So for the whole day, I was wondering where I'd left my Clip+. I couldn't find it anywhere, and then it suddenly hit me - I usually keep my Clip in the tiny little pocket on the right hand side of jeans, which I had washed in the laundry! Went to find them, and sure enough it was still in there. I immediately pressed the power button, and much to my disappointment there was no response. I feared the worst, and thought maybe it was time to upgrade to another player.
But then I plugged it in my PC...and it lit up! There was no damage to the screen at all, and when I unplugged it and went through the files on the memory stick, it was as if nothing had happened!
Such a fantastic player. I'll have to see if there was any adverse affect on battery life or anything like that, but fingers crossed it will be fine
