Topic: Chumby one dead???
Yesterday, I started the USB music on my Chumby one, and then went into the night mode. After a minute or so, it started to go to the boot up sequence (the one with the bubbles). It got stuck in it... The Chumby never got to the Octopus part of the start-up. It just stayed in the bubble sequence. (It finished it, and then started over.)
I unplugged my Chumby one for about a minute, and then plugged it back in the adapter. (Hoping it will work again.)
This time it didn't even start up anymore. The screen stayed black and even if you hit the power button nothing changed... (The Chumby didn't turn on, because I didn't hear the sound of the Octopus. That's how I know it didn't boot up.)
Thinking the adapter might have no power, I checked if it still has power. (It did and it had about 5.3 Volts.)
I didn't change anything the last few weeks with widgets or adding new files to my USB. (I didn't even unplug it for about a week for that matter.)
I had no other problems with my Chumby the last few weeks except, that it re-initialized into the wireless network about once everyday.
For me as a student it was very difficult and expensive to get my Chumby here to Belize(Central America). If I would (warranty already expired) send it back to the USA it would cost about the same amount of money as it was to buy it. (I have owned my Chumby a little more than a year and it's very sad that it already seems to be broken...)
Now for my question:
Is my Chumby dead, or what happened? (I didn't see any smoke coming out of it and it didn't smelled burned, so I'm sure it didn't overheat)
I hope to get any help or feedback soon
