Question about Creative Labs ZEN SLEEK MP3 Player

1 Answer

Water Damage, screen freezes, reset means rebuilding library.

Hey, My creative labs Zen Sleek 20gb got into difficulties last weekend at a festival when I found it a bit water logged. It still worked intially but then froze. It now stays froze in one of my music folders and when I reset it it starts again and goes to the're-building library' screen. After that it goes back to the same music foler and freezes again. Can anybody help me fix it or is it gone for good, if it is broke is it worth anything in parts? Thanks alot in advance!

Creative Zen Freezes on Rebuilding

My Zen locked when I turned it on. It wouldn't play the track the screen was on so I pressed the reset button and turned it on again. It was then still locked on the same track so I tried turning it off which then froze as it was shutting down. After another reset it went through the rebuild screen then locked again. I then used the above fix (pin in reset, then hold play and power switch down). Taking me into the kind of bios screen I formatted the contents. Then added my library again. It's now working fine.
This is the second Zen I've had because the first one had the same problem so I took it back without trying to fix it. Both times the problem occured when I had my Zen plugged into my car stereo auxiliary jack whilst switching the ignition on in my car. I can't understand why this would cause the problem but I'll avoid doing that in future.

2. Connect the power supply to the player.
3. Hold down the Play/Pause button while inserting a paper clip into the Reset hole
underneath your player, beside the data/power connector. Keep on holding the

HD for Zen Sleek Photo 20GB

Hitachi microdrives

What people have figured out is they can remove the uber expensive Hitachi drives, and replacing them with much cheaper (and lower capacity) CF cards.

Zen sleek frozen after trying to delete songs

Why does technology make you work for what you already paid good money for? Have you tried going into Recovery Mode? You do this by holding down the Play/Pause button while triggering the Reset button. Once there, you have four options. Try selecting Disk Cleanup and then Reboot. You might need to re-Sync a few things but it's worth a shot. Good luck.
