Enable hold by sliding the hold switch in the direction of the arrow. Sliding the hold switch in the opposite direction (away from the arrow) the hold function will release. If this doesn't work there is likely something else wrong with the player.

Sony NWZ-S615F walkman-trouble

When you hold your MP3 player with the screen facing you, on the left side there is a small button-like "Hold" control which slides up and down. When you slide it down, "hold" is off, and when you slide it up, "hold" is on. Hope that helps you! =D
