My X5 first generation has worked fine since I bought it in May 2016, but last night it began to refuse to start up. It begins the start up process but then shows the message "Battery Exhausted - Shutting Down" and then shuts down.  I've tried to charge the battery (which I think is largely charged already) but the X5 shuts down as soon as the picture of the battery comes on the screen.  Plugged in, the X5's charging light is green but it still won't start up. Poking the end of a paper clip into that tiny little reset button hole had no effect. 

Ideas? I love this little player!

Replace the Battery.  You'll need to search the 'Net on how to open the back of the FIIO.  I'm sure someone has done it already.

Many thanks!  It was still under warranty, so I sent it to Fiio for servicing.
