Blank screen on my Zen...

My Zen resets and everything, and it'll go through the intro screen and then it freezes after "ZEN" disappears... everytime. I was just putting music on it. The computer doesn't even register that it's connected. Can you offer any advice?

    I just got a new Zen. Same problem as another user described. The music is playing, but nothing shows on the screen. It turns on and off fine, and the computer recognizes it. I pushed the reset button, but still nothing on the screen.



    I have had a Zen V Plus for years. It's great except I found that it will freeze up if I am not careful when fast-forwarding audio books.

ZEN will not power up


First back up all of your music and do this: Turn off the player and make sure it is disconnected from the computer. Then press and hold the play/pause button and turn it on simultaneously. It will then enter recovery mode. Scroll down and select format (all) and let it format and it should work like normal. If it freezes again, then you may need a firmware update.

My zen wont play an y music


try sliding down the power button while holding down play and resetting the zen while the player is off, this should bring you to the zen format screen thing, select "clean up" if this doesn't work try selecting the other options from the zen format screen thing.

My creative zen keeps freezing!


Hi -
I know this response is way late to help you, but I was having the same problem. I could turn the zen on fine, but as soon as I tried to play music it would freeze and I couldn't turn it off. Using the reset button didn't help any since it would still freeze if I tried to play anything.

But I found reformatting the entire zen totally fixed it.

-directions-
Connect your zen to your computer, go to windows explorer, click computer on the side bar, and your zen should be under "portable devices". Click on it. You should now be viewing the "storage media". Right click and select "Format...". This completely resets the zen, clearing any preferences or media you put on it and the freezing problem.

It was annoying putting all the pictures, videos, and itunes back onto my zen, but at least it works now. Since I've reformatted it, I have had no problems.

Hopefully this helps others who experience this problem.

SCREEN FREEZES


Have you tried the reset button? Located on the bottom ( I think), you will need a straightened paper clip.
