Question about SanDisk Sansa e250 MP3 Player
I read somewhere that you can use the ipod speakers with this player. So I tried my sansa with an ipod dock. It didnt work. Once I took it out, I realized a burning smell. Then all the colors in the screen went bad. It is all blue now. The player still works and you can still see the menus. But you also hear some hissing sound which is not tolerable. Should I just throw it? Any chance they would exchange it? Can I fix it? Thanks a lot.
That's because The iPod Speakers are for AN IPOD !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Don't listen to what you hear.

Dear seren, If you are having trouble with your mp3 player, and you haven't taken it apart, all screws are intact on the backside of the sandisk e250, then you might be able to get it replaced by sandisk, but a hint: don;t ever put your sandisk into an Ipod dock, such as an Ihome. They might have the 30-pin connector similar to the sandisk's, and they might fit into your sandisk, but the Ihomes have a different voltage level than the sandisk's chargers. now, if you want to get an Ihome for your sandisk, Griffin, Macally and DOP brands have chargers, Ihomes, and dock ports made just for the sandisk. Hou do i know this, you ask. Because i have done the same exact thing, but i took mine apart to see what's wrong. It ruins the capacitors and overdrives it. but you can buy the right kind of capacitors at a nearby Radio Shack, but it very difficult to put it on. You have to get the one originally on it off, and that one's soldered ontop the motherboard. then you have to get the other one in just the right spot/ place, and then you have to solder the new capacitor onto the unit without get any solder on the gold linings. This is all i can do for you, the rest is up to you. GOOD LUCK!!! Wild2DMaxx
