Question about Creative Labs Zen MicroPhoto MP3 Player

Open Question

How do I adjust display contrast/brightness?

I just acquired a Creative Zen Microphoto player on eBay. I charged it and my system recognized the device (after driver download) and I could even see the directory on the device using my Windows Explorer.

The problem is that I can't see anything on the display. It appears to be dark and I'm hoping that the display is not bad and that I just need to change the contrast/brightness to make it visible. Can someone give me step-by-step directions to do that, remembering that I won't be able to see any menu selections, etc. on the screen until it is adjusted?

slide the back off, take out the battery, put it back in while holding the power switch on. THis brings up the Recovery Menu, from where you have various options, formatting being but one.
