Question about Brookstone Audio Players & Recorders
If you dont have specific knowledge of electronics I would advise against opening up the unit. Since the unit is completely dead it points to the power supply. The plug could be faulty(you can only check it if it is not sealed), The powercord could have a broken conductor or perhaps it is as simple as a blown fuse(This can happen when power to the unit was switched on and off repeatedly in a short space of time).
To prove any of these components you would need at least a multimeter. If you want to open the unit remove the screws from underneath(after having unplugged it off course! ). There should be one under the warrenty sticker as well. Have a look around the inside of the unit close to where the power cord is situated. On the circuit board should be a fuse. It looks like a glass tube about half inch long and as thick as a pencil with a silver cap on each end. It can be removed by lifting out first one end and then the other from the holder. This is the only part of the unit you can replace by yourself without the nescesary equipment.
I would rather suggest that you send it in for repairs or find a willing first year electronics university student to do it for you. By the end of your first year they should know all there is to know about power supplies.
