Re: problem wen i pressed reset button

· 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.

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?

Problem with IPod Nano Model A1137

Have you already reset the iPod? (Toggle the Hold switch on and off. (Slide it to Hold, then turn it off again.) Press and hold the Menu and Center (Select) buttons simultaneously until the Apple logo appears, about 6 to 8 seconds. You may need to repeat this step. Tip: If you are having difficulty resetting your iPod, set it on a flat surface. Make sure the finger pressing the Select button is not touching any part of the click wheel. Also make sure that you are pressing the Menu button toward the outside of the click wheel, and not near the center.)
If this failed I would suggest going to:
and view the free video's about resolving this kind of issue. If after that the issue is still not resolved, Please do let me know. :)

My mp3 player is frozen and wont unfreeze My Zen Creative MP3 player froze on me, it just keeps showing the shutting down screen and won't do anything else. I had previously dropped it outside and found...

Try pressing the reset button on the side. If it starts up go in to the utilities menu and reset it. That may fix it, or you may need to reload the firmware. You can get the firmware from the Creative support pages.

Zune Light won't come on

All else fails try resetting device to default settings and reloading everything...

Try this....
Reset Zune: Press and hold the back button while pressing up on the control pad.
Connect Zune to a power source: If the Zune device is in sleep mode, this action will wake the Zune device and turn it on. If the battery does not have a charge, you may have to wait several minutes for the Zune device to turn on.

Also, make sure that the hold button on top of your zune is turned to the off position.

Hope this helps!

Yp-k3 samsung Mp3 Screen Froze On "Remove Cable"

My daughter had a similar problem - she was frozen at the power off screen. On closer inspection, at the bottom of the K3 on the back of the unit is a reset button (you will need a pin or paper clip to reset it). Pushed a pin in for a few seconds, reset, all was OK.

Docked prooblem

Plug it in and start charging it. Once it has a decent charge if you ever have that problem again... (see below)

Using the instructions below try Reset, first, if that doesn't fix it try the Cleanup method, if that doesn't work... (if you have a backup of all your music on your computer), try the format option

This is from Creative's website:
Zen V Plus and Zen V
  1. Detach your player from the PC if it is connected, and turn off the player.
If the player stops responding, you can reset the player. To reset the player, gently
insert a thin object into the Reset hole located below the power switch.
2. Press and hold the Play button while powering on your player.
3. When the player displays the Creative logo, release the Play button.

It will display the following options:
Clean Up
Scans the player and removes invalid links from its music library.
Does not affect music files themselves.
Format (All) Caution! Erases all content!
Save a copy of your player's content before formatting.
Reload OS/ Firmware Caution! Erases your player's firmware.
DO NOT select the Reload Firmware option unless you have access to a PC and you have downloaded the necessary firmware to install.
Reboot Reboots the device.

Touble shooter

to run recovery mode is done by 1. Enabling the Hold Switch on the device when it is showing red 2. Press the record button then press the Menu/Power Button then it will show welcome to recovery mode on the screen of the player. I want to ask are you receiving Load Main Image Failed Switch to Recovery mode? If so reloading the correct firmware for your device will resolve this issue. Take note that there are 3 models of the sansa E200 , the first one it the Version 1 while the second one is the Rhapsody Model the one that has a rhapsody channel on it and the latest one which is the Version 2 that supports audible and SDHC cards.
