Media player distorts sometimes

I've got a 2 month old 16gb playbook and sometimes the music player is all shreeky and distorted to the point it doesn't even sound like a song. These are songs stored, so internet is not an issue. Also does it with video. Restart seems to reset and then it works fine. This has happened about 3 or 4 times so far.

Any ideas would be appreciated.

Re: Media player distorts sometimes

I get some glitches on my PB that seem to appear after playing some games. To correct the problem I use the three button reset. Hold down the Power Button and both volume buttons at the same time for 15 seconds and then wait 1 minute then hold the power button only until the red light flashes then release it and wait for the PB to reboot which will be about 4 minutes. This should hopefully clear things up. Let me know the outcome.
