Only white screen appears while starting.

My Creative Zen 16Gb got to the stage where every time I turned it on I would get a white screen. I tried many so called solutions, including those on the Creative website - nothing really workd for any length of time. Eventually, suspecting is was a connection issue with the dispaly, I held the Zen in both hands and twisted the case a few times - nothing broke and my Zen has been working faultlessy for the last three days. Hope this helps.

I did not use my Zen MP3 4GB player for several months. On attempting to re-start it, I was unable to get anything except a blank -although lit - display screen. The player has been charged for many hours,...

try to drain the charge of the battery. the try to recharge it. most white screen issue of creative zen is due to power surge specially when it's connected to a usb port.

If you have windows set to do automatic updates, you most likely had a windows update installed that caused this conflict with Win Media Player 11. No fix has been posted by Microsoft yet, so the only workaround is to Uninstall/Rollback Windows Media Player 11. Goto <Control Panel<Add/Remove Programs and remove Windows Media Player 11. Follow prompts, restart computer when prompted to. Also uninstall Windows Media Player 11 Runtime application following same procedure above.
This will roll your Windows Media Player back to version 10 or 9, whichever you had installed prior to version 11. You will need to re-configure Windows Media Player again.

Your Zen should now be recognized by WMP and Creative software. You probably need to upgrade your firmware at this point, follow the instructions on upgrading your firmware, and you should be good to go.

This is a windows problem, not a creative problem. Dont blame Creative for the screwed up hotfixes that Microsoft puts out on a regular basi

Won't turn on

Well, if you are new to the creative zen Nano plus, you may not have figured out how to turn it on. hold the play/pause button until the mp3 lcd screen lights up and that should work. if this is not the case i am sorry i cant help, but i also have a creative zen Nano Plus so i could find out for both of our benefits. i hope i helped!
