Question about SanDisk Sansa e260 MP3 Player

3 Answers

Battery Problem??? My new Sansa E260 is giving me a message that says "Battery is too low system shutdown". However, I was able to download music from Rhapsody, and while I was listening to it, it froze and this screen came up. When I plug it in to my laptop it shows charging to a full charge, however when I try to turn it on, I continue to get this same error. I hold the power button down to shut it off and it blanks out and the same message comes up and the blue light stays on. Please help!!!!

Ok it takes a while but heres the solution. Slide the hold button to ON and hold down the REC button.While still holding the REC button,connect the USB port and wait for your PC to find it. Once it has found it type this link in to download Firm Ware. It may take a while but it is worth the wait.Once it is downloaded to your player EJECT!!! the player before disconnecting the USB port.Now just wait for it to format yor player and it should be working good as new again. =)

Have you tried recharging the battery? If it is not showing when you connect it to your computer, try holding down the Menu/On-Off button for 15 - 30 seconds and see if it goes on. 
If you need a new battery this is a good place to get one:

"Battery Is Too Low System Shutdown"


The battery has come loose from the contacts on the inside.

Remove the back (4 screws), remove the battery and put it back in securely.

Then charge it for a couple hours.





Best of Luck.

Error message " battery is too low system shutdown"


Try removing the battery from the back and re-seating it.

They become loose if they are dropped, or handled roughly.





Best of Luck.

Sansa e260 won't let me download certain music


If you used Windows Media Player to "rip" (copy) the music to your computer. The default settings are to "copy protect my music" if you didnt change this setting, the Sansa will want a "license" to go with it. Resolution, change the setting in Windows Media Player, Tools>Options>Rip Music (uncheck copy protect my music). You can also change the default rip setting to Mp3, as opposed to Windows Media Audio. Then you would have to re-rip the tracks to your PC, as unprotected. Make sure you delete the old tracks from the device, otherwise, it will always give you that error message. Best of Luck.
