Question about Creative Labs ZEN Vision:M Digital Media Player
My Creative is completely dead. It doesn't turn on. Reset does nothing. Computer can't detect it either. Some people have got a flashing blue light but mine doesn't even do that! Has the battery completely died on me?
Usually this problem is due to the firmware. When the firmware is updated to version 1.62.02, this problem usually will be corrected. The older firmwares have problems in recognizing the battery and allowing the battery to power the unit.
You will need a wall/AC charger for the operation. Plug in the wall charger and USB cable at the same time. Your Zen should power on when connected to direct AC power via the wall charger. Once it is powered on, connect the USB cable to your computer. Then begin the firmware download.
If your Zen does not power on when connected to the wall charger, your unit is dead and its time to replace it or get the motherboard replaced via one of the Repair services offered on this website.
If the upgrade button on the firmware window is not available, it is also time to replace your motherboard due to corruption of a chip on the board.

Usually when the blue light flashes, it means you completely used all of your battery power. If you have a wall charger, plug it in. But if you don't just leave it plugged into your computer for about 12-14 hours, thats how I fixed mine.
