Sorry to sound foolish, but what exactly do you mean by the Red LED of
Death? I personally have my unit freeze on me like I have paused it (though
I haven't), and still responsive to button presses to turn on the background
light, but nothing more. I can't select music or anything like that, and yes
the Red LED is constantly on. I had just attributed this to moving my player
too much, but perhaps this isn't the case?
