Question about Sony Network Walkman NW-A3000 MP3 Player

1 Answer

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. :-)

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.

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.

Walkie talkie batteries don't last

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.

Best regards.

Battery goes flat in about 4 hours. from a full charge so I bought a new battery and the same thing happens blue tooth is off.Can you help any idea's welcome Flat Ray

I honestlty think that sony ericsson and motorola do have the very same issue with the battery life in the 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.
