No "words" on the menu items

I’ve had my Clip Zip for about a month. Tonight, the song names were jumbled when I turned it on. I paged through the different menus… all words jumbled. I turned it off and it wouldn’t come back on.

Plugged it into my Windows 7 laptop, and it came on. Now I have the different categories and menu items that I can page through, but the menus are blank… no words. If I check the files on the device through my computer, it looks like everything is there. I just don’t know how to get to anything because there is nothing on the menu to read.

I did try the 20-30 second reset… no change.

Any suggestions?

Okay, did a manual firmware update and it seems everything is back.

Not sure what happened in the first place… hope this doesn’t mean I’m going to continually have problems with this.
