Thumbs down [Q] HELP: bricked Galaxy Player 4.2

I've been trying to get a custom ROM on my Samsung Galaxy Player 4.2 for hours today and seemed to have bricked the device.

After unsuccessfully attempting to install both the 10.1 and 10.2 cyanogen mods per the following instructions:

http://theunlockr.com/2013/06/22/how...xy-player-4-2/

, I attempted to install a custom ROM using these directions:

Unfortunately, when I tried to revert the device to stock Android 2.3, I kept getting the error Complete(Write) operation failed.

Now when I try to turn on the device, it forever stays on the Samsung logo and I'm unable to do anything.

How can I fix this? Thanks in advance for your help!

You have tried to flash ROMs that are not meant for your device... You need to flash back to stock.
Regarding your error:
-Have you installed the drivers or KIES?
-Did you ensure that your device was in download mode when you connected it to your pc?
-If you've done both of the above, have you checked if the COM:[your port no. here] appears on any part of the ODIN window in a blue background?

For future reference, there are no cm ROMs for the 4.2 and you should not try flashing any ROMs that are meant for other devices.
