    I tried these two solutions, but the first one did not work, and the second one, it doesnt enters recovery mode, i tried many ways, but the display remains black but the wheel on.

    I read something call 'manufactures mode', but it said its a very dangerous procedure.

    What else can i do for my poor Sansa, i feel a little disapointed because i just enjoy it for a week.

    Thanks for your help.

Hi. Normally the symptoms you described would be due to using an expandable memory card (a 2GB microSD, for example)and have loaded too many songs. Another possibility is that your Sansa E260 may be encountering corruptions in its internal/external memory. One solution would be to perform a "Low Level" format on the player under MSC mode, thus, eliminating any corruption on the player. To do so, please switch the player's mode to MSC. Under this mode, your player would function as a normal media storage device (like a flash drive). Just a reminder: Formatting would delete all of the files on your Sansa E260. You may want to make back-up copies of important files on your player before you proceed to the solution below. Here's how to perform a "Low Level" format: Step 1: Plug your player to your PC (Just a reminder, your player's minimum Operating System requirement is Windows XP and above). Windows XP would identify your player as a "Removable Drive". Step 2: On your desktop, please single right-click on the "My Computer" icon and select "Manage" from the pop-up menu list. This would open the "Computer Management" window. Step 3: On the left pane on the "Computer Management" window, single left-click on "Disk Management" (this is located on the middle section of the list, under "Storage"). Step 4: Look at the topmost portion of the right pane. This would give you a list of drives, one which would correspond to your Sansa E260. On the icon pertaining to your Sansa E260, please right-click on it and select "Format" on the pop-up menu list. This would display the "Format" window. Step 5: On the "Format" window, please make sure that the File System type is FAT32, and also make sure that the "Quick Format" checkbox -- found on the bottom section of that windows -- remains unchecked. Click "Start" to begin formatting the player. Step 6: Re-transfer all your music files to the player. The most preferred method is to use Windows Media Player 10 or 11 to transfer the files to your player. Another method would be to "copy and paste" or "drag and drop" the files as long as they aren't subscription music files I hope this helps resolve the "lag time" you're encountering. I just love the Sansa E260! Syd.

    There might still be way to revive your player. Let's try to "Soft Reset" your player and upgrade its firmware.

    To "Soft Reset" your player, make sure that your player's scroll wheel light is on.
    Press and hold the "Menu" button until the scroll wheel light turns off (this might take 20-30 seconds or more), then try to turn it back on.

    Having your player stuck with the scroll wheel light being turned on might have drained the battery, so try to charge it for at least 1-2 hours.

    If this does revive your player, then setting your player to "Recovery Mode" and upgrading its firmware might help.

    Switch your Sansa E260 to its Recovery Mode:

    1. Make sure the player is powered off
    2. Enable the "Hold" switch (located on the top of the player). You would know it's enabled when you see the "orange-colored" surface
    3. Press the "Record" button. Make sure you keep it pressed while pressing on the "Menu" button.
    4. keep your fingers pressed on these 2 buttons until the E260 LCD screen displays "Welcome to Recovery Mode"
    5. Connect your E260 to your computer. (Just a reminder: The minimum Operating System requirements for a Sansa E200 player is Windows XP and above)
    6. Double-click on "My Computer" and you would see your Sansa E260 appear as a "16 MB" drive. Note: If you do not see that "16 MB" drive/partition, please repeat steps 1-6.

    Next, Apply the firmware for the E260 (your player should be connected to your PC at this time):

    Step 1:
    Use this link to download the firmware for your Sansa E260 (for better results, please save this file on your "Desktop": http://www.sandisk.com/Assets/File/Downl...

    Step 2:
    Double left-click on the downloaded file, and follow the on-screen prompts. The file will automatically re-flash your player and format it as well, thereby clearing all possible file/system corruptions that may have occurred which caused the error in the first place.

    Step 3:
    When the process is complete, unplug your E260 from your computer, and please make sure you disable the "Hold" switch

    Step 4:
    Power up your E260 and 90-99% of the time, it would boot up successfully.

    Step 5:
    Enjoy using your Sansa E260, just like I do. (I love this player)

    Try to "Soft Reset" your player, press and hold the "Menu" button until the scroll wheel light turns off.

    Then, you would need to re-charge the player before proceeding further. Charge it for at least 2-3 hours. Try to turn it on then.

    Next, try to format the player to rid of any corruption then re-transfer some songs.

    For better results, perform the firmware re-flash procedure outlined aboved
