Subject: Re: charger troubles - please help!
From: Tammy Delahaye (tammydelahaye_at_hotmail.com)
hmmm... ok, i've got my battery covers off (stupid annoying little buggers
were being a tad difficult). and i'm thinking here's a loose connection in
the charger connection somewhere (no, i've never used another charger, btw).
the pin that the charger connectes to appeared to be pushed in a bit..
pulled that out. now, if my battery covers are off, I don't even touch the
recorder at all, and I pray despertly to the MP3 player gods, it will stay
connected enough to say it's charging. annoying to say the least.. but at
least its not out of commission.
