sansa express dead

hi! i bought sansa 2gb express couple of months ago. all was quite fine until a few days ago, when i inserted it into a usb slot of a pc, it got warm and died. pressing buttons or inserting it in usb slots doesn’t have any effect on the device, it remains black. should i just try to get rid of it or its a common problem?

First, try a soft reset. Press the volume up (+) button and the center “Select” button at the same time.

 

If that doesn’t work, then try updating the firmware following the instructions in the attached thread.
