White Screen of Doom

A few months ago, I added a cd onto my device. I'd jsut gotten the cd uploaded onto my computer, and the format said .MP3, instead of .mp3, but I put it on my device anyways. When I turned on my device, it refreshed the database as usual. But, after about a second, the screen slowly started to fade to white, and then I cannot do anything with it. Not even turn it off. This is still happening after months of cd player torture. Help meeeee

Have you tried unscrewing the back, the removing the battery. one thing that i did was i held the button down, it seems like it is not restarting, but if you hold it down for atleast 2 min, then it will actually restart, otherwise remove the battery, its just like a cell phone battery, just pluck it out

  • Try reflashing the firmware for your device you can find the latest firmware and flashing utilities from the manufacturer’s website. Make sure that you back your music up first because when you do this you are setting it back to factory settings.
  • Try resetting the device it’s usually a small pinhole on the back or side of the device try holding that in for about 10 seconds.

You need to use the Sansa Media Converter, supplied with the device, to convert pictures (and videos) to a format the Sansa can handle.

My Zen plays music but has a blank screen?


This is what you call the WSOD or the White Screen Of Doom. Is it still under warranty? If yes, go and have it returned or RMAd. Or you can try to download the Recovery Tool found here

Randomly deleted songs and cannot upload more


Get the latest firmware upgrade from Sandisk's website to be on the safe side, but I'm thinking that your song licenses expired. Convert all of your songs to mp3 format, and you will not have these kinds of problems.

Mp3 wont play downloaded music


The device has 2 modes on it MSC and MTP, if you changed modes and uploaded songs in the other mode, they are only visible on the PC in that mode. But, the PC will show the total amount of free space on the device.

If this is not the issue, I would try formatting your device to remove everything and start over.

You can FORMAT thru My Computer>Device Name (e280)>Right Click and select FORMAT.



Best of Luck.
