Question about Sony NWZ-B103FBLK MP3 Player

1 Answer

My NWZ-B105F goes on (battery full) but when I press the play/pause button to activate ANY option (e.g. Music Library), the player shuts off. When connected to the USB port it says "USB Connect" but I cannot access the unit (e.g. can't copy an mp3 file to it). Also, I tried updating the firmware but it looks like that routine cannot "find" the Walkman. I've tired to reset it numerous times with no positive result. Sony tech support in an on-line chat told me "it has an internal malfunction." lol Thanks.

Press and hold the Reset button for 30 seconds then try playing the songs. If the issue persists then format the walkman then reload all the musics and try playing back.

My sony Mp3 is not working


I tried something and it seemed to work ( though how long it will lst I don't know ).

1. Let the battery go dead
2. Put the player in the USB port
3. Update with latest Flash Driver ( check the format option )
4. When finished, remove from the USB port WITHOUT disabling the port through Windows ( just pull it out )
5. Hold down the play button and keep it held down.
6. Navigate to Settings.
7. Go to Restart option and click ok. You have to be quick here since you have to release the Play button. Once you get to the next level , keep the play button pressed or else it will shut off
8. Once it says restart is complete, press power button to shut it off.
9. If you have enough power, give it a try otherwise plug it back in USB port for about 5 to 10 min to get a charge.
10. Remove from USB port the same way as before.

HELP ME PLEASE with my "sony walkman NWZ-B105F MP3 PLAYER."


make sure your downloading it to the right folder on the mp3 player its usualy the music folder or you can try and use windows media player here are some instructions for that option.
--**Windows Media Player**--
If you have a large playlist to transfer, you may prefer to do it from your media player, such as Windows Media Player. Once your MP3 player is connected to the computer, open Windows Media Player. Click on the "Sync Music" tab. Drag songs that you want from your Windows Media Library over to the "Sync Music" column to create a playlist. Click the "Begin Sync" tab at the bottom once you have all of the songs on your playlist. This action will sync all of the songs to your MP3 player with one click. Disconnect your device once songs have been transferred by clicking on the "Safely Remove Hardware" icon in the bottom-right side of the desktop tray.
