Default Fixed!

Ok so after many attempts to fix whatever was wrong I gave up on my unit and replaced it with a used one off of ebay for about $10. I decided to troubleshoot my broken zen by comparing it to the working one i received, but was unable to notice any serious physical damage except the usb connectors on the broken zen looked disconnected from the board.

I then decided to try a mix of the different boards ex. the broken zen sound board (that has the usb) and the working zen main board. I was now able to charge the zen, but wasn't able to connect to a PC. So I proceeded to use both working boards and had a working zen. I decided to used my original outer shell since the previous owner of the working zen had not properly taken care of his and the touch pad lost a lot of sensitivity.

I tried to salvage the other zen to use so i could charge the spare battery but not having any luck. Other than that My Zen is alive bigger and badder than ever since i now have a spare battery, charger, and case. All of which my original zen never came with. I hope that maybe my post can help some one out there with a dead zen. My route was long but for $10 and to step out of your comfort zone with opening up your zen you could fix any problem with it. Good luck and long live the Zen Micro.
