    I did check the battery terminals and they are ok. I can't see any way to remove the case and I don't know how to clean the board. Any further help you can offer?

Hi, have you checked the battery terminals are not corroded.
If they are ok then it could be that it has either over heated or got damp being in your pocket if this is the case then you will need to remove the case and clean the board to make sure its free from corosion.
If this still dont solve your problem then the most likely cause is going to be a part failing on the board the problem with this is that you cant get them repaired and you cant buy the parts for the board.
Also the cost of repair would be more than the price of a new one so its not financially worth it.

If you have any questions give me a shout back and ill be glad to assist you further ok

    Hi, sorry its been a while but ive been away for the bank holiday and im back online now.
    If the terminals are ok then the chances are their is an internal problem with the board itself the problem is knowbody repairs these as they just cost more than the price of a new one to repair as your problem is internal fault then the best option would beto replace the mp3 player.
    Have you had it long incase you can take it back and get refund or exchange.

Try letting the unit reset by leaving the batteries out at least overnight, then putting in new batteries and powering on the unit.

Starting displayed won't do anything


Look for a lock or hold switch on the player. Most players have one of these to stop you accidentally switching it on or off when you're not using it.

Let me know how you get on!

My Zen Sleek Photo is a victim of a soda spill


Impurities in the soda (sugars, salt, etc...) can mess up both the electronics and the controls in an electronic device.  Getting the impurities out of the unit is the problem.  One solution I have used successfully with my cellphone (contaminated by sweat):

Remove the battery if possible (definitely turn the unit off!).  Soak the unit in CLEAN (no soap or other additives), warm (not hot) water, swishing it around gently from time to time, for a couple of hours.  If the water turns at all cloudy, replace it with clean water.  Then let the unit dry completely before turning it back on.  This may take several days, putting the unit in front of a dry air source such as a fan, shaking the unit gently from time to time (to move any water pockets around so they dry faster).

It worked on my phone, but my phone has no disk drive.  If it's not working anyway, this may be worth a try.  Good luck!

Touch pad stopped working.


Unfortunately no there is not. These players are basically disposable. If your out of warranty then you should get a new one.
