Check the Lock button. Push it all the way to the right, then all the way to the left. I'm continually having to do that w/ mine, even when the orange Lock symbol ain't showing.
What do you mean by "tried to reset it"? By holding the Back button (on the left) and pressing the top of the Control Pad until you get the Zune logo?
Try these steps. They may work.

So i got my 120GB Zune from my friend and within the 2nd day i got this problem. I was listening to it and noticed the battery was getting low so i plugged it into my xbox360 to let it charge. about 1-2...


Try to find out if this has a "reset key", push it for 5 sec. If nothing happens, try to remove the battery if you can then put it back again..turn on. If this would still wont work, try to find out the compatible charger for this gadget. Thanks

My Zune HD won`t turn on, what do i do ? =]


Hold the power button for 10 seconds. this should cause reset. if it does not hold it again for 15 seconds this should cause it to power into repair mode where you will then need to plug it into your computer and update the firmware with the included software. hope this helps!

My ipod wont turn on or charge.


More than likely the battery just needs to be replaced. I let my nano go dead and it was doing the same thing. So just get it replaced and that should fix your problem.

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.

Zune


To reset the zune you must press and hold the back button and the top part of the zune pad. Other parts of the zune pad will not work.

When plugging the zune into your PC does the PC detect it (device manager -> portable devices). You should hear the ding sound of hardware connecting.

If it is connecting to the PC and is not detected by the software than it is likely a permissions problem. Right click the software icon and choose run as administrator.

If it is not detected by the PC than check your usb cable and make sure your zune is charged and not frozen.

Zune problem


Download and install the latest zune software from microsoft. Run the new zune software, plug your zune into the computer and it should prompt you to install the latest firmware automatically. This is all that is necessary with the majority of firmware problems.
