I've tried everything so far (except the Ubuntu trick, cause I'm not into Linux) but no success in restoring my old Sansa e280. Here is the situation :

1. When trying to power it up, only the srcoll wheel becomes blue. Nothing at all on screen, total black out;

2. When connecting the USB cable on the device and on my computer (Vista 64 bit), the computer recognises a "Tango Media Digital Platform" and ask to install the driver, wich of course I don't have.

 

What can I do about it? I really don't what to do. I have tried for a year now and I am about to throw that piece of junk...sorry about that! Please help me...


Try this.

You don't need anything but a screwdriver to try neutron_bob's suggestion:

 

"If the Sansa will not boot, it's entirely possible that a mechanical connection to the flash memory daughterboard can cause serious headaches.  To check this, remove the rear cover, and inspect the big black rectangle above the battery module.  You'll see a grey foam block there, which keeps the daughterboard pressed inward.  Go ahead and give it a gentle press.  If the board clicks back down into its socket, you may have just solved your problem."

Already tried this too. I've pressed the grey thing, it seems to get back in place, but then...nothing.

Neutron Bob, you are the BOMB.  You do rock, sir.  I was at a loss... this kid in Cambodia thought he had lost his Sansa e260 forever, and so did I... I thought, one last try... your instructions were perfect, to the hilt.  Koodoes to you and you just made Ngoy's day (well, he will be overjoyed tomorrow!!  It is now after midnight)...Ngoy had saved for MONTHS for this thing... If I were closer I'd buy you a coffee.  Thanks for sharing your knowledge in such a clear, concise way, and putting the link to the compressed files was key!  Yours indebtedly,  PV Pilgrim

Explain your situation better. The way your post is written, I (and most likely others) can't understand your problem.

Perhaps the "recovery tool" you are referring to is the application for the Sansa Connect model.  This is different from the Recovery Mode of the e200 series.

 

If you give us a little more information on your situation, perhaps we can help!
