Question about SanDisk Sansa e260 MP3 Player

1 Answer

Screen won't turn on

We got this player in March, off ebay, sold as a refurb. Everything was fine- it was treated with care, kept away from food, liquids, pets & kids- never dropped or left in extreme temps. One day the screen wouldn't turn on. The player itself does but it's impossible to make it do anything without seeing what you're clicking on.

Big gray spot on screen


Unfortunately, It's likely that your screen has been irreparably damaged. Probably, pressure was applied to the screen and ruined that part of it.

If you like to fix electronics, it may be possible to buy a non-working Sansa on eBay, open the case and replace the screen.

You can probably continue to use the player without fixing the gray spot. If it bothers you, the easiest solution would be to get another player....

I have had my Philips GoGear Ariaz 8GB player for only one month and it was working fine but now it will not turn on or take a charge.


I have just had the same problem as well tried reset / repair nothing at all contacted Philips told it was a major fault with internal power unit. Mine was Manufacturer refurbished, which philips also told me they don't do, they throw them away so how can mine be @manufacturer refurbed?

When I start my iriver H10, it is stuck on initializing


hard drive is probably bad -- common problem. cheapest solution is to buy as-is h10 from ebay with a working hard drive (perhaps it has a touchpad problem), open the unit up and replace the drive.

See this forum for info on how to open the player with a torx tool and a plastic pry unit. forum

Plan b - sell unit on ebay in as-is condition and use money toward a top notch 20gb refurb unit for about $30-50 from sellers like metromania

"Black screen of death" iriver H10 6GB color


sounds like incorrect charging voltage and amperage may have fried some of your components.

Could try selling it on ebay as-is to make some money toward another unit.

You can get a top notch 20gb refurb unit from ebay sellers (like metromania) for $40-60. I have 2 refurbs and 1 built from parts from as-is units.

You're probably going to need to call Apple, 800-APL-CARE or take it to an Apple retail store.

Frozen on.


Problem resolved. I just let it sit until battery went down far enough for "Battery" alert to come on screen.
From there I put a charge on it and everything works fine now. Probably I should have kept it charged up.

If your iPod is frozen or won't turn on, your iPod may be paused or on "hold." Slide the Hold switch and check the screen.

If your iPod is frozen or won't turn on, connect your iPod to your computer, then press and hold the "Menu" and "Select" buttons simultaneously for 10 seconds to reset the iPod. Resetting an iPod will not affect your files or preferences.

If your iPod fails to hold a charge and it's more than a year old, you may need a new battery.

If all else fails, file a complaint with ebay stating you were sold something that was not properly described - unless the seller made it clear there were issues with the unit.

Hope this helps some!
