If you tried to reset it, but it did not respond at all, this indicates that the reset button is broken. You'll need to have it repaired.

SOURCE: Battery replacement - Creative Zen

I now have 2 dead zens. to open them up I used my finger nail to get between the 2 halves. you have to slowly and carefully work them apart. once opened up there are several small phillips screws that must be removed, once removed you can now flip the circuit board over exposing the battery which is taped down with double sided tape and the wires are soldered into the circuit board. I intend to cut the wires and solder in new battery and use heat shrink tubing to insulate the wires the wires. Now all I have to do is find replacement batteries. pepsiman

Hi.
just pressing the reset button is not enough.


Try this:


1. To reset the player, gently insert a thin object into the Reset hole located below the power switch.

2. Press and hold the Play/Pause button while powering on your player.

3. When the player displays the Creative logo, release the Play button.



Depending on the model you can also use following procedure:
1. Remove the battery.

2. Move and hold the Power button to the Power On position and re-insert the battery to the Zen Vision. Hold the Power button until the Recovery Mode appears.

I'll begin by saying that this is an 8GB Creative Zen MX, and NOT a 16GB, but I believe the solution may be the same. My zen will not turn on, or connect to my computer. This happened just yesterday...

My mp3 player went blank but its still on


Creative knowledge base gives this answer for blank screen on a Zen MX:
White screens or blank screens could be easily resolved with a firmware reload. The following steps will take you through the troubleshooting steps.
  1. Reset your player and verify if the screen is able to display its contents
  2. Make sure that the player has fully charged battery
  3. Finally, perform the recovery tool if the screen still does not display any contents properly through the following site:
