Default Zen Portable Media Center doesn't work

Hey guys and girls! I looking at buying a used Zen Portable Media Center (20gb) off ebay. It doesn't work though. Seller states that it powers on and gives fault #5. I'm wondering what exactly is the problem and how hard or how much would it cost to fix? They also states that the battery isn't much good. Should I get it or not? The bidding is at $10.50 now, reserve isn't met.

Thanks.

Took some serious digging, but I found some information - though I'm not sure it'll help you or not.

Error 5 indicates that "The device has encountered a problem that cannot be automatically fixed". Hard drive, maybe?

I think I'll pass on this one, probably fried.
