Is it possible to open up the NWA-1000? e.g. to replace the battery?


Yeah, of course it is possible, but the only thing is that you've got to be very careful. Usually on mp3 players, the back is usually where the battery is. So I suggest you use something like a flat screw driver to gently open the clips.

Showing no database


Have you connected the player to your PC in Sonic Stage to see if anything is loaded on to it? Once initialized, the hard drive is empty. Transfer just one track and it should try to rebuild the database.
format the hard disc, it''s an option within the menu
Once you have done that, remove all the songs from Sonicstage CP. Get rid of EVERYTHING. Reimport all the songs to Sonicstage again and try to sync the NWA unit.

BATTERY CHANGE FOR NWA 3000


The little disc on the back needs to be taken off. Try slding a knife under it. Then the battery is just a simple connection. Should be simple once the back cover is off

Screen freezing at start up


Does it make a clicking noise when you switch it on, then your hard drive is broken and needs to be replaced.

Sony nwa 1200 freezing up


Hi finnchy

Please email me at grumpygreyhound@googlemail.com or visit our website www.grumpygreyhound.com 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,

Grumpy Greyhound

Nwa-3000 music plays but no screen shows up!!!!


Reset
Update Firmware
Double-check with Sony
Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware.
Wizard.
If fails, then the player is officially dead
