Question about Creative Labs ZEN Vision:M Digital Media Player

1 Answer

I think my money clip fried my MP3 player

I have a money clip that is leather with a magnet. It's a pretty weak magnet, but strong enough to actually stick on the back of the player.

I can think of no other reason why the Zen: Vision M just died on me. It will power up, but it will not turn on. The intro screen just stays on until the battery dies.

I've gone to the format screen, and even then, nothing happens. The format/clean option doesn't work. The reboot option doesn't work (it just gets stuck on the logo), the reload firmware also gets stuck and doesn't let me do that.

I can even hear the hard drive clicking, which doesn't seem like it's a good idea. I bought the thing less than a year ago.

My Sansa Clip won't work. When I turn it on it says: Not enough space for music DB Please free 30 MB. But when i connect it to my computer it doesn't register. PLEASE HELP ME

Because you drag 7 drop songs or files too much into the sansa clip in MSC mode, it causes like that.
Turn it on, it will show " Not 30 MB", and then automatically turn off. Plug it into pc, open my computer, it will be under name "Sansa clip..." or "removable disk ". If your pc does not recognize it, unplug again and replug it.
Open Sansa Clip..., or removable disk, and delete some songs.
Good luck

My Visual Land V-Bop 8GB MP3 Player nolonger recharges enough to

your mp3 player is fried, sorry. good news is that mp3 players are cheap now days and inexpensive, the new 8gb visual land player modeled after the 4th gen ipod nano is on for 45.00. If i were you, check out the sansa clip plus, its also 45.00 on amazon with 4gb, but has a micro sd port to expand its storage up 16gb more and it sounds way better than any VL player.

No sound from FM player; all other functions appear okay

The FM radio on that player is unusually weak. You will probably only be able to get reception outside. It is not actually a volume issue - that player just has weak reception and is very sensitive to interference.

The magnets shouldnt be strong enough.
I have had my belkin case for years and the magnets havent damaged my ipods so it should not be a problem.

Sansa e250 cracked faceplate needs replacement

If it's just the faceplate (and not the underlying actual LCD) you could replace it with the intact faceplate from an otherwise defective unit. Any of the e200 series should fit. Try that online auction site to see if you can find a cheap defective one, just make sure the faceplate isn't cracked before you bid.

These mp3 players should *always* be placed in one of those clear protective cases. I have mine not only in a clear plastic case, but also in a leather case with a belt clip. Never just stick it in your pocket as that will surely lead to a damaged headphone jack.

Sanza 2 gig

it sounds like you need to get a new battery. Your current battery might be strong enough to light the screen but not strong enough to launch the song. Thats only thing i can think of. Hope this helps! :-) please tell me if it does!
