Default Blue light flickers

Just found my Zen W again and want to use it. I plugged it in with both USB to computer and USB to car charger, but the screen doesn't go on and the blue light flickers for about a minute then shuts off.

I would guess it was the battery, but I tried running it without the battery hooked up and the screen would not power on. I dont want to buy a battery only to learn that something else is wrong with it. What do you think it could be? It worked fine the last time I used it, about a year ago.

Thanks for any help you can give me.

Got frustrated trying to get a phone number for Creative. Just want to find out if it could only need a battery. I don't want to buy a new one if the unit is dead.

Did you try giving the battery some time to charge?

If it's been unused and not charged for a significant period of time, chances are there's not enough power to run the player -- even just off the charger. I've seen that before when the battery is depleted. Give it a couple of hours to charge and see if that doesn't help.
