Hi,

Formatting is available only while playback is stopped.
If the OPR lamp lights red due to low remaining battery power, the player cannot be formatted.
All data stored on the player will be erased.
The Content Transfer software included with the player will also be deleted.
If necessary, download Content Transfer from the customer support web site.
The settings of shuffle playback, playlist playback, ZAPPIN playback, and AVLS (volume limit) also return to their defaults.
Follow the steps below to format the Player.
1 Unite the left and right parts to turn off the player.
2 Separate the left and right parts.
3 Press and hold the jog lever for about 15 seconds until the status lamp blinks quickly. Release the jog lever. The OPR lamp lights red.
4 Move the jog lever forward or backward within 30 seconds after the OPR lamp lights red. The status lamp turns off. The OPR lamp lights alternately green and red each time you move the jog lever.
5 Press the jog lever while the OPR lamp lights green. The OPR lamp blinks green quickly and formatting is executed. When the OPR lamp turns off, formatting is complete. If you press the jog lever while the OPR lamp lights red, or if 30 seconds have passed, formatting will be canceled.

Thanks for contacting FixYa.

I have a sony walkman NWZ-W252 the only number i can find is the serial number 5052051 and it is not being recognized by my computer when i try to install it it says its corrupt


On a Windows OS you might need to go to go to the "Device Manager" (google it please) and when the device is connected and there is a problem it should show you the device with a yellow mark next to it.
Right click it (make sure it's the one for the mp3 player) and choose 'uninstall'. Disconnect the mp3 player, wait a few seconds and reconnect.
Make sure the computer is connected to the Internet.
Try connecting it to different computers to see if it makes a difference, if not then your mp3 player may have developed a fault.

Not working !


I have the very same issue yesterday and i sent it to a service centre about an hour ago. they were strangely very willing to replace faulty units with a newer model at no charge if item is still within warranty. Mine already passed the warranty and still they are willing to let me trade in the old unit at 80% of what i paid and pay only 20% of new item.

Strongly suspect that this is a **** product and many people are facing the same issue. Screw Sony!

HOW TO OPEN THE NWZ W252 PLAYER ?


Here is the official manual online: Sony NWZ-W252 MP3 Player

When you mean "How to open", do you mean How do you open the player on your computer? If that's the case, if you have a Windows based Operating System, you should be able to just to to "My Computer". then once you have connected the mp3 player to the PC, the mp3 player will show up as an extra storage Hard Drive logo on screen. Once that appears you can drag and drop MP3 music files onto the device.

Hope this helps!

Can not start mp player error genarate memory is full


Your mp3 player is so full that it does not even have enough space to run a Repair. Connect the Philips to the computer, double-click My Computer, right click the Philips icon, and select Format --> Fat32 (or whatever is appropriate for your computer). Normally, I would not reccomend this type of formatting for a Philips, but it is probably our only chance at this point. After conducting the format, try the Repair in Philips Device Manager again.

Warning: All of your songs/files will be erased.

Maybe the memory is full.

There are two ways to format an Mp3 player - one on the computer itself, and one in Windows Media Player. Both methods will end up erasing all the songs on the player, but the player will be "good as new" after that. Sometimes reformatting in this manner will override the player's native formatting and cause problems - this can be reversed in most cases by updating the player's firmware. Firmware upgrades are available from most manufacturers' websites.

WARNING: The following procedures will erase all songs on the player.

Check if the file system is NTFS. If yes, format it to FAT or FAT32. - Connect player to computer, double-click my computer, right click on icon of mp3 player and select format. This only applies to Windows-based computers.
You can also format the player in Windows Media Player itself:
Connect your Mp3 player to the computer and open Windows Media Player. Click on the Sync tab. Pull down the drop down menu underneath the Sync tab by moving your cursor over the Sync tab and left clicking on the little black arrow underneath the Sync tab. Highlight "name of Mp3 player here 1GB" (wording may vary slightly), and then select "Format." - this should erase everything.

Erasing songs


Have you tried formatting the player as if it were a drive?
Hit the windows start button at lower left of screen, then my computer. The Pearl should show up as a drive , would maybe look something like the following: Pearl:F or RCA:H. Right click with mouse and format drive/player should be an option. That should do the trick. However, you may want to consult your manual for formatting instructions as this can sometimes corrupt the player if not formatted correctly.

Formatting


Hi,

If for some reason the Format option is gone, then perhaps some of the firmware or settings have been drastically changed or worst, corrupted.

A couple of things you can try:
a. do a soft reset - press on the Power/Menu for 15 seconds;
b. do a full settings reset - Main Menu/Settings/Reset All;
c. do a Format - Main Menu/Settings/Format but all in the internal memory will be erased;

If the above will not work, you can also try:
1. download and run in your PC Sansa Connect Recovery Tool
2. read the How to use the Sansa Connect Recovery Tool and follow the instructions carefully;
3. doing #1 will erase the corrupted files, unfortunately so with everything else. It will then restore the device software to an uncorrupted state.

Hope this be of help/ Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.
