My Zune 4gb won't sync with my software and will not charge

Zune 4gb (pink) won't sync or charge.

The only thing I see on the screen is a frozen image of the charging symbol -- nothing else.

I do have another Zune 8gb set up on that software as well and it is syncing and charging just fine.

I have tried charging the Zune 4gb on the home dock and it doesn't charge there either (my other Zune 8gb does charge there).

I had the same problem. if you have a wall charger plug it in to that and it turns right on or try to reset it. press the up and back buttons at the same time. DO NOT PRESS THE PLAY BUTTON WITH THE UP AND BACK BUTTON. IT MIGHT ERASE ALL YOU'RE media.

Hi,

I had a similar problem with my 30GB Zune. The first normal solution is to make sure that the USB port is providing enough power to the Zune to charge it by trying a different port or computer, but since your other Zune charges it is likely not the problem.

Other possibly solutions are performing a hard reset on the Zune (hold back and up until it resets), or allowing the zone to completely discharge and try again. In my case, none of these solutions worked and I was forced to send my Zune in for a new battery, which Microsoft was willing to replace for free.

My 4gb zune pink wont turn on or do anything except when plugged into a pc the zune tells me to open the zune software and and restore the device firmware


If it's not doing anything else, so you should probably let the zune software do the restore. Usually doing a restore will fix any software related issues.

Can't put music on zune!


1. Sync the Zune with its "home" computer. Each Zune has a specific "home" computer that it automatically syncs with. Use your Zune-specific USB cord to connect your device to this computer, and then sync your device as you normally would. This will solve most software hiccups and will generally get your Zune out of a "frozen" state.
2. Perform a soft reset. If syncing your device doesn't work, you can reset your software by holding the "Back" and "Up" buttons on the central control pad. Your screen will flicker, and then the Zune logo will appear with a status bar. Within a few moments, your software should be returned to normal.
3. Perform a system restore. However, doing this will erase all of your music, videos and photos, so only do this if you have exhausted both of the other troubleshooting steps. You can restore your Zune by connecting it to your computer, selecting it from the "Devices" list, and then pressing the "Restore" button. The process may take a few minutes, depending on how much content you had on your device. Once the restore has finished, your Zune will be completely blank.

Frozen 4gb zune.


i had this problem too, i would plug the zune into the computer trough usb cord, and have your zune home page come up automatically if it doesnt click the zune software shortcut. Go to top corner and go to settings, after that go to device and syce options. finally you need to press erase all content and your zune will be clean and rebooted up. when i did this my zune turned on and was back to normal, the only thing that sucked was that it took so long for me to figure this out and i had to syce everything back on my zune agian

e mail me if you have anymore questions at zombiepoptartz@yahoo.com

Zune locked


Go look on zune.net and then click support. My zune just did the same thing a little bit earlier and I was worried so I went looking on the net and found these entries. Under support it says:

My Zune 30 is frozen on the boot screen, now what do I do?
You will need to reboot your device after noon GMT (that's 7 a.m. Eastern or 4 a.m. Pacific time) on Jan 1, 2009.
Please unplug your Zune (no AC or USB cables).
Because your Zune is frozen your device battery will begin draining, this is good.
The battery will eventually be fully depleted and the screen will go black.
After noon GMT on January 1 connect your AC power or USB cable such that the battery can begin charging again.
Once the Zune has enough battery to boot it should do so normally and you can go back to enjoying your Zune!

My Zune 30 has been working fine today, should I be worried?
Nope, your device is fine and will continue to work as long as you do not plug it into the PC before tomorrow.
If you plug your device into a PC before noon GMT Jan 1, 2009 your device clock will be set to the last day of the leap year and you will experience the freeze issue. If this happens, see above.
The PC that you plug into does not have to have the Zune software installed in order for your device clock to be set and the leap year bug to occur so you should avoid plugging your Zune 30 into any PC today.

What if I have DRM content on my Zune?
Your DRM content will most likely not be affected by this issue. However, it is a good idea to sync your device with your PC once the freeze has been resolved in order to ensure that all of your licenses are up to date.

What if I took the advice on the forums and hard reset my device by disconnecting the battery?
This is not a good idea and we do not recommend opening your device up yourself. However, if you already did it…
If you have DRM content on your device, your DRM store is now out of sync with your secure clock.
You will need to wait 24 hours from the time that you reset the device and then resync your DRM licenses from your PC.
Alternatively you can format your device and resync the content.

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.
