Unhappy HELP! Sansa e260R frozen

When I try to turn my Sansa on, it freezes with the blue light but the screen remains black. I've already tried draining the battery and connecting it to the computer; same thing. It won't go into recovery mode (though maybe that's because I have Linux??), and I don't know what else to try. Please help! Thanks.

You will need to use the e200tool in Linux because it sounds like it is stuck in manufacturer mode.

By the way, welcome to ABi>>.

Thanks. How do you use the program? (I'm fairly new to Linux.)

Before you dive into un-explored territory, try a soft re-set first. Many people forget that this should be the 1st thing you try when any thing goes awry (rhyme un-intentional ).

When your player freezes up like this, press & hold the power/menu button for approx. 15 - 20 seconds until the unit powers off. Then press the power button once again to start it up normally. With any luck, you'll be "good to go"!
