My Sansa E260's screen is white and it won't turn off

After leaving it on all night and running the battery down I plugged it back in, it charged and everything is working fine. The morale of this story is, don't unplug it from the computer while it is in use.

you have to hold down the power button for 13 whole seconds. I have had the same thing happen to mine and I dont know if there is a permanent way of fixing it but that should turn it off so you can turn it on again.

Make sure that the USB mde on the player is set to MTP. Update player to the latest firmware.

The screen is on, pure white, and no controls work...

Mine goes white when I plug it into my computer to charge and then the laptop is closed or the computer hibernates. I simply slide the power switch up to the ON position all the way and hold it there for at least fifteen seconds before releasing it. It then turns off. I allow 5 seconds and it turns on as ususal, no problem. This might not be your problem, but worth a try...

MTP Mode Doesnt Work

Try uninstalling MTP Mode in the Windows Device Manager, and replugging the player - set the menu setting in the Sansa itself to "auto" for USB Mode before replugging. Let me know how it works.

Problem with sansa e260

that happens to me too. i think the problem is that your computer can't like, sense that it's plugged in, so your battery's dying out, and the computer wont charge it

White screen only

Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it 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.
