Question about Creative Labs Zen Nano Plus MP3 Player

My Zen Nano GB won't turn on

All of a sudden my Mp3 player just quit working. I have changed the battery 3 times and it hasn't turned on with any of them. Please let me know if there is something wrong with it that I can fix. Thank you

    I have the same problem. The Creative Labs Zen Nano won't turn on. Replaced the battery and that did not resolve the issue. I can still hook up to the pc and play the music, but of course, it is no good for portable usage.

You got a faulty main board. That's the board below the LCD and buttons circuit board.

Unfortunately, that problem is hard to troubleshoot. And even if you've discovered the faulty part(s) you'll have to find the exact part number (if you can find a replacement, probably a burnt diode or an embedded chip) and requires you to unsolder tiny parts and provided you had micro soldering skills. You have to use a lens though from time to time.

I fixed mine by exchangeing boards with Zen Nano's bought at surplus store. I bought three of them and I repaired two of them. One works well, while the other still has the problem with the main board as the PC won't recognize it. But I could still use it as a voice recorder, and load music from CD's by using its MP3 LINE IN ENCODING function.

If your player was supported by a warranty, I strongly suggest that you return your Zen Nano or have it fixed by Creative....

I updated my Sansa Clip yesterday when I got the regular reminder through the updater but now the volume is very low even when the slider is at max. The manual says it can be adjusted through the settings...


After a update the player needs to be reset. To reset the player:
1. Slide and hold the Power switch up for approximately 20 seconds.
2. Release the Power switch.
3. To turn the player on, slide the Power switch up then release instantly.

Jensen SMPV-2GBUB wont turn on or charge


How to get the Jensen mp3 to charge - model smpv-2gbub,

transparent-pixel._v42752373_.gifIgnore instructions that came with it - they don't work.

Here's how to charge - I discovered this with mine:
1.When computer is on and at windows screen, attach cable from computerto mp3player with mp3 turned player off. It will immediately show you aconnect screen on the mp3 player.

2. pressed the left side middle button twice - this will turn it on and go into music like you're playing a song.

3.Now turn the mp3 player on by switching the button on the right side ofthe device to the on position. It will suddenly show you it's charging- the battery on the front of the mp3 player will have a signal pulsingthrough it.

4. It will turn off after one minute. It's literallyhalf charged now. Strange I know. Repeat from step 1 and it will fullycharged.

If it doesn't fully charge after it turns itself offafter 1 minute the 2nd time, then repeat steps from 1, one more time,but this time when it turns itself off after a minute, still leave itconnected to the computer for 10 mins even though it looks like it'soff. Then disconnect it physically from computer, turn it on with theon button on the right side, press the left side middle button twiceand look at the battery on the screen - it should be fully charged now.

Barbie mp3 quit working


You have to change the battery. To do that you have to take that thing off on the back of the MP3 player and unscrew it to change the battery.

Won't play any songs.


I had this problem with my player (th 1101) when I was transferring songs from iMesh. After awhile I found out that even though I could listen to the files on the computer some wouldn't go on the mp3 player. Looked it up and there is an encoding on some tracks (preimium tracks they call it) that unless you pay for them they won't transfer off the computer (CD, MP3 players ect.). They also had free tracks that works just fine. Hope that helps

Creative Muvo TxFm 256Mb mp3 player


Try holding down the button for several seconds? If you just hit it for a second, it says "Please wait", but then the "please wait" message will go away, and the song will be paused. After the song is paused for a long time, it will eventually think you forgot about it and turn off to save battery life. Just keep holding the button until it actually turns off. I think it takes 3 seconds of holding the button down.
