I am on my second Clip+ 4gb player and this one still has the same annoying problem - audible buzz for exactly 14 seconds when I try to record with built-in voice recorder. I timed it and it is exactly when the LCD screen turns off (in 14 seconds after recording begins) the buzz is gone.
I tried firmware update, recording with no headphones plugged in, playback from the computer, etc. No matter what, the buzz is still there. I assume there is a design screwup – having the screen on introduces hum into the player relectronic circuits.
Any ideas how to beat it (other than wait for 15 seconds to start actual recording - that’s what I have to do and it is a big DUH!! )? And I am on the second Clip+ !!
