Question about Sony NW-A1000 MP3 Player

Open Question

My sony NW-A1000 screen is messed

The colours are all off and when the options screen comes up i can't see what i would be selecting. there is no consistency in the colours. one half of the spinning cd is a deep blue and the other half you can barely see. it could be from static for my computer and it being too close to it, but i want to know if i should just get a new one on my warranty or if this will go away.

SOURCE: My sony walkman NW-A1000 wont show any of my songs i put on it!!

firstly all the tracks you want must be converted into mp3 format. You can get hold off mp3 converter software such as Power and winlame. also all the tracks you want has to be imported into the Connect Player software. you should have a cd that comes with the player, it is similar to iTunes with the iPod. i think you can possibly download it from the sony website. when you have them both convert the tracks into mp3s and then import them into the Connect player. From Connect you will be able to transfer the music across. Hope it helps

SOURCE: Replacing Sony NW-A1000 battery

Using a pair of pliers grab the silver loop on the back of that player. This is pulled up and backwards at an angle. it is held on by an adhesive pad. Once that is off the back just slots off like many mobile phone backs. Please update the question & let us know if the information given was useful to you - Good Luck!

Sony NW-A1000 will not play,

If you get the spinning disc error on your sony nw a1000 it means the hardrive is knackerd.
The hardrive in the sony NW A1000 is a segate ST1.2 6gb and these can be bought off ebay for around £8. If you can't find a 6gb one you can fit an 8gb hardrive BUT your NW A1000 will only use 6gb of it.

If you search on the internet you can find instructions on how to remove the back cover of your NW A1000 which is very easy to do! You then unplug the hardrive (be very careful!) and replace it with the new seagate hardrive. Turn the NW A1000 on and go to the home menu, select "settings", then select "intialize disc" and it will format your new hardrive so that it can work with NW A1000.

Mp3 NW-A1000 was working but then suddenly didnt work

Update firmware
Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware.
Call Sony
