ED Magedson – Founder
Two years ago, I purchased a Sansa e280r MP3 player from Best Buy. I have really enjoyed the player. Last week, while listening to some MP3 files, the player suddenly stopped working. After recharging the player, I turned the unit on and the unit was frozen. I called technical support, but they informed me that support was only offered by email only.
After a series of emails back and forth, I received the following email: I truly understand where you're coming from however, please note that SanDisk does not sell replacement parts or provide repair services for the Sansa players. Sansa Players are under a One-Year Limited Warranty. If this expires then we can no longer request for the replacement of your device. Unfortunately the device's warranty has expired a year ago. I feel very alienated as a Sandisk customer. I paid almost $200 for this unit 2 years ago, and now Im told you dont provide any type of repair services for the product. This makes me very wary to ever buy another Sandisk product because now I know that once it breaks outside of the warranty, you wont even provide a means for me to get the product repaired. Im almost sure the issue is the firmware needs to be reflashed, and I have offered to send the product in and get the work done at my expense, but the only option I have been given is, to buy another unit.
