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.

I am not able to install songs. i have installed sonic stage software. it detecting the player. after disconnectiog and playing, it shows no playlist.


The issue happens as the songs transferred to the player is not using the SonicStage Software. I suggest that you backup the songs in the Computer and then Format the Player. To Format the Player; press and hold the DISPLAY/HOME button, select Settings-->Advanced Settings-->Initialize--> Format-->OK.
Once the Walkman Player is Formatted, install the latest version of the SonicStage Software in the Computer and transfer the songs again using the Software to the Walkman Player. Click here to install the latest version of the SonicStage Software.
This should resolve the issue.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Songs playing but its mute, incoming calls not ringing

you can check if you speaker is broken by using a set of headphones. if you don't hear sound when using your headphones there is something wrong with your software settings. if you do hear sounds using your headphones you need to replace your speaker. You can buy a replacement speaker on ebay and do this yourself, of search for someone to do if for you. If you still have warranty on your phone just return it to the shop that sold the phone.

My bean won't play songs when i download them on to the device.

Maybe its the unsupported format. Format the song you want to play using .mp3 format, 128kbps, 4400Hz (or whatever), and 2.0 (stereo) to see if it works.

Good luck, and Happy Holidays.

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.
