I had the same problem when I first bought my JB 6000 player. Just about
everytime I went to a hot place (the beach especially or even just in the
sun), it would show these symptoms (black screen, all icons on, cutting off
and starting by itself again.) I didn't have the Rockbox software at the
time. It was under warranty and Archos (France) replaced it - but it took
them 5 weeks... I hope this helps!
