my clip zip wont work

So i have had my 8gb clip zip for about 2 years as of november. it has worked fine up until a year ago. Without a micro SD card the player will not work. Neither the usb connection or the main menu itself will not show. I have tried the 01.01.21"x". update and nothing. It stays at V01.01.21A. 

can anyone help me?
