Default Forward button is possessed

my "forward" arrow button (the right one) doesnt work properly most of the time. while playing a song, if i press it, it usually goes BACK, or sometimes BACK then FORWARD (so you end up doing nothing), and rarely does it actually go forward like it should. I actually see the reverse icon appear on the screen. Every other direction is fine though. this happens anytime too, not just while playing music. navigating menus becomes a real drag when the right arrow doesnt actually go right. It worked fine for a while when i first got it.

It happened with 1.6 firmware, and ive upgraded to 1.8 and it still happens.

any ideas?
thanks

Re-load the firmware? Sometimes this solves the problem.

Maybe a hardware problem, there could be a solder joint that's touching the reverse somehow, and when you press the forward, it goes back!
Did you drop it at all?

i have tried reloading the firmware, but it didnt help. i guess I too will have to crack it open.

ive never dropped it (at least not on anything hard) but i do keep it in fairly tight jeans pockets...i dunno if that could do something. will update if i figure something out.
