Slide control broken on Creative Zen

The On/Off/lock slide on my Creative Zen has broken meaning that the machine is locked on (and now out of juice!).

Is there anyway of repairing this? NB out of warranty.

Thanks
Ken

If the slider is physically broken it should be able to be fixed.

If “broken” means the slider is frozen, the unit may just need to be reset.

To reset your Zen, gently press a pen head, pin, paper clip, etc into the hole under the power button for 20 seconds. This should reset the unit.

Have a Genie garage door open. The wall control unit has a slide lock switch. When slide switch is place in lock position, you can still raise and lower door. What could be the problem?


The plastic slide-lock switch's tab on the inside of the switch body is likely broken. If the lockout function is important to you, order a new switch unit from a door service company such as Overhead Door. Installation is DIY-simple.

My mp3 player froze while i was charging it and won't do anything


Creative Zen should have a reset button on the side, it is a very small hole that you will need a pin to push the button inside, hold the button for about 30 seconds. This should reset the player.

For the lock error or if you happen to see an error message on screen saying system locked unable to shut down or you cannot shut down your unit and a picture of a lock appears near the batterry indicator on the left side of your screen - Simply move the lock button on top of the unit to the left onto the orange area and this will fix your problem. This slide button is located next to the lock picture located on the top of your unit.

Creative Zen doesn't respond to the buttons or music selector


Most Creative zen mp3 players have a slide power on/off button, when slided completely back it sets the mp3 player on key block, maybe it's on key block.

Locked


Have you tried to remove the battery. If not, try this remove battery, see if that works. If removing battery doesn't work you may have to reset your player. First remove battery again, but before you put it back on, slide or hold your power on button, keep holding it down then insert battery. The load-up screen should come on asking to reboot, cleanup , or reload firmware. Just reboot and see what haps

slide the back off, take out the battery, put it back in while holding the power switch on. THis brings up the Recovery Menu, from where you have various options, formatting being but one.
