    I have the exact problem. I was charging the ZEN VPlus 2 and now it's just dead. The computer doesn't even register it connected as a USB device. What's wrong with it?

My creative zen player used to connect to pc now it dosent


my pc stopped detecting my zen. i tried and tried on all different pcs and nothing would pick it up. couldnt even get the battery sign on the zen. thought it was knacked. then one day i plugged it in again, got distracted and walked away. when i came back about two hours later, it was detected and charging. thought maybe that it was so flat that it had to charge a wee bit before it could display anything or the pc could find it. i dont know, dont know much about these things. just a thought

My Creative Zen won't turn on or so sizes of charging.


On the bottom is a very small hole. Put a pin in and push, it will start your creative up again.

My zen was working know its not at all wont turn on or off


Just look at the left side of the mp3, not where all the buttons are, but on the bottom left corner of the side of your mp3, and a little tiny barely noticeable button is there. it says "reset" click it and it should reboot or it'll start working
I recently found this out today :)
I had the same problem about like 15 times xD
So hope this helps!

Zen doesnt turn on, problem


I'm no better than a normal dude with this technological stuff, but i'll try to help anyways :) So, if you haven't solved the problem yet i think it could be that it (the Zen, mp3 player) has to recharge FULLY in order to be functional.So that's the 6 hours.It says on the Quickstart paper that the display turns off to conserve power. So i was thinking that could be it. The Zen was/is in recharge mode when you tried to power it on.It only turns on, when you've succesfully charged the WHOLE battery thingy. This is only a thought and should not be trusted 100% :) Ok, i really hope that this helps 'cause nobody had written anything to solve this or similiar problems. Alright, catch ya later!

If you have windows set to do automatic updates, you most likely had a windows update installed that caused this conflict with Win Media Player 11. No fix has been posted by Microsoft yet, so the only workaround is to Uninstall/Rollback Windows Media Player 11. Goto <Control Panel<Add/Remove Programs and remove Windows Media Player 11. Follow prompts, restart computer when prompted to. Also uninstall Windows Media Player 11 Runtime application following same procedure above.
This will roll your Windows Media Player back to version 10 or 9, whichever you had installed prior to version 11. You will need to re-configure Windows Media Player again.

Your Zen should now be recognized by WMP and Creative software. You probably need to upgrade your firmware at this point, follow the instructions on upgrading your firmware, and you should be good to go.

This is a windows problem, not a creative problem. Dont blame Creative for the screwed up hotfixes that Microsoft puts out on a regular basis.

My creative zen is completely dead it doesn't power on at all also it doesn't charge there is no power what so ever please help me


I have had the problem of the completely dead player after having it for less that an day. No response to any buttons, no response when plugged into USB to charge, and Windows sees it as an "unknown device" when plugged into the PC. It tried the reset hole, and still nothing.

Then I tried connecting it to the PC to charge and then using the reset hole. Success - the player sprang back to life, fully charged. Hope this helps someone.

My creative zen screen was flickering white


SEEMINGLY RANDOM PROBLEM

I've seen a million reasons why people think their Creative Zens are going to the white screen of death. I've tried a million different things myself in trying to 'solve' the problem. The only quick-fix that has worked consistently was freezing the Zen (in a plastic bag, of course). After freezing it, it always boots fully the first time I turn it on, but your guess is as good as mine as to how many times it will work before having to freeze it again.

PUT THE SQUEEZE ON - CAREFULLY!
To me, the problem has always seemed like it had to do with a lack of connection or contact inside the thing. So, my next theory has proved - so far - to work even better than freezing. However, it's a bit of a risk to the LCD screen. I noticed the casing seemed a bit "loose", so I squeeze it (be careful not to break the LCD!!!!) as I turned it on. The first time I did this was last night. The Zen has properly booted every time I've turned it on since then. I've left it for hours and turned it on occasionally when I've thought of it...and presto!

I ASKED AN EXPERT!
My brother is an electronics expert. I described the problem to him and asked his opinion. Without going into detail (that I can't remember anyway), he concluded that there are contacts in the casing for the LCD that just aren't quite making the contact.

WHY?!
I fail to understand why Creative refuses to do anything about this problem when it seems that it would be a simple fix. I understand that they have more lucrative business to attend to, but selling a bum product and not even acknowledging the problem - much less fixing it - just isn't right.

MY ZEN WAS WORKING FINE AND NOW THE SCREEN IS BLANK


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."
