Power button issues
Hi there, I can't seem to find any info on this problem so thought I'd try asking here. My vision M takes a good few tries of the power slider before it turns on. Once it turns on everything works fine. When I try turning it off again the power slider seems to control everything! It pauses, plays, fast forward, and switches between menus!

I've had it for 6 years without any problems so if its unfixable I've got my money's worth out of it.

Would really appreciate any advice. Ta!

I know this is an old thread, but I have two ZVM's (30gb) My original one I have for years with no problems ... got a used one a few years ago, the eBay seller said the slider switch was tricky, needed to be slid with a bit of pressure to the rear to work right. I got it anyway (good price) and yes it did the same thing you describe, sometimes return to the tune I was playing, sometimes to the recorder, but I had to slide it "just so" to get it to shut down. I opened it up and manipulated the power switch with tweezers and it worked fine, cleaned it up as best as I could, reassembled and it works better now ....

Now, my old reliable is starting to show the power button problem ... what is it with the power button? Why should forward or rear pressure while sliding it have anything to do with anything besides shutting it off!!!

And I'm surprised there isn't more response about this problem on the boards... it has to be more widespread, somebody must know what the problem is...
