Your Zune might have a hardware issue, or perhaps the hold/lock switch is engaged, which is why it is not charging. Go here for more help:

My zune wont charge


I think the reason why you zune won't charge is because of your battery.
My zune was acting up as well.
You must first install the latest zune software.
Then you plug your zune cable int the back usb port of the cpu

Enjoy your zune!!

I have a 30g Zune which has not been holding a charge for a couple of weeks. This morning the Zune powers up and then shuts off (even while plugged in). I tried the 'hold down the back button and up at the...


Hi,

I am not sure if this is gonna work but, since you've tried all other steps why dont we give this a try too...LOL :-)

To troubleshoot this issue, try one or more of the following methods in the order in which they are listed:
  1. Let your Zune device charge for 30 minutes, then disconnect and reconnect the cable to turn on the player. It can take up to 3 hours to fully charge.
  2. Connect the Zune device to a different USB port on the computer. Use a USB port on the back of the computer. Do not use a USB hub.
  3. Use another supported high power source, such as an Xbox 360 console, a Zune AC Adapter, a Zune Car Charger, or a Zune FM Transmitter/Charger.

    Note These devices are sold separately.
  4. If you are connecting your Zune device to a mobile computer, make sure that the mobile computer is plugged in and is not running on battery power. Many mobile computers are configured to conserve power when they are running on battery power to extend battery life. This behavior may affect Zune device charging.
  5. If the Zune device is charging slowly, be aware that, for optimal charging, the Zune device requires at least 500 milliamps (mA) of power. Frequently, USB ports that are located on the front of a computer and on some USB hubs are low-power, 100-mA ports. Typically, the high-power, 500-mA USB ports are on the back of the computer. Additionally, when you suspend the computer or put the computer to sleep, high-power USB ports may be switched to low-power, 100 mA mode.
  6. If the device boots to the home screen but is still not charging correctly, continue with the "Home screen is displayed" steps in the following section.

    If the device continues to display the full-screen charging icon, continue with "Full-screen charging icon is displayed."
  7. If the battery in the device still does not charge correctly, visit the following Web site to sign in and register your device: http://service.zune.net (http://service.zune.net)

    At this Web site, you can submit a request for service if your device qualifies for service.

My zune won't charge


It's likely you have a motherboard issue. In some cases the dock connector is physically broken (pins get bent or break off), in other cases the charching circuitry becomes defective.
The only way to get it up and running again is to replace the logic board, the part is readily available on ebay. There are zune repair guides that will show you how to replace the logic board or have a tech savy friend do it for you.

I have a brand new Zune 8 GB player, given as a gift. I downloaded the Zune Software, but when I connect the player by the USB cable, the Zune program does not recognize a Zune as being connected. Also,...


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

ALL YOUR BASE BELONG TO US - is a video that must have been loaded on the Zune previously.

------
if all else fails...

If you connected the ZUNE to your computer before installing the software the computer may have installed it as a different device.

Go to Control Panel - then System - Device Manager. Plug in ZUNE player and see if any new devices show as being connected. BE CAREFUL IN DEVICE MANAGER THOUGH, IF YOU UNINSTALL THE WRONG ITEM, IT COULD MESS YOUR COMPUTER UP.

If this works rate it a FIX-YA!
