Question about Creative Labs Zen V MP3 Player

1 Answer

How do I replace the battery for Creative Zen V mp3?

I'm wondering if this is possible. I have not found anywhere on the web that gives instructions. I find it hard to believe that the only solution to a new battery is to send it back to the manufacturer or just pitch it. Any help would be greatly appreciated!!

My Creative Zen MP3 player wont charge.What to do?

This could be many things including an bad power supply or bad USB cable. If you have the ability to swap those out for testing, you should. It is very possible, however, that the battery or even the unit is defective. I believe the Zen has not been manufactured in almost five years -- all rechargeable batteries have a limited life and you may be past the usable life of this.

It is possible to replace the battery, but it's not that easy. You can find instructions below, but I would suggest looking for a new MP3 player.

I can't say this will work for you, but I had exactly the same problem (I think the clicking noise has something to do with the hard disk being slightly dislodged - possibly after dropping it?). I found that giving the side of the Zen a sharp smack on my knee sorted it out.
