Question about Creative Labs ZEN V Plus MP3 Player

1 Answer

Reset button stuck

I used a paperclip to reset it once, now the reset button is all messed up.
i plug into my computer to charge and the screen flickers at low battery then it charges for a bit, then it goes back to the low battery screen flickering.
I've tried to use a thin staple to move the reset button so it works, but even with the reset button in what i believe is the right place, it's still doing the same thing.
what do i do?

Firmware upgrade to resolve permanently (Creative website)

Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard.

I just bought a GPX MP3 player (ML651B) I put music on it and was charging it. It now doesn't even want to turn on. I looked at the GPX website and I couldn't even find this one among their products. Now,...


The power button (more like a slide) on the bottom right side will turn it on once it's ejected from the computer. Hold the slide in, and let go after a second or two. Give it a few seconds (like 10) and it should power on. I got mine as a gift and am still working through the interface.

Hello,

Assuming the player is charged. (For charging always connect directly to the computer, not through a reader or hub).
When buttons on the player do not react, reset the player:
Disconnect the player from the computer.
See that the HOLD button is not engaged.
Gently push the RESET button on the rear side: use a narrow pointed
object, like a paperclip.

Did synchronization of the songs in Windows Media Player fail ?
For transferring songs, check in Windows Media Player:
1. The player is detected in Windows Media Player 10 or higher.
2. Setup the Library / Add to Library: add the location of songs you want to transfer in the library.
3. Create Playlist; give the list a name and put songs in a playlist
4. Sync Playlist: transfer the list of songs onto the player and wait for the message until you're allowed to disconnect.

Wont charge


There should be a small reset button next to where you plug the USB cable in to the device. Use a paperclip end to depress it. Hold it in for 15 to 20 seconds and then release. If still a no-go. Hold the reset button in until you see a reaction on the display. Go luck.

My Zen Mozaic is dead, won't charge on ANY computer. Was fine b4.


I had this problem myself and the solution is really simple. As you look at the Zen, turn the left hand side towards you. Near the bottom you will see a very tiny "reset" button. Press and hold (with a pin or fine pen tip) for a couple of seconds, then try turning the Zen on. It worked for me

My Creative Zen seems to have frozen up on me.


Use a paperclip to push the reset button throught a small hole on the bottom of the Zen. If the battery is dead, you may need to plug it in for a minute and then push the reset button while it's charging.

Frozen screen


On the very bottom of your Walkman, next to where you'd normally put the USB cable on the left side (when the screen is facing you) is a reset button. Hit it with a pin, that should do it :)

Screen Stuck


The Samsung YP-F1 has a reset button located under the black Samsung cover plate. It can be gently removed via a finger nail or mini flat blade screwdriver. Once plate is removed a hole labeled reset will be seen. Use something like a paper clip and press in. MP3 will power down/reset. MP3 data is also retained after reset.
