Thank you for much for replying. By bricked, I mean that it is unable to power on at all after I pressed the reset button. Beforehand, everything else about the player was functioning as normal aside from the RTC. For example, I plugged it in to my PC and it would still charge, songs and video would still play, etc.
Now after pressing the reset button, nothing functions, it would not even power on or have my PC detect any external device.
I also do not receive any response after plugging it into my PC and holding the user button and then pressing the reset button, and releasing them accordingly.
