SA 018 - Where do I find the mentioned LED indicator? In the manual, they show LED as 5-8 LED circles giving colours from red, through yellow to green. However, the only LED indicator I find is PLAY/PAUSE (that is ONLY red or green - no yellow) on the top side of mp3 player. So do they mean this PLAY/PAUSE thingy as the LED indicator? Because the way the LED indicator is being explained in the manual is more than confusing. Secondly, and more importantly, apart from the information that before 1st use of the player you need to charge it for 3 hours, there is NO other information about charging the player :/ Oh yes, there is, the LED turns yellow while charging - well, not in the case of my mp3 as it is just RED (and I mean that PLAY/PAUSE indicator is red in colour, as it is THE ONLY LED indicator on the mp3) Thirdly, how am I supposed to know how long it needs to be charged when it gets off 2nd, 3rd, etc time? After I bought this mp3 player, I have spent 5 hours browsing the internet to get some information on this, instead of having it clearly and easily available by Philips - I am quite dissapointed from buying this thing as it took 5 hours of my life leading nowhere... grrr anybody willing to help?? :-)
