I have a had this clip for about a year and never had any problems with it but recently it seems pretty much dead to me.
A week ago I left it plugged into my usb to charge and when I came to use it the problems started.
First It would not turn on and I looked up ways to solve this and tried the reset trick holding the power button. After I got it to turn on it would freeze at the flower icon. I began trying resets and suggestions on these forums but then I got the error message that the memory was full and I need to remove 90 mb of memory. I know its not full but at this time I couldnt get it to connect to my pc to try to delete any files. After trying for a few days and a bunch of resets I finally got my computer to recognize it but It wouldn’t let me do anything until I formatted it. So I did this hoping it would wipe the memory and I could just put all new songs on it.
Now to my current problem. The clip will not power on no matter what reset trick I try now. I have tried all of the ones I could find. holding power button for 30 sec, holding the middle button, holding power and then home button. Nothing has worked and my computer can recognize it when I plug it in but only as a removable disk.
I would like to try to fix this and not have to buy a new one and im pretty sure its over the warranty because its older then a year. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I can’t tolerate running without an mp3 player to listen to music so I would like to fix this as quickly as possible
