Default Zen is malfunctioning..nothing works so far

Since yesterday my zen has been acting weirdly. Whenever I play a song, all it does is fast forward, until it gets to the point where it cant anymore, then goes to the next song and continues fast forwarding. If I go to the radio, it just continually scans up and at some random point goes to the "now playing" screen. I have already tried formatting and updating the firmware. Neither of these have done anything. Is there anything I can try that might work?

That sounds as though one of your buttons is stuck. Do you have a case covering your player?

Yeah but I took it out of the case

Oh and another thing I forgot to mention, the sound quality is very poor. It sounds quiet/slightly distorted. I've already check to see if it's just the headphones but they're fine.

It sounds like the headphone jack is damaged. The "stuck button" could be the result of the damaged jack, as the ZVM's wired remote uses the 4th pin on this jack.
