Question about SanDisk Sansa e200 MP3 Player

Sansa e260 problem

I recently had my mp3 player freeze up upon cable disconnection from the computer. The screen was stuck on disconnect for a long period of time. It eventually turned off about an hour later. Now it will not turn on. The only thing that happens when you hold any of the buttons down is the blue ring light in the center comes on. That's it. The battery should have plenty of juice since it was plugged in for 4 hours previously. Any ideas? Thanks in advance.

It might just need to be reformatted. If you don't care about deleting and redownloading everything with songs and videos and pictures, too, then reformat it. Just plug the mp3 player into your computer and right click on the icon in the MY COMPUTER window, and click on FORMAT. It should come to a new window and click on start format. If this doesn't work, then call me to help you any further. Ask for Maxwell at 1-(239)-945-0583.

    Try the recovery mode. all you have to do is:

  • Anonymous Jan 30, 2007

    put the HOLD icon on, and press and hold the RECORD button on the side. After about 2 to 5 seconds, it should come to a screen that says its in recovery mode, and make sure that you have the USB setting set to MSC, not MTP. if this is all in place, you should be able to plug it into your computer and wait for it to tell you when to unplug it and it should fix the problem. Good luck!

Try taking the back cover off, remove the battery for a few seconds, then reinsert the battery to reset the locked up mp3

This just happened to me too, only it was not frozen on disconnect mode. The screen did not work, but the blue ring lit up. I did like Wild said- put hold on and held the record button in. Nothing came up so I tried it a couple more times. I thought I would try plugging it into my computer again(only the blue ring lit up when I did this before)and it turned on and the screen worked and everything. Not sure why it did that, but thanks for the help and hope that works for yours!

Try resetting it. Hold down the middle and menu buttons at the same time and it should reset itself. Then it should go to the main menu. Good Luck!

My computer doesnt see my player


Try uninstalling the walkman software from your computer (Window's has it conveniently placed in your control panel for removing programs) and reinstalling the walkman software. You could also try finding the driver from another forum (or this one) and download/install the new driver and see if that helps

My phillips GoGear SA6185/02 just freezes when i plug usb in


disconnect it. Turn it off. Then while holding the menu button plus it back in. This will make the screen go white about the splash screens. Your computer will see the hard drive and the device will not sync. Remove all the media and the data files. Plug back in and I was good to go.

I turn on my Go Gear and it freezes


Triple Reset for Philips’ GoGear:

Disconnect the Go Gear from computer. Press the reset pinhole until the player turns off. Hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard. If this pop-up does not appear, reset the player again WHILE connected to the computer. Open the Philips Device Manager, and go to Repair Tab. Reset the player one more time while connected to computer. Follow the repair instructions.

After repair is complete, upgrade the firmware for this player. Will erase all the songs, but you should be good to go again.

Sandisk m240 freezes halfway through playlist....


When you disconnect be sure to use windows' disconnect device safely  thing on the bottom right part of the screen by the clock. Even though the player says it's not writing it probably still is even after a long period of time so if you just unplug it it will mess up whatever mp3 it was transferring at the time.
