    Hi there. I have just bought one of theses players and got scammed by the seller on eBay. I've fixed one on the broken players I received but the second player keeps getting stuck on the welcome, begins to start up then shuts down after about 20 seconds. I guess I should reformat the players Hard drive before I throw it at the wall, but I have no idea how to do it. Anybody able to give instruction?

Screen Freezing

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.

Sony nwa 1200 freezing up

Hi finnchy

Please email me at or visit our website which links to our eBay Shop in which there is a Classified for replacing hard drives for £45 inclusive of parts.

This compares favourably to the £77 which, I am told, Sony charge. If you were to try and source the hard drives on the Internet yourself, they cost between £50 - £100 per piece.

Hope this helps.

Kind Regards,

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:
