Get out the battery and let the device "calm down" without any source of power for 5-10 minutes. After that push the menu/start button, hold down for 30 or more seconds and holding down, insert the battery. It has to reset the power circuitry and should help.

    My e130 Sandisk was dead and unresponsive, apparently the result of sitting with a mostly discharged battery in it. This procedure worked, using a new battery. THanks!

Canon Powershot SX120is wont turn on

This kind of problem happen because not all of AAA batteries in market are match with canon standards. so changed his mind about using disposable batteries on new models. your camera need new DC/DC board which is expensive(between 50 to 90 dollars). there is video in you tube to how replacing the board. But better suggestion is getting a new camera with chargeable battery.

How do i get the ''key hold'' off of e130?

If you look on the left side of the e130, there is a slide switch. Slide that switch up, that is your hold switch. In order to get your player powered on, you have to have it out of the key hold function. Now after you get to playing the music you want to hear, then you can reactivate the key hold. However, this will disable you from turning the volume up or down, or skipping through the songs. In order to be able to do this, then simply turn off the key hold again by sliding it down. I hope this helps!

Sansa e130

ok, for everyone with e130 "keeps getting an I/O device error, only language screen, than something about 4MB memory..." problem, I just spend six hours of my life trying to solve it and fix my dad's e130 and I succeeded ;)

so, step by step, how EXACTLY I did it:

0) my system was windowsXP SP2

1) remove the battery
2) keep holding the menu button and plug in the usb, keep it for a few seconds more, untill the system will tell you it found a stmp3500 and want to install the hardware
3) allow it to reach windows update for that matter and install the drivers
4) now you have new device that is called "Player Recovery Device Class" you can check it in device manager (Right-click My Computer, click Properties, click the Hardware tab, and then click Device Manager)
5) and now is time for flushing new firmware...I managed to find two versions of firmware for e130:

1.0.101e - http://www.sandisk-karty.cz/sandisk-katalog/sansa-e100-series-mp3-players/dokumenty/
2.0.0.01e - http://www.sandisk.com/Retail/Default.aspx?CatID=1295

6) I tried both of them in many different combinations and finally one and one only miraculously worked for me and that was the one when

I HAD THE SD CARD IN THE MP3PLAYER, THE PLAYER WAS RECOGNIZED AS "Player Recovery Device Class" BY THE WINXP AND I STARTED EUROPIAN sansa-2.0.0.01e.exe !


PS: i don't think that there's a big difference between europian and american version of firmware I mention it just to be accurate about the situation. and big thanks to anonymous guy who turned me to right direction with stmp3500. hope that help to others ;]

I hate blue

goes off because the backlight is on a timer. after 20 seconds or so it turns off if no buttons are pushed. if the player will still play music but nothing shows on the screen, then the display is shot. The screen is not replaceable on these players. sorry, but it's most likely junk now. You could use it as a data storage device still. Best bet is to buy a used player off ebay or amazon.

Battery

I'm having the same problem! I've had my Sansa e130 for exactly one year today. I loaded new music on it last night and when I tried to turn it on, it said "searching internal memory for new music." I left it on and this morning it wouldn't come back on with new batteries or even when hooked to a computer! I sent an e-mail to the company for help since there is no reset button. I haven't heard anything yet. I suggest you contact SanDisk too. They may have a problem. And I can't believe someone actually suggested as a solution to put a new battery in it or hook it up! No duh! We're looking for real help here, not the obvious things to try.
