Question about SanDisk Sansa m200 (2 GB) MP3 Player

2 Answers

No response, no turn-on, dead player! help!

I was loading files, when the transfer locked up, and the computer threw an error. i couldn't do anything but unplug the player! After I did this, i tried plugging it back in, and half of the world "initializing" popped up on the screen, the first half was missing! it did not do anything more. so i unplugged it again. Now when I plug it in, nothing happens. The computer recognizes that new hardware is plugged in, but cannot recognize what it is. Nothing comes on the mp3 player's screen. It will not power up when i hit the power button. It has no response, it acts like there is no battery in it. I have taken the battery out, and put it back in. Nothing happens when any of the buttons are pressed, or when it is plugged into the computer. Is there anything I can do to get this thing working again! It is the M260 if that matters.

Hi guys! I've got a brand-new solution to this dead-end problem. BUT, the downside is that you'll need another similar player. Here's what I've done to unfreeze my Sansa m230. 1. I've opened the cases of both our Sansa m230s. 2. Connected the healthy one to the computer via USB. 3. After it was connected I've hot-swapped the "Samsung k9k4g08u0m-pcb0" memory chip with the one which was causing the problem. 4. Finally, I've formatted it through WMP10. Only synchronizing in MTP mode using WMP11 since. Hope that helps. Amakorkos

Bought Sony Walkman NWZ-A828 Player for my wife June 2009 to play whilst in her car.The unit has just packed up,absolutely no response -dead. Have tried the reset button & suggestions in the...

Not sure if yours is the same problem but mine wouldnt turn on unless it was plugged in to the computer and even then it would respond so I search sony website and found this -

Cause:
Battery is 100% discharged. Therefore, PC's USB with 5V/500mA set up has not enough power to start up the charging process because loading current is greater than the set up, therefore USB is disabled immediately due to sudden current load.
Remedy:
  1. Battery must not be discharged 100%
  2. If it happens then the supplied AC adaptor must be used firstly because it is providing 5V/800mA power. After a couple of minutes the unit can be connected to PC without problem then it can continue the charging during file transfer, etc.
So i bought a usb adapter charger plugged it in and it now is back to its former self!

My player got problem

Connect your computer to the sansa, then search for the files using the search key from the start key, search for all files with an * for detecting all the files. Select all and transfer all files to a folder. then delete off all the files and format if the sansa gets detected. if so your memory is back to normal. transfer all your files again back but make sure that the next time you load only the good ones. Hope this helps you off.Good day

My player starts to load, but then doesn't completely turn on or

Try this 1.Push the hold switch towards the headphone jack so you see orange
2.Press and hold record on the left of the player
3.With record still being held down, plug into the computer
4.Once you see welcome to recovery mode on the screen of the player, let go of record
At this point you can reload the manual firmware by copying the firmware files to the detected removable disk.
Firmwares- Version 1 Version 2
Download the correct version or else it will render your device useless.Version can be found on the back plate at botton right.. Extract the downloaded file and transfer the contents to removable disk detected.After transferring,disconnect the player and let it upgrade the firmware

Syncing with Windows Media Player

Place the music files that you want to transfer into the My Music folder of your computer - Windows will re-read them, and then you can synchronize to your device. Also, make sure the hold/lock switch is not engaged on the mp3 player - it probably isn't, but just check.

Transferring music to new pc

You must use the music transfer software that came with the CD (also avail on Rio website) - which will not load on newer, Vista running computers.
