Player not working on Beginning slide

I adjusted my player settings to require users to click on the Next button to advance the slides rather than advancing to the next slide when the timeline was complete.  Now the first slide won't advance ...at all.  It doesn't advance when the timeline is finished OR when the user clicks Next.

I have tried looking at the Player settings but the advance arrow appears grayed out in the menu. I also tried redoing the slide and then deleting the "trouble" one, as the settings from Slide 2 onward appear to be fine. No matter what I do the Beginning slide will not advance.
