SanDisk Sansa E260: Hold Switch is NOT Working

MY mp3 player is messed up, so I decided I was going to reset the whole thing. I was going to format it, but the Hold switch will slide from side to side, but it won't actually do what it's supposed to do. If I push a button, there will still be action even when the Hold switch is on. Is there any help, ASAP!?

    "Download the Sansa Recovery Tool from the Sansa website.

    Format - Erases Everything: Connect your Sansa player to the computer and open Windows Media Player.
    Click on the Sync tab. Pull down the drop down menu underneath the Sync
    tab by moving your cursor over the Sync tab and left clicking on the
    little black arrow underneath the Sync tab. Highlight "Sansa 1GB"
    (wording may vary slightly), and then select "Format." - this should
    erase everything.

    Firmware Upgrade- Erases Everything: Get the latest firmware upgrade
    from Sansa - it updates the firmware and erases every song in the
    player all at once. Note: this method doesn't work if already have the
    latest firmware. Go to this website and click "Firmware Updater" to
    find out:http://www.sandisk.com/Retail/DriverDown..."

I connect sansae260 to PC, Nothing apears on Sansa's Screen


You may need to now reset the player, that may have been a bit much for it.
To reset your Sansa Mp3 player.
  1. Slide and hold the Power switch up for approximately 20 seconds.
  2. Release the Power switch.
  3. To turn the player on, slide the Power switch up then release instantly.
If that does not get your player working again, try and Format to clear any corrupt files that may be present.

My sansa e260 stopped working after unsuccessful formatting


I have guys, I just spoke with the Sansa representative. Even if you have Windows Vista, you do not need a drive for e260 given that Vista carries that drivers for it. If you have tried the steps above, but you Sansa still did not format successfully after using the recoverty tool. This is what you do:

Set you Sansa e260 in recovery mode

- set it to hold
- hold rec
- connect to computer while you are holding rec
- device should be now in recovrey mode
- go to my computer
- go to the folder 16B format
- you will see a text file
- don't worry about
- add a new folder and name Sansa.fmt
- wait up to 2 minutes
- message on your device should say formatting
- wait a few minutes for formatting to take place
- stop the device by removing it safely using windows Safely device removal tool on bottom right corner of your screen
- disconneting your Sansa and you should see a message upgrade finished, Sansa has been restored or something like that
- Power your Sansa on, and Bwala!!! your Sansa is back to normal.

Good luck

Try this;

Run the recovery tool from the SanDisk website. Make sure you select "format" when prompted.

http://www.sandisk.com/Assets/File/Downloads/firmware/e200fw01.00.12.exe

You need to put the device into "recovery mode" before you run the tool.

- Turn the device off (hold power for 20 seconds)
- Slide the hold switch into "hold" position.
- Press and hold the "record" button while connecting it to your computer. Keep holding the "record" button until you see the "new hardware found" on your computer.

Then run the recovery tool. Select format when prompted.

Best of Luck.

Screen won't work.


Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard.
