Help Load Main Image Failed...

Hey, I'm trying to fix my friend's SanDisk Sansa e280. When ever he turns it on it says,
Load main image failed
Switch to Recovery mode
I have a feeling it has to do with corrupt firmware but am not sure, nor do I have any experience with a Sansa. If it is corrupt firmware, how do I reinstall the firmware on his Sansa? If not, any ideas?

I used to use the instructions here to recover my e2xx series players. Use the 1.02.18A firmware when you get to that part. The ones newer than that are very buggy.

I'm a fan of Rockbox as you can see from my sig. I got that way because I never had to fix a e2xx series player once it was Rockboxed. Once you are able to get your friends player fixed*crosses fingers* and make sure the hardware is sound I'd look into that.

Good Luck
