Creative Zen dropped in tea

My Creative Zen player got dropped in a cup of tea. I have taken the back casing off but haven't managed to remove the battery. The player is still unresponsive. Please help, it was only delivered yesterday!!

    Thanks for response, I let it dry out for a day and was still unresponsive. But then I connected it to my computer using the usb cable and straight away it came to life!!! Its been four days now and its still going so Im happy!!!



    To get the casing off was a bit of a job to be honest. I used those really tiny screw drivers, (the ones you use for fixing reading glasses) if you can get you hands on them I used the smallest one, its got a really small head. Its important that you prise the back off and not the front as you could damage the inside if you do it the other way around. Then you have to work your way around the player, as there are little clips holding it in place. You will feel resistance but just be gentle.

    Hope this helps.

Once you remove the back casing,
take a blow dryer and dry the inside.


p.s. How did you remove it?
Please share, as I dropped
my Creative Zen into water,
and I can't figure out how to
disassemble it.

How do you put Videos on The Creative Zen Mosaic MP3


well, creative zen likes avi, mpg and wmv formats

the reason that your creative zen won't read the avi is because the necessary codec is missed.

you can use iorgsoft creative zen video converter to convert the video to mp4,wmv then put them to creative zen.

http://www.iorgsoft.com/Creative-Zen-Video-Converter/

if you want to put DVD onto creative Zen, fine, you can use iOrgsoft DVD to Creative Zen converter to remove the DRM(Digital Right Management) and regional restriaction from DVD, and you can also use it to convert DVD to avi, wmv or mpg for playback on creative zen.

Creative Zen 4 gig doesn't start when I click on its icon


Have you tried removing the software or reinstalling it? Don't worry about the 3GB of music, you won't lose it UNLESS you reformat your Zen.

My creative zen won't switch on


Use a pushpin and insert it slowly but firmly into the reset hole. It's located right next to the charging dock on the bottom.

I've had mine for three years now, so I guess it's time to start looking for a better rated one for Christmas. It's pretty annoying, I agree.

Creative zen meadia player 30gb


I had the same problem. Reinstalling Windows Media Player didn't help; nor did reinstalling the Creative drivers.
But this worked... in Device Manager I uninstalled everything under Universal Serial Bus controllers, rebooted and let Windows reinstall the USB drivers. Had to reinstall my mouse software too, but the Zen is now back to normal.
Hope this helps someone.

Zen Media Explorer keeps saying "Player not connected"


This worked for me - My Zen player had the same 'not connected problem'

From the Start menu, select Control Panel > System. From the window that appears, select the Hardware tab and then click on Device Manager. You will find a listing for your Zen Player - probably under Portable Devices. You may well see that the entry for Zen has an exclamation mark in it - delete this entry by right clicking your mouse. Reboot your PC with the Zen player still attached and you should find that the problem is cured.

How do I disassemble my Creative Zen?


I'd say it's a better idea not to try it. Notify Creative's technical support and hopefully they'll be able to do something under your warranty. Either way, as far as I know, it's waterproof, I mean, I've fully submerged mine multiple times and it's still perfectly fine.
