There is an issue on some iPods where occasionally powering on the player by pressing a normal button does not work, and the iPod must be reset by holding MENU+SELECT before it will power on correctly. If you observe the screen closely when trying to power on you may see a small "low battery" symbol displayed very briefly, without the backlight being enabled.
Have you ever experienced this issue with a standard build? If you have ever
seen this happen, even if it's not a frequent occurrence, please select Yes for your model in the poll above. If you have been using your iPod for some time with Rockbox (at least a couple of months, with a build no older than 3.x) and have never
seen this problem, please select No for your model in the poll above. If you have some model that's not listed, and you have seen the problem, please post in the thread and state which model you have - but if you haven't, then you can ignore this post. Nano 2G users can also ignore this post as the hardware is completely different and the problem does not exist.
If you have a custom build, please check if the build includes the patch for FS#10107. If you have FS#10107 in your build then do not vote
. Other custom build patches are fine. (If you do have FS#10107 but you still see the problem anyway, then please comment to this effect
The reason I am interested is there is a workaround for the problem in FS#10107, but it's not clear for which models it should be applied.
