Sansa MP3 player charges, plays while plugged into wall, but not unplugged.
My son can listen to music when his e250 is plugged into the wall charger, and it appears to fully charge, but it doesn't work when unplugged. It's a 2GB e250 Sansa from Circuit City, Xmas gift 2006. Thanks.

You can keep the Sansa plugged in without fear of overcharging. The Sansa will play while it is connected to a USB port that is supplying only power, such as a USB charger operating off a car cigarette lighter. It will not play while connected to a computer.
If you leave your Sansa plugged into your charging source (wall charger, computer, car etc.), your player might still remain fully charged and just on. If you can, you may want to just leave it plugged into your charging source until you want to use it, so it stays fully charged.When its done, it will say fully charge...it should take a couple hours to charge the device....
Also, does your player have an auto power off or idle sleep setting? You can use this setting to set the amount of time you want your Sansa to automatically turn off after you don't use or listen to music on it.
Format your player and re-transfer your songs. The best way to format the player is by changing the player to MSC, then connect it to your computer and open My Computer and right-click and format the player remove the quick format then click start. :D
