Default Sometimes my YP-R0 won't start, not until several tries.

Hallo to everybody!!!
First of all, I must say that the problem I am going to explain now, is not something completely new to my YP-R0. I mean, I have Lightbox (only Lightbox, no dual boot) on my device since a couple of weeks, but I had this same problem when I used the original Samsung firmware (1.25).
Of course I never had this problem in the past, it is something that started to happen only a few weeks ago: SOMETIMES I need several tries until my device starts. For instance, now that I have lightbox, it won't go further than the penguin. In those occasions, I need up to 4 or 5 tries until the device finally starts, and then, once it has started, it works perfectly. Other times, it just starts at first try. Of course, I have tried several solutions: for instance, to totally format the device, and reinstall the firmware again. But the problem remains the same. Any advice, opinion, will be welcomed! Thank you very much!!!

Is it like when you make a checkdisk of the hard drive of your computer? Should I connect my Samsung device to my laptop and from my laptop make a checkdisk of the YP-R0 memory? Thanks for answering, Lebellium!

Sorry! I meant there is no problem with my device's memory, not that the problem I explained is gone

The problem is that it could be really true...it may be dying.

I met several cases of YP-R0 and YP-R1 with dead flash memory.

Unfortunately I don't really have further ideas. If the recovery tool (http://www.anythingbutipod.com/forum...ad.php?t=69099) doesn't help, then it's an hardware issue.

Thank you very much for your answer, Lebellium. Yes, the player is certainly dying, because no matter the firmware you install on it, the problem remains the same. And I cannot try the recovery tool, as I cannot build that special cable myself. I don't know where could I get the cable either. if there's a web on internet where it can be bought, I haven't found it so far. Anyway, I think it's a hardware problem, so it can not be solved through the recovery tool. I think I bought the YP-R0 over five years ago. Although it has some serious bugs, there's one thing on it I really love: its radio player. I live in a small town (some would call it a village) in the south-west of Spain, where it is quite hard for most mp3-players to tune most of the national radio stations. But with my YP-R0, this problem doesn't exist. That's why I will really miss it, once it definitely dies. If in the near future I decide to buy a new device, I would like to get one with the same radio player quality as the YP-R0 (or even better )
