Default Nomad Jukebox doesn't turn on

just got my original nomad jukebox out after about 4 years.

but it doesn't work - either with fully charged batteries or attached to the mains.

any ideas how to start it up or what the problem is?

Use the battery & wall charger .Try using the reset to power it on.

But the battery in the player & connect to the power cord. There is a small hole that says Reset. Push a straightened paperclip into the hole & it should come power up.

that didn't work... is it dead? If I take out the HD, will I be able to read off it if I connect it to a PC?

No only another player like it can read it. Does it show that the battery is charging?

Update - I left it plugged into the charger all day and I just checked it - it is warm, so I think the charger is working and some electric is going into it. I also plugged in my headphones - when I press the play button I get a "clicking" sound - so there is some life there - but nothing on the screen... I'd really like to get this player going again as I've got some nice MP3s on there.
