Question about Creative Labs ZEN V Plus MP3 Player

Charging zen v plus

I initially charged my zen v plus from a usb port and it worked fine. i tried to charge from a wall charger (not a creative product) and after leaving it plugged in overnight, the battery was DIScharged. Is this a fixable problem - do i need a creative charger for some reason?

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 MP3 won't charge with mains adaptor


Don't worry that doesn't mean that your mp3 player is faulty, if there is any fault it is from the charger but since the usb charges it well, just continue to use it. It doesn't mean the player is faulty, IT HAPPENS.

Car charging


Sorry to not have a solution, but only to post that I have experienced the same problem trying to charge my Zen V Plus using an iGo adapter with a USB2 tip. I can't get my Zen to charge except when I use the wall charger or USB cable to PC. I'm as curious as you are about the reason why.

If the light is flashing, that means it's charging, but it's possible you're not getting enough charging current to really make a difference.
I would try charging the player with a wall charger (can you borrow a charger from a friend?)

Creative Zen M won't turn back on


There is a major bug in Firmware version 1.40.xx related to battery charging, and it will exhibit this behavior if there is not enough battery power available for your device to power up. You will need to upgrade your firmware to fix this.

There is a catch, however - your player will not power up on USB power alone, which poses a problem for firmware updating. You must obtain a DC wall charger, plug it into the player via the dongle. This will allow the device to turn on. Then you must plug into your computer's USB port. Do not worry - having both a wall charger and USB cable plugged in at the same time will not harm your player or your computer. This will allow your ZVM to remain powered up so you can update the firmwar

Have you only been attempting using a USB port to charge it? I just fixed my problem. I have a wall charger from the Creative Zen Touch that worked perfect on it when the USB didn't do a thing. Usually I'm able to charge it with my RAZR phone charger in the wall but that didn't work and neither did my computer charger via USB but I tried the old wall charger and it seemed to do the trick. If you don't have one, they have them on amazon, here is the link: http://www.amazon.com/Creative-Zen-Vision-Travel-Charger/dp/B000GWLL0K/ref=pd_bbs_sr_2/105-1441709-3982806?ie=UTF8&s=electronics&qid=1185509740&sr=8-2 or for the old one that I have: http://www.amazon.com/Travel-Charger-Creative-Touch-Vision/dp/B000H19KC6/ref=sr_1_3/105-1441709-3982806?ie=UTF8&s=automotive&qid=1185509930&sr=8-3 Hope this helps!
