Steve, Mine did this and I was able to get it working again by taking out the 3 tiny screws holding the case together. In my case, I had tiny grains of sand from the beach, which were probably had salt on them and were probably drawing moisture to the board and shorting components. I brushed it off carefully with a paint brush, blew it out as best I could, and generally cleaned the parts. Eventually, it came back to life! and continues to play today. Good luck with yours!

These players have issues with id3v2 tags or something. Try stripping off the tags of the mp3's and/or upgrading the firmware Here the links to download the firmware v1.65 and v1.75 v1.65 http://www.iriver.com/html/support/download/sudw_view.asp?searchProductIdx=&searchCategoryIdx=&searchString=firmware&page=3&idx=752&tmpSearchProductIdx=&tmpSearchCategoryIdx=&tmpSearchString= v1.75 http://www.iriver.com/html/support/download/sudw_view.asp?searchProductIdx=&searchCategoryIdx=&searchString=firmware&page=1&idx=829&tmpSearchProductIdx=&tmpSearchCategoryIdx=&tmpSearchString=
