Question about Sony NW-A1000 MP3 Player

1 Answer

Sony NW-A1000 Hi, Recently my mp3 player will not switch on fully. I thought it was the battery but the red light on the adapter will not come on when its plugged into a socket or into my laptop. When I do plug it into my laptop I get the message 'USB device not recognised'. When i try to put it on it looks like its about to start (I get the 1st screen, your music your life, and thats all) up but then switches off. The reset button has no effect at all. Ive reinstalled the software and downloaded everything relevant from their websitebut nothing. The software keeps shutting down too. Any suggestions?

Maybe the mp3 player is dead.. but.. you should install the firmware update for it.. because maybe the mp3 player ROM has a defect..

Try pushing the reset button (located next to where you connect the USB) with a small pin or paper clip. If this doesn't work you might have to contact Sony.

Good Luck.

Replacing Sony NW-A1000 battery

Using a pair of pliers grab the silver loop on the back of that player. This is pulled up and backwards at an angle. it is held on by an adhesive pad. Once that is off the back just slots off like many mobile phone backs. Please update the question & let us know if the information given was useful to you - Good Luck!

Error 032

My NW-A1000 also threw up the same problem when I left my laptop and it went into sleep mode.

Pressing the reset button with the end of a paper clip did cure the problem with no loss of music.

Hope this helps others.
