Question about Creative Technology Zen MX Black (8 GB) MP3 Player

2 Answers

My Creative Zen MX was exposed to water when my water bottle leaked in my bag. I was able to drain the visible liquid from the screen and I put it in a desiccator with silica gel desiccant. How long should I dry it out before I try to turn it on?

I'd wait for at least a day, (not including the night part), Most times when I've immersed my phone, or PDA, I've found that around 12 hours is enough time to soak out the watter.

Often, no harm comes from trying the power, it's just disfunctional, (it may not turn back off for instance), the safe thing is to wait.

Also, another good absorbant medium is Rice, to burry your device in a bowl of rice will draw out the water.

Good luck with that.

If it is possible to remove the battery, do so as quickly as possible. Try to take off as many removable panels as you can find and let it sit for a week.

YOUR AIR BAGS HAVE A LEAK, OR LINE. CHECK WITH A SOAPY WATER SOLUTION, MAKE SOLUTION WITH DISH WATER LIQUID SOAP. GO HEAVY ON THE SOAP. SPRAY WITH A BOTTLE SPRAYER ON THE BAGS AND LINES AND LOOK FOR BUBBLES. THAT WILL BE YOUR LEAK, YOU MAY HAVE MULTIPLE LEAKS, SO MAKE SURE TO CHECK THE ENTIRE SYSTEM.

I have a Zen MX adn i accidently dropped it, it


Try reflashing the firmware for your device you can find the latest firmware and flashing utilities from the manufacturer?s website. Make sure that you back your music up first because when you do this you are setting it back to factory settings.

My zen mozaic won't support any video files i put on it. what files does it take?


well, creative zen likes avi, mpg and wmv formats

the reason that your creative zen won't read the avi is because the necessary codec is missed.

you can use iorgsoft creative zen video converter to convert the video to mp4,wmv then put them to creative zen.

http://www.iorgsoft.com/Creative-Zen-Video-Converter/

if you want to put DVD onto creative Zen, fine, you can use iOrgsoft DVD to Creative Zen converter to remove the DRM(Digital Right Management) and regional restriaction from DVD, and you can also use it to convert DVD to avi, wmv or mpg for playback on creative zen.

My creative zen vision m screen


I don't think people on here are allowed to advertise directly for their services. There are several websites on Google if you search under "zen repair." Also if you scroll down a bit you will see a little box on this page that says "Repair Service." Just put in your zip code to search for repair services near you.
