If you need to reset your device everytime you turn it on, it might be a firmware problem or device problem. You may want to try reloading or upgrading the firmware of your player. However, there are risk when you perform the upgrade. It might not work completely if it is not properly done.

For specific firmware upgrade instructions, please refer to the firmware released posted at http://creative.com/products/mp3 or follow the instructions on the screen.

Hope it helps!

Tip

Creative Zen V Plus , 4GB


Heres a few tips to prolong the very short life of the Zen V Plus 4GB.

- Do not leave it in your docking station for long periods of time , this only wears down the battery and will most certainly kill it. This apply's to any form of vigorous charging.
- Don't think its crashed , always check that the lock button is off.
- Always remember the reset button on the side , its a better option than smashing it against a wall , like I'm about to with mine.
- Always install the correct Zen Software , instead of installing music and pictures directly into the folder when you syncronize it with your computer.

Here is my greatest tip of all ;

Don't buy one , save up , get an ipod , Zen's hate people, and now people hate Zen's

I had the same problem....ok here's what you do, make sure the ZEN is off first then switch it on my pushing the switch down (like usual).So switch it on and press the play/pause button at the same time. It may take a couple of tries but after you get it, the screen will say "Recovery Mode" at the top. Now go down to "Clean Up" and click it. It will then ask, "Disk cleanup will be performed. Continue?" Click yes. When it's done, turn off the ZEN and turn it back on. Does it work!? Ha I'm a 13 year old genius.

Only white screen appears while starting.


My Creative Zen 16Gb got to the stage where every time I turned it on I would get a white screen. I tried many so called solutions, including those on the Creative website - nothing really workd for any length of time. Eventually, suspecting is was a connection issue with the dispaly, I held the Zen in both hands and twisted the case a few times - nothing broke and my Zen has been working faultlessy for the last three days. Hope this helps.

White screen


I get the white screen of death as well from time to time and I found this video and it actually worked for me.
Hope you have the same problem as me and this should help out just do what he does:
When the screen goes white, let the music play, put it on hold, wait until the screen turns black then take it off hold and the screen should be back on hope this helps.

Zen screen stays white


The white screen of death is due to a hardware failure in the LCD screen and the only way to fix it is to replace the screen itself. You can find a screen and repair services at www.TheGadgetDr.com

My Creative Zen 4GB MP3 Player is just not turning On


I had the exact same issue and this is how i fixed it.
go to the zen website and download the latest drivers.

  1. Turn off your player.
  2. Disconnect your player from your computer.
  3. Press and hold the Play/Pause button. Continue to hold the button while you perform steps 4 and 5. If you accidentally release the button, start the procedure again.
  4. Gently push a straightened paper clip into the Reset hole.
  5. Slide the On/Off switch towards the USB port and hold until the display lights up. The Recovery Mode screen appears with four options: Clean Up, Format All, Reload Firmware, and Reboot.
  6. Select Reload Firmware, followed by Yes.
  7. Connect your player to your computer.
  8. Double-click the downloaded file and follow the instructions on the screen.
