ive had a creative zen mp3 player for about a year and up until this week its been great, however i used it the other day (worked fine) then put it on a shelf for a few days, came back to it yesterday and it wont turn on at all. ive tried leaving it on charge, resetting it but none of it seems to work, also the creative website doesnt have a support (or even a FAQ) section, so i thought id ask The Pit.
so, anyone have any advice? tackled this yourself?
thanks

Ah yeah, i have one and the same thing happened. My mum called up the help line or something and the person said to download some file. Then we had to install that file to the Zen which somehow made it work. I have no idea how it actually all happened, so just call the Creative line.

reinstall the firmware. just google it and it should redirect you to the right part of creative's website. if its a problem that the reset button wont solve then that will usually do it

Oh. Well i can't help you much then... mine quit working and i had to download some sort of file to make it work again. I suggest doing that. I think Creative has a number you can call. Get some info on what it is you have to download. Or just find the file on their site. I'm sure its there.

I stomped mine in a drunken rage that cracked the screen and broke the casing.

And it still freaking works fine.

Thanks for the advice. I'm going to put it, along with your other advice, into a book, the pages of which I will then use to wipe my ass.
