Question about Creative Labs Zen MicroPhoto MP3 Player

1 Answer

MP3 player will only turn on, wont play songs.

My Microphoto was working fine, and I docked it in the travel dock and a friend pulled it out without turning it off, when I put it back into the dock it played a few songs then froze. It will only turn on, if i plug it in to the comp, the comp doesnt recognize it. My husband did speak with a tech support person previously, but wasnt able to get the problem resolved. He did everything they asked us to do as far as rebooting and reformatting it's still not working. The tech support people are not very helpful when it comes to repairing or even sending back. I would like to fix rather than pay another 200.00 for another one. Please help.. thank you

If your Zen is dead, wont respond to anything, try this, plug it in to the computer, hold the power switch in the on position, THEN take the battery out and put back in, worked like a charm for mine, I had thought it a lost cause."

IPod not working in my music dock

Hi Natalie
Sounds like you're having logic board troubles. You need to take it to an ipod repair specialist to take a look at it. Sorry to bring the bad news. Chances are it's not a simple repair and will need a new logic board and they're not cheap:

If it's still less than a year old take it back to an apple store asap for a free replacement.

All the best

Ipod plays with no volume

If the sound isn't working from the headphones then normally it's just a new headphone/hold switch cable that's needed, but if it's not working from the docking bay either then you have a problem with your logic board.

Nano shows song playing but nothing happens

Make sure your headphones are working properly by testing with your computer headphone jack.

Is the headphone port on the Nano loose?

Connect the Nano to your iPod dock and see if you can head audio through the docks headphone jack.

If the headphones work, and you can get audio out of the dock headphone port, then there is a problem with your Nanos headphone jack.

NO DATA:but i have so many songs on there ?

Transfer songs to your player only with SonicStage. If you did with other software, format the player from the menu and transfer songs from SonicStage. Sonicstage can be downloaded here under SonicStage. Make sure you install the security update after installing the software...
