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. Wizard.
A 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

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.
What you have been using are consumer grade walkie talkies. The rechargeable battery packs in them should last a full business day, unless you are in a high use area. This being said, it is also possible you might need to replace the rechargeable battery pack as they usually have just a one year life expectancy. As they start to fail they will go less and less time in a day.
To answer your question about a radio which will go a full business day, any of the business division Motorola handheld radios would work. Radios such as the CP110, BPR40, CP185, and CP200 are all make to go a full day and sometimes more. Their battery packs depending on chemistry would also need to be replaced every 18-24 months.
if u buy new battery for around 35$... its creepy thing that it again sucks within 6 month so follow these procedure that i really got good response
1)Buy the new battery from any other dealers (u can use Nokia (std) or LG, Micromax, Onida... etc) having same specifications as 1050mAh Lion-POLYMER 3.7v and having equivalent Size that fit into the case.
2)Now open ur dead battery, remove the sticker slowly, u wil get the polythene bag carrying the charge sheets
3)Please note that dont not disturb this polythene bag... (cutting, drilling or pinning), else it starts burning.
4)U will see a circuit above the polyhthene bag having two poles (+ve n -ve) just cut the poles of bag from the circuit and keep the bag aside
5)Now do the same procedure with new batt and remove the polythene bag.. and soilder with the dead battery circuit. (check the +ve n -ve by multimeter)
5)Re-assemble with insulation tape and recondition it perfectly.
now check poles bofore starting.
Note : i got good result from this and i m getting 18-19hrs standby and 11-15hrs usage. Do it on ur own risk...and i m not responsable for ny harm)
I honestlty think that sony ericsson and motorola do have the very same issue with the battery life in the batteries.....so you are stuck with it that way unless you can but a generic battery some have a longer lasting life.
But also remember if you are in an area where the signal is not that stronger that als pulls the battery life being that the phone keeps searching for a stronger signal.
