Question about MP3 & Digital Media Players

2 Answers

Hello I was listening to my creative zen while I was recharging it. Unfortunately, I must have kicked the plug for the charger partly out of the wall socket. The battery ran down and I can't get the creative zen to recharge. Is there some way for me to recharge it or replace the battery. I don't want to buy a new one because of all the music I've put on this one. Thank you. Kathleen

You can charge it by plugging it to your computer with the USB cable.
If that does not work, the plug on the zen might be damaged.

Creative Zen V Plus will not charge using an adapter


Install the software included with the Creative Zen V Plus. Many problems with the MP3 player can be resolved by installing or updating the software included with the device. Use the CD that came with the player to make the install, or log on the Creative Zen V Plus product page on the company website to download the latest firmware:

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 zen 8gb wont switch on or recharge


I had the same problem. Tried recharging from both PC and mains recharger. Tried re-setting and re-charging. All I got was the blue charging light pulsing on and off. The ZEN would not charge. Eventually I tried a Software re-set. (Slide the on/off button to the On position and hold it there whilst hitting the re-set button). I then tried re-charging and everything was fine. (It did take about 10 - 15 mins recharing from the PC before the device did actually respond, but that is normal after it is fully discharged)

Cannot guarantee the above will work every time or for everyone, but it saved me returning it to Creative and an eight week wait.

Creative Zen Touch Harddisk Problem


was the unit dropped?
is the unit out of warranty?
if yes to both of these then you need to replace the drive
some have replaced with flash drives

I found this. *Plug the Creative Zen in to the charger and plug it in the wall. *Press in the Play/Pause (same button) and hold it in. *Insert a paper clip in to the pin hole on the left side of player, near the bottom. *Hold the needle or paper clip in for 4 seconds and let go. *Keep holding down the Play/Pause botton. What I did was clean up disk. Then Reboot.

Zen V is dead
"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."

Creative Zen Sleek Photo 20GB


It's probably too late for your nees but for future users, push a pin into the rest hole on the bottom of the player while AT THE SAME TIME holding down the play and power buttons. Yes, I know you need three hands to do this. That should bring up a recovery screen Try "Clean-up" on that screen.

Creative Zen M


Did you charge the unit over night? When they are brand new, the batteries are not always charged. See if the lights and screen come on when it is plugged into the charger. If so let it charge over night and try turning it on again. Otherwise, you should probably return the unit.
