Re: Its dead & I have no music.

The battery is dead completely you either have to get a new battery or borrow one from someone, put the new battery in switch on the go gear plug in the chargerr then put your old battery back in (keeping the charger in and the go gear on) keep it on charge and it should be ok, i bought a job lot of em with the same fault all worked no problem after that

Creative zen won't turn on

I had a similar problem with my Zen Vision:M, whereby the computer just stopped recognizing my device. I found out it was because Windws has updated to Service Pack 3 automatically, and for some reason my player only works with SP2. It started working again when I installed SP2 again, but then I keep getting the annoying upgdate notifications from windows.

My zen's screen wont turn on

i'm assuming you pushed the reset button at the bottom already. does it seem like it is booting (does the hard drive spin, the head move?) if nothings moves or spins i'm assuming you have a defective logic board. there is a creative zen repair guide that shows you how to do that, the part is on ebay.

I think your ipod is dead. This happened to me to. I was listening to it when I arrived at my destination, and I thought I turned it off and I put it in my pocket. Later that day when I went to listen to it, it wouldn't turn on at all. Aparently, it had stayed on. Hold the pause button for five to ten seconds. The apple symbol will appear on your ipod. Immeadility put it in your docking station before it goes away. Your ipod will turn on, and itwill start charging.

I hope this helps. Please rate my solution.

Creative Zen Vision M - Dead Machine

unfortunately,the best solution is to send it back to creative for them to check it out. this sometimes happens when the player has been unused for too long and battery "under charges", which there is a solution.but seeing as u used it under normal conditions,that cant be the problem

Gets stuck at the loading screen, also a lack of battery life.

i had the same problem, try to reset it or, if you got rockbox built in try to turn it on and off, i don't know if you might have 2 sides to your mp3 player but try that out, and definitely buy a new battery, they sell it most likely at any electronic store...the wires should be plugged in inside and if not try to connect them inside: connect them as this red, black, and red if you do that it should solve your problem

Gogear became dead suddenly

Battery is too low for player to charge. There is a firmware fix for this at

Fix cannot be applied until player is working again.

If you know someone who has the same player, put their battery in your unit to power up and apply firmware update to fix problem. Then swap batteries back again

Another way to get the player working is to remove the side panel to disconnect battery. Plug in the mains charger and reconnect the battery. You may need to do this several times before the player springs into life.
If this doesn't work try disconnecting the charger and battery alternately and wait 5 secs between attempts.
