Question about Sony NWZ-E438F Digital Media Player

1 Answer

Battery won't charge.

I bought this mp3 player about a month ago. Used it for a couple weeks with no problem. The battery would never register a full charge when not plugged into my computer, but it worked great nevertheless. Now for some reason it will not charge at all, even though when it's plugged into my computer it says it has a full charge after only a few moments after I plug it in. It won't get passed the welcome screen, and now I'm not even getting a low battery screen. Very frustrating because I really like this player!

I just figured out the problem I had just like yours. I have three different sony MP3's and thought all the usb cables were the same. Well after changing out the usb cable my 438f started charging. I was using the cable from my s615f and the same is true if I use the 438 cable on the 615-full battery instantly. Also sony does not replace these batteries. If in warranty from purchase date, they will exchange with "like product" for $29, or repair yours for $77. Both prices include return shipping. http//eservice.sony.com

Why won't my mp3 coby player won't charge


Your coby is not charging anymore..The battery probably needs to be replaced with a new one..Please check your connection when you charge it..There should be an icon that shows your battery is charging. If it does so that means your coby is charging but your battery cant store the energy anymore.

I have an iq sound 4700 that i bought two days ago but it seems that its taking longer to charge.whenever i take the plug out, i cant switch it on. need help ASAP?


dear, you do not mentioned that how long stand by your battery gives you after charging.
and if your mp3 every showed battery full after charging.
well since your mp3 player is new, it must not have any problem in battery, i think your charges has some fault. Go to the shop where you purchased your mobile.
they may make it for free.
well,
if your battery shows charged full, and gives a long stand by, then your battery is 100%good.
you need to change your charges, or an integrated circuit which help to keep charging you mp3 player., this circuit defines how long it have to take to charge you mp3 player.

best of luck!

regards!

I bought my Zune 2 years ago and thought I had lost it, but found it. So I have been using it for only 1 year. About 2 weeks ago even after charged, it will only play off the charger for about 45 minutes....


Debbie,
Zune batteries are replaceable. They can be purcahsed for about $10-$15 and with a little knowledge can be replaced by anyone. Check the internet for both the battery and replacement instructions. eBay is a great place to find the battery and most places even include the needed tools

Mp3 playr yp-k3 wont turn on after being charged, we only brought it a week ago and has never worked. Weve tryed resettin the player but still wont turn on.


take it back. it is not worth the trouble if you've only bought it for a week.
if it is a lion battery like the creative mp3s, then charge it for at least a day to begin with.

Recharging mp3


Whenever the PD-6070 is connected to a PC, it will charge. The battery indicator on the OLED screen will slowly fill over and over as it is charging. When the charging is complete, the battery indicator will stay filled.
