Thanks John
On the drive itself, under the flap you have channel up and down buttons
With it powered on, hold these two buttons for 6 seconds, then release it.
This should force it to reset so you can set it up again and use the recorder.
Do this please and let me know the results.
Thank you

still the same

Thanks John, it confirms the issue
It is the internal memory that has faulted.
A corrupted firmware can cause this. But we have ruled this out by trying to reinstall it. The fact that we cannot get to the recovery window, confirms it is the memory that shorts out, and causes the device to stall on startup.
I am really sorry about this and you are going to have to return the recorder to have it replaced. It it will be covered by the warranty if this has not expired, and the replacement will be done at no cost to you.
I am really sorry about this, and if you have problems, or would like any additional information or assistance, please do not hesitate to let me know.
And if you can take a second to rate my service, that would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you
