Apologies if this has been gone over. Tried searching but I can't seem to find a definitive answer for this one.
My Son's Player 5.0 (YP-G70CW) died quite a few months back and would no longer charge. With the device powered off the charge logo appears briefly, the screen goes black and then it repeats.
I've filmed it and put it on YouTube to see (sorry if you're not a Tool fan, just happened to be playing at the time). http://youtu.be/gGvYLwIggso
I bought a new battery, thinking that was to blame, but still the same issue. One time, after it had been sat in a drawer for ages it went into recovery mode and stayed there, I didn't have the software to hand to do anything with it at the time but that leads me to believe that it's possible to get back to recovery at least so all is not lost.
I've read somewhere that letting the battery completely drain can fix this. I've also read that disconnecting the battery and holding the power button for 10 seconds, then putting it on charge again can fix it. Neither have helped for me.
Has anyone had this specific issue and fixed it? I'm not really a Samsung fan so not familiar on how the bootloader works.
Any help much appreciated.
