    the player freezes on the welcome screen when it says 'zen plus' and i've tried resetting it about 20 times and it will turn off then when i turn it back on it gets stuck again on the welcome screen.

    When I tried to use the reset button today, it felt like it broke through something. Now I'm wondering if the reset button is made of plastic and wears on each push of a pin.

    I'm having exactly the same problem.

    i have the same problem but it wasn't because the reset button wore out, I pressed it to hard and it came unstuck from the player.

If you are confident with electrical things, you could try what my dad did, he tooked the bottom half with the play/pause+return buttons on it off and managed to get the reset button out, it isn't made of plastic. Maybe it broke off like mine did. He is going to weld[?] it back on.
I wouldn't use a sharp pin either, just use a paper clip.

dolphin1515: Have you tried plugging it in to the computer? It normally turns on when you plug it in.
Another thing i have noticed, it always turns off when i am line-in recording. it is weird.

Look for posts or videos that talk about disconnecting the battery

Creative zen mp3 player has froze and where is the reset button

I have an older creative Nomad Jukebox Zen Extra, and the reset button on that is on the left side at the bottom. There is a very small hole for the reset, and you will have to stick a pin in it and hold it until the unit resets. I don't know if it's in the same place on your model, but it should still be located in a small hole somewhere on your player.
Hope this helps.

Go Saints!!!!

My Creative Zen is on, but the screen is off and there is no sound. I can't turn it off either.

  1. Look on the bottom of the device.
  2. There may be a reset hole in the case.
  3. Push a pin in to the hole and the device should reset.
  • Be sure you are not pushing the pin into the speaker or microphone hole. The reset on my Zen is on the bottom right, when looking at the screen.
  1. Turn it on again and all should be well.
I always carry a safety pin with me.

Creative zen froze

Try sticking a safety pin into the reset hole. It's tiny and it should be at the bottom I did this with my other creative when it froze and it worked.
