There was a thunderstorm in my area so I had my mp3 hooked up outside on the porch recording the rain and thunder. I’ve been doing this for a while, and this time the spot I had it hooked onto was wet. 47 minutes later I went out to get it, and saw that it was wet. It was laying horizontally (if I remember correctly) with the buttons and screen facing up.
I saved the recording and turned it off. Then seconds later gave it to someone who tried to turn it on. It froze at the starting up screen. I took it after 30 seconds and it felt slightly cold. After a few minutes I looked up how to reset it or force it to shut down. As it isn’t run by batteries (rather, it charges via USB) I couldn’t remove anything, nor would it shut down by me dropping it. So I found how to force it to reset/shut down by preessing the power button for 20 seconds. Then i immedeitely turned it back on but it wouldn’t do so.
I tried to connect it via USB and the computer recognized it, however it was still frozen at the startup screen. Soon, it displayed the message “not enough space for music db please free 90 mb” and so I disconnected it so I could try to remove some stuff. However, it froze after turning off and will not turn on no matter what now.
