    The OLED screen on my 8GB Creative Zen V Plus stopped working slowly after about a year. The screen developed lines through the display, then the brightness faded til it was too dark to make out anything at all. It still plays but the screen is not readable so selection is haphazard. I tried letting it sit for a couple of months, but the display is still not working.

I had the same issue with my older Zen Xtra 30GB. I contacted Creative and they wanted 125 USD to repair it, but I had only had it about a year, and I paid 200 USD for it. The warranty on Creative products is only 90 days. I love their stuff but their support and repair policy is horrible. I shut it off and left it alone for a couple weeks, and the display started working again. It developed a charging issue though and even after replacing the battery it never worked right again. Try leaving it turned off for a few days or so. If it doesn't cone back, I would suggest looking into a new player. They are not worth fixing at the price Creative wants. iPod nano 8GB players are down to 169 dollars now, and as they are the standard now, there are more accessories available for them. The warranty is also a LOT longer.

I switched and I could not be happier.

Cheers

No display


Hi
i think that a good firmware update would repair the problem

Make sure it's the good model and download the latest firmware
download it
connect your mp3 player and run the firmware updater
that should reset your mp3 player without erasing your song and display should be ok
Good luck

Zen mosaic works fine but screen does not


Go in to Settings, Display Settings and turn up the brightness. Also consider using a lighter theme (also in Display Settings), or uploading a bright picture of your own and then setting that as wallpaper.
