Question about Sony NW-A1000 MP3 Player
Hi. During play my player just stopped working. When I try to switch it back on the spinning disc appears for a moment then it switches itself off. The player is 'ticking' when i try this. Any ideas? Thanks.
I had this problem and even bought a new battery for it. that didnt solve the problem.i kept resetting it with no joy. i ended up getting REALLY REALLY annoyed with it and whacked it on the computer desk( quite hard that at first i thought i had broken it) low and behold its working again!my thought was that if it is knackered then whacking it hard is not going to do much harm is it?

When you have the player stop working and the 'spinning disk' appears, do not bother pressing the reset button-this only switches the unit off. Try giving the unit a sharp shock by dropping it on a carpeted floor from no more than 9-12 inches or holding the unit in your hand and hitting your leg, again with a sharp hit. What ever is skipping in the unit stops and normal operation is resumed. Try not to break your unit by dropping it or hitting it with too much force!

Try connecting your player to the USB cable to ensure that it is being charged before attempting to turn it on again. You may have to leave it for a short while to get enough charge to start up. Also, try pressing the reset button on the player and see if that makes a difference (You won't loose any songs while doing this)
