Question about Sony NW-A1000 MP3 Player

1 Answer

Short Battery Life

I;ve had my Sony Nw-A1000 for about 2 years now and recently the battery life seems to be greatly reduced. For example I let the battery run down to completely flat and recharged it until the red light went out on the charging lead. I then began to use the MP3 player as ususal and found that after about 30 minutes of play the battery was nealy flat again.

Am I going to have to get a new battery for it?

The battery could be worn out. Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles and will lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% and gradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up at all. OR The battery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected the battery drops off to zero capacity in a very short time. If the battery drops to an unacceptable charge level then the battery needs to be replaced.
Rechargeable batteries will fail if stored in a discharged state for long periods.

Battery life seems fairly short. How long should


Hi,
In most laptops the standard idle life is around 3 - 4 hours. The drain from the internet can cut this down to between 1 - 1 and a half hours. Using games is around the same or less than what the internet takes and if your using an office application it is around 3 - 4 hours.
Using the laptop for power hungry multitasking will reduce battery life dramatically.

I'm not sure of your charging regiem but it is possible that you hav not let the batteries become disscharged before they back on the charger, short cycling particular batteries gives them a memory and reduces their life significantly. Most rechargeable batteries have a life of so many cycles, just say its 100 cycles. If you put on charge when battery is only down to 80% and charge it up this counts as 1 cycle. Therefore your battery life would be reduced to 20% of what its capable of. This is only true if short cycling the chargeing of the battery is frequent. Not knowing exactly what your charging habits are or the age of them makes it a guess from me. It otherwise might be a fault in your charging circuit which would require specialist diagnosis.

Dying battery


I would recommend running the battery till it is flat, by playing it for as long as possible, at full volume. Then charge it up for ages, maybe all night. To minimize battery wastage change the brightness to minimum and the display to 15 seconds. The reason the battery dies is because of excessive pressing of buttons. If this fails take your player to one of the specialist Sony Places that will fix it. I believe these are listed in the warranty or the manual that came with the player.

505v battery


If you're talking about digitalkamera.de info, I believe it's incorrect. SONY japan's web page states 1300 shots and 1 hour life for the battery and it still uses the same battery from 505k, NP-FS11. I think it's possible they have reduced the internal circuitry power consumption (in 505v) to reduce battery drain, but the battery itself seems to be identical.
