FM radion and Creative Zen Vision M stopped working

Hello,
A week ago my FM radio on my creative zen vision m stopped
working. All I hear is static, and I cannot receive any channel which i
am used to listening to. I have tried to use it in several locations, so
it not being signal blocked.I tried changing earphone and I have also tried reinstalling the
firmware, resetting the unit, resetting the system settings and running
the MP3 Recovery tool (which reinstalled the firmware again). None of
these had any effect on the situation. Is there any other procedure that
can be done or is this a hardware failure? Thank you for your support

    My FM Radio Menu is missing from my ZEN Vision M. I nolonger can record or listen from radio. I tried upload, reformat and rebooting unsuccessfully. I believe it's the hardware. Can you confirm this? Do I need to replace the motherboard?

    I encountered the exact same problem stated twice above. I honestly haven't done anything to fix it yet but thought i would check first.

Need to replace headphones first - if that fails, then the headphone jack is bad and will need to be replaced. Sorry.

I'm pretty sure no. But if your downloading it from Limewire then some may go and some may not. You'll have to double click it and see it at the Windows Media Player. So go ahead and try it!

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 basi

Replace the headphones, see if reception improves. If that fails to resolve, try reset and recovery. If that still fails, the headphone jack is faulty. Replace.
