Question about Creative Labs Nomad Jukebox Zen Xtra MP3 Player
When I try to turn on my Zen 40g, it just flashes the 'Creative' screen. I figure the battery needs charging. So it is now plugged in to charge. It is still just flashing Creative on and off. I have taken the battery out to reset. Still just flashing. I have pushed the reset button while plugged in. Nothing. When I take it off the power cord, it does show low battery. So I plug it back in. Still just flashing.
Is there a sequence of things I should do or should I just leave it plugged in to direct power for awhile.
I'd hate to mess up a good thing. It has worked like a champ until now.
I've tried my Kodak digital camera 5v. power supply, and worked!
Thanks a bunch, brother!

This is an issue with the power supply, believe it or not. I just resolved this for a friend by changing the power supply. An old nokia 5v power supply will make a good alternative if you don't have an OEM replacement.

I think it may have something to do with battery + charger receptacle. I just took battery out and propped charger cord so it had pressure upwards towards face of player. It now will boot past the EAX screen and shows that it is running on AC power. I have put battery back in to see if it will charge.
If it does - then I need new battery.
If not.. then....toast?
