Wondering if anyone have or have had one of these and might be able to help?

I have just got the hands on a zoom r16 recorder: Interface: Controller
My problem is that when I power on it says: Loading project, Project saving, Goodbye see you, Please power off.
While starting up the usb port light lights up.

I have what I think is a valid sd card in, I have tryed several with the same result.

Using it as a soundcard/sd reader and controller works fine but not the actuall recorder thing...

I can only use it with batteries since the power supply is gone if that may be the problem... far fetch? yeah I know ...
Is there any other way to do a hardware reset other than holding the clean button while powering on (which does not work)

Is this a new unit or "used"?

I have one of these and have always found the supplied power cable finicky. Shouldn’t be hard to get a replacement.

Make sure the write protection tab is not on for the SD card.

Have you done a format of the SD card on a computer? When you use it the first time in the zoom it should setup the required file structure.

Try another SD card.

I got it to work, I replaced the batteries with normal ones (had rechargeable)
