After researching several blogs and forums on problems with previous versions of Zune
the general concensus was to allow the batteries to drain away and die completely,
and then try reconnecting.

This took about a day and a half, and when we connected the device to the PC
it must have "re-initialized" the controls as it booted up, all the features now worked.

Happy 18 year old, more importantly, Happy parent.

Hope that this helps......................

How to reset your zune fireware

If your zune (4, 8, 16, 80, or 120 gig) is starting to freeze more and more and wont load up all the way and uv tried reseting it multiple times and it still dose the same thing? i will tell you how to fix that sittuation.

first of i will have to warn you in doing this you are deleting EVERYTHING from your zune. remember you are at your own risk in doing this and i sugjest that you read the whole thing befor attempting to reset anything
if you are desperate or interested lets beging

step 1. wait for your zune to turn on wile its on you reset you zune
(hold the back button wile holding up on the touchpad)

step 2. once it starts to load the fireware (the screen will show the zune symbal and a loading bar at the bottom of the screen) you must hold the back botton, the senter of the touch pad and the play button. remember to hold all 3 of the buttons once the zune icon apears on your zune.
hold it until a speane apears that says "3 please wait" when that screen apears you can let go of the buttons.

step3 the zune will tehn say to open up zune program and plug your zune into your computer

tip. it is best to have the most updated zune software you can have on there. vistas may not ba able to have the MOST up todate software because of issues with the software on vista and zune 4.0

once you plug it in it will automatically start to download the zune fireware onto you zune. when it has finished uploading the fireware just go threw the zune steps. at this point you pretty much have a new zune. meaning you need to link it to your account on zune and name you zune and the most obvoius you need to re-upload your files and things onto you zune.

note you need an internet conection to download the fireware for you zune.

hope this will help you with your zune issues. this also help if you are desperate and forgot your password but note recomended if you have another option.

My 80 gig Zune will not boot correctly and freezes at screen 3 "Please Wait" displayed in english, french and spanish. Also it will not reboot by holding the back button and pressing the center...

Hi if your player is getting stuck on the 3 p lease wait screen you have a HD or HD ribbon issue. The HD ribbon can be replaced sometimes to fix the issue and other times the HD is going bad or has a bad sector in it.

If you need any more help, parts or your player repaired you can contact me threw my repair service web page at thanks

in order to fix this . you have to restart the device. to restart the device you press and hold back while also pressing and holding the top part of the zune pad until screen goes blank and zune logo appears this should work. if contact support comes back up try restoreing the device.

30 gig zune (white)

yes, it can be fixed. offers replacement screens for 89.99 and will even replace it themselves if you decide to send it in to them. at this point in time, you might be better off buying a new zune 30 (considering i got a brown one for my sister for about 60 off amazon over Christmas) or just saving up for an 80.
