Unhappy External Loundspeaker on Zen X-Fi not working

Hi I don't know if any-one else has come across this problem or not, but I have had my Zen X-Fi for about 3 months now, it has been dropped a few times, but was in a silicon sleeve and had a screen protector on, all times I dropped it were out of my inner coat pocket whilst bending over to pick something up, there is no visible external damage to the player, but when i unplug the headphone jack and turn on the loudspeaker, nothing happens, yes the music is playing.
I have also tried contacting creative and they recommended i use the creative mp3 recovery software., this did fix the problem but i have tried it recently but to no avail.

Can any-one help?

If this doesn't prove that Tech Support at Creative only follows a script, nothing will.

More than likely, the last time you dropped your player, you either damaged the inside of your headphone jack, or you dislodged a wire connecting the speaker to the player's mainboard. Unless you are really handy with tools and a soldering iron - and don't mind voiding your warranty if you still have one, then I'm afraid your only option is to make repair arrangements with Creative.
