Fully Charged Sony NWZ-E436F Doesn't Turn On

Sony NWZ-E436F doesn't turn on even though it is fully charged. Almost like HOLD switch won't turn off. Even with HOLD in off position I get the "WALKMAN Every Moment Has its Music" screen for 1 second then blank. I've used the RESET button several times but nothing. When connected by USB the music is still there and accessible and plays through PC speakers. But when disconnected from USB the device simply will not play turn on and won't display anything. Any ideas on how to proceed?

    No, unfortunately nobody did. I ended up returning the unit (I think to Best Buy) who replaced it. The new unit is working but I would not buy another Sony product again. If you can get your money back, do so. Otherwise, this is a very poor MP3 player and the support for the unit is even worse. Shame on Sony.

Sony NWZ-E436F won't switch on for more than half a second

Try charging it up on a different computer. It says in the instructions that they cannot guarantee the charging of the battery on personally assembled or modified computers. I had the same problem with mine on our independent computer shop bought PC, but it is charging up fine now that I've plugged it into my hubby's laptop which was bought in a PC supermarket. I hope this helps.
