Question about Sony Network Walkman NW-A1200 MP3 Player

1 Answer

Screen Freezing I am hoping you can help. When I use my NW-A1200 it will work for a few hours but then it freezes and says NUDGE?? Eventually it switches off and wont switch back on but the backlights stay on? I have to then wait till the battery dies, charge it back up then it works again for a bit. Do you have any ideas as its getting really annoying now. Also the volume button has fallen off, can you buy replacements as Sony wanted a small fortune for repair? Thanks v much

I havent heard of the nwa1200 doing that before. i have the same one and mine loads up and plays fine. it could be a technical problem with the product itself, but i wouldnt be able to say for sure im afraid. however the volume button should click back on if u still have it.

Sony nwa 1200 freezing up

Hi finnchy

Please email me at or visit our website which links to our eBay Shop in which there is a Classified for replacing hard drives for £45 inclusive of parts.

This compares favourably to the £77 which, I am told, Sony charge. If you were to try and source the hard drives on the Internet yourself, they cost between £50 - £100 per piece.

Hope this helps.

Kind Regards,

Motorola a1200 screen calibration

If the screen calibration is way off then it seems that you can't even click on the crosshair during screen calibration. However, tapping on the crosshair does seem to adjust the calibration a little in the right direction each time, it's just not obvious that anything happened. So the trick is just to keep trying - gently and repeatedly tap the same spot on the crosshair for several seconds - eventually the screen will calibrate.
