I have Sansa m250 (2GB) bought in 2004. It was working properly until now. There is no physical damage or formating or software reinstallation done.
Now, if it is connected to battery and powered on, it shows the message “SanDisk Initialization” and does not complete boot up. It remains in the same screen until the battery is physical removed.
Even if it is connected to computer through USB, it shows the same screen and is not detected by the computer.
I don’t know whether it is a hardware or software issue. Please provide the solution.
