Question about SanDisk Sansa e260 MP3 Player

1 Answer

My menu screen won't show...

Everything was working fine at first but now whenever I turn it on, it shows the "Sandisk" trademark, goes white and goes back to the trademark. It does this until the battery runs out. I don't know what to do. Do I have to get a new one or is there a way that I can restart it?

    I even installed the firmware thing. It still does the same thing. What should I do now?

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.

Nothing happens when it turns on


What I did for mine was just reset it. Hold down the big round center button and the start button at the same time for at least 20 seconds. It will turn off, then try turning it back on and see what it does. Mine is working fine again (the "key locked" message just meant that I had the hold button on! woops.)

Sandisk Sansa e260 gone retarded 4.0GB


Download the Sansa Recovery Tool from the Sansa website.
Format - Erases Everything: Connect your Sansa player to the computer and open Windows Media Player. Click on the Sync tab. Pull down the drop down menu underneath the Sync tab by moving your cursor over the Sync tab and left clicking on the little black arrow underneath the Sync tab. Highlight "Sansa 1GB" (wording may vary slightly), and then select "Format." - this should erase everything.
Firmware Upgrade- Erases Everything: Get the latest firmware upgrade from Sansa - it updates the firmware and erases every song in the player all at once. Note: this method doesn't work if already have the latest firmware. Go to this website and click "Firmware Updater" to find out: http://www.sandisk.com/Retail/DriverDownloads.aspx

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.
