Hope you have the same problem as me and this should help out just do what he does:
When the screen goes white, let the music play, put it on hold, wait until the screen turns black then take it off hold and the screen should be back on hope this helps.

An internet search gave me this advice....there's a tiny pin hole on the side of the player that says "reset". Carefully insert a pin into it. This worked for me.

Only white screen appears while starting.


My Creative Zen 16Gb got to the stage where every time I turned it on I would get a white screen. I tried many so called solutions, including those on the Creative website - nothing really workd for any length of time. Eventually, suspecting is was a connection issue with the dispaly, I held the Zen in both hands and twisted the case a few times - nothing broke and my Zen has been working faultlessy for the last three days. Hope this helps.

Creative zen mp3 player's screen suddenly went black with lines.


Most likely the video chip inside has gone bad. Best bet would be to contact Creative via their support number. I wish you the best of luck.

White screen of death on my zen


I had the same problem with my Zen. I *downgraded* the firmware in mine to 1.03.04 and it seems to have fixed it. Per the Creative website, I first tried upgrading it to 1.20.02 and it only seemed to make it worse. I tried their recovery procedures to no avail.

You can download the downgrade here. It's and executable file, just have your Zen hooked up to your computer and execute it.

White screen and No recognition to my computer


It sounds like either an LCD screen failure or a motherboard failure. Have you tried the reset button yet? What happens? Does it reset?

Screen is white but music still plays


I have the same problem .. But i found a trick ...When you have a blank screen.
1 you must listen music else press play until you listen it
2. flip the switch on the side to lock position
3. press on buttom the next tune 1-2 seconds
4. you will have a black screen ( you listen the music again)
5. flip the switch on the side to normal position.
6 the screen appear ok now..

7. else repeat ( most time once is ok but sometimes 2 or 3 times)

Cant turn it on and PC cant read it...


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."
