How long was the player exposed to the cold? Have you tried charging it with a wall charger? Changing the battery is not easy, as it is is hard to open and close the player case without damaging it, and hard to find an inexpensive decent capacity battery that will fit. You could get an inexpensive external usb battery pack, like the Duracell Instant power.
I dont think is was more than 1-2 mins at the most… (at first I did not think of it, as I kind of thought that it was the new FW revision acting up… but searching the fora, put me on to this thread)
What would a wall charger do that a regular computer USB utlet cant?
Pitty, and even if I fully understand the trade-ofs one has to do in construction like the Fuze, perhaps changable batteries would be something for the future! … would make the unit greener in a more and more enviromentaly aware world!
To me, using a external battery-pack kind of fails the purpous of the Fuze! (ie.size and pportability) … But I guess it’s a way around my problem…
I read something about re-formatting in another thread yesterday, so I did that and ran a full re-install of the FW. I have my unit running now to see if something has changed…
Thanks for the DIY battery change tip Bob! dunno if I’m up to the task, haven’t soldered anything outside of audio cables in years…
BTW, newly recharged, the battery capacity read 100% in the info-section!
