Your player might be locked. if it is then go to the side of the player and find a button called hold and flick it the other way.

I suppose it's the problem that your Sansa e250 MP3 Player won't turn on.
You could turn to Sansa official support.

Charged my Sansa e250, now it has froze up

If it happened to freeze up and you just want to turn it off you can just hold the power button for a few seconds and it will eventually turn off.

My SanDisk Sansa e250 mp3 player froze up while listening. Won't do anything including turn off.

well to turn it off just hold down the power button for anywhere from8 to 15 seconds or whenever it turns off. then turn it to hold, and press the record button as you turn it on again to bring it to recovery mode. you will need to instal a firmware. make sure it's for the sansa e 200 series. see if that works. It works for a lot of people...but sadly not me. If only someone could help me.
