busted zune lcd
« on: January 03, 2007, 11:38:05 AM »

Well, first, hello everyone. Needless to say I'm very upset. I have had my zune for about 3 days and I was jumping out of my turret here in Baghdad and landed on my cargo pocket, which my zune was in!!! I was wondering if anyone knew what I should do. I'm contemplating replacing the screen myself using the tutorial and purchasing the screen both from Ipodmods.com. But I'm looking for a cheaper screen. The one on their site is 150. I'm prepared to pay that much but it doesn't seem like it should be that expensive. Any ideas anyone?

First off, thanks for your service to our country.  Secondly, sorry to hear about your busted Zune.  I really can't give any solid advise on this, other than shopping around for a screen.

I think you should try you warranty although it does not cover that kind of malfunction. Maybe if you ask them nice enough and tell them you are serving for our country they will reconsider it. It does not hurt to try.

Hey guys, I had my wife call Zune customer support seeing that they don't have an email addy... of all ppl Microsoft has only one way of communication and thats on a telephone! Not even a tech chat or anything. I hate Microsoft more and more everyday... My wife told them my situation, even tried a sob story and all they could tell her was the would fix it, FOR 200 DOLLARS!@@#% Jeez, the thing only costs 250. Thats only part of the crappy part... Not only would it be 200 bucks I would have to ship it to her then they would ship it back to her because they don't do APO's i suppose. Some much for "Support our Troops." So I decided I'll bite the bullet, figuratively of course, for the time being and order myself a fancy little Creative Labs Zen Vision W!!! Those things look amazing! Anyways, I will probably sell my zune after I repair the screen, or maybe not, LOL... Thats the great thing of ebay, ppl will buy anything, broken or not! Thanks for the help guys!

just an idea ed. How about letting 250 members buy a shot at winning his broken zune?  With the money, you buy him a new one.  I'd send a buck for a chance to have spare parts and experiment.

I don't mind organizing that, if there's enough interest in such a drawing. $1 shot for a backup Zune - sounds pretty good to me! And get our guy in Baghdad back Zunin'.

Wellll.  I hope I"m not wrong about finding 248 more people willing to part with a $1 to help out a soldier & fellow Zuner.  400+ views and nobody else has said they're in.

Yes, I think we could set it up as a PayPal thing.

I would envision it where I would post a list of each member that contributes, so everyone would know it's on the up-and-up - - i.e. that I didn't collect $1,000 to buy a $250 replacement Zune.

Then I would randomly draw for the winner of the broken Zune - and send the new one to Bama.
