Default Creative Zen Sleek Photo, Stuck on the Creative Logo screen?

Hi
Just bought a Creative Zen Sleek Photo, but when I first started it up, the player just got stuck on the Creative screen and nothing else happens.
What could be the problem or how can I fix it?
Hope someone can help me with this

Edit: I cant even turn the player off :S
I have tried reseting it, but it just restarts after the reset

Welcome baddie. It could be a power/battery issue. I would make sure that you have a full charge on the battery to help reduce any possible power related issues. Do you have an AC adapter to test with? With that said, it also sounds like you have a possible hardware issue/defective unit. Freezing at the Creative screen indicates a possible ROM/Mainboard issue. Since you just purchased it, I would consider returning or replacing if you can.

If it is turned off while plugged in charging, allow about double that time. Do you have an AC adapter that would work?

Yeah, give that a shot. Are you able to return it or get it replaced?

Yeah, I wouldn't blame you. Any chance you can get it replaced or have any kind of warranty? If not, I would look into replacing the battery.

Sh** that player really pissed me off, but its finally fixed, thanx bobby.
The problem was, that the HD wasnt connected correctly, I discovered that, when I was throwing it out, so I opened it just for curiosity
Now I got the player working finally

No problem. Did you have it opened recently to have the hard drive connection wrong or did it just work itself loose over time? Anyway, good to hear you have it back up and running good.

I never have opened the player, but it may have been, when I opened the package and couldn't wait to try it, and I accidentally dropped it

Yeah, that'll do it. Good thing the hard drive wasn't damaged. Enjoy your Zen!

Hey, no problem. Dropping and loosening the connection is quite common, so...
