Hi, damn ebay and cheap imports we should know better, but we don't so here we are trying to work out what we can do. I too had the hour glass, (fried my brain trying to get rid of it) well be hold i tried one of the suggestions to plug usb into computer hold turn mp4 player on and hold centre button,i was about to press fast forward button but didnt need to as ta da hour glass gone.
Why couldnt the manual just tell me that? oh thats right the manual is a translation of the asian manual so you can imagine how its worded! ....you press must to button......i probably would have understood it better had they have kept it in asian!

Oh my god, same thing here. I purchased this off ebay and stupidly gave feedback after about 3 days...worked great...went running yesterday with it and it was fine... kept it charged all night and wanted to go for another run...no dice. All I get is an hourglass that won't go away and no my computer won't even recognize this "USB new hardware" attached. This sucks. I sent a message to the seller. OF COURSE, he won't reply. I tried holding down the play button and doing the above instructions...didn't work. This is the PITS. So much for buying a piece of SH*T mp3 player on ebay to save some money. I"m quite annoyed.

I have read that some have had luck with restoring the MP4 player from the dreaded hour glass by : plug the unit in to the USB power and whilst holding down the middle PLAY button switch the unit on and hold the button down for 15 seconds, then quickly press the FAST FORWARD button to get the unit working again. I have a unit from Ebay Hong Kong and so far this has not worked or gotton rid of the hour glass. If others want to try a variation (s) of this someone might just crack the system and make millions of us happy.
