    battery is too low to start. when connected to pc with usb for recharge, it starts up to the frozen screen. It won't recharge and it won't be recognized by pc. pressing play button when restarting doesn't work either.

    I tried this but it came to frozen screen. I then reset with needle and when was rebuilding library, I pressed the center button too. this went to the format screen and I was then able to get rid of the corrupted file by reformatting. Thanks for this posting;.

Hold the play button when turn it on and that will lead you to the recovery mode. run the format HD and then reboot, it will run like new. good luck.

If you already try both reset, then try doing a firmware update.

On computer try unplugging computer power cable, and if it is a laptop also remove battery, this sort out problems related with electrostatic charges on computer USB ports.

Screen display not working


Hi,

In my opinion, Replace battery & try again if its not working yet then check this is its working but display blan so then you have to change display of MP3 player.

Creative zen v plus start up screen freezes when switching on


I had this same exact problem. To solve it I plugged into the computer (if computer doesnt read it its ok ) then pressed the reset button for about 5 seconds. you should see a screen . Then press the play and power buttons on at the same time and you should get a recovery screen. You have three options. from ther you can rebooot and automatically upgrade the firmware after its been downloaded from the creative website. Please let me know if this helped you and write me back if you have more questions. Thank you , lahuntress

My Zen V Plus is really screwed up


Sounds like a similar problem I had today.

My Creative Zen V Plus wasn't recognised by my PC, then it wouldn't even switch on.

Following the solution of another similar problem on here I fixed it. Connect your Zen via USB to your computer and press the reset button. Should spring to life and start re-building your library. I am as I type adding new tracks to mine :))

Zen stone mp3 player not switching on


Mine was also completely dead, with the reset doing nothing! I held the vol+ and the Play button at the same time and it was good to go. Holding just the play button or the vol+ button didnt acheive anything. But as I held both together, It came back to life instantly and I havent had any problems with it (for a week so far).

Problem in functioning


"If your Zen V is dead, wont respond to anything, try this, plug it in to the computer, hold the power switch in the on position, THEN trigger the reset button, worked like a charm for mine, I had thought it a lost cause."

Freezing


Using the instructions below try Cleanup first, if that doesn't work... (if you have a backup of all your music on your computer), try the format option


This is from Creative's website:
Zen V Plus and Zen V
  1. Detach your player from the PC if it is connected, and turn off the player.
If the player stops responding, you can reset the player. To reset the player, gently
insert a thin object into the Reset hole located below the power switch.
2. Press and hold the Play button while powering on your player.
3. When the player displays the Creative logo, release the Play button.

It will display the following options:
Clean Up
Scans the player and removes invalid links from its music library.
Does not affect music files themselves.
Format (All) Caution! Erases all content!
Save a copy of your player's content before formatting.
Reload OS/ Firmware Caution! Erases your player's firmware.
DO NOT select the Reload Firmware option unless you have access to a PC and you have downloaded the necessary firmware to install.
Reboot Reboots the device.
