I recently bought a Clip Zip from Newegg as a gift for a family member, within the first day of use the display started showing artifacts on the upper half. This was before any content of any sort was added with the exception of a trial recording make off the integrated raido.
A simple restart fixes the artifact issue but it is recurring which is annoying, that is the least of my problems atm however. Just today (3 days after I had given it as a gift) the player froze and refused to start, again, no content from an external source was added. I was forced to reset the player by holding the power button down for 20 seconds and now all the sameple music and artwork is gone, in it’s place are 3 files with random names (letters and numbers in no legible order). Resetting the player wasn’t susposed to delete any music.
What is going on here? I’m very dissapointed in my purchase to say the least, the Clip Zip was highly recomended as a budget mp3 player in many reviews. I myself own a 3 year old walkman and it’s still good as new.
Thanks for reading.
