Mine was like that outta the box. I had to send it in - something about the display being broken. The process took a month. Hopefully, that's not your problem, but if it is, start by heading to the Phillips website and look up your model number. There might be some good FAQs about what to do. Gooid luck!

My mp3 player's screen doesn't work


You may need to now reset the player, that may have been a bit much for it. To reset your Sansa Mp3 player. Slide and hold the Power switch up for approximately 20 seconds. Release the Power switch. To turn the player on, slide the Power switch up then release instantly. If that does not get your player working again, try and Format to clear any corrupt files that may be present.

Creative Zen M:vision - can't turn on/off, permanent blue light


Well, i didn't charge mine over night, was listening to it in the evening while doing some chores and all of a sudden it stopped playing, Blank screen and permanent Blue light. I tried to turn if off but it didn't respond so i left it. In the morning, it went off itself (guess the battery was low). So i connected to the computer and inserted the ZEN CD. As i was exploring the CD looking for a solution, then all of a sudden the screen came up with a note "Rebuilding..." after 5 secs it came on. With all my files intact! I hope this wud be helpful, You could give it a shot, after all there's nothing to loose!

My zen suddenly went blank!


Your device lockup isn't uncommon, and in most cases is easy to fix. You need a small paperclip or straight pin to reset the device. When you reset, be sure to hold it in and wait for the blue light to turn off. Once you power the unit back on, it will rebuild and should operate as normal.

Reseting my zune


Try to reset it. Press the back button (<-) and the up button ( above the Enter key) simultaneously. If this doesnt work, continue to press the back button with other directional buttons to see if this gives you a result.

Totally blank, cannot turn off


When your blue light does not blink, but is constantly on, this indicates hardware failure. It is most likely to be your motherboard that is corrupt and will need to be replaced. There are repair services that can replace your motherboard or offer to sell you a replacement motherboard. You should look into it.
