Credit card size zen


Hi Lil

Sounds like you have tried all the obvious. The unit may have a terminal hardware problem or an unrecoverable firmware problem. I suggest that you return the unit to a dealer and see if there support guys can produce a cure for you. I am looking for any other things that you may try. Will post any for you soon

regards

  1. Press on the Menu/Back button on your player, and select System, and then Reset.To Format or Clean Up Zen Vision:M Detach the Zen Vision:M player from your PC , and ensure that the unit is off.If the battery is too low, charge the battery fully before continuing
  2. Slide the Power switch towards the Power icon and hold the switch in the Power On position.
  3. Push the end of a pin-like object (for example, a straightened paper clip) into the reset hole, press gently and remove.
  4. Release the Power switch when the Creative logo appears. The Recovery Mode appears: * Clean Up (Performs a disk scan on the player's hard disk, it will not affect music files)* Format All (Formats the players hard disk - Note: all contents will be lost)* Reload Firmware (Reloads the Operating System on the Zen. Select this option ONLY if there is a firmware available to reload.)* Reboot (Reboots the device)

    Stuck in recovery mode--would love to avoid buying a new mp3


    I had the same problem as your and it stopped working yesterday. After search for helps and now it is working again after I reloaded the firmware. But unfortunately everything is gone. You have to reload your musics again. You can try this out: 1) go to creative labs website to download the "Recovery Tool". 2) at Recovery Mode of your zen there are options: Clean Up, Format All, Reload Firmware, and Reboot. Try out Clean Up first if it still not working then try to Format All. After that try the Reload Firmware. After you done the Reload Firmware. 3) Shut down your Zen and try to connect it to your computer. Now your Zen will automaticlly power On and computer will recognize it as a drive. 4) Open the Recovery Tool you have downloaded at creative labs website. This tool will detect your Zen and follow it's instructions: It works with my windows Vista. Well, it works for me, I think it will work for your too. Good Luck!
    May God bless.

    Problems with turning on


    Sounds like it may be the index in your Music Library. Try going into Recovery Mode the routine way; remove battery(are they charged and good?), hold power switch to ON, replace battery, release power switch when the Recovery Mode screen appears on the screen. Run Option 1 CleanUP, after it completes run Option 4 Restart/Reboot. You will get a Rebuilding Library screen when it reboots, that's normal, then it should go back to your startup screen. Good luck and let us know what happened
