Sansa e260 key locked(?)

PLEEASE HELP! i cant find anything about locking a sansa 260, but that seems to have happened to me somehow listening to my player through some mini speakers and it suddenly froze up. it wouldnt turn off for ages but my friend managed to turn it off somehow, possibly using the record and off button together. now when i turn it on it says key locked, system shutdown. if i turn it on while pressing the record button it says welcome to recovery mode, so i connect my USB but it doesn't seem to do anything, and all i can find in the removable disk is a wordpad file with some kind of code written in. then when i disconnect it seems to refresh files etc, but then it says key locked, system shutdown again!!! im sure this is probably something obvious i just dont know about, but i really need to fix/unlock it, theres loads of important recordings on my player which arent backed up and i CANNOT lose them!!!! please someone help me!

Seems kinda obvious, but did you turn off the hold switch on the top?

My Sansa Fuze MP-3 player has "locked up" even though I don't have the device in the locked position. Can you help me to unlock my device?


Hi!

Seems that there is a problem with the Hold Button of the mp3 player. Please check the manual of the similar device. Hope it will help!

Sansa Fuze wont work with home stereo


The Sansa doesn't play music through the USB port. You can connect the Sansa to your stereo via the Sansa's headphone jack.

Will Windows read it as a flash drive?
If so, find a file recovery program like undelete or something, use it to restore your files, then turn on the sansa, then select format( if it is a view) and it will delete all your songs

Resetting the sensa


The most basic way to reset this device is to hold the power button down for 15 - 20 seconds - if you have a charge on the battery in the player, this should do it.

Stuck Screen


It seems as thought the player itself has actually frozen. I have the same player and it has never done this to me. If you havent allready try leaving it alone in a quiet place for a day or two until it runs out of battery. Then plug it in to your PC to charge and it should be okay. As this has happend to me with other players. If it isnt however, try to resolve the issue by somehow updating the firmware. Try googling "SanDisk Sansa e260 Firmware Upgrade" and see what you can find. If there is something which looks hopeful try it, but if it doesnt work, the perhaps the only option is to return or exchange the player at its place of purchase. P.S Check the USB modes.

My mp3 player froze model:M240


Is the lock switch locked? If it is slid to the right it is locked and you can't do anything.
