My computer died while sending files to player, and now the refresh database screen appears on the player and it do nothing. I hope that removing battery will help. I can't even connect it to a computer in normal mode, it connects in recovery mode, but I can't update firmware then. I will write if something will help.

I called the technical support. He told me the following steps: 1. turn the player off. 2. switch the "hold" button ( on top) to see the orange area 3. keep pushing the "Rec" button and connect the player to the computer in the same time. 4. the player will come to recovery mode. 5.detach the connection with computer 6. release "Rec" button and let it turn off automatically 7. turn on the player. It should be fine. But for my case, it doesn't work. Then he asked me to remove the back cover of the player to take out the battery for one hour. Then repeat the same procedures. I am doing so now. Hope it works.
