Make sure the firmware is up to date


Either the device is bad, the pc port is bad, or the software is faulty. Try connecting to different usb port, then a usb port on a different pc with a compatible os. If still not recognized, then there is physical damage to player.

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.

Wen i turn it on it says battery too low system shut down but wen i plug it in too charge it dosnt charge up it just says the same thing


Possible that the battery can be bad, so to confirm first check the charger adapter of the player and see if the voltage is good. If so let the player shuts down with the power fully OFF.
The set the charger ON for a full day and check the player to play. If the player fails then it is possible that the battery is faulty.
Try to open and check to confirm before you can replace.

I charge the MP3 player and it still shows "low battery" message.


There is a trick to charging the battery in these small mp3 players. It won't charge if it is turned on, and it won't charges if it's turned off. Here's what to do...
1. plug the player into your USB port. or wall charger
2. switch the player on using the mechanical switch (on the side)
3. turn it off by either holding down the play button, or selecting "System" from the menu
4. The screen will go black and the battery will begin charging.
That is if the battery is still chargeable after all this time. The battery may well require replacing.

Mine looked like that, however, it has 2 "on" buttons. The major one on the left. says on off. Put to on. Then the upper button on the right, is actually the on off/ push and hold for 3 sec. then wait, it should come right on.

When i plug my walkman up to the usb charger it says low battery please charge but it dosent charge


It may not seem it, but it actually is charging - it's just frozen. Keep it plugged in for a few minutes, and then look for the small "Reset" button on the bottom left corner of your mp3 player. You're going to need something very small to get at it (like a pin or sewing needle). That should fix your problem.

My mp3 player wont turn on, its frozen or something


Maybe the battery is dead, try to use a diiferent battery or charge it. You might as well try to clean the battery terminals just to make sure it's not just a loose contacts.

Creative zen battery indicator problem


Try to reset it. May be it stuck. On my Creative Zen Vision M I do reset by inserting a paper clip into a small hole near a dock connector. Good luck!

Only works when plugged into power source


The battery will charge when running from mains. If you leave it plugged in for 20 minutes and then unplug, use and note how long before it shuts off, recharge again for 40 minutes and repeat.It shuould last a lot longer after a 40 min charge. And if it only lasts a minute or so after the first charge then the battery needs replacing (sometimes it's cheaper to replace the player) if it doesn't work at alll after 20min charge then definatly battery gone.
