    Had the same problem - flashing logo when connected to pc; no response from any combination of buttons when not connected to pc. Tried Microsoft customer support (had to call USA); no real initial help, bit suggected I cal back when with Zune. Thought that I would try new cable (just in case) - purchased for a little over £6 - and works fine now ! PC recognised Zune; battery charges fine; button work when unplugged from pc. Might just be lucky !

    The Zune Logo keeps flashing on and off. It does it without the battery in it as well. Anyone know? I also just replaced the motherboard so thats not the problem. Could it be my usb cord?

    I have the same problem. I actually could get my Zune to work in a power station, but it just flashes when connected to the computer. Rebooting didn't do anything. I went so far as to "reformat" which erased all my data and program off of the Zune so now I'm really stuck because only a connection to the computer can restore it.
    I'm ready for an IPOD I think.

IPhone 5 went though the wash, so gutted. After a quick google i put it in a sealed bag of rice. Just taken it out n plugged it in and apple logo starts flashing. Does this mean there is hope n it is not...

If the Apple logo keeps flashing and never does anything, it is most likely stuck in a boot loop. You can try reinstalling the OS by connecting it to your computer, but if that doesn't work, the boot loop is most likely caused by a hardware failure.

Have a zune 120g thqt displays a 5 and zune player with a X in the screen. And it says to contact support. It wont cut off or reset it wont do anything at all.

hold the back button and the up button until you see the Zune logo then release. if this doesnt work then you are going to have to reset your Zune....however this will loose all the data on the zune so your music/movies will be completely gone. you are going to need to press and hold the back and up button until the zune logo appears then hold the back,play/pause, and the center button until you see "please wait"
if this doesnt work you have some serious issue.Source(s):

My zune wont turn on it just has the back light on ive tried to plug it in re start it just nothing works yestur day the zune logo came on but then went right back to backlight and black screen

Try manually rebooting the Zune by holding the back button and the up direction on the pad for several seconds. Let go of the buttons when you see it restart.

My lg chocolate won't turn on, just keeps flashing the Verizon Logo

Flashing the logo means that the LCD is fine and kicking. You must get the phone's firmware reinstalled. The reason of flashing Verizon Logo is that it cant read or follow the instructions beyond the logo stage. So, give it the stuff to read or follow. Reinstall the firmware and you will find that everything moves smoothly.

Zune 30g brown STILL frozen on Logo

At this time, Microsoft still hasn't found a fix for it. They're having a lot of problems with the Zune 30 freezing up. Before you try to start a class action, at least give them some time to get you up & running again. They only found out about the problem on Tuesday. Starting a class action will only drive the prices up.
