    I haven't used it for a while and also, it seems to be charging , but nothing.
    I tried to reset it, did not work.
    The PC does not recognize the device so i can't be sure that is a firmware issue.

My zen vision m 30 gig only comes on when plugged into the mains


If the recharageable battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be worn out.Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles andwill lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% andgradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up at all. OR Thebattery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected the batterydrops off to zero capacity in a very short time. If the battery drops to anunacceptable charge level then the battery needs to be replaced.

Hi, my ZEN vision m: does not start anymore; when charging the blue light just "flickers", but even after 1 night charging, no possibility to get to the menu


Hi,
The rapid-blinking blue light means that the Zen's battery is too drained to allow the player to turn on.

It can take 24 hours or more to completely recharge the Zen using USB. If you see the blue light blinking slowly when you plug it in, then the player is charging, and you will have to wait for it to finish charging.

If, after leaving the Zen to charge for more than a day, it still does not turn on, then the battery may be defective and not able to be charged anymore. The battery will have to be replaced.

I have a Zen Vision M 30G when i plug it in i get a malfunction error and the USB does not recognize it, It does however charge and everything works properly on the Zen


was their any software that came with the device to download. If you have it plugged in to a receivers usb port, check with the receivers ability to read the device, some only handle up to 2Gs. If plugged into usb on computer your device should aquire software to make it recognizable.

Creative zen m series no charge


i was trying to charge my zen on a cpu at work that did NOT have the zen installation disc installed on it. the lightning bolt over my battery sign indicated my zen should have been charging, however it did not. later that night i plugged my zen into my own laptop at home, the one that i installed my zen to in the first place, and it worked fine.

Creative Zen Vision 30G not Turning On


Alright guys, I think I've figured it out.

I got mine working again, and it's been down with the same problem since the 29th.

So I tried to do the "Hold power for 30 seconds while plugged into your computer" thing. Didn't do anything, but thing is, I didn't unplug it from my computer afterwards, I just went to bed, and when I woke up, my creative was working again.

This, coupled with Oddu's solution have pretty much made me positive that for the problem we are having (only a blinking blue LED when connected to the PC or when you hold the power button) is just caused by an over-dead battery.

Plug your Creative Zen: Vision M into your USB 2.0 port, and just leave it overnight, mine was plugged in about 7 hours, I reccomend leaving it in at least that long, if not longer if it's still not working.

The situation that lead to mine becoming this way, was my Creative froze, and I didn't have a mechanicle pencil with me to hit the small reset button on the bottom so I just let it stay powered on until the battery died. I guess that kind of completly dead battery screws it over.

For prevention in the future, I reccomend not letting your creative get down to 0% battery. Keep it charged.

Zen v plus


Try a different USB cord if you have one and plug it in to a desktop computer (not a laptop). Leave it plugged in for a while and the battery might be charged enough to display the screen (happened to me on my zen vision M and this fixed it)

Creative not charging


there seems to be a problem with the batteries for the Zen. I have just sent mine in for warranty work as it will work if you have it plugged into an AC adapter but it won't work as soon as it's unplugged even after charging all night. The USB will not charge it either. Creative has sent a replacement unit, but there is a serious problem with the battery.
