I just bought a recertified 4GB Fuze for my mother a couple of days ago from a reputable online retailer. It seems to be having some strange power issues. I can only turn the device on if it’s connected to a computer or a wall outlet. Once I disconnect the device from the wall or computer it stays on and funtions normally. If I turn it off I am not able to turn the device back on until I plug it back into the wall or a computer. This occurs no matter how long or short I have had the device off the charger.
So it seems the device’s battery and power switch is good. But it won’t power on unless it gets a little extra help from the outlet or computer.
Any thoughts? Did I get a dud?
Thanks in advance!
