Player is not responding cant shot off or on. when battery remuved it shots off

Player is not responding, I can't shot it off or turn on. when I remove the battery it shots off and when i put the battery back it go's on to show the CREATIVE logo and the back lights go on for 2 seconds but none of the control buttons work. it's like it is frozen. I was trying to reload part 2 of a audio book that was listening that was saying unable to play i reload the files and added it to the player then disconnect the player to see if it worked it did not. The player was saying the same thing i try to shut it down but, it would not. The light is on and won't go out. What can I do?

My creative Zen, 8GB MP3 player will not switch on. The computer will not detect it, but detected other external drives. I know the Zen's battery was fully charged before it faulted, but it will not even...

I think it's dead, You might want to do a hard reset on it or wait for the battery to drain. I had a color version of this and it was forever freezing. If removing and then reconnecting the battery does not help then it might have worse issues. If all else fails I can take a shot at repairing it, my e-mail is

I charge the mp3 player...then when i try to turn it on the battery is can this be fixed?

your battery is probably shot. this would have to be replaced. i ipod had the same problem, and the battery connection was reversed. that is most likely your problem. charging in this case would deplete the battery.

My 4gb zen creative mp3 player wont turn on

Your battery might be shot. It's a possibility, but if that is not the case then your player might have short circuted or something. but most likely case is that your battery is shot.

If it immediately dies when you unplug it, your battery has died. the reason that it turns on when you plug it in is that the USB delivers enough power to allow the player to turn on, but not sustain power after it has been unplugged. I would recommend going back to where you bought it (with the receipt) and telling them that you just bought the player and the battery is shot/won't hold a charge. Warranty should cover it because it is a manufacturer error, and not something you did.

How do I take it appart

Lately, they've been building disposable MP3 players. Mine has got a lithium/ polymer battery that "should" last for years. Once it's shot, the whole thing is shot- unless you run it off the charger. So much for portability.

Betwenn the headphone socker and the power switch is the lock control. I'm thinking maybe your player is just locked. Try moving the switch to the other setting.

Let me know how you get on!
