Re: creative zen v plus 4GB
Zen V is dead "If your Zen V is dead, wont respond to anything, try this, plug it in to the computer, hold the power switch in the on position, THEN trigger the reset button, worked like a charm for mine, I had thought it a lost cause."

johnledon1, You can compare this the 45 and 60 degree listening positions for surround sound but it means just what you said, 20 degrees for a narrow field and 40 for a wider field. Just remember to listen to what your ears are thinking and not others are telling you as your ears cannot be wrong to you.
45 Degrees: The speakers are half the distance apart from each other as they are from the listening position; i.e-10 ft apart but 20 ft away.
60 Degrees: The speakers are the same distance apart from each other as they are from the listening position; 10 ft apart but 10 ft away.
In surround sound, the higher the budget film, the higher field degree is optimum but never more than 60 degrees where you can easily go down to about 25 degrees.
For music most people like a narrower field unless you like groups like Pink Floyd where sometimes they will sound better in a wider field.
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.
I'm just a guest, but my Zen has done that before. I actually had to leave it plugged to my computer for awhile (I'd like to say well over a week or two), and when I unplugged it and tried turning it on again, it turned on, but the battery was nearly dead. This has happened more than once to me, and it simply began working again after I left it sitting there for a long time. It seems that, when it blanks out like this, something is going wrong with the battery. Mine always seems dead when it finally works again. I know that's not much help, but just leaving it there worked for me. Good luck.
Sounds like its dead. Which could just mean the motherboard is shot and needs to be replaced. Hard to tell when it doesn't respond at all. You'll need to either take it apart and replace the motherboard, or send it to a technician who can.
There is a chance though that the zen is too far gone to fix. 50% of the time, when a zen won't even power on when connected to a power source, its too far gone to fix.
