Sony walkman 4GB NO RESPOND/FROZE with screen saying"WALKMAN"

I've been charging this new walkman for several times already, hrs and hrs past, and nothing happens, this my 3rd time charging already. Nothing respond after the first time I charged it, the screen "WALKMAN" still stays after i pull out the USB off my computer, I can't close the player or anything, so I just leave it on the whole night, and the battery runs out, so I charge it again, and still the screen won't dissapear...all it says is "WALKMAN" with a symbol and the words "EVERY MOMENT HAS ITS MUSIC"

i don't see any battery indication either...so how do I know if the battery is full or not?
Charging for over 5 hours. Cannot turn the thing off, or even get menu to display. Frustrated. Is this a rip off? Should have gotten an ipod.

    I have the same issue. However I've owned this mp3 player for a few months and have never had this happen before. I don't want to rest it because I don't want to lose the music on there. Is this going to keep happening?

Press the reset button and plug it into the charger afterward. The music won't be lost trust me. It just resets the time settings, as well as the music equalizer.

You most likely have a faulty device replace it, I suppose you just got this one? think you can get it changed to another one or atleast they will send it to warranty repair.

My computer doesnt see my player


Try uninstalling the walkman software from your computer (Window's has it conveniently placed in your control panel for removing programs) and reinstalling the walkman software. You could also try finding the driver from another forum (or this one) and download/install the new driver and see if that helps

Sony walkman nwz-s18f froze


I had this problem a few days ago and now my sony nwzs18f has different problems, the way i got it to charge back up was by using a usb charger that plugs into a socket rather than into your computer this should hopfully charge it back up and also it should unfreeze the screen.

hope this helps

Sony Walkman MP3 doesn't respond to buttons -- won't even turn off


Sorry to hear that. Just press the RESET button to see if it solves the problem. If not, go to the Sony Support Center online.

Good luck, and Happy Holidays.
