Unhappy Can't connect via USB to Linux or Windows

If anyone has experience with this problem give me a yell.

I am unable to connect thru my USB ports. The computers that I have don't see my e280. I am also getting no video screen on the 280 just the blue ring.
Smart on my part : I was in the 280's partition to clear out some song and I wiped something I should not have. Before all of this thing were good.

Any Ideas???

Your Sansa is in manufacture mode. You need to try resetting the daughter card, first. If that does not work, you will need to try the e200tool in Linux. There are FAQ's about the e200tool.

You need open it up. After opening it, there is two different ways. You can push the pad that is right above the battery area. If that does not work, you will need to open it more and take the daughter card off then put it back on the main board.

I was able to get the back off. I depressed that small black pad on the card above the battery. Removing the daughter card is another story? I was able to take the front cover of the player off. I am looking at the card w/screen, front , back covers, and 2 sets of 4 phils. head screws. Where do I go next? other than e200tool.

You see the plastic near the dock port: http://i90.photobucket.com/albums/k2...9/IMG_0770.jpg

Here is how you get the main board out: http://i90.photobucket.com/albums/k2...9/IMG_0772.jpg

Thanks for the pics. I was able to get the main board out but still no response when I push the black button (above the battery). I will look more to e200tool.

Did you try remove the daughter card and put it back on the main board? If so, you will need to use the e200tool, then.

Looks like you did not hold the REC button long enough. Once you get that, you need to unplug it and hold the Power button till it turns off. Once it gets turned off, you need boot it back into the manufacture mode, and try it again.

Ok I will turn it off, unplug it, and start it off in manufacture mode. Right now everything is on and plugged in, waiting for me to get back from work.

I tried it again but the same thing happened. I held in the REC button and let it go when the program dropped out to the command line. The same Control message (-71, Protocol error).

I was looking at the term window. It says Recovery mode

Bus 001 Device 006: ID 0781:0720 SanDisk Corp. Sansa C200 series in recovery mode

I have been using the manufacturing mode steps. Is the following correct?

  • Get your Terminal window up front. Turn on your Sansa Player and boot into manufacturing mode using the following:
  1. Switch and enable the Hold Button. You should see an orange mark.
  2. Hold down the Select Button (the center round button) and turn the player on.
  3. Wait for at least 5 seconds, and then connect the cable.
  • Open the Terminal and type in the following and hit Enter:

I know there is people that say it takes many tries to get it. I tried the e200tool on one of my Sansa e200 series. It took me like fives times to get it going.
