Question about Audio Players & Recorders
The part is available on ebay and there is a free repair guide for creative zens. I know only one third party place that repairs creative zen players. If you just want to get the music out you can stick the hard drive on an iPod video logic board (they are compatible) and use a utilty like sharepod to extract the music.

Not replaceable or orderable through manufacturer - must replace entire player. Call manufacturer to see if they will replace it. If you are feeling creative, you can order a broken version of your Mp3 player from eBay and try to glue the screen on yourself, but such actions void any POSSIBLE warranty - cracked screens are not usually covered under warranty because they are considered customer abuse.

Detach your player from the PC if it is connected, and turn off the player.
If the player stops responding, you can reset the player. To reset the player, gently
insert a thin object into the Reset hole located below the power switch. if that doesnt work try this:
I decided to open it up to check out the hard drive to see what kind I would need so I could try replacing it. The data plug that attaches to the hard drive itself was partially unplugged. So, I pushed it back in all the way, put it all back together again, and turned it on just to see if something different might happen. (I had it set in my mind that the hard drive failed and I would need a new one, so I didn't expect anything different to happen) And to my surprise, it worked just like new again
when you get it working
try downloading the MP3 player recovery tool from Creative's website (the tool contains the latest firmware update available -- 1.15.03). Plug your ZV+ into your PC, run the program and let it update the firmware. Then format, reload your music and try it.

Its only worth it for a 16GB or more. It costs $79.99 total to get a new screen installed. http://www.thegadgetdr.com/Creative-Zen-Repair-White-or-Cracked-LCD-Screen-p/rs-zen-lcd.htm
