Question about Sony NW-HD5 MP3 Player

1 Answer

The screen display is blank however I am able to play tracks

The display does not light up when i turn the player on. I am unable to see anything on the display. The navigations keys work as normal and I am able to listen to the player. Problem is without the display I am unable to see the battery level, the album, music attributes or use the search facilty. Even during the charging process the screen is not displayed. The screen is not damaged, is there a sequence of codes(button strokes) that will enable the screen display again. Please help

Re: The screen display is blank however I am able to play...

My NWHD5 has a similar problem, the back light comes on but no data on the screen, since the cost of replacing the screen is a third of the price of the unit I cheated and bought a remote control from ebay which has a screen on it, not ideal but does the job. Phil

8GB MP3/4 Player

Well there may be a setting on the MP3/4 player that you can change the delay on the screen backlight staying lit for. Rummage around the settings for such a thing. If you can't find anything, some more information on what type of MP3/MP4 player it is would be helpful.

I have an 8 GB Creative Zen V Vision. The player is frozen. I can't take out the battery because it is a permanent battery, unable to take out by any means. I have tried to turn it off, and I have tried...

Did you try the reset method suggested in your user's manual? Creative does not list a reset method on their website.

If that fails:

Step by step instructions for formatting a player
  1. Detach the player from the PC if it is connected, and turn off the player.
  2. Press and hold the Play button while powering on the player.
  3. When the player displays the Creative logo, release the Play button
  4. Select Format (All) and select Yes to format the player.
  5. After the player has finished formatting, select Reboot.
  6. Re-transfer the tracks to the player.

Problem with screen

When things freeze up like this, usually a Firmware reload is the thing to attempt. You should have a disc with the player - follow the instructions carefully.
