RockBox Version:r16209-080203

Problem occurs as soon as an attempt to play the video is made.After the preliminary startup screen of the MPEG player plugin(After either "play from beginning" or "Resume at _:__" is selected)

Description:The display turns off leaving the backlight on. However, the sound of the video can be heard. The buttons are normally functioning. RockBox remains completely functional but for the display which does not resume even after we exit the MPEG player(By pressing the menu button).Hence the player has to be switched off.

The problem was produced with all videos, including which ran perfectly for another user.

Note: Users of the c200's in which the problem occurred also reported exactly same results when the Jewels And/Or Star games were run on their players.

This task depends upon

The attached patch fixes these problems for my c250.

I've also attached a compiled version for people to easily test. Use a current rockbox build and replace the .rockbox/rockbox.mi4 with the one I've included in the zip file.

i had a similar but slightly more anoying problem, when the player (a sansa c250) went into standy (turned its screen off) and i pressed a button, the backlight went on but the screen stayed black. This didn't happen all the time and not in the mpeg plugin ... just while playing music. I've since installed your version and i've not had this problem again. tnx

The display on my C250 wasn't working when I used album art. This patch fixes that problem for me and also fixes the bug  FS#8825 .
