#298430 - 15/05/2007 18:42 Karma powers up fine, but won't play music

Hi All,

Just wondering if someone can help me.

I was lucky enough to acquire a Karma through the raffle at last years Empeg meet. It has worked fine, up until a few days ago.

It's got about 18GB of music on it, and still boots up just fine. I can navigate through playlists, select tracks and even rebuild the music database. There are also no bad tracks listed.

However, when I select a track it just refuses to play. The timecode indicator remains on 0:00. I can move forwards and backwards through the track listings, but cannot fast forward or rewind with a track.

Has anyone seen this before? Is there a solution?

I had something like this once, I think the only way I got it to work again was to delete all the music and reload

Try upgrading from recovery mode (hold menu then power on). ISTR there's an "erase everything" tickbox in the upgrader?

That should probably fix it - it sounds like something in a state file has got borked. You'll lose the content from there unless you copy it off first (obviously)
