Default S50 loses power/turns off while in home dock

This started a few weeks ago. When I put the S50 into a home dock (I have one at home and another at work) the unit will not power on. I need to re-insert it a few times and it finally does turn on. However, it will turn off after a few minutes.

One other interesting sympton seems to be that it's not charging while it's in the cradle and it seems that the powering off while in the cradle is related to the battery draining.

I've done the three finger reset, bought a new battery, and reset channels, but it's still happening. Seems to be getting worse.

Anyone else seeing these symptons? I looked through threads and known issues and didn't see anything similar.

I purchase my unit in December of 05 and have had more problems with this piece of electronics than anything I've ever purchased before. Anyone know how long the warranty for these things are?

Thanks in advance for any help.

Mine did the same thing after about a year. I contacted support and they gave me a new one. I suspect that the docking portion of the S50 itself wears out in about a year and it will happen again!

Unhappy

My S50 turned off in the dock while recording the Stern show this morning for no reason.

Lost the first hour of show.

I have had little to no problems with my S50 before, and I've had it since Dec '05.
