    Zune screen cracked

    As part of the exercise in frustration that applying the Invisible Shield was, I ended up with a crack in the glass screen of my Zune 80 Apparently the Zune pad is somehow connected with the glass inside the case, because when I applied a little too much pressure on it to smooth out air...

    Strange problem: only foobar plays audio

    MDR-V6 repair question
