How to Unfreeze a Zune
How to unfreeze a Zune when the either the song freezes or when it goes blank and wont turn on.
My Zune Froze, and I cannot turn it off. The screen on my Zune went blank
I have had a zune for a long time now and once it froze on me and I could not do anything. This is where I found out what really happens when you go to shut it off.
* Most likely you shut it off with the play button. (This does not shut it off, rather it puts it in sleep mode so that it knows where you were when you “turned it off”. Remember that its not a lot of energy consumption in this mode though.)
Now that you understand that, you can understand why it wont unfreeze when you try and shut off. Because you are not shutting it off!
* First thing to try is Down-Back (not the left button, back.)
That is the proper way to turn it off.
*if that does not work push Up-Back
That will do the trick for sure. I had you try and turn it off the proper way before restarting because there is a slight chance that you can lose some content with restarting it. ( the second method I showed.) although I would bet on Mothers life it wont happen there is always the chance.
I showed the newer zunes but this works with the others too. (30 without touchpad etc.)
