Have you done a factory reset on it?

@jcl945: I will try one. I know the Sansa forums too. Thanks.

@jcl945: is on to something there, I read that that worked for several users w/the exact same problem. Good luck reviving it, my sansas are good friends.

Warranty, warranty, we don't need no stinking warranty!

Avoid opening it up... Do that only before you are ready to throw it in the trash. It has a very tight cable connecting between the pcb and screen. The clip for that cable will snap with the slightest touch. It's possible to open it, but pretty risky. I broke one the first time but got it when I opened another. Not sure that would be of any benefit here anyway.

Force it to shut down by holding the power button up for approximately 10-20 seconds or until it responds. That will do that trick no matter how frozen it is, in my experience.
