Mp3 players have a solid state "hard drive" if you will, much like the memory in a flash drive, and has its own "operating system" installed, much like a computer. well, the operating system is crashing, and turns by default so it can be "rebooted". Unfortunately, when they start doing this, it pretty much means part of the memory has been damaged, and crucial portions of software are lost. It's done for. Sorry. I've had several mp3 players do this to me. The "hard drives" don't handle any kind of shock very well, which is a bad fault to have in something like an mp3 player that gets tossed around alot.

Not sure if it's the same problem as mine! My battery was ran completly flat and then wouldn't turn on even after being plugged into the computer and hours of it juset sayin 'connecting'. I looked on Sony's website and found this -
Battery is 100% discharged. Therefore, PC's USB with 5V/500mA set up has not enough power to start up the charging process because loading current is greater than the set up, therefore USB is disabled immediately due to sudden current load. Remedy:
Battery must not be discharged 100%
If it happens then the supplied AC adaptor must be used firstly because it is providing 5V/800mA power. After a couple of minutes the unit can be connected to PC without problem then it can continue the charging during file transfer, etc.
I bought a usb adapter charger plugged it in and its back to normal!
that used to happen with my old SNW.... the way i fixed it was updating the firmware. you need your computer connect cable, the sony website, some hard drive space, and a little bit of patience. i recomend making a backup of everything on the usb device before starting this prossess, just as a precaution.
step 1 (optional)
backup your stuff
well u might have gone wrong u should charge ur walkman for abt 3 hrs first use untill full appears and it is recommended that even if u dont plan to use u r walkman u should atlest charge the battery once a while for battery mentainance try to reset ur update the player firmware.or even then if it dont comes send it to sony or have a converstion with sony support
Hello aga2958, I think you need to visit maintenance center to fix that cause its hardware problem. But you can check somethings before u visit them .. like: 1. If you are using Batteries to power up the Walkman .. be sure the batteries are full charged. 2. Try to power on the Walkman by Adapter 3 Volts. 3. Be sure the tapes you are using are fine into other Cassette. Thanks for using FixYa.
