Default Is my Sansa Clip+ 2GB dead and if so what killed it?

I've used my Sansa Clip+ 2GB (Firmware 01.02.15) almost every day since I bought it a year ago. Last night I went for a 1 hour walk and my Sansa Clip+ worked properly. At night before I fell asleep I was using it and it suddenly stopped working, the screen went blank, and the device became unresponsive. I connected it to my wall USB charger and it showed no signs of life.

This morning I connected it to my PC and the screen went on but it doesn't look right: where I am supposed to see the track title all I see are 6 squares, a percentage sign, and then some strange symbol. The device is still unresponsive - only the screen is on, even after I disconnected it from my PC - and it's also worth noting that my PC did not detect the device's memory cards.

What I want to know is whether this thing reached the end of its natural life given the amount of use I have given it or whether the Bytecc USB charger which I bought at the mall a week ago for $5 likely contributed to its death.

Should I just forget about this thing and buy a new clip+ (or something newer and better) and never use the USB wall charger again?
