Question about SanDisk Sansa e260 MP3 Player

1 Answer

Need to replace battery

I cannot figure out how to take the back off of my player... Its a Sansa E260R... It no longer holds a charge and I am happy to replace the battery if I can just figure out what the manual is referring to. It states "Press to remover the cover on the tab of the battery compartment on the back of the player". As far as I can see the back shows no sign of a battery compartment and has 4 screws holding the back plate on. Help please! (PS What kind of battery does it take?)

    Oh and I did try taking out the 4 screws on the back and the back plate doesn't come off... so that's no help.

My Sansa Clip just stopped playing and shut down. I cannot get it to turn back on or to charge on my computer. This is the 2nd one I have had this happen with. What is the problem?


On my e260r, that happened while I was just getting done with a bike ride. Figured it was the humidity from being in a pocket. I simply fixed it by pulling out and immediately reinstalling the battery.
On my Clip+, the first bike ride that happened. I just held down the power button for about 20 seconds then tried to turn it on and that somehow fixed it.
Same case as yours... just stopped playing. Wouldn't respond to controls nor do anything when plugged into computer. Just dead. Try it holding down the power button and trying to restart and if that fails, do the battery thing.

The software on my sansa e260r is completely gone, when i start it up it reads" load main image failed, switch to recovery mode


Hello,

Firmware on the player can be reinstalled in 2 METHODS.
In both methods the player should be in USB connection mode MSC = recovery mode.
How to switch the player into MSC mode:
0. Player not connected to a computer.
1. When the e260R is not OFF, on the player press and hold the
Power/Menu button for 15 seconds to turn the device completely off.
2. Slide the Hold switch, so the orange portion shows.
3. On your PC, double-click My Computer
4. On your Sansa player, press and hold the REC button while connecting it to the PC.
5. Release the REC button when a 16MB-FORMAT drive partition appears under My Computer.

On a computer running Windows, you can use the Sansa Firmware Updater to get an automatic download of the firmware for the e260R.
How to use the Sansa Firmware Updater [METHOD 1]:
http://kb.sandisk.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/306
If not installed yet, get the Sansa Firmware Updater to download:
http://mp3support.sandisk.com/sansa/Application/SansaUpdaterInstall.exe
Right click the link above and Save target as... ; save the Installer to a location on your computer, install and run the updater on your computer. Select Firmware in the updater and Download Now, to start downloading the software for the player.

When you prefer to download manually or if you have another operating system, the firmware can be downloaded from the forums site [METHOD 2]:

Battery doesn't hold a charge - 1 hr play from the start - even thought I have charged up to 5 hours


How old is it ?? Try and charge it over night-- It should operate longer than 1 hr. Maybe bring it back for exchange.. ?

Through the menu system on the Sansa, change your transfer setting from MTP to UMS. When you connect your Sansa, you should now see a drive in My Computer into which you can drag and drop music files.
