Subject: c200 black screen after updatee

c200 black screen after updatee

Hi,

I just updated my c200 from r27874 to r28863.  After the update, I was
able to boot into rockbox one time, during which I was able to change
the theme and play music for 15-30 seconds.  I then powered off the device
normally.

When I try to boot the c200 again, all I ever get is a powered-on
but black LCD.  During the initial boot, I think I see a single pixel
red horizontal line flash across the LCD.  This symptom (all black
LCD) happens during normal boot, USB connection boot, and OF boot.

I have two questions for any devs on the list:

1) What are the chances that something in the updated release
corrupted the c200 vs a coincidental hardware failure?

2) Is there any way to rehabilitate the device?  It's not bricked, as
USB connection works with both RB and OF.  Is there any chance to
reset the LCD controller to a good state?

Thanks,
Steve
