Blue Ring of Death Sansa E250 v1

Hi, I have gone through every step (other than the Linux fix) on trying to get my Sansa E250 to boot back up.  I have not been able to get it to come up at all, other than the blue ring lighting up.  When I try to get it to go into recover mode (holding record button), nothing happens.  I have tried removing the battery, waiting and reinserting, nothing happens.  I have looked to see if anything needs to be reseated, nothing that I can see.  Computer (both xp and vista) don't recognize the device, and the only way you would know that it at least powers on is the blue ring lights up, but I can't seem to get it to go into recovery mode.  FYI, this was a refurb purchase from buy.com and have had it for only two days, first day loaded some songs, second day, blue ring of death.

 

Any thoughts?

 

Thanks for any help provided.

Two days?  Don't waste any time--get a replacement unit. This should not be your problem.

Sometimes they're great, and sometimes they're not.

Yeah, but at least when you buy a refurb you still have a few left to play around with. Smiley Wink
