Zune 80 GB - Won't Charge

I have an 80 GB Zune (black) 2 days ago the Zune play/pause button was not working and then the Zune was only charging to half power, instead of full power. Then the charging was on and off. When it charges (when ther's no power left) you should see a black screen with a large lit battery and a lightning bolt symbol in the middle of it to let you know it's charging. But it kept going from that to a large battery with a red line at the bottom of it (that means it's not charging) and now the screen is just balck. I alternated between my ac adapter and the usb ports and nothing works the screen is still balck with no sign of charging. I went on for help but not of their insructions helped at all. Can you please help me.

    My 80gb Zune developed the same problem and while looking for answers, the closest thing I found was your question... I sure would like to know what the problem is...

    I just updated it to the new software today, then began experiencing issues and I have a sneaking suspicion the two events are connected.

Cant get black device to play

Does the device turn on at all?
If it does then turn it off open the device (as in break open the device to reveal the circuitry), and check to see if the connections are not torn or something. If not and it is not working then only two things:
1. (Doesn't turn on at all)Battery is broken or circuit board is fried OR
2. Speaker has blown.
I think (not really sure about it), but if you can call the makers and ask them a way to get replacement?? Maybe. But have a nice day.

Battery not charging, how to I reset it?

If thelaptop battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be worn out.Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles andwill lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% andgradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up at all. OR Thebattery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected the batterydrops off to zero capacity in a very short time. If the battery drops to anunacceptable charge level then the battery needs to be replaced.

Heyy mates i got the Logitech x540 speakers not long ago they are great but when i put them into my tv to play ps3 or to watch movies they all work but when i plug them into my computer witch is a...

I'm not sure if your computer is a desktop computer or a laptop.
If it is a laptop, you may click on the matrix button to enable virtual surround on the remote.

If it is a desktop computer, you need to plug more than only the green cable. You need the black cable for the rear speakers and the orange for the center and subwoofer.

You may need to set the speaker to 5.1 in windows 7 in the control panel.
You can also just activate the matrix mode for stereo source like music.
