Have had the player since Xmas 2017. Love it! Finally have a player that can go for days at work between charges.
Last month I noticed that it took hours to get to 'charged' on the display, and that it was getting very hot to the touch.
Once charged, i unplugged it, and the next morning it was dead again. So I suspected the battery was dying and perhaps ready to explode.
Ordered and installed new battery from eBay, but had the same results.
Discovered that the heat is not from the battery, but from a chip on the main board.

Further examination... its the ATJ2127 chip... the processor/decoder/audio output...
The player is operational while its plugged into a USB, but the chip gets hotter than you want to touch.
