Default Zune HD Artifacts

Do anyone have artifacts on their Zune HD? Especially in the menu? Is there a way to fix it or is it just the software?

What type of artifacts? If they are old enough you should consider selling them to a museum.
Failing that, have you tried resetting the device(hold power for 15 seconds), and/or reinstalling firmware?

Lol! Well I got it from eBay and totally got ripped off because it's not like new. I restarted it and formatted it and I just went on the internet with it and it just looks horrible. Not HD at all.

what exactly do you mean by "Not HD at all" ?
you do realize the actual screen is not HD right....the "HD" title comes from the ability to listen to HD radio, and the ability to load HD video files on the device and output them to an HDTV.
the resolution of the screen is far from HD...it is even below SD at 480x272. even at that size it would be silly to have an HD screen as you wouldn't be able to tell the difference between SD and HD.

I think it was a figure of speech, not actually meaning the real meaning of HD.

Either you're thinking about the "HD" the wrong way or you have something wrong with your product. A screenshot/photo would be good if you want us to really help. Otherwise turdbogls might be right.

I went through several Zune HD's as I continually had to return them and request a new one from Microsoft after several defects (even the one I have is sub-par). One of the devices I had had either an awful screen or graphics processor. Colors would bleed across borders, the screen seemed to blend and smudge moving objects, etc. If this is your problem, there are few things to do... If you are in the US, try to register your serial number on Zune.net and apply for a replacement product. If not, contact your Ebay seller.

I think that's a problem specifically with the oled screen, and I don't think there is a way to fix it. I'm sure I know what you're talking about since when the screen is totally black, I would notice some parts are blacker than the rest. I've tried it with multiple artist photos, and it's the same when there's no color being displayed.

You're kidding about the second part, right?

I hope so.

Nope I'm not joking... I cant last a day without my zHD. I rather buy a new one than send it in and wait for 1 month. well unless somehow my zHD miraculously gets fixed, but i doubt it.

Well, unless he was using it in the dark, the grey spots are not noticeable.
