    Same thing, got to 100% on the load as soon as I turned it on and I can't fix it.
    I've tried all of the different reset things and nothing will work.
    It's 30 gigs.

SOURCE: blinking screen turning on and off

Mine does this if I let the battery get too low. In order to fix it I have to open the case, unplug the hard drive, plug the zune into my laptop and let the battery charge for a couple of minutes. I then turn it back off, plug in the HD again, replace the case, and plug it back into my laptop and it boots just fine.

I Imagine this means I have a weak battery (trying to spin the HD drops it below minimum voltage), but maybe this'll help someone else get up and running again.

My Zune HD won`t turn on, what do i do ? =]


Hold the power button for 10 seconds. this should cause reset. if it does not hold it again for 15 seconds this should cause it to power into repair mode where you will then need to plug it into your computer and update the firmware with the included software. hope this helps!

Zune will not turn on


1. If the Zune device is not connected to a power source, set the Hold switch to unlocked. Then, press and hold the Play/Pause button to turn off the device. • If this does not work, restart the device. To restart the device, set the Hold switch to the unlocked position, and then press and hold the Back button zune_button_back.gif as you press the top of the Zune Pad. When the device begins to reset, you can release the buttons. 2. If the Zune device is connected to a power source, it is operating correctly. You cannot manually turn off the Zune device. Note Depending on how you configured your backlight setting, the backlight for the Zune device may automatically turn off in this situation. To access the backlight options, select display on the settings menu, and then press the center of the Zune pad. To adjust the setting, select backlight, and then press the center of the Zune pad.

My 30gig zune is froze and unresponsive. Please help


there is a "lock" button on the top on the left side make sure this switch is turned to off.
Try one or more of these solutions to resolve this problem:
  • The Zune may be locked. Move the hold switch to the unlocked position. It may help to move the switch back and forth. Then press the play/pause button for a second.
  • The battery may be drained.try recharging it
  • To reset your Zune, press and hold the back button while pressing up on the Zune pad. Resetting turns Zune off and on again.

My zune just stopped working


run the battery completey dead or you could possibly reset the device to factory default...

Try this....
Reset Zune: Press and hold the back button while pressing up on the control pad.
Connect Zune to a power source: If the Zune device is in sleep mode, this action will wake the Zune device and turn it on. If the battery does not have a charge, you may have to wait several minutes for the Zune device to turn on.

Also, make sure that the hold button on top of your zune is turned to the off position.

Hope this helps!

My Zune is Not responding


after much research on this matter in the past few hours. To resolve this situation don't shut the zune down by holding play/pause button it does not shut down properly that way.

Hold down the down & back button down until shuts off....zune recommends as the best way to turn off your zune. Also if you are having problems holding charge, a lot of people replaced the original charge plug and found that it worked again. these cables usually become faulty from previous models and 30gigs. So buy a new cable & shut it down correctly.

Still no worky??? Call zune, within 1 year they will accept it for repairs. They may even send you a new refurbished zune...since they no longer are making the 30 gig...probably for those reasons.

I hope this advice not only helps you but myself. Who wants an expensive paperweight...not I!

My zune wont turn on


I turned on my Zune and the screen froze so I turned it off but it would not turn back on.

I went online and read somewhere that if the screen freezes then you should press up and back and wait for the zune insignia to come on. Well my zune was not just frozen it would not go on but I tried the up and back thing and it worked. it took about 9-13 seconds but it worked so give it a chance and if that doesn't work try charging it overnight. Hope that helps :D
