Question about SanDisk Sansa e250 MP3 Player

1 Answer

Slow response when browsing to new list

When I try to go to a new list in my music it takes forever before it finally responds. Frequently I think that I did not actually click and do it again, then as soon as it enters the list ir remembers the second click and loads the frist song rather than letting me browse.

Reset the player first, and see if that helps.

    You might want to consider a firmware upgrade - I'm going to give you a list of "soft" fixes for your problem (note: the volume + method was a generic method for Sansas; in the e200 series, the buttons are REC and HOLD instead of volume + - double-check Sandisk's website for the exact method):

    These are the most common methods for recovering Sandisk's Sansa Mp3
    Players. I have been almost universally successful in recovering Sansa
    players using one or a combination of these methods. These methods do
    not work if you are having synchronization or music format issues -
    they are for recovering a player that will not power up, freezes,
    flashes, is not recognized by the computer, and a host of other issues.

    Reset the Sansa Player first. On most models, restart is done by holding the power button in for 15 seconds or longer. Check your specific manual to be sure. The manuals are available from the Sansa website if they have been misplaced.

    Download the Sansa Recovery Tool from the Sansa website.

    Format - Erases Everything: Connect your Sansa player to the
    computer and open Windows Media Player. Click on the Sync tab. Pull
    down the drop down menu underneath the Sync tab by moving your cursor
    over the Sync tab and left clicking on the little black arrow
    underneath the Sync tab. Highlight "Sansa 1GB" (wording may vary
    slightly), and then select "Format." - this should erase everything.

    Firmware Upgrade- Erases Everything: Get the latest firmware
    upgrade from Sansa - it updates the firmware and erases every song in
    the player all at once. Note: this method doesn't work if already have
    the latest firmware. Go to this website and click "Firmware Updater" to
    find out:

    If these fail, then:

    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.

    If you get the problem where MTP Device keeps popping up continuously, uninstall the “MTP Device” by going to Start à Control Panel àSystem à Hardware à Device Manager (you computer may vary slightly, depending on Windows Version).

    You may have to restart your computer after each of these methods
    to get them to work properly. Disconnect your Sansa player BEFORE
    shutting down your computer.

I am a Pinterest pinner. When I post a pin, I get a PIN FAILED TO UPLOAD message and then a minute later the app will send more copies of my original pin - from 3 - 15 copies. What do I do? Please answer...

My guess is you hit pin several times while it didn't look like it was working and that's why it pinned more times. Every time you hit pin/entered it, it was actually working on their end. Sometimes patience goes a long way. I don't know if you ever experienced this but sometimes you might try to open a window and it just won't work, or so we think, but after it finally works, you get 5 windows popping up-only because each time it registered but we didn't think it did because it took forever. After one time of clicking, if it takes forever go take a break and come back. You can stop it and then refresh to see if it actually did take.

But if you find a pin that will just not pin after clicking it only once, go here:

Took our magicJack with us to England. It worked fine back home in the US. But here it says ''connect to the internet and double click here [error 3]''. We're connected to the internet (Firefox works...

You may be getting the verify your Login message, because according to their knowledge-base, to call from another country outside of the US and Canada, you have to actually prepay for to use International minutes with MagicJack.

This may be why you are not getting the connectivity to place your calls through the MagicJack from within England. Take a look at that link.

My JGBP26 seems to take forever to pre-heat. When

Does your version of this model have the electronic control? -I need the rest of the model number to look it up...

If so, 3 possibilities come to mind:

1. Bake or Broil igniter/glowbar could be bad.
2. Temperature sensor could be bad.
3. Control board could be bad.

Can you see if the glowbar shuts off early or hear the relay click off before reaching temperature?
Does the control display the correct temperature or does it "think" the oven is much hotter than it actually is? If the latter, then #1 is not likely the cause.

#2 can be tested with an ohmeter (should be about 1080 ohms at 70F unplugged from control board).

If #1 and #2 ruled out, then likely cause is the control board (ERC). This is a common symptom on these units. If so, we may be able to rebuild it for you.

LG Viewty pc connection problems

Hi, I just had the exact same problem..
I tried like FOREVER and I even said, if this try doesnt work; i'm giving up, and then... it finally worked.. haha :) so, this is what I did.
(dont connect your phone yet but set your phone as data service) You open the program LG pc suite, and then click connection wizard > usb > and then here, you connect the both ends of the usb.. one end on your pc and the other on your phone, and then you press next. Hopefully it says something like Com Port Number and Phone Model. You click next and finish. So, now you are connected to the phone to your pc. To get photos to your pc, you click content. images. and copy and paste to where you like (pictures in your pc) and then your done :D this also goes to other files too :D if this doesnt work, then go to your right top corner box, close all applications and go to home screen! :D

I hope this really helped because I just learned it few minutes ago and I was about to scream because I tried so many ways. Hope this helped and Good Luck :D
