    I have a mpc70x5, 1g player...battery has fresh charge...at power on the screen lights up and i can see menue and battery condition...then screen goes dark....holding down on touch control panel makes screen light up faintly and flicker....can not access anything, only the menue is shown.

    tried the reset thing with a pin....no help.

    is there something i could try?

    thank you...

    I've taken many devices apart and soldered in new batteries. I don't listen to folks that tell me that "it's unfixable". :D

    Could well be the battery, I'd take it apart and see if there's anything physically wrong that might explain it. If not, you can try to find a compatible battery, I'd had good luck finding all sorts of odd-ball batteries on the Internet for equipment.
