Question about SanDisk Sansa E280 MP3 Player

1 Answer

I turn my sansa 280 on, it displays "key locked, system shutdown

When I turn it on, it does the regular 'sansa' shoot across the black screen. However, instead of it turning into my regular menu, the screen stays black, and reads" key LOCKED/system shutdown." What is happening, and how can I fix it??
