    What the **** is wrong with Zune

  • ptracey2112 Dec 31, 2008

    this morning my Zune was off. I had to hit the play/pause button a few times and the "Zune Bar" came on and I thought all was good. NOT. Now I cannot get the thing to turn off, turn on past the main Zune screen, the computer doesn't recognized that it's been plugged into it. The pack is warm, so I know it's on, but I cannot get anything to work. A couple of sites are springing up with all kinds of problems on today's date, calling it the Y2K of the Zune. HELP!!

My zune will not turn on


have a 30 GB Zune that crashed today while I was using it; all you need to do is press all the buttons on the front of the player for around ten seconds or so, and the logo will come onto the screen and the player will reboot. I believe the black screen means the Zune has crashed for some reason, but this method worked for me, so give it a try. (Mind you as well that I had it plugged into the computer at the time as well when I did this. But now it works just fine for me.)

Zune wont load


This is how this problem should be resolved:

  1. Disconnect your Zune from USB and AC power sources.
  2. Because the player is frozen, its battery will drain—this is good. Wait until the battery is empty and the screen goes black. If the battery was fully charged, this might take a couple of hours.
  3. Wait until after noon GMT on January 1, 2009 (that's 7 a.m. Eastern or 4 a.m. Pacific time).
  4. Connect your Zune to either a USB port on the back or your computer or to AC power using the Zune AC Adapter and let it charge.
I cannot believe the savvy programmers for Zune did not identify this problem in advance

Won't start


Sounds like a firmware issue or booting problem, you might have to reformat it then reinstall the zune firmware and reupload all you'r media to you'r zune.

Zune locked


Go look on zune.net and then click support. My zune just did the same thing a little bit earlier and I was worried so I went looking on the net and found these entries. Under support it says:

My Zune 30 is frozen on the boot screen, now what do I do?
You will need to reboot your device after noon GMT (that's 7 a.m. Eastern or 4 a.m. Pacific time) on Jan 1, 2009.
Please unplug your Zune (no AC or USB cables).
Because your Zune is frozen your device battery will begin draining, this is good.
The battery will eventually be fully depleted and the screen will go black.
After noon GMT on January 1 connect your AC power or USB cable such that the battery can begin charging again.
Once the Zune has enough battery to boot it should do so normally and you can go back to enjoying your Zune!

My Zune 30 has been working fine today, should I be worried?
Nope, your device is fine and will continue to work as long as you do not plug it into the PC before tomorrow.
If you plug your device into a PC before noon GMT Jan 1, 2009 your device clock will be set to the last day of the leap year and you will experience the freeze issue. If this happens, see above.
The PC that you plug into does not have to have the Zune software installed in order for your device clock to be set and the leap year bug to occur so you should avoid plugging your Zune 30 into any PC today.

What if I have DRM content on my Zune?
Your DRM content will most likely not be affected by this issue. However, it is a good idea to sync your device with your PC once the freeze has been resolved in order to ensure that all of your licenses are up to date.

What if I took the advice on the forums and hard reset my device by disconnecting the battery?
This is not a good idea and we do not recommend opening your device up yourself. However, if you already did it…
If you have DRM content on your device, your DRM store is now out of sync with your secure clock.
You will need to wait 24 hours from the time that you reset the device and then resync your DRM licenses from your PC.
Alternatively you can format your device and resync the content.

My 30 gb zune is frozen


There's a fix:

Your zune will need a "hard reset."

To do this, use a small screwdriver to pop off the plastic shielding where the zune cable plugs into and remove the two screws on either side of the plug. Next pop the cover off and locate the battery plug at the top left corner of the zune, using your screw driver, pop the cable connection half way off, and do this to the other plug on the right side. Wait 3 seconds, then push down the right connector and then the left battery connecter. Your zune should start up immediately. Press the backing of the zune down (make sure headphone jack is aligned) and put the screws and cover back in place.

It's an easy process but if you're unsure don't attempt it.
