Camileo p10 wont turn on or charge


I had a similar problem with the P10 not charging via USB, I purchased mine second hand so it came with no charger just a USB cable. I assumed it would charge by the USB cable but it did not, the red light flashes but doesn't charge. Luckily I have an external battery charger for a different camera i got some years ago that takes a similar battery , the P10 battery didn't fit properly so I had to place it at a 45 degree angle into the charger making sure the outer contacts were lined up properly and taped it into place. After an hour it was fully charged and the camera is working fine. The charger is a 4.2 volt charger. New external chargers can be picked up on ebay cheaply

I've lost my creative zen charger and want to find


if you still have the usb cable of your creative zen, you can try to connect it to a computer. if it's detected properly, try to wait atleast 5 minutes for it to charge, if after 5minutes and it won't turn on. the board of your mp3 might be damaged.

Zen m wont turn on


Well, it needs to charge via USB on your computer, so plug in your zen into the computer with the creative usb cord, and let it recharge. It may not necessarily turn on if it's really out of battery, but you can tell its charging when the switch you use to turn on and off, and hold, the light is blinking. After sometime, your Zen screen on the upper righthand corner should show a little battery and be blinking green what stage it's at in its charging. When its done charging the battery icon with be fully green, not blinking, and have a little plug icon inside of the battery icon to indicate that it is fully charged--takes a couple of hours to charge.

If that does not work, check your USB cord to make sure it's not damaged in any way. If it is, you may need to purchase a new one for better connection. And if that doesn't work, then you might need to replace the battery altogether, which I'm sure, if you are still in your manufactuer's warranty, they can do for you. After it is replaced, your zen should be good as new and ready to operate.

Hope this helps. Good luck!

Dead Creative Zen M


Usually this problem is due to the firmware. When the firmware is updated to version 1.62.02, this problem usually will be corrected. The older firmwares have problems in recognizing the battery and allowing the battery to power the unit.

You will need a wall/AC charger for the operation. Plug in the wall charger and USB cable at the same time. Your Zen should power on when connected to direct AC power via the wall charger. Once it is powered on, connect the USB cable to your computer. Then begin the firmware download.

If your Zen does not power on when connected to the wall charger, your unit is dead and its time to replace it or get the motherboard replaced via one of the Repair services offered on this website.

If the upgrade button on the firmware window is not available, it is also time to replace your motherboard due to corruption of a chip on the board.

External charger for battery?


I had the same problem just today,when I turned my Zen on after like 6 months- zen working fine from the charger but battery would not show any charging[no battery icon].What I did is cut the output cord from charger and strip the two wires just a little bit and hold the bare ends straight on the battery contacts - and + [plus is the one with white stripes] for like 30 seconds and than put the battery back to the Zen,turn on the zen [without the charger pluged in] and it worked,showing slightly charged battery,so I pluged the charger back and it started charging the battery normal like before.Hope this helps,Lukas

Plug it into your walloutlet usb charger rather then the one connected to your pc. once your battery is so low it wont even have enough juice to show the charge battery screen if your chargeing through the low voltage pc active sync cable.

try this
"If your Zen V is dead, wont respond to anything, try this, plug it in to the computer, hold the power switch in the on position, THEN trigger the reset button, worked like a charm for mine, I had thought it a lost cause."

Creative Vision: M Won't Power Up


I had a similar problem with my Zen Vision: M. I had let it sit for awhile and the battery lost all power. It wouldn't charge or connect to the computer. After fighting with customer support for a long time they agreed to have it shipped in for service. I also was not able to find my receipt to send them. But I bought it at Circuit City and they are able to pull up any receipt for any purchase made with them. I suppose you could always try to try that with the retailer you purchased the device from. Before you go to all that trouble though try these steps: 1. Connect the device to the wall charger. 2. Hold the power switch to ON. 3. Put a paper clip into the reset hole. 4. Continue holding the power switch on until the Creative logo appears. 5. Select Format All from the Recovery Mode menu. (Note: THIS WILL ERASE ALL DATA FROM YOUR DEVICE! - but it's better than buying a new device) 6. When the reformatting is done, select Reboot from the Recovery Mode menu. Let me know what the results are from this.
