Red face Broken ZVM needed

Hello, don't know if its allowed or not, but I'm in need of a broken ZVM with a good mother board and maybe in good cosmetic condition. I had a component blow up on the mother board of mine, surprisingly it still partially works, but completely fix it, it needs a new board. I have been trying ebay, but its impossible to get a good bid in.

Thanks for any help you can give.

Welcome VoodooProductions. If you don't want to try eBay, you can always check out the ABI Classifieds here every now and then. You can also try googling "zen parts" to see some sites that may sell ZVM parts.

Depends on what component he is referring too and what condition the PCB is in if soldering would even help.

Opps forgot I posted up hear, I have been looking at many on ebay, but haven't yet found a good deal. venality how much would you sell yours for, I have the HDD for mine, if you don't see this I'll try to send you a PM. As far soldering small things, I can do it but don't like to if you know what I mean.

ZVM's are still in high demand, including as-is units for their parts. This is reflected on eBay ZVM sales all the time.

its going to be more of a pita for the battery terminal was cracked off, and then i tried to resolder it, it worked, than my headphone jack died so i soldered that back up 100% and then epoxied it. and while i was doing that my previous soldering for the battery terminal failed and i was too twitchy and melted off one of the tabs on the motherboard so i have no idea where to resolder the white wire..

Ya I don't think I'm that at ease with my soldering. Still looking for a ZVM, the ones on ebay are selling for little more than I'm willing to pay.

If you're up for it, this may help.
