Re: broken screen

Might be easier to swap hard disks rather than screens. Usually, Connect to PC indicates a faulty hard disk.

This can be checked as follows:

Connect HDD player to mains adaptor and plug in.

Connect to PC.

As player starts up, press and hold "Power On" and "Vol +" at the same time until screen goes blank.

Quickly press and hold "Vol -" until PC recognises player as a removable drive.

If the player shows up and allows access as a removable drive (E: F: G: H:.... etc) then the drive is ok, and the unit probably has a corrupt firmware, which can be corrected.

If the player shows as a removable drive but you get an error when trying to access it via "My Computer" , then the hard disk is probably faulty.

Back cover removal:

You need to make sure the two black screws either side of the connector have been taken out.

The back panel has clips on both sides.

Volume side - 1 at the bottom, and 1 next to the volume control

Opposite side - 1 at the top and 1 at the bottom.

Try sliding a metal strip ( about 5mm wide) in at these points.

If the strip doesn't slide in, gently lever the casing apart at the corner with a flat blade screwdriver.
Hard Disk Removal: Undo the four screws in the corners of the metal plate, and gently remove the plate and the connector surround. Gently lift out the hard disk by pulling the blue rubber protector upwards on the opposite end to the hard disk connection. Gently pull the hard disk away from the connection by pulling slightly one side at a time. Swap drives and re-assemble.

no available replacement part in market but you might find a knowledgable electronics technician who may have kept a faulty/defective similar player but with a good working may ask him to swap it with your broken screen for a price.

Replaced lcd get white screen

If you bought the new 'super bright' lcd for ipods then this is the problem. The new 'super bright' lcds for sale on ebay are only for 6th gen ipods. Buy a 5th gen lcd and all problems will be solved.

ZEN VISION W LCD screen broken

It does not worth it. It's better you change its LCD.
It's original LCD is Samsung LTG430WQ-F02. But it is hard to find at cheap price.
But you can also change it with Sharp LCD screen which is spare part for the Playstation Portable (PSP 1000).
I bought one from ebay for 15 USD , replace, It is working great.
Search in ebay : "sharp lcd psp 1000"

Broken screen

Susan try ebay, I have seen screens for sale, but not very often, best bet would be to bid on one that does not work, but has a good screen, then you can swap screens over.
I have written instructions (with photos) on how to replace, which I will gladly email to you.

Broken screen

Probably better to have half a screen rather than opening up and replacing the screen with another one from a faulty unit bought on ebay.

It is very difficult to open these devices without damaging the casing,
