    I'm occasionally having a weird video playback problem and I can't figure out what it is.

    Doesn't seem to matter which player or video I use, but it'll play the first video file fine, then when I come to watch another it will either hang on a black screen or play the video in a sort of scrambled diagonal picture.

    Can't think of another way to describe it!

    Amy ideas?

    Silly question, but is it the same video? Is it one you've recorded yourself or you've stuck on the SD Card?

    Have you tried clearing the data and cache of the media players you're using?

    It's not unfortunately, and it happens on files dropped on the SD card.

    I use mobo player as my player of choice but it affects all the players installed. Also has the same effect on some games, notably Asphalt 6.

    Only way I've found to fix is a restart or switch off, pull battery, start up. This takes a lot of time however!

    Wonder if there's an issue with the SD Card? That's the only constant I can see. Also, what class is it?

    Try running a H2testw, see if it reports any errors?
