Question about Creative Labs ZEN Vision W Digital Media Player

Front buttons not working

The power and volume buttons work, but the front buttons no longer do anything. To the best of my knowledge it has not been dropped by anyone. If I press hard enough and jiggle them I can get the blue light to come back on behind the buttons and they'll work only while I hold my finger in that exact spot on the button. I'm guessing there must be a loose connection inside the unit. Not sure how to fix it, though.

Sound like loose connection as you have said. well opening the device will void your warranty so if you still had one i would go for the free repair instead. make sure to back everything up

Tv ws-65511 volume stuck


Did you ever get this problem fixed? Ours just started doing the same thing. It worked fine the night before, but today it's doing what yours is doing. The remote stopped working for the TV. The remote still works for the cable box, but volume and anything related to TV function not. The screen flashes when we try to adjust volume or anything else, but resets to previous volume. TV not responding to any commands either on the front panel or remote.
Any ideas? Thanks, Patti

The buttons on the front don't work.


Have you tried updating the firmware of your Zen V Plus? I've had mine for almost an year and haven't had these issues -- I updated the firmware as soon as I unpacked it.

try downloading the
MP3 player recovery tool from Creative's website (the tool contains the latest firmware update available -- 1.15.03). Plug your ZV+ into your PC, run the program and let it update the firmware. Then format, reload your music and try it.

By the way, before updating the firmware, let the battery have a full charge, ok?

RCA F31317 Model - Very strange problems


Sounds to me like there is an issue in the control circuit, and quite possibly the micro itself. If you have issue with both the remote and buttons I am thinking a microprocessor issue since they normally enter the micro at different locations and therefore would not have a single component cause a failure across both of them (Except the micro of course) Best option may be a service center.
