Zen V not charging, battery all out

My Zen V's battery ran out yesterday while I was listening to it. This is the first time i've let it go so long without a charge. Now, when I hook it up to the computer to recharge it, the green lightning bolt symbol flashes in the abttery corner, but it remains on zero charge.
I took it off the charger earlier today and it was fully charged. When I turned it on to listen to it later, it was dead. Now it won't charge. What do I do?

Try resetting the device and charging it again. You may have to charge it for a few hours though.

My zen V battery also run out. It is imposible to recharge it. When I connect it to pc to recharge, it recharges for a few minutes and then stops. I always have to press reset button to restart charging. What happened to it?

I'll begin by saying that this is an 8GB Creative Zen MX, and NOT a 16GB, but I believe the solution may be the same. My zen will not turn on, or connect to my computer. This happened just yesterday...


Hi.
just pressing the reset button is not enough.


Try this:


1. To reset the player, gently insert a thin object into the Reset hole located below the power switch.

2. Press and hold the Play/Pause button while powering on your player.

3. When the player displays the Creative logo, release the Play button.



Depending on the model you can also use following procedure:
1. Remove the battery.

2. Move and hold the Power button to the Power On position and re-insert the battery to the Zen Vision. Hold the Power button until the Recovery Mode appears.

Zen m wont turn on


Well, it needs to charge via USB on your computer, so plug in your zen into the computer with the creative usb cord, and let it recharge. It may not necessarily turn on if it's really out of battery, but you can tell its charging when the switch you use to turn on and off, and hold, the light is blinking. After sometime, your Zen screen on the upper righthand corner should show a little battery and be blinking green what stage it's at in its charging. When its done charging the battery icon with be fully green, not blinking, and have a little plug icon inside of the battery icon to indicate that it is fully charged--takes a couple of hours to charge.

If that does not work, check your USB cord to make sure it's not damaged in any way. If it is, you may need to purchase a new one for better connection. And if that doesn't work, then you might need to replace the battery altogether, which I'm sure, if you are still in your manufactuer's warranty, they can do for you. After it is replaced, your zen should be good as new and ready to operate.

Hope this helps. Good luck!

im confused what version of zen you have.

For a Zen, all you have to do is boot into Recovery Mode, select "Reload Firmware", download the US firmware version, and install it.

Frozen/won't turn on??!!!


Apologies if this answer is offensively obvious. Try putting a paperclip or equally small object into the little reset hole at the bottom of the player if you haven't done so already. Mine froze a couple of times and it always worked.
