Default Zen Sleek Photo all froze up

My Zen Sleek Photo is frozen. It will not turn off or anything else. If I push the reset button it will reboot and sometimes show the volume bar or a menu, but I can't do anything with them. Any help is appreciated.

Are you sure you know how to get into Recovery Mode?

This is important; because, if you cannot get into Recovery Mode, then this is a sure sign of a bricked player. You could try a forced hard reset by going in and disconnecting the battery, but chances are, the player is bricked.

Welcome jnooney. Does your Zen ever show signs of life even after trying to power on after doing a reset?
