  • jrobin16 Jan 02, 2009

    I have the same problem with my Sony MP3 player. It stays frozen on the "Every moment has its music" screen. I had just finished loading new music on it and unplugged it from the computer when this happened. Does anyone out there have a solution? I haven't been able to find one. Thanks so much for your help. I have had this just over a year and it's now out of warranty. This totally sucks!!

    Identical problem. MP3 player is frozen. Reset button appears to turn off when pressed in, but then frozen screen returns. Looking at detail on My Computer all music in still on player (ie not reset), and selecting folder/files defaults and still plays music on media player. I have run the battery right down on player, then re charged and it goes back to frozen screen.



    Help gratefully received. Thanks. Pete

    Mine is a NW-A805. The problem is the same. What can I do?

    Please, help! Thanks in advance!

    My Sony NWZ S616F went through a period of freezing, now it won't do anything. It won't reset or turn on or charge or even register as a piece of hardware when I plug it into my PC, it's just blank. I've only had it for 6 months or so, not over-used it, but bought it abroad, so it would cost me to send it off to be fixed. Just about to give up & buy a new one but any ideas for help would be gratefully received! Thanks.

    I have the same problem but I've tried recharging it and reseting it. I shows that it's charging when i plug it in but that's it. It doesn't show in my computer. In device manager it shows up but with the little yellow triangle. It's says driver is up to date. When I do disable it and enable it it shows in my computer but theres nothing in it.

    I just got off the web chat with Sony after almost an hour. The person kept asking the same questions over and over and just said to stick a paperclip in the hole. That's it. I tried it and nothing happened. then the person suggested holding the paperclip for longer. they said there is a customer support phone number 888-222-7669. I will never get a Sony Walkman again. Just a huge waste of money and they go on the fritz right after the warranty period is up.

My Sony Walkmann NWZ-E436F was stuck with the same message as the posts mentioned. I had just copied a large video file to it and had unplugged the USB cable from my PC. I tried restarting it and pressing the reset button on the back but same thing stuck at that message.

I plugged the Walkman back into my PC and opened up a Windows Explorer windows. I clicked on WALKMAN to find the big file I added. Then, I deleted it. For good measure I deleted another big video file as well. I still had 1.88GB of space left before doing this so I'm pretty sure the flash wasn't full. I unplugged the USB cable and "cha ching" it bootup up like normal.

I believe the video file got corrupted somehow and was causing the Walkman to freeze up when trying to start.

I hope this works for some of you.

I connected my walkman to the computer overnight (you might not have to charge it overnight but do connect it so it charges) then reconnect the walkman to the computer so that the blue screen comes up. Then the loading thing(the thing that runs across the screen towards the right) is gonna show up. As soon as that shows up press and hold the back/home and the option/power off buttons until it turns on. Hope this helps :) mine has been like that for a year and i just fixed it today.

    It was not working for a year? Did you have to let the battery go dead first?

I had the same problem and the reset button didn't clear it. I did find a solution:

1) download the version 1.01 Firmware from
http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/model-home.pl?mdl=NWZS616F&LOC=3
and install according to their instructions. I over-wrote v1.01 with v1.01 and didn't have any problems.

This cleared the blue screen but I had a new problem in that it only showed I had 400mb of space even though there were no files. I then
2) went into the setup menu and re-formatted the drive.
3) I reloaded the music from the hard drive.

You may or may not need all these steps but it worked for me. I got tired of waiting for sony-support to answer and started trying whatever I could think of.
Buena suerte

I have the blue ring that says "connected to USB. The player cannot be operated." I was loading music and videos and I guess tried to do something too quickly.
Usually when I disconnected the USB cord, it would work fine. Now it is dead and useless. None of the suggestions above have worked so far. I've tried replugging it it in. Nothing. I tried connecting it again to the laptop and checking printers and hardware and going to the Sony Walkman screen. Nothing. It just says there's an error and to try reinstalling driver. Tried that. Nothing.

Now it won't play, can't be reset, does nothing when plugged in.
Should I wait for it to go dead and then plug it in again?
Will Sony do anything to help? Do they have a phone number I can call or is this Sony Walkman just an overpriced piece of trash?

On the very bottom of your MP3 player, next to where you'd plug the USB in (on the left of the plug) is the reset button. Hit that with a pin, and it'll reset =D
