If your battery has been removed from the case, check the connectors to be sure they aren't bent enough to make them hit the plastic battery housing. My 260 wouldn't play unless it was connected to a wall charger and that was what the problem turned out to be. I carefully bent the terminals up just a little and my E260 went right back to work! The battery terminals may also be corroded or dirty. At any rate it is a good place to start and costs nothing to check.

E280 will not charge

has anyone managed to find a solution to this problem? everytime i connect my sansa to the computer via the power cable or i try charging it using a wall charger, the battery bar doesn't move and neither does the computer recognise the device. i seriously don't know what to do with the mp3 player anymore. i tried restarting it or doing the whole recovery mode thing but both methods were unsuccessful. i spoke to one of the sansa team online and they said that the player is "data corrupted" and that i should purchase a new one. ive been using sansa player for over 2 years now and ive never had this problem before. anyone could suggest anything?

My sansa is driving me crazy

Try connecting it without the battery. If it shows up, format it. To format My Computer>Device Name>Right Click and select FORMAT. Please add to the question if that didnt work. Best of Luck.
