I can't turn on my Zune

I was listening to the radio on my Zune and then it turned off because my battery was low. But the battery bar wasn't low and now it won't turn back on. What can I do or do I just need to get a new one?


It's possible that your Zune's battery just needs to be recharged. Plug it into your PC via the sync cable (or use a Zune AC adapter) and allow it to charge for 3 hours. See if this allows you to turn on your Zune.

It's also possible that you need a new Zune battery. You don't have to buy a new Zune since it's cheaper to get the battery replaced. A Zune's battery has a certain number of charging cycles after which it needs to be replaced. Visit this link for Zune repair resources.

I have been experiencing this too but I think it's just that sometimes when you hit the button it won't turn on. Just wait a few seconds (20) and then hit it again. That's all I know, hope I helped!
