Dark screen for my creative zen?

This is my 2nd mp3 player (creative zen, 2gb) and after a while my screen just goes dark. I can't tell what songs are in my library or do anything else because I can't see whats going on. But, I can still hear music. Can you help me please?

    my screen is also dark and i can still hear music also, the inside of the screen looks scratched

    My daughter's Zen was stepped on and the screen has been dark since. I guess that means the display is cracked somewhere and needs to be replaced. How/where can I get that done? I've googled for an answer but I'm not finding anything.



    Thanks!

    The LCD display has gone out on my Zen V plus. The player still works just can not see my display? I purchased the player about a year ago.

    One day I plugged my zen v in and it just didnt light up. I hear fine but I cant see anything but vague vague light.

    Same problem here, music plays but can't see the screen at all. It's gone from bad to not being able to see it all.

    same problem, it looks impossible to fix becuase there is no screws or any way in getting into the inside. Looks like a lost cause....

  • Anonymous Mar 08, 2009

    same here. Nothing seems to work: recharging, rebooting, formatting... nothing. And I've had the stupid thing for only three months.

    the screen is totally dark. i can't read anything on it at all.

  • Anonymous Apr 20, 2009

    MY screen went almost completely dark with VERY little contrast, in light you can see nothing but in the dark you can somewhat see the images on the screen. It still functions fine aside from not being able to see ****.

  • zomg137 May 21, 2009

    I have the same problem, only this morning the music for me stopped working too. (after I clumsily dropped it while rushing to class...) I've had it for two years. It's been dropped several times in its lifetime, but I didn't even drop it or do anything to it when the screen went dark.

The previous poster is right; I do repairs on these all the time, and the most common problem is a cracked screen. The crack is on the back so you can't see it. The screen will need to be replaced.

    hi,I have a Zen Sone Plus with speaker,but the screen has gone so dark I can't see it unless I'm in complete darkness,
    and then it is still very difficult to see. Are there people who can repair this problem?
    Ps:I'm in the UK.

I have the exact same problem. I just got a new one, but it was a pain to have to put all the songs back on to it. You should probably bring it to an electric store or something and see if they can fix it.

It seems that you may need to have the lcd changed or reconnected. if it is going dark, it is probably that the screen is faulty and that is or has gone out on you. connie

No display

Hi
i think that a good firmware update would repair the problem
http://support.creative.com/Products/ProductDetails.aspx?catID=213&CatName=MP3+Players&subCatID=214&subCatName=ZEN&prodID=16999&prodName=ZEN
Make sure it's the good model and download the latest firmware
download it
connect your mp3 player and run the firmware updater
that should reset your mp3 player without erasing your song and display should be ok
Good luck

Dark mp3 screen

Check backlight settings in player settings. If everything looks good, it is a hardware issue that cannot be resolved without replacing the entire player.
