Unhappy Sansa Stops at Rhapsody Screen with lines, dies?

I know this has probably been asked a billion times and people are sick of it, but I have tried thoroughly searching and gave up back in December.
Now I see the my Sansa (e280R) sitting around like a paperweight and want to fix it.

Here's my problem: The sansa will turn on, screen/wheel and such, and stop at the Sansa Rhapsody Image, dims the screen (but screen/wheel stay lit) and starts getting black lines, eventually fading to white, but not completely white. The text is still slightly readable. From there the screen is covered by a spreading blackness until the screen is black with the text still slightly readable. I have no clue whatsoever how to fix it, and I really need help.

I'll try anything, even if it involves using another interface...


I have tried putting it into recovery mode, and dropping a sansa.fmt file onto it. That is pretty much all I have tried.
