    I have the same exact problem! No matter how many times to switch the lock key from Locked to Unlocked the unlocked symbol still sits at the bottom right side of the screen. I've tried restarting it but since all the keys are locked it doesn't work...
    I've tried pushing down on the lock switch to make sure it wasn't unlevel but that didn't work either.
    It was working perfectly just last week, I don't understand how it can just stop working so suddenly. I haven't even had this Zune four two months yet and it's already causing problems!
    Please help!

Zune does nothing! Screen says Zune with loading logo but...

Let it on and completely drain the power, then try it. Make sure your lock key is not locked either. (at the top of Zune Device)

120 Gig Zune Locked Up -Won't Unlock

One other option you may not know of is to hold the down button, and the back button at the same time. This will send the Zune into a deeper "off" state, and may reset your lock command.

If NO other options are working, you should probably try a "hard reset".

This means you will have to open the Zune itself up (you can find simple instructions for this fairly easily online) and pull a small plug out that connects the battery to the Zune itself. Don't worry, your music wont be deleted.

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.
