My sansa m230 player is not getting on


if its not turning on, then you have a power issue. but if it doesn't want to sync its a different issue. when you turn it on go to menu>settings>usb mode then change it to the other option (not auto)

My sansa MP3 player is locked. How do I unlock


I loved that mp3 player, it's a great basic one. Anyways...

To unlock it, it require nothing related to your computer, it's on the side of your player, the old button.

Near the mic. I believe right now it's on a side with orange, tick it to the side that shows white. Open it again, should be unlocked.

SanDisk Initializing


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.

Locked


If the onscreen message says ?Locked? and then shuts off, you need to locate the Hold Button on the left side of your player. Slide that button up to unlock your device.
