Question about SanDisk Sansa E280 MP3 Player

1 Answer

Sansa problems!!! I love my e280 i use it to listen to music at the gym and in my car, but recently it started to basically stop working but it wont turn off. The screen eventually fades out to black but it still wont shut off unless i take out the battery. Then when i turn it on it seems like its working but while its still in displaying "sandisk" it will get a whole bunch of white and red lines then fade to black again. Not sure what to do. I would greatly appreciate any help. Thx - Adam

I recommend that you open it up and see if any connections are loose

Iphone bluetooth problems


Unfortunately, the iPhone doesn't (yet) have such capability built-in. But engaging the iPod function to listen to music/video audio while a call is taking place will allow you to hear said audio. Obviously this is not an ideal solution. If your phone is jailbroken, there is a tweak to enable music to be played through the bluetooth headphones but it is low quality.

I love my e280! My question is when I am sitting in my office how, or can I, play the music through my computer speakers. I can not sit here with headphones on my head the boss would have a fit!


Plug the player into your computer with the included usb cable, then go to my computer and your player should be listed. Click on it and the music should be in the subfolder labled "music." It should play just fine on Windos Media Player.

Added music, but can't listen


I experienced a similar problem caused by corrupt files saved on the internal memory of my e280.
(I could not delete/remove the files) I had to format the internal drive of the e280
and re-copy the files back on to the unit. Works great now. When formatting the device
use the command from windows. (ie right click on the internal memory icon and select format)

Note: Formatting will remove/delete all the files (eg music,photos..) from the e280 so make sure that
you have backups.

Cheers

White Screen


if you disconnect your mp3 player, does the screen still appear white and can you turn it on or off?
i had the same problem, basically it freezes because it is busy downloading music or placing music where it is suppost to be. but if you cannot turn it off after you have unplugged it, you should take off the back cover and take out the battery. place the battery back in, and replace the cover and it should be able to turn back on without a white screen.

Sansa E280 isn't recognized by Vista


I have a e250 and it works great with my laptop which is running window vista. One thing i do remember missing with is the usb setting on the mp3 player. Maybe you can try switching between the usb opinions to see if that will fix your problem. the usb setting screen is under "setting", "usb mode".

My e280 sansa mp3 player is not working.....help please....


There is a problem with the device firmware itself..you can try to reset the player by holding the power button down for 15-20 seconds or until it resets....the latest firmware for the e280 resolved much of the freezing issues....also there are two modes for you to use the e280 the msc and mtp.....try deleting in mtp mode....if that doenst solve it...just go to the sandisk site to get a firmware upgrade done...and that would solve the proplems..

Sansa 280 with 8 gigs


The message says it needs 6MB of space for the MUSIC DB ( the database, the artist names, etc).

You need to delete some of the recordings off of your device to free up some space.

You can manually delete the files while connected to your computer from My Computer>Device Name (e280)>MUSIC Folder.




Best of Luck.

Formated the SanDisk Sansa E280


You dragged & dropped files in recovery mode? Recovery mode is only for re-installing the firmware or formatting the device if it is unresponsive. If you are wanting to drag and drop files onto the device, the music needs to be put into the Music folder on the device. If you do not see the Music folder, you will need to enable hidden files and folders on your PC. Best of Luck. p.s. - you can add to this question this doesnt work.

Did you format it while connected to a PC? If so check that you didn't format as NTFS, the Pioneer HU can only read FAT32 I think.
