    Just stuck there on one frame. Of course its just BEFORE they fire the rocket to blow up the V ship. Couldn't be during .... or right after lol :rolleyes:

    Not one single button does anything. Nor does holding any button down do anything.

    So far my plan is to let the battery run down lol but I was curious about any other options.

    I was thinking maybe plugging it in to force a sync. ??

    pay close attention if it keeps locking up. it's a known hardware defect. my wifi launch one kept locking up on streamed video (abc, netflix, youtube, safari video, etc.) there are a few threads here at MR including mine.

    i also found this thread (and others) on the apple support forum:

    http://discussions.apple.com/thread.jspa?threadID=2388446&tstart=0

    i ended up taking it into apple and they swapped mine out. the new one didnt have the problem.

    thanks. i picked it up wednesday from an Apple store.

    I didn't go thru all the pages in that Apple thread; is there a model to look out for?
