Question about Creative Labs Zen Digital Media Player

1 Answer

ITS FROZEN!!! ok i love my ZEN, but it seems that every time i try to exit the voice recorder it freezes. the screen is still on, the blu power light is still on, when i plug it into a charger it shows the charging icon, but i still have no response. the only way i have fixed so far is wait 25hrs for it to die, then charge and use like normal. also, it responds to buttons in the light, so you know how the screen goes dim, when i hit a button it still goes to full brightnes like normal but the buttons appropriate action doesn't happen. also when i turn back on, it gives a 'Rebuilding' screen, obviously a test and repair program. thanks

My zen freezes regularly and needs rebooting


It's from the firmware, I've had the same problem and I've gotten the white screen of death. Any suggestions? The power light turns blue but the screen is either black or white, it won't turn off unless I click the reset and then won't turn on until 10+ tries of doing the hold down power button, click reset while plugged in PC thing.

Creative Zen frozen and Reset has not worked


You probably shouldnt play with any of the buttons really but i know how to fix it. You hold down the slide power for about 5 seconds and poke the reset button with a pen tip or w.e for about another 5 seconds till it restarts itself.

Can't upload voice recording from creative zen


Hi
So I had that same issue but then i found the solution while playing with it. if you connect your zen to the computer, open up my computer and find the zen icon. click on it and go until you find the "my recordings" folder. click the folder and you should see all your recordings. right click the one you want to copy and click "copy". then open a folder in your computer and click "paste" and it works!

all you have to do is go to all songs list....then you have to select a recording (most likely titled MEC(then some numbers) next hold the back arrow down for about three seconds and a little grey list should pop up....select delete song/recording. that's all you have to do.

Frozen on start up


Hello,

This sounds like it might be a hard drive problem. Have you tried to put it into Recovery Mode so you can troubleshoot it? Put a paperclip in the Reset hole while holding the power button in the On position. Then release the paperclip and continue to hold the power button until it goes to the Recovery Mode screen. You should at this point try Format and Scan Disk/Cleanup, then Reboot. If it still gets stuck at the same spot, then its going to be a hardware failure.

Creative zen v problems-frozen


If a reset does not work using the reset hole, then try this: First, back up all of your music and do this: Turn off the player and disconnect it from the computer. Then press and hold the play/puse button and turn it on simultaneously. The player should be in recovery mode. Scroll down and select format (all) and let it format. Then reload all of music back onto your player and it should work like new. Hope this helps!

Creative Zen frozen and Reset has not worked


try this if your Zen will not turn on

hold the pause/play button down

while holding the pause/play, first use a paperclip to press the reset button and then slide the power thing down for a few seconds like you are turning it on.

release the pause/play button.

you may need to connect it to usb for it to turn on. worked like a charm for me when everything else failed. hope it helps!!!
