Forgive me if is info is posted somewhere else…
I experienced a COMPLETELY DEAD express… I have know idea what I could have done, if any, to have made it happen. I’ve had the unit close to a year and have have several problems I had to find workarounds myself to get the thing back up and working.
The latest problem was that a day after I charged it and changed the music selection around (deleted songs, and added some more). It shut off normal, but when I tried to turn it on the next day, nothing. No startup screen, nothing. I first checked the lock switch. It was turned off. I tried connecting back to my PC to see if the computer would detect it. Nothing.
After looking on this forum, I came across a method of pressing several buttons at once to get it to come on. The method was:
Press the Power button, and the “+” Volume button at the same time… Well, that didn’t work either.
What DID work was this method:
Press the Power button, the “+” Volume button, and the “>>|” Forward Button at the same time.
I don’t know what that did, but it worked.
Does ANYONE know what this does? Or have a link to other methods?
