blue ring of death

hi good people.

i accidentally formated my sansa e260 to a NTFS.


when i turn it on ,the blue sircle turns on but the screen is black

.
i'm not sure if i have a V1 or V2 but i tryed both ways to enter the recovery mode (since the computer dont recognize my mp3 anymore) but it dose nothing (i tryed to push the lock button as if i wanted to see more orange space while it's connected to the computer...but nothing happend).


i saw alot of wierd ways to fix similar problems (which too my an hour !!!) but i got stuck in the recovery mode stage.
if you need any more information please say so and thanks for any help given !

 

*please dont give me another thread cose i've read alot of them and i coldnt find anything of help. *

Re: blue ring of death

Maybe you have a v2 version? V2's do not have a Recovery or Manufacturing Mode. Have you tried taking the battery out for a few minutes to possibly reset it?

 

And how exactly did you "accidentally" format it to NTFS? Windows kinda has safeguards to prevent that sort of boo-boo.

 

If you indeed have a v2, you may be hosed as far as fixing' it.
