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.

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.

The screen froze and keypad just wouldn't work. How to restore it?


1 Turn off your player.


2 Press and hold the Play/Pause.Continue to hold the Play/Pause button until you perform Steps 3 and 4.If you accidentally release the button, start the procedure again.


3 Gently push the end of a thin object (like a pin or straightened paperclip) into the Reset hole. The reset button for the ZEN Mozaic is located on the left side of the player, with the menu buttons facing you.


4 Slide the On/Off/Lock switch towards the power button and hold until the display lights up. The Recovery Mode screen appears, and four menu items are shown: Clean Up, Format All, Reload Firmware and Reboot.

From here you should be able to choose to reload the firmware.

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

My Creative Zen started freezing a couple weeks ago. I would press the restart button at the bottom left and that seemed to solve it. Now though, when I turn it on, the Creative Zen welcome screen comes...


It sounds like the hard drive is damaged I have a archos 605 wifi it froze up on me so i turned it off and turned it back on and it wouldn't load pass the archos welcome screen come to find out my hard drive was damaged.Hopfully yours is still under warranty otherwise you'll have to send it in and pay to get it fixed but i would say the hard drive is damaged.

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.
