Had the same problem and was looking for a fix and came upon this site. Someone suggested pressing vol and select buttons together. That didn't do it but when I tried the menu/power button together with the square select button, the thing came back to life. If this works do post back.

The solution with the MicroSD card works - read it if you haven't already. Here is a synopsis:
Put a MicroSD card in the slot designated for it and then plug it in. If you don't have an MicroSD card for it, use a paper clip, but be careful with it so as not to damage any internal parts.

You can do a hard reset by pressing and holding down the Select button (it's a silver square on mine) while pressing the volume + and - buttons simultaneously once.

Let me know if this helps. It didn't seem to fix my problem!
