    Same here,i had lost mine, it worked fine when i last used it, found it again but won't charge, have a feeling the battery is at fault as i've let it go to long without charging it which doesn't do any battery any good.

    When I plug/unplug the player into the computer or the USB charger, the player would light up but it would not charge or be recognized by the computer. I have tried to reset/reformat but it would still not work.

What I did when I got this error was to push the reset button on the bottom of the player itself... Mine rebooted and took a charge from the computer. Hope this all works for you.

If none of the above work, try a different USB port. It does not like to connect through a USB hub, and I discovered that the two USB ports in the front of my desktop system simply will not recognize the player. When I plug it into one of the USB ports in the back of my computer, the system recognizes the device and my player charges fine.

Hi, I had the same problem. I have an old computer, so I tried it on my daughter's laptop and it started charging. I bought a Music Power dual port USB AC Charger at Walmart for about $15, plugged it into the wall, and it is charging away. I hope this will solve my problem.

I think my computer just wasn't compatible enough to actually charge it. Hope this helps!

I had the same problem with not able to charge my Sony Walkman, because it kept saying: FULL when I plugged it in my USB, and when I unplugged it, it said LOW BATTERY.

Eventually I tried everything, and something that did help for me was unplugging all my unnecessary USB products. (I had 2 monitors, printer and etc) After unplugging it all I rebooted, and plugged in my Sony Walkman again, and it started charging!
So it's probably a power source problem.

=D

One way to ruin a bettery is to keep running it until it goes completely dead. Digital SONY Walkman devices try to prevent this from happening by not letting you turn it on if the voltage gets below a specified level. One thing that helps is to recharge before they get so low they wont power on. Another trick is to recharge it using a wall charger instead of using the USB cable connected to a laptop. They make wall charger units that any USB cable can plug into, and this only supplies the voltage needed to recharge the unit, but bypasses the step of booting up the Walkman, so in many cases you can just plug the device into the wall and it will charge up fine, then after it gets charged enough to boot okay, you can plug it back into your laptop and sync new music, and let it charge from the computer again. If you cant get it to charge with a wall charger, you may have to go through the process of deleting the Walkman device from Device Manager, Portable Devices in Control Panel, but try the wall charger approach first, that has worked for me in some stubborn cases. Good Luck!

    Another trick is to recharge it using a wall charger instead of using a USB cable connected to a laptop. They make wall charger units that any USB cable can plug into, and this only supplies the voltage needed to recharge the unit. When you connect the Walkman to a laptop, the computer assumes it wants to communicate with the Walkman, and tries to boot up the Walkman first before it will charge it. The wall charger bypasses the step of booting up the Walkman, so in many cases you can just plug the device into the wall and it will charge up fine, then after it gets charged enough to boot okay, you can plug it back into your laptop and sync new music, and let it charge from the computer again. I also agree it can help to plug the Walkman cable directly into a USB port on the laptop (i.e. bypass any USB hub, etc. you may have in between), but try the wall charger approach first, it's easy to do, and that has worked for me in some pretty stubborn cases. Good Luck!

If none work, connect the player to the usb port, get yourself a needle and keep pressing the reset button. when it reaches 20% it will charge itself fine.

My sony walkman NWZ-E443 shows power source battery 0.why?


Ifthe rechargeable battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be wornout. Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cyclesand will lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% andgradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up atall. ORThe battery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected thebattery drops off to zero capacity in a very short time. Ifthe battery drops to an unacceptable charge level then the battery needs to bereplaced.

My walkman will not charge. I left it on charge


Hi joanna,
It is probably not turning on due to extremely low battery. Have you been using it for quite a few years? Then there may be a problem with the battery. But before that, please try connecting the player to another USB port on your computer, or removing any USB extensions except what SONY provided, or upgrading your USB driver. If nothing works, I'm afraid you'll have to refer it to a service center.

Nwz-s515 won`t charge


Check for a reset option somewhere in the software, if after reset (or if there is no reset option) it still does not charge then the battery has died. You can call Sony for repairs, it may be under warranty still. If it needs repair head over to Sony's website for repair at:
