I’ve had the Clip+ for a little over a year now.
Yesterday, when I was listening to music inside of the store, I noticed the music suddenly stopped. I thought my headphones had stopped working, so I plugged them back in. I noticed the screen had gone dark, so I reset the Clip and it worked again.
Only it was now on the song I’d been listening to a while ago, so I hit the menu button to pop up the song lists, and it froze again. So I reset it again. It booted up on the same song, which I’ll call Track 13. I used the right button to continue onwards, only to pass a song I liked, so I hit the left arrow, and it froze again. I reset it, and it booted up on Track 13.
So today I finally said to hell with it, I’ll listen to Track 13. It played three seconds before the song fizzled out, it froze, and I had to reset it again.
Now when I disconnect it from the computer, it remains on the “disconnected” screen, with the battery still acting like it’s charging up. I just downloaded the new firmware, thinking it might help with my problem, but I don’t think it will.
Do I have to buy a new one?
