    Hey guys new to the forum. I need help while on the Vevo website and trying to play a video my screen froze up and is unresponsive. Is there a way to unfreeze it or do i wait for the battery to die out. I have a 16gb version of the PB. Thanks in advance.

    Press the power and volume up buttons for 10 seconds.

    Do a hard reset.
    Press the power button, the volume +/- buttons all together at the sametime for about 10 seconds.

    The PB will shut down and reboot.

    This should solve your problem.

    Have you tried the 3 button hard reset? power, volume up, volume down, altogether.

    when everything else fails, wait for the battery to suck away and recharge for a while

    I'm glad for this Forum and everybodys input because yesterday my screen froze and I remembered about the "hard reset" (power, + and - buttons) and that took care of it. Don't know why it froze but I'm glad I was able to resolve the problem by staying well informed on this site. Thanks again everybody.

    Also, to everyone who posted: try the same thing with just the power button (for 10 seconds) some time. It's easier and does the same thing!

    ^^^^^^^^^ I had to do this the other day.... played Bejewled 2 so much it locked on me... hit the power button and counted to 10...

    I know, I know.. yes it was hard for me with these scissors, but visually looking at each finger and counting them helped! LOL j/k

    But it did work and put the PB back in bezzznezz.

    I tried that first but didn't work, that's when I pressed "power button, +/-" together.
