Did you happen to notice a thread called Sansa Firmware Thread in this board? It's 3rd from the top.
Just as I said in the 2nd post of this thread.

If the scroll wheel or main board have moisture (condensation) on them, all kinds of interesting things can happen.
Probably the best trick is to take a small bag and a handful of dty rice. Place the e250 in the bag and let the rice absorb the moisture for a day. Alternately, place the Sansa in a warm dry location for a while.
If the device is plugged in already, the charging operation does produce warmth as a normal byproduct, helping to dry out the device.
Resetting the e200 is done by perssing and holding the menu / power button for about 20 seconds.
You can reinstall the firmware by looking up the Firmware Thread in the highlighted "stickies" at the top of this forum page. The directions for manual firmware installation are there.
