The switch contact under the plastic arm is probably broken.

Well I guess I'll be using it too on the new Zunes because I think they are going to be a lot more sensitive with the touchpad

    try resetting the player

    Sometimes a soft reset may be necessary if your player is acting up.
    You may, for example, be advised by technical support to reset your
    player as part of a troubleshooting effort.

    With your Zune
    turned on, press and hold the back (left) button and the "Up" button on
    the control pad at the same time. Your player will reset itself.

If it's working at all it is unlikely to be the hard drive.
It may be a broken track or connection on the circuit board, but again it's surprising it works at all.
Try resetting it. It is so close to working properly it might work.

Zune 8 gb hold switch broken tried to over ride switch but dont know where to make connections


Look at the switch when it is in the unlocked positions. There are three contacts, connect the two contacts with a little bridge between which the slider of the switch is located when it is in the unlocked position. That will permanently unlock your Zune. There are third party Zune repair services, that will fix it for cheap. Even better, I found an DYI Zune repair guide, so you can do it yourself too, not that difficult. If you can't do it yourself, have a tech savy friend do it for you.

My 30gig zune is froze and unresponsive. Please help


there is a "lock" button on the top on the left side make sure this switch is turned to off.
Try one or more of these solutions to resolve this problem:
  • The Zune may be locked. Move the hold switch to the unlocked position. It may help to move the switch back and forth. Then press the play/pause button for a second.
  • The battery may be drained.try recharging it
  • To reset your Zune, press and hold the back button while pressing up on the Zune pad. Resetting turns Zune off and on again.

Lock problem (zune 30)


If it's a zune 30, it's just a glitch in the software timing and so you have to flick it back and forth until it works.
My zune does the same exact thing, it always has. So just bare with them (:
hoprfully microsoft will create a software or firmware update that help itt. (:

Broken lock switch zune Pink


My zune lock switch completely broke off in the locked position. I used a paper clip to remove the small plastic tray under where the switch use to be. It came off pretty easily. Then I could see a small black toggle switch can I was able to flick it in the unlock position.
