Question about SanDisk Sansa e260 MP3 Player

2 Answers

The screen is turning white when I change song

I bought my sansa e260 about 2 years ago, it worked very well until yesterday.
It goes like this, yesterday i was listening to my music and the music stopped. Then the screen suddendly turned white. I reseted it and could listening to my music again, but when I change song the player froze and I reseted it one time again. So, each time I change song the screen turn white and the player stop to play.
The warranty is finished a long time ago, can I do something else than buy a new one?

    Thanks for your solution
    I formatted it and it works like a charm
    I already had a copy of my mp3 software so I could copy it in my mp3 when it was formatted

    Now it's like nothing had happen to my precious sansa ^^

You could possibly try recovery mode?

or formatting it and starting over, see if that helps

easy way to format

1.Shutdown player
2.Hold Rec button
3.Turn player on
4.Plug your player into the PC
5.Go to My computer
6.Find a Icon named 16Mb Format
7.Open that and make a new text file
8.Name it sansa.fmt
9.unplug player and it will say Formatting.....
10.when its finished it will reset , or shut off, when its done turn it on and see if that helps

Completely Wacky 'Sansa e260'

Try reflashing the firmware for your device you can find the latest firmware and flashing utilities from the manufacturer?s website. Make sure that you back your music up first because when you do this you are setting it back to factory settings. That will be the only way

Does not show songs that were previously synced

Hi,
1. Make sure you Windows Media Player 11 (Goto Help --> About WMP --> v??) 2. If you do not have it, install it from this location: http://www.microsoft.com/mediaplayer  3. Change the Mode on Device: Go into Menu --> Settings --> USB Mode:Auto Detect/MTP/MSC  4. Select MSC and it should work. If it does not try Powercycling your device (turn it off and then turn it on). 5. Try other modes as well.

My songs show up in music folder on the drive, but not on the actual player.

Backup the songs on the player, delete them from it and load them back on. This should build the song lists back up.

Stuck in language mode

Download the Sansa Recovery Tool from the Sansa website.
Format - Erases Everything: Connect your Sansa player to the computer and open Windows Media Player. Click on the Sync tab. Pull down the drop down menu underneath the Sync tab by moving your cursor over the Sync tab and left clicking on the little black arrow underneath the Sync tab. Highlight "Sansa 1GB" (wording may vary slightly), and then select "Format." - this should erase everything.
Firmware Upgrade- Erases Everything: Get the latest firmware upgrade from Sansa - it updates the firmware and erases every song in the player all at once. Note: this method doesn't work if already have the latest firmware. Go to this website and click "Firmware Updater" to find out: http://www.sandisk.com/Retail/DriverDownloads.aspx

Sansa Hack!!! please help!

You device is too full. You need minimum 6MB for the "music database". The more music you have, the bigger the database needs to be. Try freeing up 30MB or so, that should solve it. Please add to the question, dont select NOT HELPFUL if this didnt work. Best of Luck.
