I was using the Fuze again today for a few hours. It played for over an hour with no issues, then the same issue I described above happened: buttons stopped working, screen wouldn't display, but the music just kept playing as if nothing was wrong. I couldn't control the song, volume, etc, but it kept rolling.
Then, after a hard reboot, it went about 5 songs before doing it. Reboot, 2 songs. Reboot, about 10 songs... it's random. Anyone have thoughts on the issue?
For the record the player was sitting still, not being bounced around. I've seen people mention button issues with loose ribbon cables. Could this be the problem?
