If the picture does indeed display, above, it will show what a friend of mine recently found. I saw no model number, on the unit, which is why I uploaded the photo - in hopes that someone might be able to shed some info on it.
My friend does not have a computer, and (because I also own a Sansa (View) player) he wanted me to check it out for him. Upon attaching my charging cable to it (assuming that mine would charge the found unit, seeing as how it did properly fit its connection port), I was able to see that the clear ring, surrounding the middle button, did illuminate in blue color. However, that was ALL I was able to get. No screen display, or anything else. So I let it stay connected for a few hours, in hopes that maybe the battery might have needed longer to charge. But all was to no avail.
Is it at all possible that the above condition might translate into nothing more than the need for a new battery? (providing, of course, that this particular player would allow for battery replacement).
Please infom ASAP, if that might indeed be a good possibility.
