Question about Creative Labs ZEN Vision:M Digital Media Player

1 Answer

FM Tuner not working.

Hi
I bought my Zen M Vision 30 GB circa 2 years and it was working fine until recently when my FM reception failed. I downloaded the most recent firmware and rebooted but still cannot get the system to locate any of my local FM stations.

Help please!
Regards

    Nope - to my knowledge the Player hasn't been dropped but I will try another set of earphones as the antennae may have malfunctioned.



    Many thanks for reply.

Akai Stereo Tuner Amplifier(AA-1125).with faulty tuner


It could be that IC's that control the AM/FM radio have failed and need replacing. On the circuit diagram it has two numbered LA1240 and LA1230. Though it's unlikely both would fail at the same time. Unless you were not using the AM radio and that failed first and then the FM one went. However there is a 7 pin device which is called the Front End. This is located connected to the tuning gang. The metal thing with flanges that in-twine. Both the AM and FM aerial leads go into this before reaching the IC's. It contains a FET and some transistors. It has 12 volts on pin 4. And there is a 300ohm output on pin 3, where both FM and AM signals come out. So you can check that out. If it's not showing 12 volts on that pin there is something wrong or the 300 ohms on 3.
You could at one time get a replacement Front End, but after all this time it's unlikely they are still made. But with a lot of work it should be possible to get inside the Front End and replace the faulty parts.
The service manual is free and online. Just type the model number and service manual into google and you will see the free PDF of it. Parts numbers for the Front End are mentioned, just in case somebody still stocks it!

Zen Vision M freezing during music upload.


Try to add your music a bit at a time instead of your whole library at once. That will freeze it. You can also try sync with Window's Media Player, which works a lot better than the Creative software.

Zen middle side buttons not opening Music Library or any of the other sections


If pressing the Reset button doesn't work, you should probably try reloading the firmware (this would be a good time to update your firmware anyways). You can get the latest firmware off the Creative site under "Support". Just be sure you select the right player, as there are several on the list that look similar.
