My nwz-s545 is not working properly i have had it for about 4 months now and when i charge it it blinks rapidly and will not cut on properly. the start screen will pop up but it will just freeze and wont go to the menu screen. my pc also will not recognize it and ive tried everything to fix it. i have charged it all night before and the same thing occurs over and over again. should i just buy a new mp3?

On the back of the unit, there should be a small reset button. Pushing and holding that button for about 5 - 10 seconds should reset the unit.
If that doesn't work, you may want to read WarMaiden.org's solution to getting the computer to recognize the Walkman...it may work for you.

The link to the WarMaiden website doesn't seem to exist anymore, but I wrote about a possible solution to get the NWZ-S545 recognized by Windows XP and Windows Vista not too long ago. If you are using either of these operating systems on your computer, give it a try and see if it solves your problem.

    Thanks for the link, but I actually have other problem(it looks similar to sexyred_044's): My walkman worked fine for some time and my computer(windows7) was able to recognise it. But now it just cant turn on: shows the boot screen for about 15 seconds, thens turns off. Now computer sees it, but cannot open its folders, reporting an error(I tried both MPT and non-MTP modes) Reset doesn't help too.

Se apago mi sony nwz s545 y oquiere prender como ago para restablecerlo


This worked on me: I just plugged the USB conection to my "Phillips DVD player with USB conections" insted of plugging it to my PC. So I just played a song on my DVD player and when I stopped the song, turned off the DVD player... I unplugged it from the USB port and !!!!! appeared again what I was waiting for so long: The welcome screen "Every moment has its music." plus the "Creating Library" And finally I said "THANKS GOD!"
*** I tried many ways to find a solution (pressed the RESET buttom, charged the battery... but nothing happened... my screen was totally black = OFF).
Well.. I hope this is helpfull for all of you.

How can I change the background in SONY NWZ-S545


Hi snake 131,
I'm afraid you probably can't. I have one of these things, only one year older, but I have not yet found anything to do with changing appearances or color. I'm afraid it is stuck that way, but you can still check online at http://www.sony-asia.com/support/product/nwz-s545.
