Needing to re-set more and more often.

I have been using this 4GB Clip+ with a micro 8GB card (empty and unused thus far) with the Rockbox OS for a year or so and it has been fine, occasionally needing a re-set for unknown reasons. In the last couple of weeks, though, it has been needing a re-set about every 2nd or 3rd time I try to power it up (IOW, power-up fails every 2nd or 3rd time). The time required to re-set seems to have also increased from about 20 seconds to perhaps 30-35 seconds.

Has anyone else run into this problem and have an explanation and/or fix? I usually keep it pretty well charged, so I presume that power is not the problem.


Possibly, re-apply the latest firmware (see the firmware upgrade sticky thread at the top of the forum)? it is possible that the firmware has become a bit corrupted over time.

Thanks, I’ll give that a try.
