2nd time in the shop
OK, I bought my SGP 4.0 in July 2012, I love it to death. Everything was going so great, until last week. I was jamming to some music at work and it just stopped playing. I looked at the screen and the "Samsung" screen was on, it stayed on for about 20 seconds, then went off. I tried to turn it on, nothing, I took out the battery, put it back it, nothing. The battery was atleast 90% charged at the time. I then made a service request through Samsung since it is still under warranty, I sent it in early last week, got it back turned it on worked for 30 minutes and did the same thing. I sent it back again and told them if they don't fix it this time to give me a different one. I don't really have any questions for you guys, just giving you some info, maybe someone else has had the same problem and can give me some advise. I don't know why it is shutting off, and not being able to turn back on. Maybe the battery is bad, hope they fix it this time, I think all they did last time was reset it back to factory specs, cause all my apps were taken off. Anyone have any issues similar to mine, please comment.


I haven't received it yet, but RSI (the people who fix samsung's warranty products) said they replaced the PBA board on my SGP 4.0. I hope it is fixed.

I, myself, did the same thing (well, sent it in because how fast the battery drains). Waiting to see how it is, whenever it returns.

Got it back last Friday (Nov 9th), so far so good. I guess something must have happened to my board, the repair guy said I basically have a new player. I guess the PBA board is the main board, like a motherboard. I'll let you know how things turn out if something goes wrong.

Thanks for listening, I was pretty ticked off. I didn't loose any data or anything, just had to load my apps again. I sure hope it goes well, I love my SGP.
