Question about Microsoft Zune JS8-00001 Digital Media Player

1 Answer

Zune just bricked with a full battery

My 80Gb Zune just died right in the middle of a song and is now black as if it's dead. It had a full battery and is about 7 months old.

When I plugged it into my PC I got a clicking noise in the headphones meaning I believe it's recognized the power (USB) but the screen still didn't turn on.

The back-arrow+nav button trick did nothing and I can't simply power it back on. The Zune software also doesn't recognize it when it's plugged in.

It's never been wet or dropped, there's hardly a mark on it and I take very good care of the device. Are these prone to just randomly dying???

    Well, being 7 months old I doubt I can take it anywhere without paying to have it repaired (of course, the spiteful side of me refuses after already paying $225 for this once).

It is known to happen. Electronical devices are made very cheaply these days as I'm sure you know. The capacitors in the circuits and also the firmware, only have about 1/4 -1/2 the lifetime as the old school stuff.
I would bring it in to carrier

80Gb Zune battery


Since your Zune is old and you have charged it more then a couple hundred times, your battery is loosing charge and so the only way to fix it is obviously buying a new battery. Zune 120GB owner.

Zune 80 gig will not start


My 80 Zune has a frozen screen as well... This is ludicrous! Well this is how this problem should be resolved:

  1. Disconnect your Zune from USB and AC power sources.
  2. Because the player is frozen, its battery will drain—this is good. Wait until the battery is empty and the screen goes black. If the battery was fully charged, this might take a couple of hours.
  3. Wait until after noon GMT on January 1, 2009 (that's 7 a.m. Eastern or 4 a.m. Pacific time).
  4. Connect your Zune to either a USB port on the back or your computer or to AC power using the Zune AC Adapter and let it charge.
I cannot believe the savvy programmers for Zune did not identify this problem in advance... Well I guess we are all human lol... Can't wait to begin listening to my music again!

Have a Happy New Year!

My zune stopped working and now will not turn on


I figured out the solution by just getting upset.
Hold the Back arrow (<-) and Up on the touch pad and it will restart the Zune. This works for the 8gig and 80gig Zune.

TRYING TO INSTALL MY ZUNE MP3 80GB


You need to download the software from www.zune.com before connecting your zune. Follow the setup instructions. After installation you connect your zune to the PC and the software should automatically detect it and continue the setup and update process.

Frozen zune


Charge the Zune using your computer (if you have one) and then when it turns on, then you got it fixed. If it is charged but won't do anything, then press the back button and up on the control panel.

Zune deleting songs


yes it is due to the zune software not being able to locate the songs. make sure they are available and keep trying. also the zune software constantly search the internet to update your music information and album art. it will automatically update the songs on the zune when you connect it
