Losing place often

When I turn off my Sansa Express while listing to MP3’s etc. it shuts down fine… when I turn it on again it asks what language I want and does not remember where I was in the song/mp3/book… 

Any ideas? It’s really frustrating to have to find the place each time manually… I thought it might be the USB flash part had worn out, so I bought another (went from 1GB to a 2GB) but still and express and the new “new in package” one has the same issue. 


The capacitor that holds these settings is failing. Time for a new player.
