Mine isn't a ZEN V Plus but it is a ZEN mp3

it could be the battery that is dead, however it is more likely that the chargers your are trying do not match the voltage needs necessary to charge it. just because a charger fits does not mean that it will actually charge it. LI-ion batteries are VERY picky and some can explode (literally EXPLODE as in bang, where did my hand go) if the wrong voltage is applied. here's the thing, most devices have a fail-safe built into them so that you cannot mess up the battery unfortunately the first charger you tried could have fried this making it unchargeable the reason the other charger works is because when a proper voltage is applied the power is split between running the device and charging the battery (this is cut off if too much power is applied) the actual battery takes very little power to charge you should look up the player via google and take not of the voltage and amperage needed to charge it these are important, there is a good chance it will still work. just buy the proper cable to hook it up to the PC this should charge it however that's not a guarantee the olympus mr100 for instance, would not charge via PC only with the dock and wall adapter. good luck and i hope this helps!

P.S. there is still the possibility that the bat. is fried and you may need a new one.

Doesn't turn on or charger is not working

this has happened to me before. the battery is probably dead. so you so buy a car charger and plug it in and the power should be restored since the car battery is powerful. i did it and it worked easily.

Mp3 player shows that battery is dead even though its charged and the screen only works if i hold the on off switch the whole time

try inserting the charger to a different socket until it works. if not you might be having problem with the charger. not the mp3 player and if you already triedto change the charger you might be having problem with the battery of your mp3 player ok send me a message for more concerns.

Battery Problems?

Hi all. If you have had your players for some time, and have re-charged them many times over that period (a usual action) then your battery might be near dead.

Most re-chargeable batteries, the longer they are used and re-charged, actually decrease in charged capacity over time.

The only solution, if this *is* the problem, is to fit a new battery. Firms make replacement nw-a3000 etc. batteries for this purpose. I did a google search and found this site:

There are, I am sure, many more sites which can supply you with what you need!

Ipod won't charge, won't show up in itunes.

The same thing happened to me. I suggest getting a wall charger? And if your iPod won't show up on iTunes but you want to add songs and stuff, just keep trying.

Wont turn on

Get this. The instruction manual, at least the one that came with my MP3 player, has INCORRECT instructions for how to charge it. It says you just plug it in, but you actually have to plug it in and double-click the power button. Don't click and hold, and you DO have to press it twice, quickly. You'll see the charge bar start to fill.
You may also want to try resetting it, use a paper clip and poke it into the little tiny hole on the top next to the headphone plug in. That should reset it and be good to go. If that doesn't work, try reformatting.

Well, charging the battery alot may cause it to malfunction. So you have to charge your battery only when in is near zero (empty), and for no more than 8 hours depending on what device you use. Now your battery is dead, so you got to replace it. Goodluck
