Having owned this player for less than 7 days, I am NOT impressed. Was sitting here listening to some music and the thing just went completely dead. I tried the following:
Attempted to power it up via the switch…Nothing
Plugged it into my PC…No response from the player and the PC didn’t detect anything connected
If I unplugged/plugged in the earbuds, I could hear a bit of static indicating it had power, but there was no screen, no music and controls didn’t light up or respond to anything.
** After about 5min, it just powered up: Not sure if it was caused by this, but I held the power switch in conjunction with the button in the middle of the wheel and it powered up. “It said refreshing media” and after a couple of seconds, it worked again. It reset my wallpaper color to default and started showing album covers in the list again. I had turned album covers off because they made the music skip if I was scrolling the list while playing a song.
Any idea what happened here? I kinda torn about this and feel I should return it to the store since tomorrow is my last day to exchange it. Not crazy about spending $130 on a player that could die on me next week. If its a firmware glitch then I can deal until an update is released.
