Sort of. I had it connected to my computer, since it would turn on, but not load, but not urn off o_o;

After a while I looked down at it and it said 'Bye' (like when you turn it off) So I unplugged it hoping it was fixed, but now it won't turn back on >.<;;;;

Re: MP3 Wont turn on

I have the same problem.  When I connect to the computer, it does recognize it, but says the battery is fully charged.  When I try to turn it on...nothing!  I found that if I hold down the power button real hard, it'll come on and stay on as long as I am holding down the button, but when I let go, it turns off.  I tried all the downloads, etc.  but this seems like a mechanical issue.  Like the battery isn't seating all the way on the connector.  Has anyone figured out how to get this thing apart so i can try to fix it?  There's no screws anywhere!

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

My RCA TH1161-A mp3 player wont work at all

Ensure the key lock is not activated by sliding
"Power on/off ( )/Hold" towards the center
position. If your player isn’t already on, turn it on by
sliding "Power on/off ( )/Hold" to the left
and holding until the player turns on.

Wont turn on

Sounds like it could be a problem w/ your battery. You might try removing your battery and blow out any dust or crap thats gotten back in there.
