Thread: Creative Zen Vision M Battery not charg

    reative Zen Vision M Battery not charging

    I plugged my Zen into the computer as normal and copied some music across. The charging sign on the USB was not coming up, but I thought nothing of it. I left it to sync overnight, in the morning when I disconnected it the battery was flat. Now when I plug the charger in the battery shows a mains plug on it as if it is fully charged, but the soon as I disconnect it, it turns off as the battery is totally flat. I have tried a battery from another one which I know was working before, the same happens. I remember with my old Zen extra, I connected the charger directly to the battery to give it a bit of life, then it worked fine. Has anyone done that with the Vision M, if so which lead is which on the battery? I hope the charging circuit is not damaged, having a portable MP3 player that only works off the mains defeats the object of portable music.

    Thanks, but resetting does not work as the battery has no charge. All it does is cause a system rebuild.

    http://cgi.ebay.com/Zen-Vision-M-Bat...QQcmdZViewItemYou could have a loose connector motherboard issue, or the battery my need replacement. I'd start with the battery itself. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=akJDRpx6rA8 Only get an OEM battery or one from a reliable source.
