I have two Clip+ units, the second of which I was keeping “in reserve” since I like the Clip+ so much. The first developed problems, viz., the earbud jack needs to be resoldered, so I broke out my spare.
I loaded mp3 files on it and changed some folder names in the process. When I disconnected it from the USB connection, it appeared to restart, but then stopped at the flower-like image which comes immediately after the SanDisk name. There it stays.
Nothing I have tried gets it past that point. I have tried holding the power button, tried pressing the home key and power button (simultaneously, one before the other), tried pressing other keys alone or in combination, but nothing. It just looks like it is stuck in a software loop.
I have opened the case and was hoping that there was some way to reset the unit internally or wipe the memory and restart. So far I can find nothing useful.
Any suggestions would be appreciated.
