Question about Sony Walkman Audio Players & Recorders
New player in its bullet-proof capsule (found while decluttering the garage.)
Probably suffered damp ingress while in storage, and thus some conductive internal corrosion; use a test meter to see if there's any leakage when it's switched off and take it from there...
Either that or use AA Nimh rechargeable batteries

SOURCE: Blinking "disc" error
another thing to do is listen to the unit as it spins up, you may be able to hear the disk spinning (though you can definitly see it if you open it up) and you should also be able to hear the mechanism that moves the optics allong the rail. If you hear that but still no read, you might try opening up the case (6 small phillips screws and then a small bit of prying to open) and look to see if the small thin plastic wireing harness is fully seated in the connector on the main board. If not loosen the small brown retaining clip and push the plastic strap with the traces fully into to connector and push the retaining clip back in. I have fixed 2 d-nf420 units this way.

1. Slap it while it is on but with no disk inside.
2. Make sure batteries touch the metal contacts.
3. Make sure that "hold"(a switch on the side of the player) is not on.
4. are batteries in correctly?
5.if nothing works then chuck it or return it if you can.....
Hope this helps!

There is a switch on the bottom of the unit that puts it in "HOLD" mode. My guess its for use when it is shipped so there will be less chance of damage. Try switching the two position switch to the other position.
