    I have it too on a 16gb model- tried the latest firmware upgrade- no good...

    switching to SONY- the sound is even better!

Your screen is cracked at its edges where it can't be seen.The cracks break electrical connections, which cause the lines on the screen. Have it repaired/replaced if its under warranty. If not, toss it, these players do not have enough structural support for their screens and will fail again if they are repaired. There is a reason ipods have metal bodies.

    This solution applies only to Zens that still play music.
