I'll give em a ring, thanx
just wish i knew where to find a replacement screen! i'd be perfectly happy to do it myself if i could find the parts..... otherwise, i'll probably get charged like 20-30 quid for an mp3 player that only cost me 45!

Thanks for your help, have some rep

it would seem this is your part number mate dvp-fl0001 lcd screen

there are a few on ebay 40 odd quid lol and a couple of other sites around 20-25 quid/euros

prob cheaper than creative themselves

thanks for that dude, very helpful (unlike the guy that gave a google link..... coz i haven't thought to google it first?!)

I may just have to accept my player's gone since i really don't wanna spend 40quid repairing something that only cost me that in the first place!

Unless Creative UK is far less scummy than their US branch, forget them as a source for out of warranty repair. They just quoted me $224 to fix the screen on my X-Fi 32gb, which sells for $250ish new.
