Press and hold the power button for @ 10 seconds. That should shut down your device. Then, after it shuts down, again press and hold the power button until it reboots.

Sansa e200 freeze problem

I had that problem a few times you just have to reset it. Hold down the power button for 15 seconds, maybe 20 but that should do it. Then it will reset its self and turn back on.

Not turning on

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."

This may be the mp3 player that is wired badly. However, you may taking the battery or disconnecting it from its power for 10-30 seconds. Also, power down the computer and wait for 10 seconds -30 depending on the amount of times the computer has been shut down for the week. Try downloading its driver so that the computer will recognize this hardware.

Creative Zen Vision 30G not Turning On

Alright guys, I think I've figured it out.

I got mine working again, and it's been down with the same problem since the 29th.

So I tried to do the "Hold power for 30 seconds while plugged into your computer" thing. Didn't do anything, but thing is, I didn't unplug it from my computer afterwards, I just went to bed, and when I woke up, my creative was working again.

This, coupled with Oddu's solution have pretty much made me positive that for the problem we are having (only a blinking blue LED when connected to the PC or when you hold the power button) is just caused by an over-dead battery.

Plug your Creative Zen: Vision M into your USB 2.0 port, and just leave it overnight, mine was plugged in about 7 hours, I reccomend leaving it in at least that long, if not longer if it's still not working.

The situation that lead to mine becoming this way, was my Creative froze, and I didn't have a mechanicle pencil with me to hit the small reset button on the bottom so I just let it stay powered on until the battery died. I guess that kind of completly dead battery screws it over.

For prevention in the future, I reccomend not letting your creative get down to 0% battery. Keep it charged.
