I checked the battery and everything. but when i try to turn on my mp3 playre after i haven't used it for a while it won't do anything. I have to hold down the power buttom for like 10 minutes before it does anything and then when it does turn on the volume doesnt work, and it keeps on shutting off on its own. When i get it to work normally it only stays on for two minutes and then shuts off again and i have to do the same thing over and over again. And it seems fixed but then the next day it does the same thing all over again. Does anybody know how to fix that?
In my case I have a Zen Nano Plus 1GB.
It won't turn back on. I was really sad, but I found a way to restore it.
1) Go to creative and search for the Mass Storage driver, the file name is MStorage_PCDRV_LB_1_07_00_250.exe
2) Install it this software for updating Windows Drivers.
3) Go to creative and search for the software ZENNanoPlus_PCFW_L16_1_14_03.exe
4) Hold down the player's power button while connecting to PC USB port.
5) Run the software for recognizing Zen nano you just downloaded.
You shall see a ballon in windows task bar telling that it was found a new hardware.
Confirm all Windows installation wizards for this new device! Now you can release the player's power button.
6) When the device is found and recongnized, just format your player!

Sounds weird, try this. Hold down the menu and the select, (top and middle) buttons down at the same time. What this does is resets you iPod. It should reset and turn back on. After that try again to turn it off. If that doesn't work, you may have to back up your information in it and completly reboot your iPod. You can do that on itunes. And if that isn't it what it could be is that you are about due for a new battery. Worn batteries cause mp3 players to act up in a number of ways and not turing off is one of them that I have seen.
try plugging it to your computer in recovery mode, this should allow you to reinstall firmware, even if the previous install failed.(Search google
for zen nano plus recovery mode to find instructions.)
