Zune white 30 gig. Im having problems with the charging. the battery life is too short and it dies quick. can you please let me know what's the problem?


Hi rasshatta357,

If the battery is fully charged and get low quickly after an operation, this is an indication that the battery itself is dying. You have to replaced it with new one to back in normal operation again.

Hope I helped you.
Have a nice day!
Thanks for using Fixya.

My Zune 8g has poor battery life it is only 2 months old .Even if it is fully charged and you turn it off within a few days the battery is dead and the wireless function is off so not sure what to do?>...


there are two things that can happen.
i if the charger is not giving out enough power out, then a battery cant charge on time.
ii if the battery is not charge.
if you are able to do the following.
get the battery out of the set, get a meter and set on dc amps,record the current before charging, and after charging check again and record, than compare the current differance.

Q = CHARGE Q = IT since I = CV / T
I = CURRENT Q = CV where I = V/R
T = TIME IT = CV V/R =CV/T
V = VOLTAGE VT =RCV
C = CAPACITANCE this is the charge of the battery T = RC
R = RESISTANCE of the battery which will also depend current from the supply.

from that charger you will find out that both battery and supply have equal importance

Zune 80 gig will not start


My 80 Zune has a frozen screen as well... This is ludicrous! Well this is how this problem should be resolved:

  1. Disconnect your Zune from USB and AC power sources.
  2. Because the player is frozen, its battery will drain—this is good. Wait until the battery is empty and the screen goes black. If the battery was fully charged, this might take a couple of hours.
  3. Wait until after noon GMT on January 1, 2009 (that's 7 a.m. Eastern or 4 a.m. Pacific time).
  4. Connect your Zune to either a USB port on the back or your computer or to AC power using the Zune AC Adapter and let it charge.
I cannot believe the savvy programmers for Zune did not identify this problem in advance... Well I guess we are all human lol... Can't wait to begin listening to my music again!

Have a Happy New Year!

Frozen Zune


Turn it on: if it will stay powered up, hold down on the pad, and hold the back button at the same time: This will turn the device off, thus possibly fixing the problem. (for the record, holding up on the pad while pressing back will reboot the device, but I find this sometimes does not want to take, like in the situation you are having)


I may also suggest plugging it into any give USB port, letting it try to charge again, then, when you unplug it, do the reboot or turn off commands as described above.

Hope that this helps: I would think the system is off, since you say it "turned off" on you, and now when you start it up you get the "i need a charge" battery, but knowing how my 80 gig acts sometimes, it may THINK it is shutting of when it is not.

Zune charging problems, hardware problems


I had a 30g w/same problem. I installed the Zune software from CD. Plugged the Zune into my USB jack and waited hrs for the full screen battery icon to go away. It never did. Here is what I did to fix it. I left the Zune disconnected until its battery drained and the lcd went dark. In this state, pressing the play/pause button, caused the full screen battery icon to appear briefly before the lcd went dark again. With the Zune disconnected from my xp pc, I ran Windows Update in express mode. I have Windows system restore and auto-update turned off and rarely update my pc, so I also took the opportunity to take a manual system check-point (so I could restore from the check-point if an update trashed my pc). I took and installed all the latest Windows updates. When it was done, I had all the latest security updates and IE 7. At this point I went to http://www.zune.net/en-us/products/zunesoftware/download.htm and downloaded the latest Zune software. I installed the Zune software update. I ran the new Zune software on my PC and found the device tab. NOW I connected the Zune to a USB port on the back of my PC. The full screen battery icon appeared on the Zune but nothing appeared in the Zune software. I left it this way for a few minutes. It occurred to me that I might get more power through the USB port if I turned off my other external USB devices, which I did. Within a few minutes, the Zune FINALLY came to life and a Zune splash screen appeared on the device. The device booted and was FINALLY recognized by the Zune software on my PC. Shortly after that I noticed that it already started synchronizing with my PC music collection. I figured it would charge up and download my entire collection (20gig) so I grabbed some sleep for a few hours. When I returned, the PC was asleep too. Unfortunately, the Zune was not charged and had stopped sync'ing. Not to be discouraged, I woke up the PC, exited the Zune software and left the device charging for an hour or so. When I returned, the device was about 80% charged. I quickly disconnected and played my first music video on the device!!!! I reconnected (the Zune software auto-launched) and left it sync'ing and charging for a while longer. When it was 100% charged, I disconnected and have been using it for a few hours. It was a long painfull road to get this thing setup, but it was WELL WORTH IT! I am already a huge fan of this device. In fact, I'm considering passing this one on to my wife so I can get the 80gig. Hang in there, it's worth it!!!!

PS: one sidebar -- I have noticed that the pc software will only sync about 800 songs in a session. I have simply been restarting the sync to get the next session going. At this point, I am fully synchronized and have 4.5 gig free.

My Zune is Not responding


after much research on this matter in the past few hours. To resolve this situation don't shut the zune down by holding play/pause button it does not shut down properly that way.

Hold down the down & back button down until shuts off....zune recommends as the best way to turn off your zune. Also if you are having problems holding charge, a lot of people replaced the original charge plug and found that it worked again. these cables usually become faulty from previous models and 30gigs. So buy a new cable & shut it down correctly.

Still no worky??? Call zune, within 1 year they will accept it for repairs. They may even send you a new refurbished zune...since they no longer are making the 30 gig...probably for those reasons.

I hope this advice not only helps you but myself. Who wants an expensive paperweight...not I!
