    I also had this problem on the same song (Justin Timberlake - Lovestoned) which would freeze the player, lock up the screen, or cease playing out of the left headphone piece.

    The posted solution of holding the power button worked to unfreeze the player. Thanks.

    Hello Sansa Users

    Problem Description:

    I tried turning on my sansa e250 after adding some new music and it went into a long "refreshing database" phase until at about a minute and about 80% refreshed, the screen went blank, though it was still on. I held the power button and turned it off...
    The second time, the same thing happened, just that the screen now had multiple bright green vertical lines along the screen and the blank black background after waiting a second minute.
    After multiple attempts and the same results (blank screen or unhelpful bright green lines), I do think I need your guys' help.

    What I have tried and did NOT work:

    • Connecting it to the PC again

    • Powering it on multiple times

    • After going blank, leaving it on for a half hour

That happened to me. Take the battery out and then put it back in. Mine worked fine after that.

I concur, holding down works ^^

Posted on Mar 29, 2008



Same....mine froze just a minute ago so I googled this site. Holding down the power button > 10s worked!

Posted on Mar 12, 2008


Holding the power down is the perfect solution thanks!

Posted on Feb 19, 2008


Haha mine just froze up like 5 mins ago and so i came to try and figure out how i could fix it. yeah holding the power button down for a while really does work. just make sure it isnt on hold.

Posted on Dec 31, 2007


Holding the menu button for 20 seconds worked for me thanks ya!

Posted on Dec 05, 2007


Ok the only thing you have to do is to press the power/menu button for 20 seconds and after that your sansa will turn off, then turn it on and enjoy!

Sansa e250 2GB no work duplicate the song

You can have a try Leawo Tunes Cleaner. Just follow below steps. If you still have issues or have a massive music library in iTunes or other music folders that requires a more powerful and less time-consuming option, the third-party software like Leawo Tunes Cleaner can help you. It can not only automatically clean up duplicate songs in iTunes, but also automatically delete duplicate songs in other music folders. If you want to automatically remove duplicates in iTunes, the automatic duplicate remover might have the answer for you.
1. After kicking off Leawo Tunes Cleaner, click the "Clean-up Duplicate" entry. The program provides 2 duplicate scanning modes: Quick Scan mode and Deep Scan mode. Select one of them to scan duplicate songs.
2. You could delete duplicates in iTunes music library by directly clicking "Scan iTunes" button or click "Add" button to load music files for duplicates removing.
3. After loading source music files, click the "Scan" button on the upper-right corner to start scanning duplicates. The program would display all duplicates clearly and suggest what to remove. You could decide which duplicates to delete by checking them and then click the "Remove" button to remove duplicate songs.

Sync music to continue listening...

first you must format the player using msc mode then after that retransfer the songs to the player. If you are receiving this message it means that the songs on the player have expired. This is normal if you download the songs off rhapsody, napster or any online music stores and if you have ripped songs iwht copy protect music on it if you ripped them using windows media player 10.

Duplicating songs

Does this happen every time you plug it into the computer? If so you might have your player set to automaticly sinc. this meens that every time you plug it in all the music on your computer will go automaticly on your player. In the settings you can turn it off. Hope this helps!

Deleting files from Sansa e250

The only way I know to delete music files or voice or FM recordings, is straight from the User's manual on the CD: 1. Set the e250 to MSC mode. 2. Plug it in to your computer with the USB connector. 3. Open the Sansa e250 drive in My Computer and browse to the MUSIC folder (or RECORD folder)and delete the files there. (That's where you also add music files, by dragging from other explorer windows.) To delete (or add) photo and video files, you have to use the Media Converter, which you install from the disk that came with the e250.
