I've had my 8gb zune for a few years, but I lost the USB cable to charge it so it went dormant for a while. I got around to ordering usb/ac/car adapters for it and got the stuff today. When I plug it in, the charging icon doesn't come up on the screen at all. I left it charging on the ac adapter for at least 10 minutes and still nothing. Is it dead? :( I've tried the reset commands but nothing. Any suggestions?

In my experience with an 80gb Zune, the battery can go so low that it actually needs to charge to get anything at all on the screen. When that's happened to me I've had to tilt the screen to see the very dim image of a giant charging battery. Try leaving it charging for an hour or more this time and see what happens.

Had that happen to me many times. I mean bringing it back from drained battery to life. Charging icon will come up after 30mins and then the thing'll load to menu in another 10.
