Question about Sony Audio Players & Recorders
My Sony WALKMAN mp3 player had been working fine until I needed to charge it. The screen reads ''Low Battery: Charge Now'' but as soon as I plug it in, it reads Full and never actually charges. The device is still able to download songs, and it shows up on my computer's USB status, but it just won't charge. I find it hard to believe that the battery is dead, because I just bought the device over a month ago.
If it is a NW-A1000 I have a copy of the service manual please download it from HERE from deposit files..will be active until 29th November 2009, let me know if you need it for longer.

You can check these on the main board to see it all are present if one is missing this will be why your walkman wont hold any charge.

Remove any USB extension cords you use. I had the same problem, which was solved immediately when I connected the players USB cable directly to the USB port.
