I now have 2 dead zens. to open them up I used my finger nail to get between the 2 halves. you have to slowly and carefully work them apart. once opened up there are several small phillips screws that must be removed, once removed you can now flip the circuit board over exposing the battery which is taped down with double sided tape and the wires are soldered into the circuit board. I intend to cut the wires and solder in new battery and use heat shrink tubing to insulate the wires the wires. Now all I have to do is find replacement batteries. pepsiman

There are tons of retailers on ebay that sell zen x fi batteries for about 14.99. I got mine w/ free shipping from Hong Kong.

Zen Xtra Battery Issue. HELP!

You could try cleaning the contacts on both the battery and the player (make sure it's unplugged) with some alcohol on a cotton swab. Other than that your battery may just have completely died and you'll have to purchase a new one. Hope this helps, Lee
