Hold the on/off switch in the on position as if you were turning the unit on then press the reset button with a paper clip next to the dock connector. Let go of the on/off switch and the player should reboot in the Recovery Mode. First try doing a disc cleanup to see if it resolves your issue. Next try doing the reload firmware from the recovery mode screen. If that still doesn't work and you don't mind having to re-copy your music to the player then try to format all.

It also sounds like your battery has died. Here is a link to buy a replacement battery: http://www.ipods99.com/ProductDetails.asp?ProductCode=CLZENVISION

Iphone will not turn on! Shows Apple logo then fades out?


Leave the phone plugged into the car charger with the "plug into itunes" screen long enough to build a charge. It sounds like the phone is dying before it gets a chance to connect to itunes and start charging through the computer. If this does not work then the store clerk was correct and your battery will need replacing

I have a creative zen m vision which is not working if I try to reload firmware I get a message harddidk problem - how do I proceed


1 HD damage could be done when you drop the Zen and you hear noises inside, some times the display just shows the Creative logo and no more.
2 the display just show the Creative logo, no noises inside, you can tray to put in Recovery mode as mentioned in the other solution and then erase firmware then reload firmware, this firmware can be downloaded form creative page,http://us.creative.com/support/downloads/download.asp?MainCategory=213&nRegionFK=&nCountryFK=&nLanguageFK=&sOSName=Windows+XP&region=1&P
However
Before you go to all that trouble though try these steps:

1. Connect the device to the wall charger.
2. Hold the power switch to ON.
3. Put a paper clip into the reset hole.
4. Continue holding the power switch on until the Creative logo appears.
5. Select Format All from the Recovery Mode menu. (Note: THIS WILL ERASE ALL DATA FROM YOUR DEVICE! - but it's better than buying a new device)
6. When the reformatting is done, select Reboot from the Recovery Mode menu.

Creative zen vision :m 30gb wont turn on


if you don't have the kind of charger that goes directly into the dock connector, the zen vision needs a 5V charger ( it happens to be compatible with the PSP charger). if you just plug it into a usb cord it will not charger. you may also need the little white adapter piece the goes into the dock connector. i know only one place that sells older creative zen accessories and repairs creative zen visions . if you have all of that: i assume you pressed the little reset button on the bottom, it may just be frozen? if that doesn't work and you are sure you're charging it right, your logic board is dead.

Creative Vision: M Won't Power Up


I had a similar problem with my Zen Vision: M. I had let it sit for awhile and the battery lost all power. It wouldn't charge or connect to the computer. After fighting with customer support for a long time they agreed to have it shipped in for service. I also was not able to find my receipt to send them. But I bought it at Circuit City and they are able to pull up any receipt for any purchase made with them. I suppose you could always try to try that with the retailer you purchased the device from. Before you go to all that trouble though try these steps: 1. Connect the device to the wall charger. 2. Hold the power switch to ON. 3. Put a paper clip into the reset hole. 4. Continue holding the power switch on until the Creative logo appears. 5. Select Format All from the Recovery Mode menu. (Note: THIS WILL ERASE ALL DATA FROM YOUR DEVICE! - but it's better than buying a new device) 6. When the reformatting is done, select Reboot from the Recovery Mode menu. Let me know what the results are from this.
