC button when a 16MB-FORMAT drive partition appears under My Computer. This may not work on your player not sure of the Model cut off.

Be patient and wait till the game loads itself. If your lens is in good condition then it will play game in first go else try again till it PLAY your game. If still your Grand Turismo 4 DVD wont work then you must clean your PS2 lens.Watch following video to learn about cleaning lens:
Thank you and Good Luck!

You can reset the mp3 player by holding down the "menu" button and the "a/b" button together for a few seconds then push the power button and it should turn on. Mine was doing the same thing and this worked.
