Question about Creative Labs ZEN Vision:M Digital Media Player
The on/off button no longer works and the Zen is in lock mode. Seems as if the on/off button is broken. Any suggestions?
I have had this problem on/off for over a year now...first I put the unit in the refrig to cool it down...that worked a few times. Another time i plugged in an amp (via the earphone jack) and noticed it switched to lock again. I forgot to mention that once i got the unit to unlock I set the system audio to play mode: repeat all, via my playlist, that way it continues to play at each boot up. Any way, my latest lock ....I was able to keep plugging my amp jack into the ear plug and the juice of repeately doing this for about a minute , while hitting play button or removed the lock. I then turned off the unit and charged. I recommend when hooking up the player to radio or other devices via the ear plug to have the external amp off so that doesn't interfer with the player in perpetual play mode. Also just using ear plugs will not fix the problem....it has to have an amp. The voltage somehow resets the lock or at least it has for me unit...Hope this helps some one...

Take it apart. Just google how to do it, i found a post with pictures and took mine apart without much trouble (just had to buy a $5 small screwdriver kit at radioshack). the switch for the lock is actually a metal piece that is moved by that **** piece of plastic. You can move the switch easily to where you want it and put the plastic piece in the correct position. -Stoney
