Question about Sony Walkman NWZ-B103F MP3 Player
Check the unit after completing each step:
Confirm that the portable player is connected to a working USB port and that it is charging. If necessary, connect it to a different port. When connected properly, the battery icon will be animated or it will indicate the charge status such as FULL when charging is completed. Make sure that you are pressing the POWER button to turn the player on. Previous Walkman® models that did not have a power button would turn on by pressing any button. This model must have the power button pressed to turn it on.
Ensure that the HOLD function is not activated.
NOTE: For some models, when you use the portable player for the first time, if you have not used it for a long time, or the battery is depleted, it may take up to 5 minutes for it to be recognized or start charging. On models with a display, the display will remain blank. If it the portable player is not recognized or does not begin to charge after waiting 5 minutes, continue with this procedure to reset the unit.
If the portable player is still not responding, reset it by pressing the RESET button with a small pin or similar object.
NOTE: When the RESET button is pressed, although the unit will retain the music data and clock settings, all other stored data and settings may be deleted. If the unit starts up after the reset, access the Settings menu and initialize the unit using the Format (initialize) function.
If there was no change after the player was reset, connect it to the computer and reset it again, leaving it connected.
Check the Sony Support Web site to see if there are any available firmware updates for your model. Updates can be found on the Sony Support Web Site.
If possible, instead of connecting the USB cable to the computer, connect it to a USB AC adapter (if available) and try to charge it.
