I don't know but please keep us informed as My fmr is slowly becoming more
unstable. After some use and when I shut it down it refuses to start. Wait
awhile and it will start. Lately though it only comes out at night. What a
MAN EATER! I want to get it fixed and at the same time do the 8mb mod and
install a new drive but hey, I must wait until it dies

Sadly yours...rocker

Hello All!

Okay, my FMR once only had one hardware fault, that was it accaisionally
getting the old ATA 31
error on startup caused by some bad connection somewhere. this could be
rectified by sqeezing the end
then switching back on.

But now I have a new problem. Similer but not the same. The sound of playing
MP3's now stops sometimes
and to fix it I have to squeeze the same place again. This is strange
though, as the radio is fine, it's just MP3 playback. The GUI says it's
still going and it is as when I squeeze in just the right place it

Any ideas what physical part of the unit could have come unstuck so I take
it apart and attempt to re-solder?

any help much appreiciated.

I don't know what I would do without it. Well, not listen to music on
themove I spose....
