    I have the same problem. Have tried all of above. Nothing happens at all. Did the hold back and up. Did the move to bigger usb. Nothing is happening. My computer does nothing when I plug it in to it. The screen is black. Please tell me there is a way to fix it. Thank you in advance.


    oh boy, more info pleez!!

    Black screen and no response?
    Did you leave it charging for a full 3 hours?
    What is on the screen when you plug the Zune in?
    Did you try pushing the Lock button On, then Off?
    Press and hold the Play/Pause button until the Zune logo appears?
    Did it ever work for you at all?

Discichick. Neat nickname...

.. Well, the reset trick (back & up) won't work if there is no response **at all** on your Zune. I'd suggest you take a look at this article and try the steps listed there. Also, if you have a friend who has a Zune, borrow their sync cord to try & charge it up (buy a new one @ $20 +/-??). Or try charging it on a different computer.
.. Is the warranty still in effect? Then maybe get a Repair Order opened online or call Zune support to get it done (1-877-438-9863).
.. I think it may be the sync cord primarily, since your computer should detect the Zune whether it has a charge or not.
.. It also may be that the connector tab is broken (somehow) and thus nothing is gonna work right. Take a look inside the connector slot and see if the tab looks odd. Which is a dumb thing to say since I can't define "odd" in any way logical. Look see if it is not straight and aligned, I guess would be best.

Why does my car after driving on the interstate for about a half hour. if i take an exitand ave to stop my cr ill start chugging . and eventull wont stat n i wold hav o letit rstfor about an hour efor

If this is happening when it is hot out you might be having vapor lock. The hot aior turns the gas to vapor and the engin stalls. In a half hour it cools enough to go back to a liquid. While you on the highway the rushing air keeps the gas cool. Most car have something that trys to prevent it, The camery sends vapor back to the tank if the gas filter is orented right.

I put the ear plugs in and nothing happens.. not

To get the basics out of the way, is the volume turned up and not muted at all... if it's turned up then try another pair of headphones that you know work in something else or test these headphones in something else...( cd player, radio etc.) use a pair that you know work to retest your mp3. plug them in, turn it on and play a song the gently wiggle the end plugged into the player back and forth. If you hear a crackling or snippets of song, then it's probably the jack inside the player....try these things and get back.
PS. post the make and model of your player, it helps with problem identification

Reset the ipod. Using the computer and ipod. If you do not how to do it, follow the steps to it.

1. Connect the USB between the computer and ipod. Be sure to have the latest version of itunes

2. Go to the ipod summary and click restore. Be sure to back up everything.

Note: Because you need to reset the ipod. Any files will be erased. Be sure to backup any files, Like i said above on step 2. After it resets, you can put it back to normal.

3. After a couple of minutes waiting for ipod to reset to factory settings. Put the name on and customize your settings.

4. Now, you can put back files to the ipod so it is ready to use.

Note: It is not necessary to put a code. It is easier to pick a easy code than rather picking a hard code. Or don't pick a code for ipod.

Locked iPod

Use Itunes, and Restore to factory settings. this will remove any lock codes. It will also erase any files currently on the Ipod (Music or otherwise). Then just Resync with Itunes, and you should be back in buisness
