Question about Creative Labs Zen Touch MP3 Player

1 Answer

Before I Smash it into little pieces...

I have the 8G Creative Zen and my wife has the V Plus and they are both frozen. These things suck and I regret buying them. I have tried all of the things shown on-line. The reset button does nothing. I appears to me that a BAZILLION other people have the same problem. Shouldn't these things be recalled?

Try this for the zen plus and upgrade the firmware.

Creative zen vision :m 30gb wont turn on

if you don't have the kind of charger that goes directly into the dock connector, the zen vision needs a 5V charger ( it happens to be compatible with the PSP charger). if you just plug it into a usb cord it will not charger. you may also need the little white adapter piece the goes into the dock connector. i know only one place that sells older creative zen accessories and repairs creative zen visions . if you have all of that: i assume you pressed the little reset button on the bottom, it may just be frozen? if that doesn't work and you are sure you're charging it right, your logic board is dead.

Zen v plus 8g

If you already try both reset, then try doing a firmware update.

On computer try unplugging computer power cable, and if it is a laptop also remove battery, this sort out problems related with electrostatic charges on computer USB ports.

Try resetting it by inserting a paperclip into the reset hole on the side of the player, just under the on/off switch

My Creative Zen Frozen in Docked Screen


The following worked for me. Go to the Creative Zen Support warranty info page of their site:

I ran the recovery tool with my zen connected to the computer and it changed from being in a docked state to updating firmware, after it had done this it worked fine again.
