Question about Creative Labs ZEN Vision:M Digital Media Player

1 Answer

Will not charge/turn on (Vista)

I seem to have the same turn on/charge problem as many other people. However, I am running Vista and I thought it would be detected automatically as plug-and-play. It's been plugged in via USB for about 20 hours now and nothing seems to be happening other than that blinking blue light. I'm out of ideas and out of patience. Someone please help.

Have you tried to 'reset'? I belive that kinda "force it on" :) You can then reboot to start it up normally.

can you turn it on when charging, if so either it wasn't charged as you thought or the internal battery has expired or faulty

Will not start . thought battery was weak because it seemed like starter was dragging 2 days before not starting. now when i turn key all i hear is relay clicking inside fuse box

Battery and charging system needs to be tested. If the alternator quit you can only run so long on the battery untill it runs out of juice. Boost the truck and let it run for a couple minutes ( remove booster cables ) then remove the negative cable from battery.. if it keeps running the charging system is fine and the battery is to blame.

Battery Symbol and "charged" stay on iPod screen

You could try restoring the software back to factory defaults and see if something is missing. Make sure it is fully charged before doing it.

VP920 goes to sleep

Running Vista? Seems to be a pretty common problem. Thought it was a driver issue at first, since one of the newest released drivers listed a similar issue.
