Re: problem with black screen and white lines

You need to determine if your player is the Rhapsody version or not.

To find this, check the back of the device for the word RHAPSODY, or a letter R after the model number (i.e. - e250R)

The software is different and you should clarify which one it is before we continue.

You can "add to the question" with your answers and ill reply.

Best of Luck.
