My creative zen 4gb player,when switched on the screen appears to be white

If you need to reset your device everytime you turn it on, it might be a firmware problem or device problem. You may want to try reloading or upgrading the firmware of your player. However, there are risk when you perform the upgrade. It might not work completely if it is not properly done.

For specific firmware upgrade instructions, please refer to the firmware released posted at or follow the instructions on the screen.

Hope it helps!

The buttons stopped working

Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard.

when your mp3 player keeps turning of that means that there is no more juice in the battery and that it is time to go pick up a new battery, also if your mp3 player is not charged and it wont hold a charge you can try another USB cord!

My mp3 player is broen HELP ME!!!!!!!!!!

I`ve had the same problem twice, it seems the player erases the whole firmware when this happens. You can fix this by plugging it to your computer in recovery mode, this will allow you to reinstall firmware.(Search google for zen nano plus recovery mode to find instructions.)

Sounds like it may be the index in your Music Library. Try going into Recovery Mode; remove battery, hold power switch to ON, replace battery, release power switch when the Recovery Mode screen appears on the screen. Run Option 1 CleanUP, after it completes run Option 4 Restart. You will get a Rebuilding Library screen when it reboots, that's normal, then it should go back to your startup screen. Good luck and let us know what happened
