White Screen (my) fix

Had an issue with the dreaded white screen today.  Was unable to resolve it.  I went through all the recommended fixes and none worked for me.

Here’s what did work (a slight riff on the standard fixes).

I was already on the latest firmware:

I downloaded the previous firmware release ( in my case) and booted with that.

wget http://mp3support.sandisk.com/firmware/fuze/fuze02.03.31.zip

I unzipped that firmware onto the root of my sansa fuze.  This downgraded it, but still had white screen.

I then plugged it back in to my computer and the Sansa Updater asked if I wanted to upgrade (which I did).

Back to and no more white screen.

Hope this helps others in the same situation.
