I've had my atrac ad mp3 for 7 years now and the only problem is the right arrow button which is a little tricky to use.

I have the same mp3, but not those problems. One thing that needs to be cleared up about this mp3 player, is that it is incredibly prone to breaking. I've never used a machine that can be destroyed so easily (including a windows PC).
To start, i would recommend to anyone buying one, yes, it is a fantastic thing, brilliant, i love it, i have about 300 albums on, and i still have more than 4 times as much space free for more files. as well as the sound being fantastic (the iPod is nothing compared to the sound on this). But, like i said, it's very fragile; Mostly due to the thin metal casing, as well as it lacking shock-absorbency. If your planning on buying one, it is a definite MUST to protect it. I mean it. Obviously you can't get any protective mobile gear that was designed for it anymore or at least it isn't exactly mass produced. So i made something to fit it, a bit of wadding, a thick material and a 'flap' to secure it. For those of you too pre-occupied trying to figure out how to convert those .oma files to .mp3 (trust me, it's near impossible), you could get your mothers/ partners/ creative friends to make on for you, or try and use another mp3 brand case, i think an iPod case will work fine.
To those of you that have recently bought one, it is imperative that you be prepared for a sound crash on your mp3. within a year to 18 months, the jack plug WILL break and you will have to send it back to the factory, regarded that you have a warranty still, if not, it will be ridiculously expensive to get it repaired, you may as well buy a new one. Each one of these Walkman's WILL break to a point of de-functionality at least once in the first year, after that, they will break temporarily, but can be fixed using a few tricks. I thought i should sneak that in to anyone the stumbles upon this site in hopes to buy one.
To answer your question, i've found that the best way to deal with errors (non-sound related, thats for the boys at SONY to deal with) is a little trick. With the face of the thing being the side with the screen, turn it to the right. you should find rectangular compartment (which, if as hold as mine is, would be a little wobbly). Take a sharp point, like a pen and use the nib in the small indent in the centre. Pull down, which should pop out the compartment. swing out, and use the nib again to hook the piece of metal to pull out the battery. Pull out the battery completely and then replace. Snap the lid back and turn on your mp3. Hopefully, this has re-booted the drive and should be working.
If this doesn't work, i'm sorry. The only other thing i can recommend is to send it back to SONY, get it repaired by a fellow nerd, or pray really, really, really hard.
