My Clip worked OK on Saturday. Turned it on Sunday and a small squiggle appeared on the screen and then went blank. Have tried all of the resets to no avail. Computer will not see Clip. It is 2 years old, and has been well cared for. Is it finished??
Give it another day, reset it again (repeatedly). If you get it back to life, manually apply the firmware.
You may also try plugging it into the AC or your computer–that sometimes helps to trickle charge the player and let it start ultimately later.
