Those screens don't handle drops very well. Once they start to get lines, they are often on their way out. If it is still under warranty, open a repair ticket with Sandisk. They will probably replace it if you haven't had it too long.

My sansa e250 mp3 player just fell down, after that, when i restarted it it is just showing the blue light but not showing the display on the screen. Any help would be appreciated.


Drop it again from a similar height

OK this is going to be hard to believe....the exact thing happened to mine. It dropped about half a meter onto a concrete floor and showed up with a blue screen and wouldnt shut off.
I unscrewed the back panel and unplugged the battery hoping that it would reset. After several restarts and unplugged batteries it was still unresponsive with the blue screen of death. So like any good tech i tried to reproduce the sequence causing the failure. I dropped it onto my work bench and plugged the battery back in. Worked perfectly after that and has continued to work perfectly since (nearly a year later).
I made sure i covered it with one of those cheap silicone covers after to hopefully absorb some shock after i got it working again. After a year of brutal treatment on military exercises this is the one and only problem i've ever had with my sansa.
Good Luck

Sansa is acting weird....


Well, you need to return it for a new one. If it has happened in so many few weeks, you need to. It sounds like you may have downloaded a virus. you are going to reboot it and or restart it, you have tried this so it sounds like it is just messed up. exchange it or send it in to get it reset. It will run you about $35. Thanks, Connie

Screen doesn't work


If this has happened to you, please alert Sandisk ASAP. My Sansa did that and eventually, it got to the point of where it wouldn't turn on without being stupid like that, and then, CS said that it was messed 4ever

Help with sansa e250


Call Sandisk and tell them about your problem. I had the same exact problem. The headphone jack inside is loose. Talk to Sandisk and don't worry about the box, the customer is always right. But after they send you a new sansa e250, sell it on ebay and buy a durable mp3 player like the iriver t10 series. My old iriver dropped on the floor plenty of times and it's still working after 3 years.
