Question about Sony Walkman NWZ-S616F MP3 Player
Well every time I insert the Walkman into the computer or an outlet...A message says LOW BATTERY MUST CHARGE...also the sony Walkman screen logo stays in one place...I have no idea why this is happening
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.

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!

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.
