no xcreen activity

first my player gave me an empty music list, but when it was connected files were still seen, then the screen jus went black and only the light around the play/pause keys comes on and it just stasys on nless the power button is held down, i’vew tied the soft reset, also the hold button combo’s but to no avail, as it doesn’t even come up on any pc, and they have windows xp , even got media player 11. it seems a lost cause, any suggestions, i’m even considering to stasrt buying an iPOD.

have you tried contacting sandisk? assuming its still under warranty
