Re: Literally frozen.

I was going to say, let it warm up for awhile.

But that's good!

Hi,Use the below instruction.

Flip the MP3 player's "Hold" switch to "Off" if the switch is on. Depending on the MP3 player you own, this switch is likely located at the side or top of the player. Once the switch is off, try to turn the player on.

Let the battery of the MP3 player die. A frozen MP3 player is technically still running, and thus the battery for that player is being drained. Wait until the battery is fully dead before moving to Step 3.

Charge the MP3 player using either a computer (that's turned on) or an electronic MP3 charger. Charging the player's battery may "jolt" the player out of its frozen state. Connect the player to the computer or charger via the player's USB cable. Charge the player for 30 minutes before attempting to turn it on.

Sync the player with the appropriate software program (for example, Windows Media Player) for the MP3 player. Connect the player to the computer as described in the previous step. Open the software program and click the "Sync" tab at the top or side of the program. If necessary, click "Start Sync" underneath the tab. The name of the player appears under the "Sync" tab if the player has synced successfully. Try turning the player on once it has synced with the program.

Press the small "Reset" button on the MP3 player. This hard reset shuts the player down completely. Use a pin, tack or thin nail to press down the very small "Reset" button on the side or back of the MP3 player to reset the player. Then, try to turn the player on.

Tips & Warnings

Take the player to an electronics store if none of the steps above unfreeze the player, as there is likely a serious problem with the MP3 player's hard drive.

Also take out the batteries, if holding the play button for like 5 minutes doesn't work.

Hope that helped.

Have a nice day..

Zune player hardware problem

eeh, this is a pretty bad problem. I would ask you if you had a warranty, but you took it apart... I can only suggest getting a new one, not a 30 GB because that one seems to have the most problems. Fixing it though, you could ask the Geek Squad about it. Next time it freezes, just wait for the battery to die, then charge it and restart it.

OK this is an "Internal" problem and it must be returned to the supplier/manufacturer for repair/replacement. I have seen this countless times B4.
