Zen V Plus problems with brightness

I've had my zen v plus for about 6 months now, and a couple of weeks ago it just stopped working. i continued to try and charge it tho, because i was still hopeful. one day it turned on and started charging. but. the brightness of the screen, even tho it is set to 100%, is very very low and i cant read anything unless there is absolutley no outside light. ive tried resetting it but it didnt help. does anyone know what to do?

    I am having the same brightness problems... downloaded new firmware, but did not help. Are you still having this problem?

    A few days after I left my zen in my car overnight in cold weather the screen got very dull and i can only really read the screen at night or in the dark, even though the contrast is at 100%. I would'nt be suprized if it was the cold that messed it up, but im hoping there's a way to fix it. I tried upgrading the firmware and it did nothing.

Have you tried updating the firmware of your Zen V Plus? I've had mine for almost an year and haven't had these issues -- I updated the firmware as soon as I unpacked it.

try downloading the
MP3 player recovery tool from Creative's website (the tool contains the latest firmware update available -- 1.15.03). Plug your ZV+ into your PC, run the program and let it update the firmware. Then format, reload your music and try it.

By the way, before updating the firmware, let the battery have a full charge, ok

I`ve had the same problem twice, it seems the player erases the whole firmware when this happens. You can fix this by plugging it to your computer in recovery mode, this will allow you to reinstall firmware.(Search google for zen nano plus recovery mode to find instructions.)

Creative Zen V Plus stops reading


· Make sure you have media player 11
· If you can, the best test is to try your player with another PC, to see if you still have the problem. This localises whether the problem is with the PC (most likely the USB) or the player. See the link below (search on "connection problems") for a lot more troubleshooting on this.
· Download recovery tool off creative's website.

Creative Vplus hangs while charging


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."
