Press rec button, hold, press play button, no release them. Connect the unit to pc via USB. You would see the unit as a drive. THen disconnect the unit and turn it on. These steps would reset the mp3 player... Did it?

WHEN I TRY TURNIN IT ON IT JUST STAYS ON THE SANDISK 256MB WELCOME SCREEN HOW CAN I UN FREEZE IT?


Reset the device. 1. Press and hold the Power/Menu button for approximately 20 seconds. 2. Release the Power/Menu button. 3. Press the Power/Menu button again to turn on the player.
Power cycle the device.
The power cycle discharges excess/residual power from the player; with the use of a new battery, it should be able to power on the MP3 player properly.
STEP 1 - Remove the battery STEP 2 - Power cycle the player 1. Connect the player to the PC. 2. Leave the device connected for about 2 minutes.
STEP 3 - Turn on the device 1. Unplug the player from the PC. 2. Insert a fresh AAA battery into the player. 3. Turn on the player.

My sansa mp3 play wont turn on


Tried this? 1.Push the hold switch towards the headphone jack so you see orange
2.Press and hold record on the left of the player
3.With record still being held down, plug into the computer
4.Once you see welcome to recovery mode on the screen of the player, let go of record
At this point you can reload the manual firmware by copying the firmware files to the detected removable disk.
Firmwares- Version 1 Version 2
Download the correct version or else it will render your device useless.Version can be found on the back plate at botton right.. Extract the downloaded file and transfer the contents to removable disk detected.After transferring,disconnect the player and let it upgrade the firmware

Freezing


Creative Zen should have a reset button on the side, it is a very small hole that you will need a pin to push the button inside, hold the button for about 20 seconds. This should reset the player.

Restart


try doing this and let me know if it goes into recovery mode
1. with mp3 off slide the hold button to on so it locks
2.hold down record button on left hand side and keep held down
3. whilst holding record turn mp3 on still hold down record it should now be in recovery mode if your mp3 player gets this far then it can be fixed.
Once in recovery mode goto sandisk site and you need to goto downloads and download latest firmware for your make and model once downloaded it will talk you through how to istall this onto your mp3 player if you have any problems let me know ok
