Default sansa doesn't boot, recovery mode also doesn't works

Hi,
i've got a big problem with my sansa e250. Today i wanted to update rockbox and the orginal firmware. When I updated rockbox the player works fine, but when I updated the orginal firmware I made a misstake and sansa doesn't starts right. So I start the recovery mode and loaded the .mi4-file on it. But when I disconnect sansa from the computer (by the hardware proofly remove-tool in the taskbar) and restart it, the screen is black and only the scroolwheel shines. So I wanted to start the recovery mode again, but it don't works. Also I can't connect sansa with my computer. It doesn't works anything. What can I do now?

Sorry for my bad English, but I come from Germany and can't speak Englisch very well.

Thanks for helping,
Maddin1994

Open up the Sansa up and reseat the daughter card or push the black pad under the battery cover. If those does not work, then you might try the e200tool in Linux.

Where can I find the daughter board and what must I do with it to reset it?

I can't run linux/ubuntu on my computer, when I want to install it BuzyBox starts.

You will need to open the battery area at least. There is a black pad near the lock that you could press. If that does not work you will need to open it farther, and it will void the warranty if you have one.

Do you have a friend or another computer that you could run Ubuntu or a Linux distro on?

I pushed the black pad, but it's as do before. My warranty is out of date, so I could open it farther. But what's to do then?

EDIT: What's to do when I pushed the black pad? Try to start Sansa normal or recovery mode? both doesn't works

That pad was connected to the daughter card that has the firmware on. Since that did not work. Here is what the insides look like: http://daniel.haxx.se/sansa/e200/pics/, and here is a how to: http://www.anythingbutipod.com/forum...ad.php?t=13524. (I wonder why he moved or deleted the photos.)

Remove and place the daughter card back on the main board. The daughter card is by the lock, headphone jack, battery terminal, and microSD slot.

Okay! If you can't do it today: I fly tomorrow in holiday (Yes, in Germany we have now holiday) and come back in a week. So I will check your post and test it then.

Thanks!

HERE is a page which shows the inside of you e200 series sansa.
HERE is an image that shows you the daughterboard. The daughterboard is the item that has the chip which reads SAMSUNG 604. If it came loose then the sansa has no way to transmit data to it. Just reseat it if it has come loose.

As can be seen in photo the black pad isn't always black... sometimes it is grey.

From what I am reading, BusyBox is a minimal shell. It is some hardware issue. Sounds like you have a new enough computer or hardware that Ubuntu does not like.

Yes, you're right, BusyBox is a minimal shell. But in summer 2007 this Ubuntu CD had worked on the same computer as yet. I don't understand this oO

Wow, that is weird. How about the new version of Ubuntu? Ubuntu is now up to 8.04.

Doesn't works, to

I search Google and found this out: Ubuntu had some problems with ATI graphic cards and I have one. Then I should install a driver in BuzyBox, but this didn't work.

I think I must buy a new sansa, fortunately a e270 V1 costs with shipping to Germany only 57, that's about 80$.
