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.

Can you get power to a treadmill without the safety key? I have a Nordictrack treadmill EXP 1000 XI treadmill.


Hello there. Yes you actually can use a magnet. (thats all the safety key is) It will need to be strong enough to make the switch inside the console activate. I use one from a telescoping magnet used for picking up small screws (available at the big box stores) when I dont have one on service calls.
Just to let you know a refrigerator magnet will not be strong enough!
Good Luck! Tim

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 amazon.com 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.

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.
