Question about Creative Labs Zen Touch MP3 Player

Played turned on and text/numbers are dark red so almost unreadable!

I turned my player on this morning to find the text is very dark-red so almost unreadable, particularly in good light. It still works perfectly, any ideas??

Oh wow, I have never encountered this problem before. I think your screen may be bad, or there is a loose solder connection. You might need to resolder a connection, or get the screen replaced. If you don't feel comfortable taking it apart, you should take it to a technician who can do all the work for under $100.

Can I put lyrics onto my philips gogear mp3 player?

you can put any type of files on to the player and these will be stored like a pendrive. Unfortunately the text or lyrics will not be played by the item, only stored.

Swagger MP3 audio player does not hold a charge. I plugged it in overnight and could bearly play a song in the morning.

Most likely you have a full charge but the problem is FALSE Advertising! Swagger MP3 players only support MP3's downloaded from, any other MP3's will only play for a matter of seconds before shutting off. These players are a total rip off.

The screen is dim it is on the last song played it won't do anything won't turn off but won't play either, It worked fine this morning help please It is a sansa clip 2gb I've had it since Sept. 09

Sansa Clip won't turn off right? push up power button and hold it for 10 to 20 second, your device will turn off now.
After that, you should update your new firmware from sandisk forum, you should check Sansa Clip or Sansa Clip+ from the following web,
Good luck
