s connected to the PC. i know my mp3 player still works, so please can anyone help me fix it? =[

Maybe you knocked the battery loose.

Open the back–there are four little screws, don’t lose them–and take out the battery. It looks like a cell-phone battery. Then put it back in snugly. Try it before you put the back on again.

Even if it doesn’t work, make sure the battery is snugly in there and put it back together, then recharge it and try again. 

c1u31355, I just wanted to say thanks!  I came across this thread when doing a google search for “sansa dropped.”  I dropped my e260 during a woodworking project, and couldn’t get it to turn back on.  I removed the screws.  When I pressed hard on the battery, it would turn on, but as soon as I let go, it turned back off.  I folded up a small piece of paper and placed it between the battery and the back piece, and screwed the backpiece back on.  Worked like a charm.
