    Exact same problem. My son had his Gigabeat in his pocket when leaving school and when he got into the car the outer glass cracked as well as the LCD display itself. Any help in finding one would be appreciated....or even a repair center since Toshiba completed dropped this great product from a support standpoint.

    I didn't even sit on it or directly impact it.. the LCD just cracked and dumped its liquid... i think they need to shield it better in the next releases because i have been very careful yet it cracked.

    And the biggest problem is that i can't find a replacement.. i think i will have to go with any compatible LCD if there is any.

Find a cheap, used or defective gigabeat posted on ebay, buy it, and take out the LCD and replace your broken one

those lcd screens are made of very thin glas that is very easily broken and cracked, once this happens, you need to have the lcd completely replaced.

Gigabeat S Series firmware restore


I just solved the same problem yesterday. When you download the firmware, save it to yur desktop and burn a CD because the gigabeat won't get it unless there is an actual CD in the rom.

Now, connect the gigabeat to the computer and let the firmware install. The unit will automatically restart twice. Here's the tricky part. You have to hold down the start button on the device until you see the start screen. (It took awhile for me to figure that out!)

After I saw the start screen, I saw that all my files were there! YAY

Broken Display Screen


Sometimes you can find them on eBay, but they are expensive. I bought a used S30 and put the guts of my S60 in it, to overcome the same problem.

It is also very, very difficult to change the screen. Trust me. Buy an old one, which has a good screen but some other fault.

You could, of course, just change the hard drive and use the rest of the new one...

Gigabeat frozen!


Hi Lorna, Yeah I found my Gigabeat froze a few different times when I was getting used to it. Solution: at the bottom of player there is a little battery on/off switch - its tiny and black but you would have needed to switch it on to first use it. Well turn it off here for 10 seconds and the on again. This removes all power from the hard drive and circuits which occassionally freeze. Hope that helps
