Sounds similar to my problem (although since I have Rockbox in flash, my
boot is faster, and my symptoms differ). The smart money (Linus) guesses it
is a short somewhere on the circuit board, or the board's connection to the

I've sent mine to newmp3technology for repair; haven't gotten it back yet.

the first time it comes, and stays on, but when it gets stuck during boot it
doesn't even come on.

Yes, it comes on, and i get the archos splash screen. the bar runs almost
halfway through, and then gets stuck (no red led).

I have an FMR, and Ive been having some trouble with random HD lockups. I
could listen for hours with out any problems, but then the HD gets "stuck"
(it sounds like it starts to spin-up, but then stops and stars again, and
again...). Shutting off and restarting it doesn't help, 'couse it will then
get stuck during startup. I have to wait awhile (it varies, sometimes 5mins,
and sometimes a whole night). The only reason I could think of is the
temperature where I'm listening: ~10C.
Anyone know ! if cold can couse this problem?
