Strangely enough I have started having this problem as well. It started
occurring after I dropped my FMr. did you also experience the rejection of
USB connection?

Sorry if this has already been discussed, I try to keep with all the
topics but there are only so many hours in a day...

Ever since I've had my FM Recorder (nearly a year now) and using all the
various version of rockbox I have been plagued with the same problem.
About 1 time in 10 I go to switch on the recorder and all I get is a
brief flash of the 2 led nothing on the screen except the backlight (not
even the archos splash - I haven't flashed yet) and then it goes off.

I can even plug the charger in and watch it repeat this light show many
times (with the lights off it amused my daughter!)

If I leave it for half an hour or so (it's not fussy) and come back to
it, it boots ok.

Anyone care to share?
