I think there are brightness controls in the settings, I'm not too sure lol as my player isn't in the room with me. If there are brightness settings, make sure they're turned up and your backlight is not set to OFF. If the problem persists after this, you can get in touch with Creative an I think they offer a repair service if the product is not under guarantee anymore, but if it is under guarantee, enjoy a new player courtesy of the guys down at Creative. I hope this helps^^

Creative Labs Zen Sleek "how to install battery"

I also have that Zen Sleek.... you have to remove first the screen which sealed in a glue, then the keypad... from there you will have access to remove the top and bottom platings. You will need a precision tool of Philips Screwdriver to unscrew bottom and top platings.

Zen frozen on one screen even after I've restarted it.

hard drive sounds bad. has it been dropped?
try to do a cleanup
  1. Detach the Zen player from your PC , and ensure that the Zen Sleek is turned off.
2. Connect the power supply to the player.
3. Hold down the Play/Pause button while inserting a paper clip into the Reset hole
underneath your player, beside the data/power connector. Keep on holding the
Play/Pause button while you release the Reset button. The Rescue Mode screen will
then appear.
4. After the recovery mode has started, release the Play/Pause button

It will display the following options.
Clean Up Scans the player and removes invalid links from its music library.
Does not affect music files themselves.
Format (All) Caution! Erases all content!

Reload OS/ Firmware Caution! Erases your player's firmware.
