Creative Zen Vision M 30GB wont turn on

Problem could be the combination of a bug that causes the device to freeze and the battery running out. If...
- the player won't turn on
- the player won't connect to PC
- the standard reset action won't work,

plugging the player in the AC charger may pull up the recovery screen which will allow you to proceed and reboot, provided the player has no other eg hardware issues.

My PC can't seem to recognise my Creative Zen Vision M 30gb anymore. It has been working fine but today nothing doing. The display on the device says it is docking when I plug into PC but PC says it is not...

What you have to reset is the PC, not the Zen.

Try unplugging the PC AC cord for ten-fifteen minutes. This will drain power and get rid of electrostatic charges accumulating on USB connector contacts.

If that does not work, check USB status in device manager, and test the Zen with a different cable. Also test the unit on a different computer.

Won't turn on

I had a similar problem with my Creative Zen V+ (8Mb) when the battery went. What worked for me might work for you:

- Plug it in and leave it on charge for a couple of days.
- Reset
- Power on.

The key thing seemed to be to get power in before trying to get it up and running.

I have used this tactic the other way around when it froze - leave it to power down for a couple of days, then recharge, then reset and power up.

So far, the Zen V+ has proved extremely resilient!

My creative zen v pluse dosent even turn on or charg or .....

I had a similar problem with a Zen Xtra 30GB. I found that if I hooked up the charger to it and then plugged and unplugged it in to the wall socket several times (not from the player end of the charger) it shocked it back into charging again. It worked for me and a couple other people.

It's a 50-50 shot. It will either work or not.

It won't turn on cuz the battery is 100% dead and there is no power from the charger for whatever reason.

My screens backlight wont stop flickering

Not really, the screen flickering is due to a faulty circuit inside of the Mp3 player. If you have another one, you might be able to swap out the screen circuits, adn fix it, but this is very difficult.

My 30gb creative zen froze and after being reset all of my songs are gone excpet a handful.

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."
