    screen broken on 1 nw-hd1 player so maybe easy just to swop screens?

    last time I opened it there was like a wire connected so have to be careful.

    I don"t know much about them to be honest so dats why I am looking for help.

    I got ripped of at the sony shop,bmth and they never fixed the nw-hd1 player for me and took money off me for nothing.

    I bought a new battery from hongkong and thought that was the problem but it wasn"t.

    my m8 is in london so he can"t fix it

  • garytauber Oct 05, 2008

    number 1 spares

  • garytauber Oct 05, 2008

    why won"t it turn on m8?

    i have heard from sony that it is charging the battery okay.

  • garytauber Oct 05, 2008

    where can i get a service manual from m8?

    my nephew gave me the 1 that won"t switch on and I bought a new battery and it still wouldn"t turn on so I took it to sony near my home and they were a total wasteof time.

  • garytauber Oct 05, 2008

    part number 1 has got like tape connected to unit so u have to be careful when taking it apart.

    not sure if that would stop it working if not fitted properly?

    bye gary

  • garytauber Oct 07, 2008

    not sure m8 if the broken screen nw-hd1 is working okay to be honest.

    I wasted my money buying a battery and thought that was the problem but it"s not.

    sony want like half the money it"s worth just to fix the mp3 player.

    Take Ok screen from dead set and put it in cracked screen unit which is alive and working. This procedure will at least make one unit ok and functional.
    Still confused? let me know then :)

    There can be many possible reasons that it won't ON. Unit isn't in front of me so how can I say that's the particular reason.
    Get it's service manual for it's detailed schematics and information to check what circuit isn't working and why.
