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.
- download the firmware (http://www.sandisk.com/Retail/Default.aspx?CatID=1295) - run firmware - SW - FirmwareDownloader shows "Detecting" - put oft the battery of the e140 - hold down the Power Button - Connect the e140 to the PC - FirmwareDownloader shows "Recovery mode ready" - press start-Button
I've actually had the same problem with mine. What happens with mine is the spring becomes loose or bent and needs to be (gently) pried back into it's original position.
Hope this is of some help,
Let's try this: take the battery out of the player and wait for a full 5 minutes. While the battery is out, please hold the power-on button for 10 seconds. After that, connect it to your computer (without the battery). Does it work when it's connected to the computer?
Regardless of that result, disconnect it from the computer, then put a brand new alkaline battery back in, and see if it will turn on.
