Zune 30 gb broken "lock" button

The "lock" button on my Zune 30 broke off, and it was in the "lock" mode. Therefore I cannot use it at all because it has made all the buttons inoperable. It is going to cost over $120 to have it fixed by Zune. Is there anyway I can "unlock" it. I don't care if I can't "lock" it back again.

The Lock button came right out and the wires attached to it broke, right? If so, y'alls pfft.
or, if not...
Go to this website and follow Steps 1 thru 4 ONLY. Picture 4 of Step 4 shows the top of the device to the left and the headphone jack nearest you. The Lock button should be right below the top arrow on the left of Picture 4. To unlock it, slide the switch **away** from the headphone jack.

!!! Please note that this is all strictly assumptions on my part. I have *never* taken my 30gig apart and am strictly working from the pics & past experience w/ micro-electronics. Do Not Take My Words As Being Absolutely Correct !!!

My Zune 30GB Is Menuless...


Try this....
Reset Zune: Press and hold the back button while pressing up on the control pad.
Connect Zune to a power source: If the Zune device is in sleep mode, this action will wake the Zune device and turn it on. If the battery does not have a charge, you may have to wait several minutes for the Zune device to turn on.

Also, make sure that the hold button on top of your zune is turned to the off position.

Hope this helps!

30 gb zune can't get into program


Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard.

Make sure the hold/lock is not engaged

Make sure the OS is compatible

Either the device is bad, the pc port is bad, or the software is faulty. Try connecting to different usb port, then a usb port on a different pc with a compatible os. If still not recognized, then there is physical damage to player.

My Zune is Not responding


after much research on this matter in the past few hours. To resolve this situation don't shut the zune down by holding play/pause button it does not shut down properly that way.

Hold down the down & back button down until shuts off....zune recommends as the best way to turn off your zune. Also if you are having problems holding charge, a lot of people replaced the original charge plug and found that it worked again. these cables usually become faulty from previous models and 30gigs. So buy a new cable & shut it down correctly.

Still no worky??? Call zune, within 1 year they will accept it for repairs. They may even send you a new refurbished zune...since they no longer are making the 30 gig...probably for those reasons.

I hope this advice not only helps you but myself. Who wants an expensive paperweight...not I!
