The battery does not hold charge. It is weak. Replace it with same type number. Brand name of the battery isn't a matter, check its type number printed on it.

How long should I charge my sony walkman before using it for the first time?What is the proper procedure?

Well, though there are no hard and fast rules for charging your MP3 player still I would recommend you to charge the player for atleast 2 hours before you start using it. Then ensure that you drain the batteries completely before charging them up again.

Hope you find this helpful.

My Sony Walkman MP3 player will not power on. I thought that it was because the charger was broken, so I bought a new one. To my surprise, it was not the charger.

If the battery was completely dead you may need to leave it plugged in for a few minutes for the battery to be charged enough to turn the unit on. Also sometimes the battery can be so bad that it will no longer take a charge. The charging mechanism inside your GPS may not be charging the battery properly either.

Will not charge--will come on plugged into pc tower,but will not charge

it's charging when plugged into your pc, if it doesn't hold power well you may have a defective battery, plug it in and let it sit for 6-7 hours and see how long the battery holds out. if it doesn't work you have a bad battery.

It won't play my music

Charge the Walkman fully. To charge the battery of the Walkman fully keep it plugged in to the Computer for 4 hours.

Reset the Walkman by pressing the RESET button that is located at the bottom.

You can use any sharp pointed object to press the reset button.

If the issue still persists, then you may format the Walkman only using the FORMAT option in it.
Then transfer the audio files to the Walkman and check whether it works.
Make sure that you transfer the audio files that are supported by the Walkman.
