    I just got my Zen Vision new out of the box and it won't turn on at all. The screen is black and it does nothing. I tried the re-set button and nothing. Someone Help Please.

    having the same problem

    I had the same problem when I got mine - you have to buy the rapid charger, which doesn't come with it. I found this out by going to a forum on Amazon. Once we charged it using this charger I had no problems charging it.

    Be careful, once you get it charged not to close the Media Organizer with the Zen connected, or you might end up with the infamous black screen. Unplug the Zen before x-ing out the organizer.

    Good luck!

I had the same problem - you have to get the rapid charger for the initial charge, and unfortunately that doesn't come with the unit. Once you first charge it, you'll be set to go.

Did you charge the unit over night? When they are brand new, the batteries are not always charged. See if the lights and screen come on when it is plugged into the charger. If so let it charge over night and try turning it on again. Otherwise, you should probably return the unit.

Creative Zen Vision M 30GB wont turn on

Problem could be the combination of a bug that causes the device to freeze and the battery running out. If...
- the player won't turn on
- the player won't connect to PC
- the standard reset action won't work,

plugging the player in the AC charger may pull up the recovery screen which will allow you to proceed and reboot, provided the player has no other eg hardware issues.

Don't buy this unit. The power system is prone to being blown out when disconnecting from USB. I've blown out two. I'm on my third. BAD DESIGN. AVOID IT!
