If there is a reset button you will need a pin it should be in a small hole.

Zen won't reset


Connect to a PC and check if this is detected, if not there is fault within the memory and if the reset does not work it will require attention from creative labs. If under warranty you will get replacement or free repair.

How to break volume restriction password ZEN XFI 2 ?


Boot the ZVM into Recovery Mode and select Cleanup from the menu. This will reset any user defined settings, including the passwords.
To boot the player into Recovery Mode, do the following:
  1. Insert a paperclip, earring stud, or other slender, unbreakable item into the reset hole located at the bottom of the player to press the reset button inside. You should feel a "click" when you've pressed the button. Press and hold the reset button.
  2. While holding the reset button, slide the power switch toward the power icon and hold it there. Let go of the reset button.
  3. When the Zen bootscreen appears, release the power switch.

The screen froze and keypad just wouldn't work. How to restore it?


1 Turn off your player.


2 Press and hold the Play/Pause.Continue to hold the Play/Pause button until you perform Steps 3 and 4.If you accidentally release the button, start the procedure again.


3 Gently push the end of a thin object (like a pin or straightened paperclip) into the Reset hole. The reset button for the ZEN Mozaic is located on the left side of the player, with the menu buttons facing you.


4 Slide the On/Off/Lock switch towards the power button and hold until the display lights up. The Recovery Mode screen appears, and four menu items are shown: Clean Up, Format All, Reload Firmware and Reboot.

From here you should be able to choose to reload the firmware.

Hi there Louisands,

You can do a reset on the Zen by using a paperclip or any pointed object and gently push and hold the reset button which is located in the left bottom side of the Zen.

Hope this helps.

Creative zen mp3 player has froze and where is the reset button


I have an older creative Nomad Jukebox Zen Extra, and the reset button on that is on the left side at the bottom. There is a very small hole for the reset, and you will have to stick a pin in it and hold it until the unit resets. I don't know if it's in the same place on your model, but it should still be located in a small hole somewhere on your player.
Hope this helps.

Go Saints!!!!

I'll begin by saying that this is an 8GB Creative Zen MX, and NOT a 16GB, but I believe the solution may be the same. My zen will not turn on, or connect to my computer. This happened just yesterday...


Hi.
just pressing the reset button is not enough.


Try this:


1. To reset the player, gently insert a thin object into the Reset hole located below the power switch.

2. Press and hold the Play/Pause button while powering on your player.

3. When the player displays the Creative logo, release the Play button.



Depending on the model you can also use following procedure:
1. Remove the battery.

2. Move and hold the Power button to the Power On position and re-insert the battery to the Zen Vision. Hold the Power button until the Recovery Mode appears.

How can i turn on my zen


The reset button cap on the lower left side of the unit may be jammed, causing the reset switch it activates to be come stuck.

This will put the unit into a loop in which it continually restarts.

You'll never see any sign of life if this occurs.

Be sure you see the "RESET" stencil or that may not be the reset button.

I've seen people poke paper clips their devices' microphone or speaker openings!

Be very careful when pushing the reset so that the button cap goes straight down.

If yours is stuck, unstick it, then it should come on if the battery is charged.

Then be sure to give it a FULL charge before using it, because while the button was stuck, power was being consumed.

Be sure to remove the rubber boot / skin before trying to reset the unit.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.
