A great wee player - too bad it was (apparently?) faulty...?
on 24 March 2014
I was delighted to find that this MP3 player did absolutely "everything it said on the tin". Simplicity wasn't even in it - so easy to use, and a welcome change from my previous one which apparently required a PhD in Engineering to operate it. How-and-ever...
From the very start it refused to play with any other headphones. (No, I wasn't testing it - there just happened to be an occasion, very soon after purchase, when its own provided headphones weren't available; so I grabbed another pair.) No dice. Even worse: it refused to play in the car via a cassette output - after which attempt it also developed a bizarre yellow squiggle on the LED display which no amount of re-setting would remove. I eventually contacted Philips who felt that it must surely be faulty. So I've had to send it back. Furthermore Philips are not apparently producing it anymore; so I'm now scouting round the web trying to find backstock, or an equivalent.
Has anyone else had either or both of these problems? I would be very interested to know...
