If you're gonna answer, please people be specific and clear because when we need an answer gobbledegook is annoying!!!

I too had this problem and came here to look for answers, saw that stupid reply and got inspired to solve the problem myself!!!
Hey pal, turn your walkman over (upside down)...see where it says HOLD (its printed into the molding--mine is grey) see the little area directly to the left of the HOLD (note it has three little dots ---there is actually a little arrow pointing to it. Adjust this little area and it should release the hold on the cd. Mine's working again. Hope this helps!

How do you relace the battery in a Sony Walkman MP3 ?

Service Manual for the NW-A1000 available here find page 6 for the Lithium Ion battery exploded diagram and how to change it I think its a 3.7V sealed cell.

Mp3 NW-A1000 was working but then suddenly didnt work

Update firmware
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.
Call Sony

Maybe the mp3 player is dead.. but.. you should install the firmware update for it.. because maybe the mp3 player ROM has a defect..
