Introduction

This guide demonstrates how to replace a screen. You will need a one mm Phillips head screwdriver. Keep in mind that the Creative Zen Vision was released in 2005 and discontinued shortly after that. So it may be difficult to obtain a new screen to use as a replacement.

Parts

No parts required.

  • Before prying open the case you first need to remove the plastic surround on the power button at the top and the data port at the bottom. Under these two small oval surrounds are two screws at each end which hold the case together. DO NOT TRY and pry open the case (as shown in the picture for the next step) until AFTER you have removed these screws
