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?

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"

Click "Error Checking"

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.

If that don't work then format = http://www.sandisk.com/Retail/Default.as...

My acer is not coming on ,there is power going into my lap top but the screen is completly blank?


Bring your laptop under sunlight. If you look very closely and can see your screen then your backlight went out. Otherwise there might be a loose/broken connection to your lcd.

HP Pavilion g series g7 black screen but occasion flicker shows it is up and running.


Hook a spare monitor to the video output usually on the back, if picture is okay! the problem lies in the inverter board, "just below the screen" or the backlight behind the LCD display, or the video cable from the screen to the motherboard has come loose from the plugin. But if both show the same symptom it means the Video Graphics Card is defective, normally built into the motherboard.

Hello !

Connect an external monitor and if it works, your problem is the display's backlight or inverter board.

If you were experiencing discoloration in the screen (pinkish lower light hues) before it failed, that would indicate a CCFL backlight issue. If the screen suddenly went dim on you rather than a slow degradation the inverter would be indicated.

In either case, a technician in your area should be able to help. Evaluate to see if the repair is cost-effective.

Hope this helps.

3 year old 42in LG LCD TV scrren went blank


You will either have a fault with the inverter board which drives the backlights or a faulty backlight in the screen. If the problem is a backlight then a replacement screen is the only cure. One or the other is breaking down after it has been opn for a certain period of time, have an engineer call out & check with a tester if it is a screen problem.

Samsung monitor picture clicks off after 2-5 seconds...


Yes, It sounds like the backlight inverter circuit is shutting down. No inverter power, no backlight. On some monitors the inverter circuit will shot circuit the power power supply which makes the power light flash on some it just kills the backlight. You can usually check with a flashlight. Hold the flashlight pointed at the screen and see if you can see any of the icons or background picture. If you can then it is the backlight circuit or backlight tubes, usually the circuit.

Monitor stuck on black, menu buttons not responding


It's sort of a solution, but I work in a computer shop and got this screen in yesterday. I looked at it closely and it's actually the backlight that died. I pulled it apart and found that three of the 820uF/20V capacitors had swollen up. If you replace them then you should be fine, but I went for a different approach and took the inverter board from a laptop and put the in the screen and used an external power supply. It's a bit dark but it works fine now.

LCD backlight not working


Hi.....It would appear your backlight has "blown" (it is just a thin,long bulb in the bottom of your screen)....It will need replacing ....Although you could purchase one yourself to fit it would be best to leave this job to a service engineer

Hope this helps
