Question about Audio Players & Recorders
I have to agree with thecarse56 I have the same problem, only I've already disassebled mine. It
locks up when ever there is a "change" (ie synching, charging) to what it is doing at the moment. It works open, (until firware has to think) but not when put back together. This points to a 'pressure' problem.
If you haven't voided your warranty like me...send it in for repair.

Mine has a sort of the same prob. i Think mine might be the USB cable. but my prob is that when i hook it up, it either takes forever for the computer to notice it or it doesn't show up at all. When i first got it, it would automatically be picked up by the computer, but now, it barely, if not gets picked up at all. :'( im soo sad i hope this is not the end.

Same walkman, same problem. Mine is still in the 1 year warranty period and was repaired for free. I thought it might be the battery, but was wrong. Invoice that the authorized Sony repair depot showed they changed a board that would have cost me $224.00. Lost most of what was downloaded to it.
I then purchased a 2 year extended warranty for $24.00.

SOURCE: MY SONY NWZ-S615F got dropped...
Mine has been doing the same thing. There is a reset button that I have been pushing (near the plug), but when I plug mine in to an external charger it locks up again.
Still looking for a solution.
