Let’s take a moment and just look again to see what was said and by whom, shall we?
Nobody was talking about the “soft reset” or the issue I was experiencing they were talking about the “convenience” of the two buttons thus not on track. I realize they perform basically the same function that was not the issue.
The very 1st response to your original post was:
I would try doing the reset more than once , for some reason mine took a couple of tries to work.
Seems someone was talking about the soft reset after all, wouldn’t you say?

I have arthritis though, so holding that little button in is not always easy , it may have just been that which caused the problem (I miss the slider, which I could work sooo much easier!!)
To which you, hy_tek replied:
I agree I like the slider button better. This new on / off button is hard to operate unless you have tiny fingers.
Neutron-bob then submitted his 2 cents, as well as another comment by summerlove to which you came back and said:
Ok you people are getting way off track. This thread is about the clip locking up not the slider button. If you want to talk about the slider then start another thread of your own please. Thanks.
Looks to me as if you were right in the thick of it, hy_tek ; as off-topic as anyone else. Or is it OK for you to get ‘off track’ since you started the thread? Hmmmm?
A little diversion has to be expected & tolerated in these forums. There are multi-page threads here that no one even remembers what the original subject was! This miniscule detour wasn’t even close to that. In fact, it’s one of the moderator’s duties to steer threads back on-topic once they go astray. You’ll notice microsansa didn’t see it as an issue, so maybe you shouldn’t either.
But back on-topic . . . your player seems to be operating normally now, but if some electronic weirdness occured once, it’s possible for it to occur again, so if you’re leery about it see about getting it exchanged. Maybe it was affected by all the RF signals present on an aiplane, which is why they ask everyone to turn off all their electronic devices, to avoid any interference with the plane’s systems.
Then again, it could’ve just been suffering from altitude sickness.
