Okay, so my screen stoppped working. I assumed the thing was dead, but I noticed I can still play songs. I tried a soft reset by holding the power button down for 30 seconds but it didn’t work. I wondered if mayne it was locked so I held the home button down for a while as I thik that was how you lock it. then I tried the reset again in case it was locked and in case locking it deactivates the power button (I don’t recall if it does).
I downloaded the firmware updater, but it only said there was a new manual. However, there IS a new version of the firmware. I manually installed that in case the old version had been corrupted.
However, I’ve now disconnected it as instructed, but how can I wait for it to install? I have no idea how long it should take, and no idea what it’s doing right now because the screen doesn’t work.
Also, after the first attempt at a reset, I could no longer play music. However, I assume that is because the menu returned to the root and I can’t remember how to navigate to music or anything to check. (Because the screen doesn’t work, remember)
I think in this case, what I have may be an actual dead screen, but I have no way to tell.
