Default Almost identical problem with an E345

I have a very similar situation with an E345. The only sign of activity on the startup screen is that the four dots on the lower right of the LCD make a moving pattern. None of the buttons, including the Hold switch and Volume controls on the side, get any response.

When I connect it to my computer (a PPC Mac), a circle made up of two arrows appears on the screen, with the following text below it:

Connected USB.
The Timer and Alarm will
become invalid.

The battery charge symbol in the lower right is active, but rest of screen is frozen.

On the Mac, the only recognition of the device is the following in System Profiler:

Product ID: 0x03fc
Vendor ID: 0x054c (Sony Corporation)
Version: 0.01
Serial Number: [32 hex digits]
Speed: Up to 480 Mb/sec
Manufacturer: Sony
Location ID: [not relevant]
Current Available (mA): 500
Current Required (mA): 500
I don't know how to get the firmware for this (original or upgraded) so that I can try reinstalling it -- even if I have to commandeer somebody's Windows computer to do so. Also, is there a recovery mode for these?
