Zen v plus screen is black

I had a cracked screen with a Zen Vision M. Other than the screen, the player worked fine. My plans were to get the screen fixed as I thought that would be the best solution.

When I contacted Creative about a repair, they told me it was out of warranty. They wanted me to send it to them so they could assess the damages. I was told it would cost between $50-$100 depending on the problem, but would likely be the latter based on my description.

The choice is really up to you, but I bought a new mp3 player. A lot of new technology has came out since I bought this player 3 years ago, not to mention mp3 players are pretty affordable right now compared to when I last shopped.

My Creative Labs Zen Touch's Touchscreen doesnt work

How old is it? Does it light up at all or is it totally black? If the unit powers on and still plays music but the screen is black then it is just the screen. Plug it in to the computer and see if it is recognised. If it is see if you can look at the contents If you can't then either the battery is bad and it won't power up anymore or the unit itself is dead. Creative has had issues with their screens for a long time. I had a Zen Xtra 30GB that had screen issues after 1 year or so. They wanted too much to fix it so I put it away for a couple weeks. For some reason I decided to check it again and it started working again on its own. It also developed issues with holding a charge, and replacing the battery didn't help. In the end I replaced it with an iPod. Creative makes great products, but their warranty and support policy has become horrendous over recent years. They warranty their products for 90 days now, as opposed to the 1 year they used to have and when you have to RMA an out of warranty product they charge more than it is worth to fix.
One repair option is to look on Craigslist for a used one that may have a bad hard drive and use the parts from that to bring it back from the dead. They are fairly simple to work on.

Cheers and good luck.

Turn on problem and detect by PC

I had a similar problem yesterday with my Creative ZEN V 2GB. After charging it with the USB, it wouldn't turn back on. No lights or anything.
I read somewhere that if you hold down the power switch for a few seconds, and while holding down stick a pin or needle into the reset switch on the side, it will reset the player.
Amazingly, this did work for mine. It now powers on with no problems. Hope that helps.

Zen V Plus problems with brightness

Have you tried updating the firmware of your Zen V Plus? I've had mine for almost an year and haven't had these issues -- I updated the firmware as soon as I unpacked it.

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.

By the way, before updating the firmware, let the battery have a full charge, ok
