Being over 5 years, I know these batteries don't last that long typically. But even if you change the battery this problem still occurs, I see:
Get your multimeter and try measuring the battery voltage when they were out and when they were in with the thing turned on. If the volts don't change more than millivots (small), then it's not the batteries.
Check the REC OUT to make sure it's not set to PHONO it should be on SOURCE. You should be able to hear a little bit of static if it's normal.
Did you try changing channels? I thought the channel switch was a rotating knob, but it's not -- it's a push button that toggles from 1 to 2 to 3, and takes a few seconds to auto-fine tune on the frequency. Try changing the frequency and waiting five to ten seconds between button pushes to see what happens.
You really should get some new batteries if the above information doesn't resolve it, new AAA rechargeable batteries should.

I have the MDR-RF970R but I bet the battery is the same. If you have had the headphone for seceral years then I bet you are right, the battery is going. You might try using them till the battery dies and then recharge. This is called deep cycle and may time it will extend the life of rechargables.
If the headphones are new, then just check and make sure that they going all the way into the charge slot.
I will say it is not common for me to see the light off, but I use the headphones all the time.
