Zune symbol flashes while trying to charge

I have a problem with my Zune that use to work but I left it outside. I tried to charge it but it just flashes the Zune symbol when I plug it in. I figured that if it were fried, it wouldn't get that far. Would this be accurate? How can I fix it?

Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard.

If this fails, then there is a hardware issue that cannot be resolved without replacement.

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


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.

Zune won't respond to any key presses.


I would first allow the Zune to completely charge (the battery symbol should be full and green[i believe--it's been a while since I first got mine]).

I would then unplug the device and restart the computer. Once your computer has completely rebooted connect the device to the computer and see if it detects the device. It should work. Also you might try another USB port.

My Zune 30GB Is Menuless...


Try this....
Reset Zune: Press and hold the back button while pressing up on the control pad.
Connect Zune to a power source: If the Zune device is in sleep mode, this action will wake the Zune device and turn it on. If the battery does not have a charge, you may have to wait several minutes for the Zune device to turn on.

Also, make sure that the hold button on top of your zune is turned to the off position.

Hope this helps!

My zune won't turn on


Check the Lock button. Push it all the way to the right, then all the way to the left. I'm continually having to do that w/ mine, even when the orange Lock symbol ain't showing.
What do you mean by "tried to reset it"? By holding the Back button (on the left) and pressing the top of the Control Pad until you get the Zune logo?
Try these steps. They may work.

Zune won't charge


now what you do is if the zune just has a black screen with a battery symbol and it stays that way forever when on the charger. you, take the zune off the charger and press the play/pause button and if it turns on for a second with the low battery symbol then turns off, your in luck, just hold the play/pause button for 10 - 20 minutes. the zune will have turned on and off alot agitating the battery. once you hold it for 10 - 20 minutes put it on the charger, then presto it works. let charge fully then die completly for every time you use it for a bout a month to let the battery get back into it's normal cycle. ~Dan herzberg~ Thank you*
