    The LCD screen is just blank black. The spin wheel turns blue, but the screen that should show the songs or the menu does not show up. It stays blank. You are not able to hear anything.

Run the recovery tool from the SanDisk website. Make sure you select "format" when prompted. http://www.sandisk.com/Assets/File/Downloads/firmware/e200fw01.00.12.exe You need to put the device into "recovery mode" before you run the tool. - Turn the device off (hold power for 20 seconds) - Slide the hold switch into "hold" position. - Press and hold the "record" button while connecting it to your computer. Keep holding the "record" button until you see the "new hardware found" on your computer. Then run the recovery tool. Select format when prompted. Best of Luck.

Blank White Screen on my Sansa E260 4g mp3

Try doing a soft rest on your player. Hold the power button the player for 15-20 seconds. This should power the player off, after which you should be able to power it back on.

Black screen

Sometimes the player crashes with a blank black screen. It looks like it's turned off, but it's actually hung. Try holding down the power button for about 30 seconds, or until the player reboots itself.
