I removed the back (didn't have #0 phillips, so used 1/16 flat head), removed the battery, reinserted the battery and it solved the problem. Tip: can buy sets of small screw-drivers at a dollar store, Odd Lots, etc for about $1.

Does it not working mean that you get a "key Locked, system shutdown" message, The thumbwheel glows but nothing else happen, nothing happens, or something else? If it is the first case and sliding the control does not work, the exterior slide has probably disconnected from the switch on the board. To fix it you will need to remove the 4 screws in the back to take it off (just slide your nails inbetween the metal back and the piece between the 2 covers and pry). Same thing for the front cover ( the black, plastic one) the screws are underneath the metal cover- one screw at each corner. I use a #0 phillips screwdriver for all 8 screws. the slide and the switch should now be visible, just slide the slide onto the switch - if not, something came apart and you need someone who knows what they're doing to fix it. if the thumbwheel glows but the screen does nothing you probably broke the screen. If nothing happens, It's probably scrap time for it.

If the onscreen message says "Locked" and then shuts off,
locate the Hold Button on the left side of your player. Slide that button
left to unlock your device. Then repeat Step 1 above. See The Basic
Controls section on page 5 if you cannot find the Hold Button.
If nothing works, try to remove the battery and place it after a little time (or a new one)

To reset the Pilot completely, turn it off, then press and hold the "Menu" button in the corner. Keep holding it as you power on the device and eventually it will ask you if you want to reformat internal memory. Say yes and your done. This will erase everything you have on the player, but at least it will work again.
