Default Touch Pad not working.

Ive had this trusty little device for over four years now. And what a tragic end it was when I forgot to take it out of my trousers when they went in the wash. I let it dry out for a couple days and was amazed to find it turned on. However, as the title suggests, the touchpad is now unresponsive

I tried updating its firmwire to see if it was just a coincidental software issue. So Im now at a loss as to what to do? I really don't want to give up now after all these years so any help would be greatly appreciated!

You can look into learning how to take it apart. Look on eBay for "parts" players.

Or you can buy a Sansa Clip or Clip+ or Fuze. They're not very expensive and when set to MSC mode they work just like a Z5. At least that's my experience. Except the Sansas turn on a lot faster than a Z5.

There are some other choices like the Sony Walkman E44x series.
