Quick Fix for the ZEN V / PLUS Joystick




Introduction: Quick Fix for the ZEN V / PLUS Joystick

Somehow I broke the joystick on my Zen V/PLUS. So I searched for a fix and found nothing but an Instructable for disassembling it ( found here ). After taking it apart I cut a piece from the ink tube from an everyday 0.15¢ ink pen about 1/8", reamed it a bit with my pocket knife to enlarge the opening just a little so it'll fit snugly. Reassembled it, now I'm happy again!

i used to have one of these!!! do they still make this model?

To be honest I don't think they do, but there's always Ebay.

very true. i didnt think of that...lol. i used to have one when i was in college...in fact i had two...i had a 2 gb, then i upgraded to the one you have pictured here...is it a 4 gb?

I do believe it's a 4gb, I've also upgraded to a ipod 5gen.

i had an Ipod nano 4gen. i loved it till my wife threw it in the washer...then i wanted the 5th gen that had the camera...now i want the tiny 6th gen...lol
