I just want some suggestions that my gt550ws doesn't seem like turning on anymore. It is struck on the welcome screen with shadow logo and didn't go any further. I have tried reset pin hole,different sd cards and different power source and cables. It is like 5 months old and never had an issue. Please advice. I would appreciate any inputs. Thanks.

Does it turn on normally without an SD card inside?

I haven't try that. I'll do that after this weekend since we will be out of town today. Much appreciated it. Thanks.

I agree, most likely error on the SD card.

Reset unit, SD card in and connected to power
> power on, press button on end (paper clip)
> when it gets going reformat SD card
> should work now.

Tried w/o SD card and works well now. I also formatted the cards with sdformatter and write/verify with h2test. I really appreciate both of you for the help. Thanks.

It happened again and again but it came back to life by itself after awhile. Not sure what the cause would be. Should I update the new firmware? Billnow posted somewhere that new firmware is not compatible or something? Thanks.
