    yep, exactly the same here - had my Zen V for just over 2 years and then one day the screen was dark with dark red text. I keep it well protected in a carry case but I assumed I'd somehow knocked it or something, but reading these other comments it sounds like this is a fault that just develops.

I have a Zen V plus , the screen has become really dark I can barley read it . what should I do?

Bad news. The Zen V Plus is known for screen problems - early warning signs include screen discoloration, lines on the screen or dimming. Eventually, the screen will go black.

Possible reasons include poorly-mounted screens, short life of OLED displays, and susceptibility of screens to damage from moisture.

Best bet for a replacement screen is buying a scrapped Zen V Plus on eBay. Here's a great guide to taking apart your Zen.

Dark screen on zen v plus

Was the device dropped or damanged? 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.

My Zen V Plus is really screwed up

Sounds like a similar problem I had today.

My Creative Zen V Plus wasn't recognised by my PC, then it wouldn't even switch on.

Following the solution of another similar problem on here I fixed it. Connect your Zen via USB to your computer and press the reset button. Should spring to life and start re-building your library. I am as I type adding new tracks to mine :))
