Nothing.....not even music and blank screen, nothing. It worked last night on way home and this morning was dead. It had a good charge in it and was not dropped or bumped. Wasn't left on overnight either....I can return it easily but want to make sure there is nothing obvious I've missed.
Take your zen micro find a small shart object, open the back case and remove the battery, you will see a white label on a silver case now whilest it is off with the battery out plug the charger in and hold the on button for 10 seconds then get a hammer and smash the living **** out of the shittest MP3 player ever then relax and enjoy what you have created with your creative, atleast they got the name right!

Well, i didn't charge mine over night, was listening to it in the evening while doing some chores and all of a sudden it stopped playing, Blank screen and permanent Blue light. I tried to turn if off but it didn't respond so i left it. In the morning, it went off itself (guess the battery was low). So i connected to the computer and inserted the ZEN CD. As i was exploring the CD looking for a solution, then all of a sudden the screen came up with a note "Rebuilding..." after 5 secs it came on. With all my files intact!
I hope this wud be helpful, You could give it a shot, after all there's nothing to loose!
had same prob to the T...found this post and it fixed it...it's the computer not the zen...once I did the two steps my zen started charging and turned on...go figure...the flashing blue light doesn't mean it is charging. posted on Feb 25, 2009
you have windows set to do automatic updates, you most likely had a
windows update installed that caused this conflict with Win Media
Player 11. No fix has been posted by Microsoft yet, so the only
workaround is to Uninstall/Rollback Windows Media Player 11. Goto
<Control Panel<Add/Remove Programs and remove Windows Media
Player 11. Follow prompts, restart computer when prompted to. Also
uninstall Windows Media Player 11 Runtime application following same
This will roll your Windows Media Player back to version 10 or 9,
whichever you had installed prior to version 11. You will need to
re-configure Windows Media Player again.
Your Zen should now be recognized by WMP and Creative software. You
probably need to upgrade your firmware at this point, follow the
instructions on upgrading your firmware, and you should be good to go.
This is a windows problem, not a creative problem. Dont blame Creative
for the screwed up hotfixes that Microsoft puts out on a regular basi
I had the same problem and before returning it I tried reseting the player (to press the reset button you have to put a needle or something similar in a small hole on the bottom right of the zen). Now it works again as if nothing ever happened!
Mine got wet about a week ago - see my original response.. The screen was just flickering and I could see condensation on the screen. I kept hoping it would dry out, but days went by with no change. Yesterday I finally put it on the dash of my car and let it sit in the sun all day. When I came out of work that evening, the Zen seemed completely dead - and HOT! I let it cool down and plugged it into the charger - still nothing. But this morning -YAY! It is completely functional again!
If your Zen V is dead, wont respond to anything, try this, plug it in to the computer, hold the power switch in the on position, THEN trigger the reset button, worked like a charm for mine, I had thought it a lost cause." Q. How to reset Zen v + http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=22T_gkkZjmM&feature=related good luck

I have the same problem .. But i found a trick ...When you have a blank screen. 1 you must listen music else press play until you listen it 2. flip the switch on the side to lock position 3. press on buttom the next tune 1-2 seconds 4. you will have a black screen ( you listen the music again) 5. flip the switch on the side to normal position. 6 the screen appear ok now..
7. else repeat ( most time once is ok but sometimes 2 or 3 times)
Zen V is dead "If your Zen V is dead, wont respond to anything, try this, plug it in to the computer, hold the power switch in the on position, THEN trigger the reset button, worked like a charm for mine, I had thought it a lost cause."
