Question about Creative Labs ZEN V Plus MP3 Player

1 Answer

Display Screen.. I accidentally stepped on my Zen V and broke the display screen. The MP3 player itself does work, but I can barely see much of anything. My question is, can the display screen be replaced? And how would I go about opening the cover over the display screen?

The screen froze and keypad just wouldn't work. How to restore it?

1 Turn off your player.

2 Press and hold the Play/Pause.Continue to hold the Play/Pause button until you perform Steps 3 and 4.If you accidentally release the button, start the procedure again.

3 Gently push the end of a thin object (like a pin or straightened paperclip) into the Reset hole. The reset button for the ZEN Mozaic is located on the left side of the player, with the menu buttons facing you.

4 Slide the On/Off/Lock switch towards the power button and hold until the display lights up. The Recovery Mode screen appears, and four menu items are shown: Clean Up, Format All, Reload Firmware and Reboot.

From here you should be able to choose to reload the firmware.

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.

No display

i think that a good firmware update would repair the problem
Make sure it's the good model and download the latest firmware
download it
connect your mp3 player and run the firmware updater
that should reset your mp3 player without erasing your song and display should be ok
Good luck

Zen mosaic works fine but screen does not

Go in to Settings, Display Settings and turn up the brightness. Also consider using a lighter theme (also in Display Settings), or uploading a bright picture of your own and then setting that as wallpaper.

Creative zen v plus wallpaper display.

Very rare - go ahead and replace it - it cannot be repaired - this is the only case of screen burn-in on an Mp3 that i have ever heard of, but it happens plenty on mid -1990s, early-2000s TV's.LCD monitors of all ages, etc.
