Innuos Zen failing to do anything. UK service agent?

My Zen has been playing up. I wanted to import more files, fail.

Tried a couple of files from the backup and ripping a CD, fail. Now it won't connect at all.

I suspect the hard drive but there is no way ro check. Is there a UK service agent I can send it to to be fixed?

Go onto Innuos.com and lodge a service ticket and then one of the team, maybe Nunno himself will get back to you to try to resolve.  When I've had issues before they have been very good.  Just one thought, you have upgraded the OS to 2.0 and above?

I have been/are on that route. Couldn't be more helpful.

Unfortunately I couldn't run a remote session due to using a Chromebook. OS is 1.4.7, that's the latest that the Zen accepted before problems.

Bugger!  I also was having issues when running the 1.X.X OS which have been largely resolved in 2.X.X

Maybe a phone call to Innous GB is in order as I think that they are based in Northampton/Midlands area and either send the unit to them or take it to them, if you are close enough?  Their phone number is 44(0) 2475 200 210 

I run mine (Mk2 Zen) through an Android tablet, so I have no knowledge of using Chromebook.

In any case good luck and hope that you get it sorted.

Thanks for that John, I think that is the only option open to me now.

It doesn't even appear on My Innuos or Fing now.

Oh hell, that does sound rather serious.  I don't think you've got anything to lose by ringing them.  Usually much easier to speak to someone than hammer it out on a keyboard.  For what it's worth, if you can get it to run on 2.X.X, I would think that you would also get an upgrade in sound quality......don't ask me why but I definitely noticed it as have others I believe.  Therefore, it worth pursuing this or you have an expensive paper weight.

Good luck.

HDD has failed. Innuos are collecting via DHL.

Sorry to hear this but hopefully you will get it sorted.  Is you one still in warranty or is this going to cost you?

Bugger, unlucky.  Any mileage in getting it replaced with an SSD?

I would have thought it should be an SSD.

I think the Mk2 Zen only had HDD but the mk3 can be specified as SSD or HDD.

Hi Firebottle, how are you getting on with your Zen?

Hi Boycie, it's an on going tale unfortunately.

Innuos tested the unit and stated that there was no problem with the HDD. When asked if the HDD could be replaced with an SSD the reply was that only certain drives were used due to their fault reporting capabilities and no SSD's had been approved for use. Perhaps the Mk3 is different in it's SSD implementation.

The Zen was returned with OS 2.0 installed and I imported my music files and all was well. I really liked the new dashboard, a move away from LMS.

However when I came to power up the Zen on Saturday I got a message saying it couldn't connect to the server. It is seen on the network but that's it. No changes were made to the installation so to say I'm P'eed off is an understatement.

I have emailed Innuos service again but so far no reply. My guess is the HDD is failing, looking at the date sticker it is now 5 years old.

The repair/reprogramming charge was quite reasonable but the thing that stuck in my craw was Innuos charging VAT on top of the pickup/delivery charge of £20 each way. So I have paid the government £8 just for the privilege of having it transported. 😠

Innuos don't 'charge' VAT...they collect it on behalf of the government. If you want a more progressive tax policy, you will have to stop voting Tory.

£20 plus VAT each way for one box might be a bit strong, though. Does the box have it's own LPSU?
