Default blue LED blinking, black screen, no kind of reactions

Hi all,

I recently got the trouble which often aroused in comments to article about disassembling Vision M (but no suggestions on treating it were made). In short, the thing wouldn't start up, when I connect it to USB port of my mac the only thing that happens is the blue LED inside starts blinking once in 2 seconds. It was dying for quite a while, with many bugs, sudden playback and volume changes, switching to radio, making noise in headphones... Then once it hung up, LED lit blue, the battery died and that was it.
I found a broken contact inside. The player I guess was refurbished so I got a custom part in it - something that looks like thin insulated sheet of copper instead of foam between main board and hard drive. It was soldered in 2 places to the main board, one of those contacts was broken. I soldered it again, it didn't help.
So, I wonder what this blinking means and would appreciate any suggestions on how to bring my player back to life.
