MP3 player left on for hours.
Apparently my boyfriend left his mp3 player on from 7 am until about 3:30 pm yesterday. The screen is black with a white logo of a vision:m and a triangle with a ! mark inside. We charged it for 5 hours and nothing. I tried to reset and attempted recovery mode as well with no results (it simply goes back to this screen). The computer will not recognize the player either. Oh I almost forgot to add... the front of the mp3 player shows solid blue backlight as does the power button. When I plug it into the wall charger, the green light does not light up. When I plug it into the PC, there is no sign of it charging. I was told by a very nice member of the creative board to let it charge for at least 12 hours. I put it on charge around 12 this morning and it's still in the same state. I'm confused, if the battery is simply drained, how is the backlight able to stay lit? BTW, this was a question that I also asked on the creative board. Any help is GREATLY appreciated.
