ZVM won't charge


Usually this problem is due to the firmware. If you upgrade the firmware to version 1.62.02, this problem usually will disappear. The older firmwares have problems in recognizing the battery and allowing the battery to power the unit.

Here is what you'll need to do to save your Zen: you will need a charger for the operation. I recommend buying a brand new charger from the Creative Labs website or a used one here, instead of getting an aftermarket one off Ebay. Aftermarket ones tend to cause problems or fail to work altogether.

Plug in the wall charger and USB cable at the same time. Your Zen should power on when connected the charger. Once it is powered on, connect the USB cable to your computer.

If your Zen does not power on when connected to the 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.
Download the firmware to your PC, then reboot your PC and connect the Zen via USB cable. Open the firmware icon to begin the download.

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.

CREATIVE ZEN GONE HAYWIRE


sounds like it might be either a bad firmware driver, which can be erased and reinstalled via the USB connection to your computer and a download from creative. Or the battery has gone bad, in which case you have to have it sent to creative for Repair.

Mp3 is dead?


Try using the reset button underneath the power slide button on the left. Use a paper-clip or pencil to push the button in and hold for 2secs.
