Hi there

Just read Terms of Use and lost my long reply to your post!

So I'll have to be briefer this time.

Basically, I believe that if it doesn't get past the Every Moment has its Music screen then it is 99.9% hard drive fault in my humble opinion. If it won't get to the main menu then you cannot properly reformat it. If you can, go to Settings, up button once onto re-initialize hard disk and proceed twice with yes and yes. Please be aware though that this will erase all your songs though.

Not sure that I'm allowed to advertise our services here but we sell these on eBay and the majority of the ones we buy in (customer returns) need the hard drive replacing which is also a service we offer.

When I have more time, I will read the Terms of Use fully and, if still unsure, ask the powers that be on this forum (or perhaps they could post here) whether or not I can give out details for you to contact us if you wish to discuss further.

We're in England so shouldn't be a problem.

All the best

I havent heard of the nwa1200 doing that before. i have the same one and mine loads up and plays fine. it could be a technical problem with the product itself, but i wouldnt be able to say for sure im afraid. however the volume button should click back on if u still have it.

This is VERY common in the NWA1200. Don't even bother with Sony, I've tryed its a dead end, but you can still get it fixed. I'm pretty sure FixYa don't allow advertising so please get in contact if you want it fixed: pieshizzle@hotmail.co.uk
