Question about Creative Labs Zen Nano Plus MP3 Player
The creative screen comes up, then the unit shuts down. i did the recovery mode, and it didn't do much, not sure if i updated the firmware, or if that's even the issue here. went through an 8 pack of batteries, all of which worked in other devices afterward, so that wasn't the problem. any suggestions?
When switching on the machine it indicate a red light with the word ‘system error E007’

I own two Nano Pluses that had this problem. After trying everything I am pretty sure have the solution!
It turns out that there are some very high value resistors associated with the battery measurement circuit. It doesn't take too much contamination to alter the resistor values and end sending the incorrect value to the A-to-D that measures the battery. Even though the screen indicator shows that all is well.
The fix is to take apart the Nano which is pretty easy because they almost fall apart after a year or so. The covers pull apart and just slide out the gold battery connectors. There are two boards-- the display board is actually plugged into the main board---pull them apart. With 99% alcohol (not rubbing alcohol) gently douse the boards and carefully clean them with a medium firm acid brush. Before the alcohol evaporates, use dust off to blown away the excess alcohol. That's it. I do this every few months, since I am pretty rough on them. Good luck.

There is a setting, I think, under Photo/video settings. VideoOut - set that to OFF or change it. The screen will stay on.
