Horizontal Line Across the screen

Your Zen got bashed. or at least the screen suffered some violent movement and shifted on its moorings. To make it simple... all around the perimeter of the LCD screen, there are electrical contacts for HORIZ and VERT signals which come thru tiny ribbon cable (looks like copper colored ribbon but actually is flat mylar with wire laminations inside) anyway, these are either socketed, soldered or have pressure contacts which make the connection and give you colors in the right places. The connector for an entire HORIZ row came loose, got bent or broke. The only fix is to locate it and either resolder it (difficult without a 'needlepoint soldering iron), reshape that single contact so the right part of the display (HORIZ connection cable) touches its pad again, or replace the display,, socket, or its cabling. I have one with bad HDD but everything else is OK (Display too) which I can sell you cheap. All you'd have to do is pull your HDD, install it in my old Zen, and go.

My creative zen vision m screen

I don't think people on here are allowed to advertise directly for their services. There are several websites on Google if you search under "zen repair." Also if you scroll down a bit you will see a little box on this page that says "Repair Service." Just put in your zip code to search for repair services near you.
