Hey, I had the exact same problem. It was so annoying and disturbing. Anyways one way you could fix this problem is to download and equalizer. Downloading this might help with your output sound. Another way might be to take the covering off the back of the speaker. The covering might have been in the way of the sound projection.

Internal Speaker not working properly suddenly. Hearing Ruptures along the voice.


If you have been using your computer with the audio on full you will probably have blown the speaker cones. An easy fix. Add some external speakers.

Zen Xtra Error Message When Creating Playlist


The only solution I know of is to reformat the hard drive. It's pretty time-intensive, but it does work. I use Notmad to back up the playlists. Once restored, they all work, even the ones that had initially failed.

I've never had the problem on my 60GB Zen Xtra (non-upgraded hard drive), only with my 120GB, so my naive guess is that the problem may be caused by the machine somehow not handling the extra hard drive space properly.

Also, both times it's happened, I've seen a warning sign: I usually have a lot of stuff loaded into "selected music", and when I add another album or two it partially clears the selections. And it does so in a weird way: only a few selections remain visible, yet it keeps playing at least some of the now-invisible selections.

I'm starting to think it's time to switch players, and maybe get something I can put the Rockbox OS on.

Nomad Zen Xtra Headphone Jack Fix


the precision screwdrivers do n't have enough torque to loosen the screws, so you have to get a longer screwdriver with a very small tip a #1 size . the longer shaft with bigger handle will allow for more torque to loosen the screws. please rate this

Music only coming out one speaker


If you're running xp or vista, you should download this firmware http://drivers.softpedia.com/progDownload/Creative-Zen-Touch-Firmware-21101-Download-14028.html first and see if that fixes the problem. If that doesn't cut it. It's a hardware problem probably with the headphone jack. You could either send it in and it'd probably take a while to fix and alot of complications and money and bla bla bla. or you could just invest in a new music player such as the new 80gb zune which is very great. or an ipod classic, or even another zen product (not recomended)

Headphone Jack


if you can get into it easily you can re-solder the point at which the contact is broken off the board. This is a common problem. If  you do not know how to solder, or are not good at opening these (it will void any remaining warranty) refer it to someone locally that does.

This sounds like it may be realted to the "Time Scaling" feature, which is part of the "EAX" settings. Disable EAX and/or the Time Scaling feature and see if this helps.

Audio Problems With MP3


First thing you wanna do is to try another set of headphones. If it still sounds muffled then theres a fault in the audio output section and these things are non user serviceable. Your gonna need to send back to the manufacturer. Good Luck
