You could try another 5v charger in case yours is Duff

Red X Display That Won't Allow Reset or Getting Into Disk Mode

It sounds like your iPod may have a hard drive that has developed bad data blocks. When the iPod tries to play a song that has been written to a bad data block, it will then skip that song and move to another song.
You can find replacement drives at sites like ebay, or by searching Google. We also have them available for sale.
Hope this helps!

Screen not working on RCA M4002A

On the back of your player there is a reset button. I used the post of an earring and inserted it so it would reset. Mine works now. Try it! Good luck.

Zen V Plus locked up, will not shut off

After 3 1/2 hours, the battery went dead. I waited a couple of minutes, then plugged it into my computer to see if the battery would charge. It started charging. A few hours later I went back to check on it, and it showed a full battery. I disconnected it from my computer, and turned it on. It came on, but the screen just said "Low Battery". I then plugged it back into my computer, and the screen said "Rebuilding Library". I left it for about a 1/2 hour, and it was done. I unplugged it from my computer, turned it on, and it works now!! Hope this helps out everyone else who has the same problem.

Shows songs, but doesnt play them

Have you tried holding the select (center) and menu buttons together? This will completely reset your iPod to its factory settings, whereupon you can plug it into your computer and sync your songs back.

I'd recommend restoring the firmware to the latest version as well, even if you had the most current version installed, as this will usually aid with these kinds of software-induced problems.

Not rebuilding Library all the way

1. Press and hold the Play button while powering on your player.

2. 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.

Device keeps shutting off by itself and won't synch

Make sure the songs are in the right format. Napster is a real bear about disappearing songs - try another music svc.
