Question about Creative Labs Zen Sleek Photo MP3 Player
My Zen wont turn on at all. It wont even charge! When I plug it in to charge, the power button wont illuminate!! It was never dropped or the victim of water/moisture damage. Is all hope lost or does anyone know of a way to help me? Unfortunately its out of warranty. Thanks.
It's probably too late for your nees but for future users, push a pin into the rest hole on the bottom of the player while AT THE SAME TIME holding down the play and power buttons. Yes, I know you need three hands to do this. That should bring up a recovery screen Try "Clean-up" on that screen.

Is the charger ok? If it wont start perhaps the battery's flat. If the light doesn't come on perhaps it's telling you that the charger's had it. Check for volts at the plug if you can. If you can't, try the charger in another Zen or get a friend with a multimeter to check that the charger is delivering volts.

Check 2 things.
1.) I have a zen sleek photo and ran into the same problem. It took me a long time to figure out what happened. Check the charger, specifically the part that plugs into the wall. You will notice that it is actually 2 pieces. If you jar it, it can come apart and will hardly be noticeable. If you push the 2 pieces back together, it should start working.
2.) Also check to make sure that the power cord is fully plugged in the adapter that plugs into the mp3 player.
My 2 cents on the unit, I wish I never bought it. Too many mechanical and software problems with it. Next time I will buy an apple. My fast forward button stopped working and my unit wont do a system disc scan, it just locks up.
