There can be a problem with charging connector of the unit that probably is not loose and nees to be solder, that why you have ths problem, if you can take it to a service center and let them check the fix the problem that will be better because the unit may need to be dismantle and solder some parts on it or some parts to be replace..

Good luck........

Maybe you overcharge it and maybe the main problem is the device itself not the battery. if you can find anything to test those batteries and your device then try the two batteries from the shop that you bought it and see if it works.

You might need to shock the device in order for it to charge again the battery.. in cellphones there is a device to shock the device, i just do not know if there is a device for your player.

Hi kjgiants,
Given below are some measures that you should try:

First, make sure the you are using the correct power adapter. Discharge your unit completely, by playing music till the unit will no longer turn on. Charge your unit for 8 hours, and test.

    Another reason could be:

    Unit does not detect the battery and is running on AC power only. You need
    to check and make sure that your battery polarity is correct making
    sure that positive goes to positive, and negative to negative.

Hi,

If the battery isn't charging the problem is with the charger.

Posted on Aug 26, 2008

  • Priya darshan Aug 26, 2008

    As you said the unit works fine with only the charger plugged in then polish the terminals of the unit with
    a dry cloth and make sure the terminals are clean. If the terminals are
    covered with oil from your skin or similar matter, this may cause poor
    contact and battery power may not be fully supplied to the player









    Also,
    polish the battery charger terminals with a dry cloth before charging
    the battery. If the terminals are covered with oil from your skin or
    similar matter, this may cause poor contact and the battery may not be
    fully charged.

IF you remove the battery does it function the same way? that would indicate that the battery is not connected into the circuit.. loose connection or broken wire.

  • Ekse Aug 26, 2008

    if you have another charger you could test that, incase the charger is wornout and doesn't provide enough power to charge the battery.



    also make sure the battery contacts are clean.

If the recharageable battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be worn out.Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles andwill lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% andgradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up at all. OR Thebattery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected the batterydrops off to zero capacity in a very short time.

Battery icon dont show.


Make sure that the battery makes firm contact with the charging connector. I had the same problem, but after cleaning the contacts and pressing the battery towards the contacts, it started working again. It may be necessary to put a thin piece of material between the back of the battery to increase the contact pressure of the battery and the charging connector

New Battery Charge?


This means your unit does not see the battery and is running on AC power only. You need to check and make sure that your battery polarity is correct making sure that positive goes to positive, and negative to negative. If you can attach some photos, that might help also.

Creative Labs Nomad Zen Extra Jukebox 30 GB not working


Uninstall everything from your PC, reboot, reinstall driver and the Explorer (I do not use MediaSource, only the Explorer).

If it didn't work out follow these steps:

1. Uninstall Creative Media Source and all related software.
2. Install the driver. In the installation CD the driver is usually in \Drivers\English
3. Turn on the Nomad an connect it to the PC.
4. Install MediaSource(the program requires that you have the nomad connected while installing)
5. Install MediaSource plugin
6. Try transferring files.

If you?re still running into problem know that there are other programs capable of handling MediaSource?s functions, such as - Portable Audio Devices Power Toy , NomadSync, Real player, and there?s also a Zen plugin for the Winamp.

Good luck!
