The below is a software fix, but if it doesn;t work, then you will have to get a replacement player - call the manufacturer for details:
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 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.

The screen on my zen v plus is broken and completely black so i've been using it as a shuffle and now i can't get back on the menu. is there any way to fix it ?


I'm not sure there is without replacing the screen, and that said I've never seen any spare screens around. I'm sure someone somewhere can probably get on though I'm not sure it would be worth the cost.

Please take a moment to rate my solution.
Thanks.

Zen v plus problem


If you don't mind losing your music that you stored (not too sure if you do lose your music, but just in case),
find the reset hole on the side of the player, below the power/hold switch, push it with a paper clip or something of that size.

If that doesn't work, wait for the battery to die completely, then charge and turn it back on.
