Re: My mp3 just stopped working, and wont even turn on..
This player is ruined by plugging it into a computer that runs either Windows Media Player 11 or Windows Vista. But, it was also manufactured in 2005, so the battery has been degrading over several years. Call Philips and see if you are still in-warranty - they don't have any more of these to give you, but they will exchange it for a newer model IF you saved your receipt.

mine is doing the same. i have a SanDisk 4GB mp3 video player & mines went dead too and it will show it charging for a few seconds then it will just stop & it will just show the connected sign. try holding the power button for 15 to 20 seconds. maybe that'll work
Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off,hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard.
If it still has power, or charges, plug in the mp3 player then turn it on, then turn it off by holding the power button, once it is off, switch the hold on then press and hold the REC button until a black screen turns on saying that it is connected, your PC should then recognize the mp3 player as 16mb removable device, now open notepad, DO NOT WRITE ANYTHING on the notepad and save it as format.fmt and save it into the mp3 player and then safely remove it, the mp3 player should format. If the above does not work please reply with what you see inside the 16mb drive.
Zen V is dead "If your Zen V is dead, wont respond to anything, try this, plug it in to the computer, hold the power switch in the on position, THEN trigger the reset button, worked like a charm for mine, I had thought it a lost cause."
