    We down loaded some videos to the Mp3 player and now we get a blank

    screen. When we reset the Creative and Zen logos come up and then nothing.

    same..
    I guess that's the zen's weak spot.
    if a i don't think this is fixable (I'm trading it in in the shop for a new one) but if a solution comes up, let me know.

Connection issue where snsa dies and restarts


I had this problem a few months ago, what is wrong is, you have a bad driver, something that you can do is switch the USB mode, this should work. If you have tried to the driver and switch the USB mode and it still doesn't work, then let me know.

Good Luck,

Blank


Triple Reset for Philips’ GoGear:

Disconnect the Go Gear from computer. Press the reset pinhole until the player turns 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 Wizard. If this pop-up does not appear, reset the player again WHILE connected to the computer. Open the Philips Device Manager, and go to Repair Tab. Reset the player one more time while connected to computer. Follow the repair instructions.

After repair is complete, upgrade the firmware for this player. Will erase all the songs, but you should be good to go again.

Your flash memory has become corrupted.. only the manufacturer can repair..I wouldn't try to reformat it...Never force it to run after it has shutdown from low battery. Don't leave it in high heat environment..You could try to connect it to your pc with the power switch in the off position let it charge fully and then before you disconnect turn the power switch on on the player..If thatdoesn't work make sure you are using the pc that connected to the player originally and plug the player with the power switch on and restart your pc. Good luck

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."

Sansa e250 won't turn on


Worked for me too.

I just plugged connected my e260 via synch cord to my PC and imdiately changed my mind, unplugging it. Froze it with green connecting arrows, but no "connecting" title at the top. Upon pressing the power button, the device screen went blank as if off (but I could just barely see that it was still on).

Pulling the battery worked to reset it. It restarted when I turned it on again and is now synching.

Does not work


I have the sleek photo and mine bugged out. It would go to the splash screen and then go blank and just sit there. Nothing would respond. I tried reset, reboot and other things too. My pc also would not recognize the player. To make a long story short, I tried other suggestions I found on the web. They didn't work and my player would now only go to a garbled splash screen and go right to the recovery screen.


I had the new firmware, but I couldn't use it because the pc wouldn't detect the goofy player. Then I ran across a site that mentioned that Windows Media Player can cause player recognition problems. I removed both WMP (mine was 11) and WMP runtime using the add/remove programs option on the control panel. I restarted the pc and BAM! the player was now recognized. I ran the new firmware application and the player works fine now. The key for me was getting rid of WMP and the WMP runtime.

Blank Screen After Database tries to refresh


If you tried everything you could then Format the player. It will erase everything and will Very much fix anything wrong with the player. To do That go to start>my computer>Mp3's Drive. Probably a Letter like (F:) or (G:) which ever the mp3's drive is. Then Right Click on the Drive and Click Format. it will ask if you want to format, as it will erase everything. Click yes and perform a "quick format" when done. safely disconnect from the computer and restart. then load the songs. It should work then. Hoppe this worlks. :]
