I fix these for a living, the number Five Error is usually the hard drive, sometimes the hard drive cable.

After replacing my zune LCD screen I got this message. I took the zune apart again and found that I did not properly replace the mother board ribbon. After properly replacing the ribbon, the zune worked fine. Hope this works.

I tried nearly everything to no avail.. just for the heck of it, I band my zune on my desk a few times and *poof* it started up just fine... yup, I pulled a Fonzie.

Can't make the problem worse!
