Re: the battery conection to the board
The manual pretty clearly states not to replace the battery - the manufacturer usually has a way to fix any issue you are having with the player. Now that you have damaged the player yourself, your warranty is voided. sorry about your luck

It can be 1 of 4 things. 1: the way your charging it. 2: the cable. 3: the battery. 4: the conection on your device. 1: Try charging it different ways. (Different wall outlet, laptop, computer, etc.) (Note: some laptops and/or computers might not have a strong enough charge to recharge certain devices. You'd have to adjust the power setting in the control panel or the manufacturers setings.) 2: Try using a different cable. (If you don't have one try wigleing both ends to see if you get a charge.) 3. Try another battery. (Most people overcharge batteries thus shortening the recharging capabilities.) 4. Check to see if any of the pins are messed up or missing on where you plug the wire into your device. (If any are missing you can open it up and replace the part.) Sometimes people end up pushing them in by accident when they conect there charger, so the wire doesn't make a good conection after a while (another case where wiggleing the wire could work).
Try a new USB cord and make sure your driver is updated. Try a different USB port on your PC as well. They can go bad. You may try to remove the battery for a minute and then reinstall the battery and see if that resets it and has any effect.
The battery can be changed only at Sony service centers, as per the manual. Please take it to a nearby Sony center to evaluate if you indeed need a battery change, and get them to do it right away.
Battery is bad. If you use a dock most of the time, it is overcharging or never gets the chance to relearn its capacity. If it just shows low battery but will still work, just run it with a low battery until it shuts off. Then recharge it completely. Do this three times. If no improvement, you need to replace the battery.
the above memory stick which will turn on but after between 3 to 10
secs it shows either the shut down screen and turns off or just shuts
off any way.. then it will just keep starting and turning off untill i pull the battery out or put the key lock on. ive
rechaged my battery but hasnt improved at all.the only way i can get i
to act noamaly though ( at least briefly ) is to conect to computer and
delete all music stuf and relaod it. but it works fine for a while but
just goes back to square one..
Have to completlydissaemble unit. Not hard but fiddley and tiny parts. Remove top custom color plate with fingernail. remove 2
phillips screws and set aside on nonslip surface (tissue). slide top plate with view screen away form usb connector 1/16 inch to unclip and lift off. Slide Metal belt clip left or towards usb port side (carful not to scratch ld viewscreen. and set aside. Remove 2 philips screws holding circut board and lcd (Set aside seperat from other screws as shorter and must go back samme place.
Fingernail out whit clip over usb port and set aside. Lift entire circutboard/lcd unit on left side (usb port) up and slde out that end so as not to catch volume control . Carful of battery leads.
(CAREFUL OF ROCKER SWITCH INSERTS ON EACH SIDE NOTE HOW SEATED AS THEY TEND TO FALL OUT BUT EASY TO REPOSITION IF YOU LOOK BEFOR THEY DO)
Raise far enough to get fingernails on battery terminal clip ON BOTTOM OF CIRCUT BOARD and pull straight off. ( note polarity as clip will fit back on either way but only 1 works and reverse polarity may damage unit. Wafer battery will pull right out of case and haspolarity +/- marked with numbers (assume model or part number)
DON'T DO IT! I was SO EXCITED to find this post 2 days after it went up. It addressed exactly the problem I'd been having with my YH-920 (getting maybe 30-40 minutes off a charge). I ordered from the suggested supplier (not cheap at today's exchange rate) and eagerly tore into the project Thanksgiving night. Disassembling the player is as easy as advertised, but the replacement battery simply DOES NOT FIT the machine. Batteryupgrade.com advertises it as a replacement for the YH-920, and the package is stickered with the same information, but it's between 1/16th and 1/8th inch too long for the battery bay. Trying to make it work destroyed my MP3 player ("device can't initialize HDD," a message I still get after reinstalling the original battery). Now I'm trying to get a refund. Wish me luck.
