I have a clip + that I cannot turn on or off. I plug it into a power source to “Jump start” it. With luck I can get to the audiobook (or whatever I’m hoping to listen to). I cannot turn it off; it goes into ‘locked’ mode and I can’t release it. So it runs until dead.
I’ve reformatted (Through settings)
I’ve held power and home button down for over a minute
I have bought three or four of these little players (Audiobook junkie) and they seem to self distruct very easily.
Love the size, though.
