I had the same error. "Contact manufacturer for repair" with a "5" in the yellow triangle. I called Toshiba, but since mine is out of warranty, they referred me to a 3rd party repair shop. THAT shop wanted a flat fee of $160 to repair. screw that

I decidede to just open it up since it was out of warranty anyway, and what did i find?

The hard drive flex cable had come lose. I re-attatched it and bam, working gigabeat.

If your gigabeat is out of warranty it is worth it to check cable connections!
