Default Zen V Plus 4GB dead, tried every fix I could find

I haven't even had the player very long, but I have no warranty or receipt so can't return it. It does nothing, however when plugged in it flashes blue at me. Sometimes it switches on, docks, flashes 'low battery', then goes into a reboot loop. details:

-It's plugged in at the back of my PC
-I've tried every usb port on 3 PCs
-None of the fixes in the sticky thread worked, it just randomly turns off after about 5 mins of being plugged in
-I've tried 2 cables
-I can't replace the battery because it is soldered straight onto the mainboard - no connector
-I've tried recovery tools, mediasource etc with no luck
-I managed to boot into recovery mode once then it froze
-Reset doesn't work
-I've tried putting a piece of paper between the battery and the mainboard in case it's a short circuit
-I can't see any burn marks on the mainboard
-there are a couple of faint dark lines on the screen at times
-I've tried it on Xbox USB ports
-It hasn't been dropped
-The charger slot doesn't look damaged

Once I got from XP 'The USB device at port 0 has malfunctioned, windows cannot identify this device'... I am completely out of ideas - I'm starting to think it's past repair. Any help would be appreciated! thanks.
