Question about Sony Network Walkman NW-A3000 MP3 Player

Battery Life Problem

I've had my Walkman for about 6 months now - at first, it lasted for the full 35 hours with little difficulty. Now, however, it struggles to last for 1 hour, despite being fully charged beforehand and only containing files of 48kbps. Has anyone experienced similar difficulties, and has anyone got any advice on what to do about this? Thanks in advance. :-)

Re: Battery Life Problem

Broke, but you can Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware.

Low battery life even though fully charged

If the MP3 player battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be worn out. Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles and will lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% and gradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up at all. OR The battery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected the battery drops off to zero capacity in a very short time. If the battery drops to an unacceptable charge level then the battery needs to be replaced. Rechargeable batteries will fail if stored in a discharged state for long periods.

Dear Sir, i have 435f if on the player its come walkman symbol and suddenly offff,,,,,,,,,,,

Try charging the battery. To do this, connect one end of the USB cable to the walkman (make sure the w. symbol is facing up), and the other end to your PC. To get a full charge, it will take approximately 4 hours and when it's done, you will see a battery indicator displaying "Full" on the battery. It maybe also that your battery life is used up. You get a certain number of charges (500)before your battery is used up. If that's the problem, you will have to get a new battery. Reply to this solution if this doesn't help.
