Default unbricking a c240. Tried quite a bit already

OK. This is my first post on the anythingbutipod forum.
Before posting I had trawled through these forums and others to find and follow various solutions, but still no hope.
My sisters sansa c240 v1 stopped working. Only the menu blue light comes on, No LCD.
It had rockbox installed and was working fine for about 6 months until now.

I went through the basic rock box unbricking steps in the wiki (using Unbuntu)
I tried the recovery mode step = no 16mb drive visible

Tried the erase procedure with e200tool and 240erase.bin and tried previous steps = no luck.
Note= its says in the wiki that it could take more than 45mins! mine took about 10-20 secs!
I tried it many times, same result.

Assuming Im in manufacturing mode
I then tried the recover pribootloader.rom via e200tool = it executes as described but does not go to recovery mode as written.
note= in the wiki it states "you need to hold down the record button on your player, otherwise you may miss going into recovery mode"
I only press+hold the rec button just before I hit enter to execute the code. right or wrong?

I now believe I am in pre bootmode as in corrupt i2c. (lsusb command lists c240 as PortalPlayer)
The problem now = not many files for c200 series, specifically my c240. I cannot find a
a i2c bin file to repair in preboot mode. Can anyone upload a sansa c240 i2c file bin image please.
(I believe u can use the e200tool to do so, correct me If Im wrong).

So can someone now please help? I am a noob in linux, but have followed exactly and searched much before I resulted to posting. Its a cheap mp3 player to buy again but would rather save what we have rather than throwing away.
Any mistakes in technical stuff please forgive.

Thank You
