Question about Sony NWZ-E438F Digital Media Player
This device is less than six months old. It stopped working. It will not show up or connect to a computer. I've tried hitting the reset button. I've tried plugging it into other computers with the usb. Nothing. All that happens when I hit play is that the "Walkman" logo pops up for about one second. Any ideas? I hope this thing is not dead already!
Hi I'm Richard M.R.
about your problems if your familiar in handling small chips and know the basic of handling, like grounding your self to remove static electricity to your body,... open up your device,... and you will see a black and red wire from the battery to the board then all you have to do slowly remove the battery clip in the main board, to disconnect the power source, then leave it about 5 to 10 minutes,... then without returning the clip,... plug the usb while pressing the play button if not working try the reset button,... then when turn on dont unplug it return the battery clip in the main board then MAGIC, charge it then enjoy.....

Please try connecting the Walkman to a different USB port on the Computer and check if that helps.
Please make sure that there is no other USB devices connected to the Computer at the same time.
If there was no change after the player was reset, connect it to the computer and reset it again, leaving it connected.
Keep the Walkman connected to the Computer for 4 hours to fully charge the battery. Then, check whether the Walkman is working properly.
Ensure that the HOLD switch is not activated.
If the issue still persists after performing the steps provided above service of the Walkman is required.

attach the supplied cable directly to the computer's USB port (don't use any other extension cord simultaneously). If that doesn't work, check if you've some problems with your USB driver.
