Question about Microsoft Zune JS8-00001 Digital Media Player

Totally dead Zune!

My Zune is totally dead! Initially I thought it was due to a low battery but it won't charge on the CPU (it doesn't even recognize that anything is connected) nor will it charge with the wall adapter, won't even light up to show that it is charging. I have tried all of the suggestions here, i.e. different combinations of buttons, and still nothing. What to do?

    I have the same problem with my 30gb, at first it would just show a screen but the battery wouldn't charge. It would eventually say low battery then it would just die. Now it won't even power up or do anything. I saw on a website where you can replace the internal parts fairly cheap it was www.rapidrepair.com but if I can get away from doing that I would welcome any advice. Please email me at happy_2_be_here@hotmail.com

    Thanks for the suggestion vibilo but plugging my Zune into either my cpu or wall charger does nothing, the Zune doesn't light up to indicate that it is indeed charging nor does my cpu acknowledge that new hardware has been connected.



    Perhaps my Zune has bigger issues than the simple "leap year bug" and as a result I am sending it back (as it is still under warranty) where hopefully the Microsoft gurus will be able to remedy the situation or simply replace it.

If nothing seems to revive it, You most likely need a new logic board which can be replaced without problems. There are third party Zune repair services, that will fix it for cheap. Even better, I found an DYI Zune repair guide, soyoucan do it yourself too, not that difficult. Part is availableon Ebay. If you can't do it yourself, have a tech savy friend do itfor you.

It sounds like you guys might be suffering from the Infamous zune new year bug. Let your Zune completely die (leave it for a few days if you have to). After doing this plug it into a computer or wall out let to charge. Leave it to charge for at least an hour. Come back and unpluge the zune and reconnect it to a different usb port if possible. Let it continue to charge.

Letting it die should fix the freeze and swapping ports during the charge will help the computer detect the zune as when their batteries are 100% dead they do not have enough power to say that they are there.

Hopefully this will help out one or two of you.

Have your battery tested / charged.
Totally dead battery may take some extra time to charge being hooked to cables.
When a battery is "hard discharged" as you described...sometimes they never recover and require replacement.

If the phone was totally dead before it refused to charge initially, then the refusal to charge is due to the fact that there was no residual charge left to bring it to a charge, because the battery completely died.
To fix it, kick start the charging process.
Remove the battery, and using a universal charger (desktop charger) charge the battery for say 10 minutes, before re- inserting the battery to the phone and continuing with the normal charging process.
If this does not work out, then problem is with the charging port. It has to be replaced. This can be done by nearby local phone repairers.
Hope it helps?
Success.
