Default Touchpad problems; unresponsive [Solved]

I dropped my Creative Zen MicroPhoto, and the touchpad became unresponsive. I can turn it on, transfer files and all that, but overall, I cannot play it.

I actually then tried to bang it around, but nothing would sense the touchpad. I ended up with the splash screen problem, and solved it with the Caveman method.

But the touch pad is still unresponsive, rendering the player un-playable.

As well, I can switch it on, Lock it, but that's it. I gotta rip out the battery to turn it off, or it idle switches off itself.

ANY SOLUTIONS!?!?!?

Hello BMNB1tch. Welcome.

I would start by opening up the ZMP and checking to make sure that the touchpad connector isn't just loose from the drop.

These should help:

BIG UPPS YOURSELF

That's exactly what it is was man. I had to re-plug the touchpad ribbon chip, after opening the thing.

Thanks for the help. And to think it was time to join the Apple I Pod cult.

ANYTHING BUT IPOD!
