Well i got a sansa e260r for christmas and it was all good until i think i might have disconnected it improperly from my pc and when i did only the thumbwheel was lit up and it did nothing, usually it says "refreshing database" and continues to stay on. now i can't turn it on and whenever i push the power button or plug it in nothing happens but the thumbwheel lights up. i've tried resetting it and ive tried taking the battery out but nothing happens. i think i'll call up tech support, but i hope somebody can please help because i've put my whole music library on here and deleted it all off my pc.
Same things here. If you can't power down, Try holding in the center button or the rec. button that has worked for me. Now if I could only get my e260 to power up I will be back in business. -Mac
I've had nothing but problems with my e260 since I bought it. It's been freezing, showing corrupted album art, etc. I installed the firmware updater yesterday and today after repeately trying to get it to boot into MTC mode I got the "glowing thumbwheel, no screen" problem. I opened the back and popped the battery out for a second and put it back, and the unit started up for me. Based on past performance, I can't see it running for long, though.
