Default Zen V Plus 4Gb Froze while playing, will not turn on.

Hello everyone,
I have had a Zen V plus 4Gb for about 5 months now. Last night I had it charging, and it was at full battery this morning. Today I was listening to it and it was working fine, when suddenly it began to make static noise, I tried to pause it, and it didn't respond. I had it set so that the screen turns off after a few seconds, and when I began pressing buttons the screen did not come back on like it normaly would. The earphones kept making the static noise until I hit the toggle to go to next song. Then the device stopped responding at all. The blue lights are not flashing, when i plug it in my laptop doesn't even know it is there. the reset button did not work, and most troubling of all, I had it plugged in for like 10 minutes it was very very warm, nearly hot. I unplugged it for fear of an exposion or who knows what.

Does anyone have any idea how to help me?

Thanks so much,
Stephen Morrill

Hello stephen56. It sounds like an internal battery short or failure. Does it power on when plugged into AC power? I would consider replacing the battery. I believe the battery part number is:


EBay has a ton as well as this site. Here is a video on how to open the Zen V. Good luck!
