"Firmware Problem" on screen

Before turning it on, press and hold the play/pause button and turn it on simultaneously. A screen should come up with four options. Go to the one that says reload firmware and select it. Please note that doing this will erase all of the music and other stuff off of your player, so back it up. If after you reload firmware it and it still does not work, you can go here to get a new firmware update from this site which should make your player work:

Dark screen for my creative zen?

The previous poster is right; I do repairs on these all the time, and the most common problem is a cracked screen. The crack is on the back so you can't see it. The screen will need to be replaced.
