This article describes how to change the display output back to the Zune 30GB or the Zune 80GB screen if TV Out has been enabled.
Note TV Out is not available on Zune 4GB or on Zune 8GB.
If you enable TV Out on the Zune device, and you do not connect the Zune device to an external display, you cannot view the Zune interface on the device screen. When you enable TV Out, the screen on Zune 30GB or Zune 80GB is disabled, turns off, and appears black.
To see the Zune interface, connect the Zune device to an external display by using the Zune Home A/V Pack, the Zune Dock Pack, or the Zune A/V Output Cable.
Note The Zune Home A/V PackPack, the Zune Dock Pack, and the Zune A/V Output Cable are sold separately.
If you do not have an external display or a cable to connect the Zune device to an external display, you can disable the TV Out function. To do this, immediately press the center of the Zune pad on the Zune device.
You can also disable the TV Out function by restarting the Zune device. To restart the Zune device, press and then hold the Play/Pause button [GRAPHIC: Play/Pause button] for three seconds to turn off the Zune device. Press the Play/Pause button [GRAPHIC: Play/Pause button] again to restart the Zune device.
