Creative zen v plus broken OLED

Good day,

my zen v plus showed some strips then it eventually the screen went black? but i can still hear the music...

is this a faulty hardware subject to warranty replacement?


but then i accidentally dropped it and the screen cracked, i still can hear music, but after an hour no music was coming out from the player,

is this a still faulty hardware subject to warranty replacement? (
cause i saw this video when they threw a zen v plus and nothing happened)

is there any way to fix my zen, as long as i can hear the music, its OK to me, i dont mind fixing the screen because i think it impossible to get a screen replacement specially in my country, Philippines

    I bought mine online about 6 months ago. At first it wouldn't stay charged then those strips came a few days later my oled screen went black. Just need to know should I just trash it or what. Is it worth trying to fix. I can hear the music.

Honestly mate, i wouldn't even bother.the same thing happened to me, with the multi coloured strips and all, but with the strips i just pressed the scrrn and they didnt show, a week later the screen when black just like yours, but the music was still playing.
But as you said, aslong as it plays music who cares.
i know this isnt really a suggestion on who to wix it, but if it is still in the warrenty i'd take it back to the store you brought it from and get them to replace it(hopefully all the music you had on it is on you computer)
hope that helped

I have a Zen V plus , the screen has become really dark I can barley read it . what should I do?


Bad news. The Zen V Plus is known for screen problems - early warning signs include screen discoloration, lines on the screen or dimming. Eventually, the screen will go black.

Possible reasons include poorly-mounted screens, short life of OLED displays, and susceptibility of screens to damage from moisture.

Best bet for a replacement screen is buying a scrapped Zen V Plus on eBay. Here's a great guide to taking apart your Zen.

Zen V Is Totally Dead!


Check Creative's # to see if your are still in warranty

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.

try downloading the MP3 player recovery tool from Creative's website (the tool contains the latest firmware update available -- 1.15.03). Plug your ZV+ into your PC, run the program and let it update the firmware. Then format, reload your music and try it.
