Default Sudden shut down!

My J3 shuts down multiple times. It happens very sporadically but when it does it's very annoying.
I exclude the battery, as when it turns off, the battery is always fully charged.

I am using the 32gb version with an external 16gb memory card. Could it be due to a malfunction of the external memory?

Has anybody experienced anything similar?

thanks

I own my j3 now for 2 months and it recent happens that the display was totally frozen. I could not use the display neither the other tastes. After a couple of hours the J3 shut down itselfs and i could use it again.
Don't no the cause of it the but just befor it happens i put sone new music on it and i think that may have caused the problem. I removed the music and until now it works well but as said i don't know if that is problem?

I've heard that the J3 can freeze a lot with FLAC music. Most of my music is FLAC, and I already got a freeze by now (I've had this player for a week now). But you needn't wait for hours till it shuts down, just find something sharp and push the reset button on the back. Let's hope a new firmware will fix this.

Thread moved to the J3 forum, I don't know why you posted it into the Cowon "Accessories" forum.

If you look at his stats, that was the last time the OP posted so I doubt he's coming back ...

Came across this forum through reading news elsewhere of J3 discontinuation and registered so that I could post a reply here, as what I have to say may be of use to someone.

A couple of months ago after over a year of flawless operation my J3 started to randomly shut itself off when I was listening to music on the bus to work. Sometimes several times on a single journey, other times once every few days. Now this wasn't a freeze but the device actually powering itself off. No reset was necessary I just had to switch it back on. As you can imagine this was incredibly annoying. There didn't seem to be any common factors with regards to the file being played, its type or its storage location i.e. onboard or sd card. I tried completely discharging and fully charging the battery, switching the sd card and also upgrading to the latest firmware but all to no avail. The damn thing kept switching itself off.

I'd almost resigned myself to the thing dying on me when I noticed something. I heard the familiar "du-du-du" interference noise from a mobile phone receiving a text message just before it shut down. My phone (Xperia Arc FWIW) and J3 were next to each other in my pocket so on a hunch I put the phone in a different pocket and waited. Sure enough my J3's behaved itself ever since.
