Re: Doesnt work... at all

The battery on these units dies after so many recharges. You most likely need to replace the battery. It's not difficult and you can usually find replacement batteries on E-Bay for around $20.

My zen's screen wont turn on

i'm assuming you pushed the reset button at the bottom already. does it seem like it is booting (does the hard drive spin, the head move?) if nothings moves or spins i'm assuming you have a defective logic board. there is a creative zen repair guide that shows you how to do that, the part is on ebay.

My zune doesnt turn on and when i try connecting to my computer at times it doesnt recognize it and when it recognises it the battery shows empty and begins to charge when charge is complete and i unplugg...

If you had this Zune for a long time this will happen at times because the batteries are rechargeable instead of batteries but if it doesn't turn on you could reset it by pressing the middle button and pressing the up button at the same time.

Have you tried resetting it? Press the center (Select) button and the Menu button at the same time and hold for at least 10 seconds or until you see it reset.

Try manually reseting the player:

press and hold the Select button while pressing the Volume Up (+) buttons simultaneously.

Also, after doing so, try connecting it to the computer, and leaving it for about 5 mins to see if you can get a charge. Then turn it on, if that works, you just need to charge your battery.

if that doesn't work, return and exchange it since you just bought it.
