I have downloaded the FW update version 1.29 to upgrade from 1.22.
First I tried to update it via updater program. It was already suspicious, that it only offered manual for downloading.
After that I tried manual upgrade as described in the instructions.
I got some sort of update failed message on the screen, after that it booted.
I held down the power button for 15 seconds to reset just in case.
After that the device only shows SanDisk logo on the screen for some seconds, then blanks out/shuts down.
When the USB cable is attached, it keeps the logo on the screen and nothing else is happening. Also, the PC is unable to detect the device.
Tried: resetting and holding down power and then attaching to USB.
Any ideas? I really liked this player and it would be nasty to have it bricked with so little effort.
Thanks in advance!
