My zen micro photo doesn't seem to have a reset "hole" below the power switch

I think to reset mine, I take the battery out and then hold the swith on while putting the batttery back in. If I am incorrect and there is another way to reset, please advise me. Thank you very much for your time!

Creatinve Zen 4GB video - Photos, not turning on.


Hi,

Initially:
  1. try a reset: Insert a paperclip into the reset hole at the bottom of the Vision
  2. Or, try running off mains power, not battery (in case you have a dead battery)
  3. If you're able to get in to the system, try going into Recovery Mode
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

How do i reset my zen?


Hi there,

1. Find the reset hole on the side of the player, just below the power/hold switch. DO NOT MISTAKE IT FOR THE MICROPHONE HOLE AT THE TOP.
2. Push a paper clip in the hole, and the player should automatically shut off.

Regards,

My zen V plus is stuck in recovery mode. i cannot select an option or shut it off. how do i reset it?


try this: Find the reset hole on the side of the player just below the power/hold switch. Please do not mistake it for the microphone hole at the top. Then push a paper clip or something similar in the hole, and the player should automatically shut off. If your player does not shut off, you will have to wait for the battery to run out and die, but usually the reset hole works.

My zen is freezeing


1. I'd try a system clean up first (instructions below)
2. definitely upgrade your firmware (http://us.creative.com/support/downloads/)
3. If all else fails, back up all your music on your PC and format it (instructions below)

.... from Creative's site

Reset, Format or Clean Up a Zen Vision:M If your player stops responding, you can reset it. To reset the player, push the end of a pin-like object (for example, a pin or straightened paperclip) into the Reset hole. This should not cause you to lose any data or audio tracks, unless you were in the middle of transferring an audio track.
To reset Zen Vision:M to factory default settings:
Press on the Menu/Back button on your player, and select System, and then Reset.
To Format or Clean Up Zen Vision:M
  1. Detach the Zen Vision:M player from your PC , and ensure that the unit is off. If the battery is too low, charge the battery fully before continuing
  2. Slide the Power switch towards the Power icon vision_m_reset.jpgand hold the switch in the Power On position.
  3. Push the end of a pin-like object (for example, a straightened paper clip) into the reset hole, press gently and remove. vision_m_reset1.jpg
  4. Release the Power switch when the Creative logo appears. The Recovery Mode appears:
    • Clean Up (Performs a disk scan on the player's hard disk, it will not affect music files)
    • Format All (Formats the players hard disk - Note: all contents will be lost)
    • Reload Firmware (Reloads the Operating System on the Zen. Select this option ONLY if there is a firmware available to reload.)
    • Reboot (Reboots the device).
  5. Select Clean Up or Format from the Recovery Mode, and then select Reboot.
