    My NWZ A816 won't take a charge when plugged into the computer via USB cord. As suggested, I will try using an external USB charger. I hope it works since I don't want to spend $77+ to have Sony repair it, even though it is under waranty. Parts will be covered, but labor is only covered for 90 days. I should have read the fine print before buying the Sony.

    Sony Walkman NWZ-A816 lights up when plugged into usb in back of computer - computer does not indicate that it is plugged in. After 60 minutes, unplugged it and tried to turn it on - nothing.

    Home button does not switch the player off.Also it does not return to main menu when presing the home button.

    Before this happened, I had some trouble with the play button. I just had to press it a couple times to get it to work. It only happened for a week and just yesterday, the play button is just completely dead. I've had it for 3 years.

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

The screen has gone blank!!

Charge the Walkman fully. To charge the battery of the Walkman fully keep it plugged in to the Computer for 4 hours.

Reset the Walkman by pressing the RESET button that is located at the bottom.

You can use any sharp pointed object to press the reset button.

If the issue persists then Walkman may require service.
