Question about Creative Labs Zen Touch MP3 Player

1 Answer

Rogue Scroll-Button I accidentally spilled some coffee on my Zen, mostly on the screen and center scroll-button. I mopped it up as soon as possible, but now the scroll-button has a mind of its own, constantly skipping or rewinding songs, and sometimes menus jump all over the place. Any help would be greatly appreciated - please help.

You're probably going to have to replace the scroll-button assembly. Liquid damage is almost never repairable. Try googling the model number and the word "parts" if it's something you think you can handle. If not, consult a service shop.

Scrolling: move your finger clockwise to scroll up, and counterclockwise to scroll down.
Select/OK: center button
Menu: goes back to previous page. hold menu to go to main menu. you may chose what items you want in this menu under settings > main menu.
Music playback screen:
to fast forward, hold '<< or >>' OR press center button once, and use the dial. clockwise to go forwards, counter to go back. when done, wait, and the diamond will dissapear.
song ratings: Hit center twice then use the dial to enter amount of stars. is saved to iTunes next sync
Shuffle: three center clicks. can shuffle by album, or song. if it is off, it plays the playlist in order.
lyrics (If applicable): four clicks in is where you can view lyrics. if you do not have lyrics for a song input from itunes, four clicks will bring you back to the main song bar.
volume: simply rotate finger clockwise (+ vol) or counterclockwise (- vol). no Center button needed. must be in music screen. (aka, now playing.)
Hold switch: while active (orange showing) buttons and scroll wheel are deactivated to prevent accidental key clicks and volume changes.

As soon as i switch on the power the power is tripped


What exactly is tripping out? Most kitchens now have GFI recepticals. There is a small red button that pops out if the circuit detects moisture inside the electrical parts of the coffee maker. If that is tripping you may be able to simply dry out the coffee maker by turning it upside down and then blowing the switch and electronic controls with a hair dryer for a few minutes. Try the coffee maker is a receptical in the bedroom. If it doesn't trip there it is probably moisture caused by spilling a little water on the machine when you were filling it. If it trips the bedroom breaker, it is most likely a dead short in the machine. Normally it is not worth the labor and parts to repair this machine.

Coffee spilled on my Macbook


Hi. Was your macbook open at the time? If os, then the beverage may have gone deeply into the machine. There is some protection from a bit of the elements under the keyboard, but not waterproof protection. also speaker areas and between where the monitor meets the frame. Also the battery compartment and memory compartment are breachable as well. The service center will probably know moisture to a large degree has entered the chassis of your computer. I said probably because it obviously damaged the computer, hence the need for a service center. Coffee gets in there and really can create a problem. Especially if there was mild and sugar in it. Good luck to you. It may be OK. Pretty sure your hard drive is at least.

My Zen Mozaic is stuck on the start-up screen.


Never mind, I got it. I just let the battery drain all of the way and then charged it. It worked fine afterward.

Zen Touch 40GB Scroll Problem.


There is a circuit board under the touchpad that has probably gone bad. You should purchase a Zen Touch with some other problem like bad hard drive or broken screen, but that has a working touchpad, and swap the outer body for the working one.
