Default How to disable blue light in sansa player

Hi Guys,

I am using sansa e280 player,one problem is its bright light.Anyone can point me how to disable or reduce the brightness of the light.I think somewhere the data to disable will be hiding in the firmware.

Thanks in advance.

Thanks
Bala

Rockbox is the only way to do it...

You could open it up and spray paint the bottom of the wheel

U could use a hammer, but run into a risk of permanatly damaging your player

Now THAT's a funny idea... Sandisk taking suggestions regarding their firmware! You can try. But don't hold your breath waiting for them to act on your ideas, no matter how great they may be.

I will be very glad to know a solution if it existed... in one of my emails to sandisk, I suggested removing the useless light/making it an option.... wonder if it will ever make it to their firmware, USELESS light, I hate it too!

if u want to disable the LEDs that light the wheel, try using some black electric tape on them.This way u dont hav 2 break the sansa or netin.If u want to dim them use some tint.

Best option is Rockbox. Once you try it, you will love it!

I use rockbox exclusively except for charging my Sansa, because Rockbox does not support the USB.

What I did was open it up, take the wheel out, and run a Sharpie permanent marker around the inside of the plastic wheel. Did wonders, dimmed it down to just the right brightness. You can probably find the tutorial that I used on this forum somewhere. (It's been a while, I dunno where the tutorial was, I think is was in this subforum)

Good luck,
Isaac
