Re: the walkman malfunctioned!!! please help!!!

Hi there, one of the problems you have is that there is not much you can access from via your phone, so often the easiest (although not speediest) solution is to re-upload the songs. Have you tried adding another song, playing it, and seeing if that song will play successfully? If it does, then I would suggest deleting the other songs, and uploading them to your phone again. If this is not possible (because you downloaded them straight from mobile network), upload them to a PC and see if the songs will play - if they do, save them to PC, reformat your card (my computer -> right click on card name -> format) and then put them back on your phone. Unfortunately if they wont play on PC either, the chances are they have been corrupted and you may have to contact your download source for a refund or new copies. If after trying these options you are still stuck, try a) a mates memory card in your phone, and b) your memory card in a mates phone. If a works and b doesnt, contact your memory card supplier. If b works and a doesnt, then contact your phone manufacturer. Hope this helps and isnt too confusing - Chris.

Sony Ericsson W890i ringtone and alarm doesnt make noise walkman works.

The front speaker needs replacing. Songs/MP3's are played through the back speakers, thats why you can hear them when you play them individually.

Ive been quoted around £50 from an online mobile phone repair centre to replace it.

Needless to say, Ive sent my phone back for a refund, and i wont be buying this phone again.

What format are they? I don't think the Walkman will play M4a (iPod) files. You're best-off with Mp3 files at a bit-rate of 128mbps or 192mbps. I'm not sure if it can handle "lossless" quality music files.

you have to go to a reliable cell phone source and debrand the phone, just as if you were to unlock it.

All the bluetooth wireless headset are only capable of making/receiving voice calls.
its a bluetooth software which is installed on ur cell phone. it is not capable of listing the music through the BT headset. BT 1.1 Software version only lets you listen to mono.
BT 1.2, Version playing music through a BT headset while music is playing on laptops.
and again we need to find out what BT software version is on the phone and if sony erricsson came out with better BT software for your needs.

hope this little information helps.
