SOURCE: zen stone mp3 player not switching on

I had given up on my Zen ever working again. I had tried the reset button numerous times to no avail and all I had was flashing blue lights on the lower right, nothing seemed to be working. After reading this suggestion I tried holding in the "volume+" button while the player was hooked up to AC current and charging and at the same time pushing down the start button - suddenly I was back in business, the Zen screen lit up and said it was rebuilding library. I had all but given up! Thanks for help, I will NEVER again fast forward.

My Creative Zen Plus 2GB stopped working. When I tried to turn it on the screen would start and then give up during startup. Computers would not recognize it as the stone but would come up with a drive, which I couldn't open. If this is happening to you see below:

If you are getting a drive coming up when you plug it in (but not named "stone" or whatever you called it then try opening it.

If it says it needs formatting then this may help.

Right click on the drive and choose to format. When the format program comes up it should have the incorrect file system selected. Something beginning with N? Anyway don't format it in this type.

Select FAT as the file system and press start.

Check to see if your player is working now.

If not then try to run the recovery tool which you can download from here. Once installed, run the recovery tool.

This is how I sorted mine out and it's working fine now. Hope this helps somebody because I couldn't get an answer from anybody else.

PS I lost about 7-8 hours worth of work on this B*****d and missed a deadline because of it :(

User Guide:

My player is not responding, what do I do?
If your player stops responding, reset the player. This should not cause you to lose any data or audio tracks, unless you were in the middle of transferring files.

  1. Insert and remove a straightened paperclip from the Reset Hole.
  2. If this does not work, proceed to Formatting Your Player.
Formatting Your Player
WARNING: This step deletes all your player's content. If possible, back up all your player's content on your computer before proceeding.
  1. Make sure your player is connected to your computer and you are logged on in Administrator mode. For details about Administrator mode, see your operating system's documentation.
  2. In Windows Explorer, right-click your player and select Format.
  3. If this does not work, proceed to Reloading Your Player's Firmware in Recovery Mode.
Reloading Your Player's Firmware in Recovery Mode
(Not applicable for 1 GB and 2 GB player models without speaker)

  1. Download the latest firmware before proceeding.
  2. Disconnect your player from the computer, and then turn off your player.
  3. Press and hold the Volume Down button. Continue to hold the button until you have performed Steps 4 to 6.
    If you accidentally release the button, start the procedure again.
  4. Press and hold the Power/Play/Pause button.
  5. Connect your player to your computer's USB port.
  6. After 5 seconds, release both buttons.
    Your player will be recognized as a USB Mass Storage Device.
  7. Double-click the firmware file you downloaded earlier, and follow the instructions on the screen.
Why does formatting my player in Windows Vista take a long time?
Windows Vista formats devices differently from earlier versions of Windows. As such, your player may take a significantly longer time to perform a full format. Rest assured that once formatted, your player will perform as expected. To format your player in considerably less time, use the Quick Format option instead

Sounds like you lamp ballast has gone bad. I good way to verify this is, when you press power on the projector look inside the lens. If you see a small amount of light, then the ballast is good, and the lamp is bad. If there is no light then chances are the ballast is bad.
