Sony bean mp3 problem reply ASAP

The most common cause is a flat battery. There is a trick to charging the battery in these small mp3 players. It wont charge if it is turned on, and it won't charges if it's turned off. Here what to do...
1. plug the payer into your USB port. or wall charger
2. switch thje palyer on using the mechanical switch (on the side)
3. turn it off by either holding down the play button, or selecting "System" from the menu
4. The screen will go black and the battery will begin charging.

Wont turn on

Look in the area of the USB plug, in there is a small hole that a paper clip will fit into. This is a rest button, try and rest the player, it will not loose any music, but it will cause a first boot.

Ipod touch wont turn on unless pluged into computer

Itmaybe a battery problem...if you think its not a battery problem,you may want to try a software upgrade/restore...if your software version is already the latest one,backup all the ipod contents before you will find the restore option in the summary tab in itunes.

I have the solution. Push the menu button (the one ne with the file folder) until "search" is displayed. push the down arrow key on the jog button,10 times, until "advanced menu" is displayed. Pushe the right button on the jog until "format" is displayed. Use the jog buttons until "format ok" is displayed. Then push the play button and the problem is sorted. Good luck.

Sony Walkman Bean NW-E307 MP3 does not charge. what could be the problem... any solutions??

Does the device turn on when connected to the computer? If so, press RESET button on your device and then try again. If the problem continues, you may want to go to the Sony Support Center and download the firmware software for your device.

Hope it works.

Good luck and Happy Holidays.
