Sorry to hear about you SLIMP3's playback problem.

My apologies if somebody already suggested it, but
did you try to reflash the firmware again?

I once had a player that initialized itself correctly,
getting an IP etc. but wouldn't play at all. After
reflashing the firmware it came back to life.

Hope it helps
Felix

just hold down the brightness button and it reloads the firmware from the
server.

Did it not say..........

firmware updating, or firmware updatred or something.

You could try running the firmware updater, in the firmware folder of your
server install.
