Are you talking about one acquired while serving a term as a guest of the state or federal prison system?
If you're out, you'll have to send it into the company that provides these to the BOP (Bureau Of Prisons). For a price they will unlock it for you. They apparently have a locked-down firmware version on it that only they can over-ride.
This post (and entire thread) discusses the issue:

This is hilarious. For unlocking, the forum is the last place you ever could get. You may need to search elsewhere about this though.

@ jimmyghd - What's hilarious is that you responded like this to a 7 month-old thread.
And all searching will do is result in the advice already given; to pay the fee to get it unlocked.

Here is a link on how to do this for anyone that comes across this.
PS: I know this is an old thread, but its the first one that comes up in google.

Are you talking approximately one received while serving a time period as a visitor of the country or federal prison gadget?
in case you're out, you'll ought to ship it into the enterprise that gives these to the BOP (Bureau Of Prisons). For a fee they'll unlock it for you. They apparently have a locked-down firmware version on it that only they are able to over-journey.

This is kind of a really weird situation
There is a way to help.
Get the MNTCMD apk or app (if it's even available anymore)
Mount your sansa to your device
Use this code in MNTCMD (this includes UI)
/brw ch. 3
/getcode scr 1
Running all possible codes from 0000 to 9999...
Code is "----"
Are you sure you want to exit? [Y/N]
