Cool Check the Battery, my friend.

I have tried unplugging the battery and plugging it in, but it is still as resolutely dead as before.

This could be a case of a dead battery. I have experienced this with a few iDevices and if you've examined, and cleared the player for possible physical damage then the only part I can think of that isn't up to scratch would be the battery. Devices with internal Li-ion and Li-Poly batteries degrade over time and lose their charge, and if it degrades completely usually bulges out. I suggest you look around for an OEM Battery just in case your friend upgraded the ZVM's Firmware.
