clip+ does not react anymore

i have a bit of a  problem

 

it crashes , stays in boot up screen, sometimes goes in menu view but reacts verrrry slowly, and behaves very crazy all around;  then connect to pc, the pc mostly gives error message that the connected device is faulty / cannot read ( or something)

 

i have reset the device by holding the power button , but no change

 

is there anything further i can do beside the normal reset ?

 

or is the thing damaged?

it was bought off ebay 2 years ago as a rechecked or revised or recalled or similar in this kind

Re: clip+ does not react anymore

If you can get to the Settings menu on the device there is a Format option or if you can get your computer to recognize it, you could format it there as well. That may solve the issue. Note that if you do format it, all your content will be erased (not firmware, only files you have added).

 

And I think the word you are looking for is "re-furbed" as is re-furbished.

Re: clip+ does not react anymore

yes i know i had that word in mind too

 

well seems it does not react, its so unresposive you cannot navigate in the menus, and connecting to the pc does not work either, the device turns on but does not show up on the pc, tried several times

 

the prices for the clip + are pretty stable too right? its not gonna be any lower than 4 years ago right? whats a good price?

 

maybe the tiny hole on the backside do something like that, reset or reformat ? i tried poking in the hole a bit but no effect

on back usb " device drivers could not be installed

Re: clip+ does not react anymore

only files in the device root :

 

USBSÓ=.
0.00

 

after another couple  failed attempts of formatting

device shows up as unallocated space so when trying to format and create a parittion in the windows manager for the device it simply says FILE NOT FOUND

Actually, the prices are much, MUCH higher on used, old stock, re-furbs, etc. than what you could buy them for when they were a current model in production. Very limited supply; high demand.

Don't poke anything into this hole! I know it looks like a reset button commonly found on other electronic devices, but it is the microphone for voice recordings!
