Question about Creative Labs Nomad Jukebox Zen Xtra MP3 Player

Maybe the battery's dead?

Hello, Well I've had my jukebox for almost a year now, and this is what's suddenly going on. Also, let me mention that when i got it, the person who sold it to me put a brand new battery in it for me (or so he says....). I had not touched the player for about three months, I just didn't have any time to use it. And so two days ago I tried to turn it on, but it wouldn't do anything, so i figured that the battery must have died over that time it was idle. i plug it into the wall, and everything works fine. I even upload some more music into it while it's plugged in. I let it sit over night to charge, but when I pick it up the next day it won't turn on again. However whenever it's in the wall it works perfect again, it'll be working great while in the wall but the second i take out the power cord it turns off. Perhaps the battery won't get a charge at all, or something. I don't know what's going on or how to fix it, any ideas? Is there a way to give the battery some kinda jump start? Thanks a lot for any advice in advance. I'm going from LA to NY and would really like to listen to some music on that long flight!

Hi, it could be of two reasons 1. internal charging circuitary is blown,it just show as if charging but actually no current for charging is fed in to the battery. 2.Battery is totally dead and it is impossible to get it done with the low current charger inside. According to my opinion the first one is more common since the unit is kept with battery and this complaint usually happens to camcorders,and i have corrected many charger circuitary with this problem. all the best my friend sreejith

This is a hit or miss procedure so do it at your own risk. It sometimes happens that your above mentioned batteries go dead and your charger doesnot recognize them and shows an open circuit or similar. to reveive these batteries you will need a 12v Lead acid battery. connect the -ve terminal to the -ve and +ve to the +ve for approx 6-10 secs to each cell individually the cells should be warm to the touch and not hot. At this pint you should connect them to your charger and it should start charging them. most of the time it works but it is not foolproof method.

All the lights on my dash kept coming on and going off for about 4 months. Then all of a sudden the car just died on me at a stop light. Now my battery is dead; but i've tried to crank it many tim

it could be the alternator . measure the output voltage across the battery with the engine running and car in neutral with hand brake on. It should at least 13.4 volts.
If it does then I would get the battery checked at a car battery place.
A car battery place could also check your alternator.

If you are stranded at the lights suggest calling a mobile car battery replacement person or a road assist company if you are a member of one.

They can jumper a temporary mobile battery across your battery to get car out of traffic stream !

Won't turn on.

"If your Zen 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."
