That happened to me and I just took the battery out and then put it back in. the screws on the back should come out if you find something small enough to unscrew it with. I used a hair clip

If holding the power button doesn't work (and sometimes it doesn't) then if you have your power cord with you just plug it in, charging/writing forces a reboot.

Holding the button turns it off...but dont fix the problem!

Posted on Dec 11, 2007

The Sandisk website says to hold the power button down for 20 seconds and the player will reboot. Mine went off at about 15 seconds and then when I turned it back on it started up fine.

I had the same problem happen for me on my e260. Played arround with the On the Go lists, and as soon as I started to play the list the player froze. The only solution is to unscrew the back plate and remove the battery for a moment the putting it back in. That or wait for the batery to run out, but at full charge that could take 10-20 hours, depending on wether your backlight stays on or dims out... Not sure if Firmware fixes this problem as it doesn't seem too common, I hadn't run any updates, but now I most defineatly will... :/ (This is the second "suprise" this player has given me, the first was no FM radio in the EU! -_- )
