Static electricity shuts Zune down Print E-mail

Static ElectricitySome visitors of the ClicZune site say that appart from the skipping problem many Zune players have when using Marketplace tracks, they also reboot / shut down because of static electricity! Pretty weird...

One of our readers, Southpaw suggested: “The static is actually an autokillswitch thing. I've had it happen and replicated the issue to test it(much to the pain of my ear). It's made so that if an electrical signal returns back through the headphones to the audio in it'll shut down to prevent itself from getting damaged.”

Microsoft’s customer support does not recognize the problem right now and only says to charge the Zune for 4 hours. The Zune forums are also loaded with people having this problem with their Zune.

Another reader, Lux, comments: 

[...]As far as shutting off, static WILL shut off the Zune. I work in a lab and part of our protective gear can cause static which has given me quite a jolt when it grounds through me via my headphones and shuts the zune off. 

Thats interesting. It has never happened to me, but I live in a place with high humidity. Have you come across your Zune shutting down / rebooting after feeling a small electric shock ?

About the 4 hours charging tip: No Comment.
