Question about SanDisk Sansa e140 MP3 Player

Open Question

Screen backlight works but nothing shows on screen! HELP!

Hello, Yesterday, I went to turn my e140 on and it stayed on for a little while and then shut off, so I replaced the battery and pressed the Power button, it turns on, the back light on the LCD works, but no text or anything shows up on the screen, but it still plays MP3's, its so frustrating I cant see what Im playing. Also I updated the firmware and it does the same thing, but this time it wont play music. I want to exhaust all my options before I give up on my Sandisk e140? Is there anything else I can do?

SOURCE: My Sansa e250R, 2 gigs, froze. Help!

It seems like your E250R is experiencing a temporary system error due to a corrupted song, and needs to be reset. Try to "Soft Reset" your player, press and hold the "Menu" button until the LCD light and scroll wheel light turn off. Since the player was probably left on for more than 7 hours (as you indicated), you would need to re-charge the player before proceeding further. Charge it for at least 2-3 hours. Next, try to format the player to rid of any corruption then re-transfer the songs. If you have subscription songs, then I would suggest to delete the song you last played which caused the error. I hope this helps. There is another solution for the player, but for now this might actually resolve the issue. Let me know the results. :)

To reset the player hold in the power button for at least 20 seconds, when you release the button the player should restart on it's own. If it doesn't then try again holding the power button for a little longer. If for some reason the player becomes unstable and resetting doesn?t resolve the issue, then try the Sansa Connect Recovery Tool which will clean up your player and restore it to factory settings. You can download this tool & get instructions on it's use on the following link: http://www.sandisk.com/Retail/Default.aspx?CatID=1532 Please update the question & let us know if the information given was useful to you - Good Luck!

You have a corrupt file - bad file...

Corrupt files for sansa -

Plug your player in, in MSC mode.

Right-click on it.

Click "properties"

Click "tools"

Check both the boxes on the error checking window that pops up, and click start.

After it finishes, check your player to make sure your player is normal.

Sounds like your battery is shot. If it goes to far past dead, it will not power up even plugged in. Go to a battery store/Best Buy etc. and see if they have one you can use to try. Certain battery types can not go under 25% of a charge or they will not charge again correctly and vice versa. Just a short in the dark but hope that fixes your problem

MP3 is dead. Is there some trick to reboot?


Press and hold the power button (menu) in your e140 for about 30+ seconds. Now try powering on your Sansa.
If it doesn't work, press and hold select (center button) alongside pressing and holding power button. Probably this should work for you.

When I shut my 1997 dodge neon off the day lights stay on


Did the lights always stay on for a little while? Sometimes they will remain on for about 30 seconds then turn off. You should have a battery saver or day lights relay in your fuse box. Try putting a relay you know works into that slot and see if the lights turn off when you shut off the car. If so, you have a sticking relay.

Sounds like a Battery - AC Adapter problem. Do you have an Icon showing your battery level?

Do you have Windows XP? I'm guessing you do because of the memory upgrade.

If you have XP, go to Control Panel - Power Options and check you battery. Choose to show in task bar.

If you have a AC Adapter, the BIOS on your laptop will NOT charge the battery, but it will show that you are on AC (unless it's completely dead)

I'm guessing that if you only had 1g of memory, you have a pretty old laptop, and you probably should purchase a new AC Adapter, and a new Battery.
