I read through the posts and did not find this problem anywhere. Maybe someone will know. I have had the Fuze 4gb for about 3 months now and take great care of it. It stays in case and never gets wet. I tried using it today and when I turned it on it looks dimmer than normal. I then try to push any button and the display goes out (5 seconds) but the blue light on the dial stays lit. If I move the wheel up or down, it does move but as soon as I touch it the screen turns off for 5 seconds and I see where the wheel has taken me. Once I get to where I want, it will then play songs for me after some stuggling and waiting 5 seconds each time to see if that is really where I want to be. I have tried installing newest firmware manually a couple times and tried hard reset - hold switch on/press and hold left arrow and plug in connector. Nothing seems to work. I am beginning to think the unit is just bad. I lost my receipt so hopefully Target may exchange it. Any thoughts or comments?
