8 gig clip battery problems

when i plug my clip into the computer to charge it’ll show its charging. unplug it and it shows funn but within a full minute the battery drains. the battery power bar jumps around erratically for a little while then it shows low battery and dies. any ideas?

Sounds like you might have a bad Clip, but you might want to try to isolate the problem by:

  • trying a different USB cable

  • trying a different USB port (especially if you haven’t tried connecting it to a high-power USB port yet)

  • trying a wall charger

Also, try re-applying the firmware (see the sticky thread at the top of the forum).
