It keeps turning off


Try recharging the battery if the MP3 player is not turning on. To recharge the battery, connect one end of the USB cable to the USB port on the MP3 player and the other end to an open USB port on your computer.

Press the "Menu" button if the player keeps turning off periodically. Select the "Settings" option in the Menu and select "Power."

Select "Auto Power Off" and turn off the sleep settings.

Try turning the player back on. If it does not turn on, perform a reset. To do this, press and hold the "Power/Menu" button for at least 15 seconds.

How do i reset my mp3 player its just frozen?

How Do I Fix My Sony MP3 Player That Froze & Won't Turn On?

Sony Walkman MP3 players, like most MP3 players, can occasionally freeze up and stop working properly. Fortunately, there are two simple ways of resetting the Walkman system. The first method takes only 10 to 15 seconds to complete and is an effective way to troubleshoot most technical problems you may have with your Walkman. The second method, unfortunately, may take several hours; it requires you to allow the battery to drain completely. Whatever the problem is that's causing your MP3 player to freeze, one or both of these methods should clear it up.


Things You'll Need:

* Paperclip
* Walkman MP3 player charger

Reset Button

Straighten the paperclip and set it aside for now.
Locate the reset button on your Sony MP3 player. On most models, it can be found near the volume control mechanism.
Insert the end of the paperclip into the reset button and hold it down for three to five seconds. When the screen flickers, you'll know that the MP3 player's system has been reset.
Remove the paperclip and wait for the system to reboot.

Battery Drain

Turn on your MP3 player.
Let the battery's life deplete. Since the system is frozen and no music is being played, this will take longer than usual.
Check that the battery is completely depleted. Sometimes the screen just goes dark during this process, but the battery is not actually drained. You can check this by pushing buttons or trying to power up the system.
Connect your MP3 player to its charger and plug it in to a power source. Allow the MP3 player to fully recharge.

Power on the MP3 player. The system should be operating normally again.

Mp3 player discharges while off for a long time

try a factory reset if that fails then maybe your battery is knackered. rechargables don't last forever and depending on how much you drain them and recharge them they can lose their holding capacity. you could probably find a new battery on ebay.

Won't turn on nor recharge

I think i have a solution to your problem. My MP3 did the exact same thing. Try hooking it up with a USB cable and wait a day or 2. Then check it again. Try turning it on and it might work. I'm pretty sure it should work. Good Luck mmdogsrus!

Ignore the error.

Find a pin or a paper clip. Insert the tip to the reset hole (locate next to USB). It will try to reset the system and test the system.

If you see the test / diagnose message, push the reset button again until you see the Bantam logo and the charging indicator.

Another tool you might want to look into is the HDDTool. It's for Philips HDD Audio Jukebox. I've used it to refresh the database successfully. You can find it at

It's a real nice little MP3 player.
Good luck with it.
