AV500 "freezing up"

Post by Bulletguy »

Hi

I have an AV500 30gb which was working perfect OK four months ago, but i've just recharged it only to find that when I click on a movie it opens, begins to play for about 4 or 5secs....and then promptly 'freezes' the picture. Tried other files and it does just the same. It's indicating as fully charged and i've never had any problems with it before. It has been stored in my Motorhome since returning from a trip in December and worked fine then.

Anyone any ideas as to whats wrong?

First thing I would do is check out the hard drive. Do usb transfers work normally? Backup the contents and format the drive?

Thanks Fredc......yes USB working OK so will try what you suggest. Am currently transferring everything off it and will then see if a re-format will fix it.

Strange really as it's not been near anything likely to cause it to malfunction, just left in a cupboard inside my Motorhome and was working perfectly normal in December. Not used it since then until the other day!
