If you look on the left side of the e130, there is a slide switch. Slide that switch up, that is your hold switch. In order to get your player powered on, you have to have it out of the key hold function. Now after you get to playing the music you want to hear, then you can reactivate the key hold. However, this will disable you from turning the volume up or down, or skipping through the songs. In order to be able to do this, then simply turn off the key hold again by sliding it down. I hope this helps!
I have a 1GB SD card in my E130 Sansa. I had fill it up to 998MB. The only problem is that I have to leave 3MB in the flash unit. I guess it need it for constructing the Music Library. The Flash (512MB) and the SD card (1GB) are both in FAT32. I guess that it may be a problem of the SD card itself and not a problem of the Sansa. 1) Have you tried to read the SD card with a card reader (without the Sansa)? 2) Have tried formatting the SD card (not a quick format, but a real one) in FAT32 (be careful about that). talueguito
I had this same problem. I moved all the files off the device. Went into Windows explorer. Right clicked on the Sansa device (the internal memory, not the expansion card memory. Clicked on format and on the screen that came up I picked "Quick Format." I have just now moved all the music (but not the system files) back onto the player. Turned it on and it is now working. Hope this helps
goes off because the backlight is on a timer. after 20 seconds or so it turns off if no buttons are pushed.
if the player will still play music but nothing shows on the screen, then the display is shot. The screen is not replaceable on these players. sorry, but it's most likely junk now. You could use it as a data storage device still. Best bet is to buy a used player off ebay or amazon.
It might have reformatted the songs by accident. Just try to redounload the songs you want and dont download the ones that you wanted to delete in the first place. This happens a lot with Sandisk e250 mP3 players
ok i had the same problem and i was searching what to do and found that you have to take out the battery and leave it for 5 minuites WITHOUT a battery in it and then put in the battery and it should work
I'm having the same problem! I've had my Sansa e130 for exactly one year today. I loaded new music on it last night and when I tried to turn it on, it said "searching internal memory for new music." I left it on and this morning it wouldn't come back on with new batteries or even when hooked to a computer! I sent an e-mail to the company for help since there is no reset button. I haven't heard anything yet. I suggest you contact SanDisk too. They may have a problem. And I can't believe someone actually suggested as a solution to put a new battery in it or hook it up! No duh! We're looking for real help here, not the obvious things to try.
