I recently got this product,a nd it already froze on me once. I let the batteries run out and then recharged it...It works fine for about, eh, 5 seconds (literally) and then I get this really weird looking screen (aka my current problem)...
The best way I can describe is that the middle of the screen is a reddish orangeish vertical line, along with two other vertical lines of the same color of each side. Also, I only get this screen when I connect the player to the computer via USB port. With this screen, I cannot do anything at all, whatever I push doesn't alter the screen.
Thanks in advance. I hope my message made sense, it's 4 AM here and I am impatient with technology to say the least.

Lithium ION batteries are usually rechargeable. The use mode for these batteries is that there are a set number of recharges that equate to the life of the battery. Usually that life is approximately 1,000 charges.
If you use your battery to 50% then recharge, you can do this ~2,000 times. As the life of the battery is used up, the maximum charge lessens which means where you may have had 8 hours of play time when the battery was new, you will only have 6 hours as the battery life is used up.
In order for a Lithium ION battery to recharge there must be at least a small amount of charge left as a "seed" for that recharge. If you drain a L-ION battery down to zero, it may never recharge again or the max charge will be reduced to an insignificant amount of the original full charge. eg instead of 8 hours you may only get 15 minutes, or 5 minutes, or no minutes.
You are much better off recharging when 50% depleted than using it up til your product stops.
L-ION batteries cannot be repaired only replaced. Most cheap products using L-ION batteries cannot have their batteries replaced.
Have you tried replacing the charger? The chargers wear out and your motorola may have just run the battery down. The charger may just touch it enough to make it look like it is charging but not enough power to recharge the battery.
It sounds like they had something with that last entry; if you've used it a while it's common for the wires connecting the screen to the machine to fail, resulting in about what you described. Of course you've tried the monitor hotkey (for switching simultaneous/separate display with connected monitors) already as well as closing/opening the thing to see if the display reconnects for the moment....
Otherwise it's pretty vague what might be wrong; it could be a PC CARD cellular interface came out a bit or caught EMI, knocking out the system board (permanently or not) or any number of screen (and connection) related issues. Try running with an external monitor, looking for junk in your laptop's ports, and certainly swapping out your hard drive with one you don't mind sending for warranty service (or at least completing some sort of backup on another machine.)
go to settings, options, advanced options, host routing table, press the menu key and select register now. If it says it will send when data is available then go back to home screen and select manager connections, mobile network options, and switch data to "on". If data is already on then pull your battery while the phone is on and leave out for 5 full minutes. Then replace battery. Your phone may be froze for a few minutes while it is receiving all the data service books.
unplug it from the comp if you havent already. does it have those sunken reset buttons? check the manual or online if you are not sure. if YES, reset the device and move on to the next step. If NO, you can either remove the battery (if possible) and try it back after a little while, or better, let it run out of charge and remove the battery then. By this time, please reboot the computer to make sure its fresh, to use layman language. Does it use a wall charger or has to charge on the comp? Does it have a regular USB 2.0 slot, cuz then you can use your phone charger or some other wall charger with the regular usb jack (male part). If no wall charger, I guess just re-plug it into the rebooted computer, and see if this helps it any. Sometimes my old Ipod 1st gen nano does this, and does not have a reset button or a way to remove the battery, so i just let the charge run out and the battery die, and when I charge it again, it works just fine. tell me how this works.
Gosh alright so the front little screen or the inner large screen doesnt work? I'm going through the same thing right now and yeah it really sucks. Taking the battery out does nothing all you have to do is go to your local verizon wireless store and theyll try to fix it or replace your phone
im experiencing the same problem...please help me....when i plug it in my computer it says it was connected and a new hardware found and asking for a installer and that it i cant do anything.....im using windows xp....guys, help me please! thank you very much!
Why does technology make you work for what you already paid good money for? Have you tried going into Recovery Mode? You do this by holding down the Play/Pause button while triggering the Reset button. Once there, you have four options. Try selecting Disk Cleanup and then Reboot. You might need to re-Sync a few things but it's worth a shot. Good luck.
