Question about Creative Labs ZEN Vision:M Digital Media Player

1 Answer

Charging I had a problem today when i went to plug my creative zen vission M in today to charge and nothing would happen. I would only get a flashing blue light at the top and a complete black screen. So i figured i would leave it for a while and come back. I did this and found the same problem happening, so I held the on button for a while and it turned on, problem fixed. but now while it says that it is charging with the lightning bolt over the battery symbol, it still doesnt charge. it has been like this for over a couple hours and i see no progress in the battery level power that it shows. how can i fix this charging problem?

Won't turn on


I had a similar problem with my Creative Zen V+ (8Mb) when the battery went. What worked for me might work for you:

- Plug it in and leave it on charge for a couple of days.
- Reset
- Power on.

The key thing seemed to be to get power in before trying to get it up and running.


I have used this tactic the other way around when it froze - leave it to power down for a couple of days, then recharge, then reset and power up.

So far, the Zen V+ has proved extremely resilient!

If you have windows set to do automatic updates, you most likely had a windows update installed that caused this conflict with Win Media Player 11. No fix has been posted by Microsoft yet, so the only workaround is to Uninstall/Rollback Windows Media Player 11. Goto <Control Panel<Add/Remove Programs and remove Windows Media Player 11. Follow prompts, restart computer when prompted to. Also uninstall Windows Media Player 11 Runtime application following same procedure above.
This will roll your Windows Media Player back to version 10 or 9, whichever you had installed prior to version 11. You will need to re-configure Windows Media Player again.

Your Zen should now be recognized by WMP and Creative software. You probably need to upgrade your firmware at this point, follow the instructions on upgrading your firmware, and you should be good to go.

This is a windows problem, not a creative problem. Dont blame Creative for the screwed up hotfixes that Microsoft puts out on a regular basi

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.

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

5 flashing blue lights...?


Sounds like your rechargable battery is done for. You can get a new one at newzenbattery.com and open your player yourself extremely easily by just watching a video or reading how to do it. No damage is done or anything and this seems like an easy fix.

"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."

Wont turn on


Keep charging it, that's what happens at the initial charge stage. It will take maybe 24 hours to charge and then will turn on fine.
