FM RADIO IS ACTING WEIRD

I've had my zen vision m for over a year now and have had no problems with it, didnt need to update firmware or anything, but recently (past 3-4 weeks) the radio as been acting up, theres a long beeping noise when i select the radio and when i change stations to see if the noise is coming from any other station all i get is static, when i go back to the original station theres completely no reception and all i get is static. I tried updating the firmware to see if it would fix the problem but nothing happened and i still have the same problem. Any ideas? t

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.

Sounds like you got a faulty HD. You can replace it yourself by following instructions on the I-net or have someone else do it for you if your Zen is out of warranty.

Creative zen problems


You can try a firmware upgrade, but weird sounds are not good - indicate that a circuit diode has gone bad. Find out if you are still in-warranty, and replace the player.

Zen V Plus problems with brightness


Have you tried updating the firmware of your Zen V Plus? I've had mine for almost an year and haven't had these issues -- I updated the firmware as soon as I unpacked it.

try downloading the
MP3 player recovery tool from Creative's website (the tool contains the latest firmware update available -- 1.15.03). Plug your ZV+ into your PC, run the program and let it update the firmware. Then format, reload your music and try it.

By the way, before updating the firmware, let the battery have a full charge, ok
