Question about Sony NW-A1000 MP3 Player

2 Answers

SOund Interferance My 6gb version of the NWA 1000 is really crackly sounding through the headphones, and extra inteferance occurs if you change the volume or press the hold button? I have tried other headphones so it is not them. Could it be the connection where the headphone jack goes? or more likely something more terminal? Could the files just be poor quality etc? i transferred them via the enclosed copy of Connect. CHeers James

Re: SOund Interferance

I have a similar problem. If you put a bit of pressure on the top right corner of the mp3 player (i.e.: clamp it between a couple of your fingers) the sound becomes fine again. However, in my case, the problem eventually became worse, up to the point where I couldn't hear anything at all. I think you'll need to get it serviced to fix the problem. I'm sorry I can't help more than this. Adam

Problems changing volume & sound horrible

Your player is flipped. It thinks that it's connected to an external device, and acts as if it in line out output. When outputing to line out, you really don't have volume control, and you hear it right with the headphones, you would be missing some amplification. Try to reverse the actions that choose line output: Press and hold BACK. The Home menu appears. Press the arrows to select the settings icon(looks like a suitcase), and then press play/pause. Press the up/down buttons to select Audio Output and press play/pause. Now you should see "line out" selected. move the arrows to another setting - headphones if available, and press play/pause. Now unless something is really wrong with your player it should work. If it doesn't, use your warranty if valid, send for repair. Good luck
