Question about Sony NW-A1000 MP3 Player

Open Question

NWA1000 The battery wont charge (the battery icon in the display remains static instead of indicating that it is charging) I have 2 NWA1000's and the good one displays moving battery icon and charges OK, the faulty one remains static. Both up to firmware V3.0 the faulty unit is newer that the working unit. Nothing appears damaged - I have swapped the batteries over but neither wants to charge in the faulty unit. Any ideas?

SOURCE: Sony Nwa3000 appears dead??

First things first-have you pressed the reset button on the bottom of the unit? Secondly- try updating the firmware on your unit the manual way - Go to this link. Go to download the latest version of Sonicstage but dont actually do it. At some point there is a link to update your firmware to version 3.0. Try doing this again, going through the update procedure it suggests, even if you already have 3.0 installed. This might work. Worth a try at least!

This is VERY common in the NWA1200. Don't even bother with Sony, I've tryed its a dead end, but you can still get it fixed. I'm pretty sure FixYa don't allow advertising so please get in contact if you want it fixed:

SOURCE: My Walkman won't charge

What I did when I got this error was to push the reset button on the bottom of the player itself... Mine rebooted and took a charge from the computer. Hope this all works for you.

Gateway NV5378u lap top, brand new battery installed and status says 100% charged. When I unplug the computer it shuts off as if there is no battery. Could the new battery be defective?

There are a few things to check. The LED lights can tell you a lot. This will tell you more about the battery:
  1. On the taskbar, double-click the power cord icon or battery icon to open the Power Meter dialog box. Note: If the power cord icon or battery icon does not appear on the taskbar, click the show hidden icons button.
  2. Press Fn+STATUS to view the power status box, which opens in the upper-left corner of the screen. The power status box shows the current power source, the battery charge level, and the power management mode.
  3. Look at the battery charge indicator (if applicable).
    • LED green - Battery is fully charged.
    • LED orange - Battery is charging.
    • LED blinking red - Battery charge is very low.
    • LED solid red - Battery is malfunctioning. Note: This LED only lights up when the notebook is connected to AC power.
  4. Press the battery meter button on the battery. The battery meter lights indicate the percentage of battery charge remaining.
  5. Wait for a Low Battery warning message to appear.
If your battery charge indicator displays what looks like an inaccurate charge, you may need to recalibrate the battery.

To recalibrate the battery as mentioned, try this:
  1. Connect the AC adapter and then turn on the notebook.
  2. As soon as it starts and you see a startup screen, press the F2 key.
  3. In the BIOS Setup utility, use the TAB key to select the Advanced menu.
  4. On the Advanced menu, select Battery Auto Learning, and then press the SPACEBAR to select Enabled.
  5. Use the RIGHT ARROW key to select the Exit menu. On the Exit menu select Exit Saving Changes, and then press ENTER.
  6. At the Setup Confirmation prompt, select Yes, and then press ENTER.
  7. The battery recalibration process begins and a screen opens showing you the progress.
  8. When the recalibration has finished, and the message "Press [Esc] key to exit" appears, press Esc. The battery charge indicator now displays an accurate battery charge.

Hope this helps!!

Just want to know what the code FLO stands for kid lost the manual

The digital display shows "FLO" to indicate that the unit is in float charge mode. The battery "fully charged" icon will display on the LCD screen and the arrows pointing to the "+" and "-" will flash. In this mode, the unit monitors the battery voltage and charges as necessary to assure the battery maintains full capacity. The unit remains in float charge mode as long as the charger is connected to the battery and plugged into a functioning AC outlet. I hope this has answered your question.

I have an nv5468u with Part Number LXWDG02030. My laptop wont charge the battery, I can still turn it on using the ac adapter but it wont charge the battery, the battery light indicator just alternates...

Hi there. Your problem seems to be the battery. Usually when the battery is at the end of its life the indicator stays at 0%. If you are still unsure you can go to and get free battery testing software. Good luck...

I have a T2+ remote sys and need a manual. as a start I need to know how to charge.

The remote comes with a charging dock, if you did not get this you can order one from RTI (952) 253-3136.

The T2+ uses a Lithium-Ion rechargeable battery. This battery does not exhibit any type of "Memory Effect" from being charged too often. Since the T2+ can safely be charged after each use, a docking station is included for convenience. If left out of the docking station, the T2+ will remain in sleep mode for 1 or 2 months before shutting down. At that point the battery must be recharged. The T2+ Docking Station can be placed on a flat surface such as a shelf or table, or it can be mounted to a wall using the mounting holes on the back of the unit. If the T2+ battery capacity is reduced to approximately one hour of remaining run-time, a low battery icon will appear in the upper left corner of the display The docking station LED illuminates to indicate a charge in progress. The LED will turn off when the battery in the unit is fully charged.A fully discharged battery will take approximately 2-4 hours to completely re-charge.The T2+ can remain in the docking station indefinitely without damage to the battery.

MY Zen WONT TURN ON. It also wont charge.

Connect the player to a USB port on the back of a desktop PC.. Check the display for the charging icon . As the display times out after a few seconds, press any button on the player to reactivate the display. If the battery is fully depleted, the charging icon may not be displayed. Cup the player in your hands to check that the blue power LED behind the Play/Pause and Options buttons is blinking on and off repeatedly. This indicates that the player is successfully charging. After 1 hour of charging, power on the unit to activate the display. The charging icon should be displayed. Allow the player to charge for at least 6 hours. During this time, if charging from a USB port, please ensure your PC does not enter a power conservation mode (Standby, Sleep, or Hibernate) as this will interrupt charging. If the player does not indicate a charge, or will not power on after at least 6 hours of charging, please contact Customer Support.
You might try updating your ZEN V or ZEN V Plus firmware to take advantage of new features and functionality.

Phone wont turn on!

i have noticed that the mini plug for the charger and usb connection on RAZR V3 is sometimes sloppy. when the phone is charging it will definitely say battery charging on the external display and also flash the battery icon. i also noticed that the plug for the wall outlet is touchy.
make sure the plug is secure in the wall outlet
make sure the mini plug is secure in the phone
gently wiggle these connections if you have to till you get the battery charging message
if there are any connection problems there will be a unable to charge message instead.
