    I have the same problem with mind

  • carriacou Mar 15, 2008

    I have a creative zen xtra 30gb, and the trouble is that when it comes to charging up the battery, it says the battery is low, even when i charged it up overnight. I have just brought this new mp3, and had previously owned the same one for about 4 and a half years, until it played in one ear. I still have the old one for charging the battery, but it is annoying when I am travelling to work, and the battery is low, knowing that i can't re-charge it. I have reinstalled the CD software, but i still doesn't recharge. Can you help?





    Thanx

    I have the same problem. My MP3 player does not work unless I have it on the charging device. I can not use it with being attached to charger. I have rebooted and downloaded new software but nothing seems to work. I can't get through to the support the line is always busy.

How do i turn it on? I lost the manual. I tried the "m" button and the "play" button. But it wont work. And i charged it/


Hello,

The MP300 uses one not rechargeable AAA battery, that will not be charged when connecting to the USB port of a computer.

When the player has abnormal behaviour, RESET the player as next:
1. Disconnect your player if it is connected to a
computer.
2. Remove the battery from the player. Wait 10
seconds, and then replace the battery.
3. Power ON the player, push the play/pauze/stop button >|| .
note
Check the correct polarity + and - of the battery matching the player.
Try a new battery when the RESET won't work.

To switch ON the player, press the play/pauze/stop button >|| .
For switching OFF, press the >|| button for at least 3 seconds.

There's a manual for the MP300 on this site:

MY Zen WONT TURN ON. It also wont charge.


Connect the player to a USB port on the back of a desktop PC.. Check the display for the charging icon . As the display times out after a few seconds, press any button on the player to reactivate the display. If the battery is fully depleted, the charging icon may not be displayed. Cup the player in your hands to check that the blue power LED behind the Play/Pause and Options buttons is blinking on and off repeatedly. This indicates that the player is successfully charging. After 1 hour of charging, power on the unit to activate the display. The charging icon should be displayed. Allow the player to charge for at least 6 hours. During this time, if charging from a USB port, please ensure your PC does not enter a power conservation mode (Standby, Sleep, or Hibernate) as this will interrupt charging. If the player does not indicate a charge, or will not power on after at least 6 hours of charging, please contact Customer Support.
You might try updating your ZEN V or ZEN V Plus firmware to take advantage of new features and functionality.

Unable to switch on


The most common cause is a flat battery. There is a trick to charging the battery in these small mp3 players. It wont charge if it is turned on, and it won't charges if it's turned off. Here what to do...
1. plug the payer into your USB port. or wall charger
2. switch thje palyer on using the mechanical switch (on the side)
3. turn it off by either holding down the play button, or selecting "System" from the menu
4. The screen will go black and the battery will begin charging.

Ipod won't work unless plugged in to computer or mains


alison65,

good day, the only possible cause why your player can only power up using it's own charger or through pc connection is:

1) The connection of the rechargeable battery inside the player is loose or out of contact

2) The rechargeable battery itself is faulty
3) The connection from the charging line is loose or out of contact

most likely your problem is within the internal of the unit.

cheers,
mark
