My sansa e250 gets a screen saying "Load main image failed Switch to recovery mode". I found out how to do recovery mode by following instructions. I pretty much follow all directions; to get out of recovery mode disconnect the USB cord thingy and the system will be back to normal. Unfortunately, it never goes back to normal it goes back to the "Load main image failed Switch to recovery mode" screen. Can anyone help? Please! I'm only 15 years old.

The error message typically means that your firmware is corrupt and you need to replace it in Recovery Mode. But, you have another post and from reading that other post I think that you also have quite a few corrupt files on your player.
Why don't you first try to format in Recovery Mode? Create a blank text file as described in this link. Follow the instructions carefully!
After you have created the file, connect your player in Recovery Mode and drop the "sansa.fmt" file in the 16mB folder. Here are the instructions for recovery mode.
If this doesn't work, then you will also need to replace your firmware in Recovery Mode. But, try this first.
Note: this will delete all your content on your player.
