Unhappy Service not under warranty

Hi,


Like some other unfortunate, I charge my Zen with a phone charger, and now I have a dead device. My Zen is not under warranty anymore, and I wonder how much it would cost to fix it or should I simply fill my garbage can and buy a new one.

Anyone experience after warranty service from creative. Will I have to pay the same price as a refurbished ??

Thanks for advise

I charge my Zen with a phone charger, how is that supposed to damage it. I've had my Zen since February and the only time I hook it to the puter is to change music.

If the voltage is wrong it can damage the motherboard.You can buy another motherboard & replace it yourself.http://www.anythingbutipod.com/archi...n-vision-m.php

I would look on Ebay since that is where I get them from. I would buy a "broken" one that has say a bad screen but everything else works. some sellers have just the board This is a good price for one.I have made purchases from them. Good seller. http://cgi.ebay.com/Zen-Vision-M-Circuit-Board-USED-TESTED-FULLY-FUNCTIONAL_W0QQitemZ200344479053QQcmdZViewItemQQpt ZOther_MP3_Player_Accessories?hash=item2ea576254d& _trksid=p3911.c0.m14&_trkparms=72%3A570|66%3A2|65% 3A12|39%3A1|240%3A1318|301%3A1|293%3A1|294%3A50
