Question about SanDisk Sansa e250 MP3 Player

1 Answer

Broken Screen When I turn on the player e250, up pops a picture to make the screen look like its broke, the screen it self is fine, thats the best way I can explain it, I hope that helps. there are no words nothing else, then it shuts off. My daughter said she had it in her pocket, and someone hit the player, and then this started, could it have got hit hard enough not to show damage on the outside but damage the inside? Sorry this is so long, hope you can help. thank you.

Yep - the internal lcd is cracked - must be replaced

broken screens = out of luck - you can call Sandisk the manufacturer, they will tell you the same; you can call Best Buy geek squad, they will tell you the same; you can look up "Mp3 Repair" in your local or online yellow pages - they will tell you the same
sorry

Cracked screen LCD


Hello shaffycat,

Sorry to hear about the screen on your Sansa E250 MP3 player. It sounds like the Liquid Crystal Display screen has broken. It's possible that the damage is repairable but to be honest due to the high cost of electronic repair it may not actually be cost effective to do so.

You can contact SanDisk to get service information. They can give you a basic idea of what it would cost to get an estimate on repairs and the average cost. Their webite is http://www.sandisk.com.

Best Regards,
Ken

Sandisk sansa e250 blank screen


If you have a blank screen but the blue lighted ring is on. Remove the back, the battery, remove the 4 tiny screws. pop the front plate off. Carefully remove the circuit board from the case starting from the bottom. On the back of the circuit board you will find a smaller circuit board that is plugged in. This board sometime becomes partially unplugged do to rough handling. Press this board back into its socket carefully. Reassemble the unit and everything should be fine.I repaired 2 Sansa E280 unit from Woot grab bags with this method.

Cracked screen, and other stuff.


It's very likely that when you dropped the iPod and damaged the screen, you also damaged a small component inside of the hard drive. The clicking noises are probably those of the hard drive trying to work and the picture of a "dead" iPod (I assume it's a picture of an iPod with a sad face) is also one that pops up when one is having hard drive problems. If you're comfortable enough opening your iPod, you could probably replace the LCD and hard drive but it might be a better idea for you to just buy a new one and sell the broken one as-is on eBay as you're replacing 2/3 main components of the iPod.

Swapping parts


The screen is soldered onto the mother board. Not easily replaceable at he user level. The internal memory, on the other hand, is easy to swap between devices. Best of Luck.

Sansa e250 cracked screen


I've tried to get a replacement LCD for my SANSA, impossible so far.

There are some PARTS/REPAIR SANSA's on ebay, but must of them with the same problem. There was also a working LCD, I just fail on bidding.

If you can get a working LCD, the replacement is possible with a blower, directing heat to the specifyc connectors area, you can remove the broken one while the glue (some kind of silicon) is warm and flexible, you have to be careful when putting the new one, pins must be aligned, also you should do that whith both (broken and wkring) at the same time, so then you can use the glue still on the pins (golden connectors) area.

I got to remove the broken one and noticed (with my fingers) that the silicon can be used again, but since I didn't use a blower some of the pins (connectors) where damaged. Only halve of the process is confirmed.

Good luck, we'll wait 4 your results if you get a working LCD somewhere..
