OK - GRR!
Newly acquired Webplayer, ebay, used. Arrived in good shape.
I plug it in and see the "Preparing for the Internet" message, then here a click, and the screen goes blank.
If I hold it up to a light, I can see (difficulty) that the display is still powered. It seems like the backlight is out.
control-music doesn't seem to make a diffrence, but pressing the funciton key produces a loud beep.
Yes, I checked the brightness and contrast controls, to no avail.
power button cycles (from green to amber) don't make any difference. I need to unplug and plug back in to get the display to come on and blink off again?
Anyone have any ideas?
