Question about Microsoft Zune JS8-00001 Digital Media Player
Ok i dropped my zune in water but got it out in seconds. I shook all the water out i could immediately and set it out to dry. about an hour later i went home and completely took it apart so it could dry thoroughly. It booted up and came to the home screen but then then the screen turned wierd colors and eventually blacked out but the zune was still on. Will buying a new screen solve my problem or do you think something else fryed?
It's hard to know for sure but my feeling is that if the screen has water damage it is probably not going to be the only thing damaged. It sounds like you did everything right to minimize the damage as far as not powering the unit back up until it had completely dried out. However moisture may still have been absorbed by or shorted out some of the other components.
Of course, there isn't any way to know for sure without actually looking at and troubleshooting the unit. You can try looking very careful at the circuit board(s) to see if you can see any obvious signs of water damage or damaged components. If not, then you can try replacing the LCD screen and see what happens.

Turn the Zune off, then push the left and up buttons as you keep it connected to the computer charger. That will hard reset the Zune. If it doesn't respond to the hard reset it is more likely you have motherboard issue, not a screen issue. Try to clean the corroded parts on the logic board. If that doesn't help, there are parts available on ebay, there is a zune repair guide that will show you how to replace the logic board.
