Hi. Has anybody of you ever experienced this? Is this a known error which sometimes occurs within this product line?
When I bought the Clip+ everything worked as expected. For a couple of weeks. But now, I cannot turn it on anymore. No matter what buttons I press, it doesn’t “wake up”, the display stays black and I cannot hear any sound.
OK, I thought, maybe it is dead or at least the internal battery is dead. But mysteriously enough, this is not the case! When I connect my external power supply (2x AA to USB emergency charger) the Clip+ wakes up and works without any problem. And funny enough, the battery displays “full”. I thought this could be an error, but I went jogging with it for 2 hours (without external power supply of course) and when I came back home, the Clip+ was still running. So the battery is not dead either.
… but what is it?
And more importantly, can I fix it somehow? It’s not comfortable to always carry an external power supply with me just to “kick start” / “wake up” the Clip+ before I can use it …
The player is still under guarantee because I just purchased it a couple of weeks ago, so I can always send it in for replacement, but of course I wouldn’t if it’s not necessary, so I thought I ask the professionals around here …
Many thanks for any help.
