I am assuming you have the Zune dissasembled. If not email me and I will explain mike@zorfox.com. You first have to remove the hard drive. There are four screwws two at the top two at the bottom. This should allow you to release your drive. Now, this is I assume your problem. there is a white and black ribbon cable connector. The white part is stationary! Contrary to most laptop desighns. Find a thin device a knife tip will suffice as a last resort, but don't pry to hard it will break. Lift the black piece up, that will release the cable. Another thing about inserting the LCD ribbon cable you should know. There are slots on both sides of the white connector. This is where you insert the cable not above or below. Once done push down the black plastic retainer and the cable is secure. I assume you know the assemble portin since you have taking it aoart. Just reverse it. The connectors seems to be what stumps most people.

Good luck!

BTW Before you touch it discharge yourself to ground!!!! It takes VERY little static to ruin your components.

Hi if you are getting the error 5 contact support message your HD is going bad. You can try re loading the firmware but if that does not work then the HD will need to be replaced.

The screen may have failed or a connector is loose.

I can suggest replaceing the screen, but check the connections first allthought it may be a problem in the mainboard instead of the lcd not working.

My zune just shows a blank screen but its working i dont know what to do i tried draining the battery and charging it but still no luck


If the screen is black try reloading the firmware if you can. It that does not work then the ribbon on the LCD screen is damaged or the connection where the LCD ribbon and main board meets theres an issue there and one of them will most likely need to be replaced.

My 8 gb Zune's screen cracked how can i fix it?


It’s not easy to do, with the glass screen, but it can happen.
You can now get your cracked screen replaced by Microsoft. Previously, there was no avenue for doing this outside of do-it-yourself, void-your-warranty projects.
The price is $79.99 which includes shipping, both ways. This service covers replacement of the glass screen, the LCD display, or both.
Contact Microsoft support (877-GET-ZUNE) if you’re in need. It’s available for current Zune models; if you own an original 30GB you’ll have to go the DIY route.

Zune screen replaced... buttons not working except 'down'


take apart = bad; the hold/lock button was probably engaged - unlock it per the manual

Zune 80gb 2nd Gen...Broken outer screen.


Try PDASmart.com. The glass on my zune 80gb just broke as well, and this is the only place that offers a replacement.

Zune cracked screen.


I hope you still have warranty, if you dont; get angry at the place where you bought and theyll most likely get you a new one to keep their good name.

if that fails, do a drive-by paintball shooting at Bill Gates' house.

Broken Zune LCD screen


Hi,

I had same problem. After lots of research I got my screen from http://www.repairsuniverse.com.

The price of the screen was half the price of the previous post and they included full instructions how to fit which for me we're a god send!

Flashing Zune Logo


Had same problem - flashing logo when connected to pc; buttons not working when disconnected. Tried new cable (purchased for just over £6) - working fine now ! Maybe worth a try ?
