Creative Labs Zen V MP3 Player - Answered Questions & Fixed issues
When i turn the player
Back up all your music first. Then hold down the play button and power on your device. This should enter it into a recovery screen for factory settings.
I own a Zen V
is the Zen V Plus still working even as the display is barely readable?
From the look of things, the screen or inverter of your Zen V Plus is defective, that's why the display is faint. Also, it might be that the contrast was reduced to minimum accidentally.
Though it might be difficult, but check the display settings of your player and see if you can increase the contrast.
But if that's not the problem, then you might have to contact Zen via phone or e-mail and let them know if you can send it over for repairs. Or if its still under warranty, you can replace it for another.
This is because, the screen or inverter of your Zen V Plus is not available for sale, so that's why you have to contact the manufacturers of this player.
I wish you good luck.

Try and reset the player by inserting a pointed object inside the small hole, press and hold for 5-10 seconds to let the player reset. If this doesn't work then connect the player with the computer and let it charge. Please check this link for details---

After formatting mp3 player
after formatting mp3 player (it should be completely erase/blank and work as brand new)...hopefully you took the software off and placed in a temp file so that you can put it back right about now (this is very very important)...because if you did not...ummm....you will have a portable hard drive in your hands...(and you would need to find someone with the same type of mp3 to copy just their software not their audio/vids or photos....
FYI...formatting any mp3 (ipod/iriver/jwin or sony) always back the software up on temp file (so that you can reinstall after formatting
