When that happens you want to get some thing sharp and hit the reset button on the bottom of the Walkman

SOURCE: My Walkman won't charge

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.

I've been using my Sony Walkman NWZ-S615F.it seems like my player won't connect to my pc the same one I've always used with it. It ran out of battery and when I connect it it switches on but just says...


The same thing happened with my s616f and I just fixed it today. Connect your walkman to the computer to charge it then when the blue screen pops up heres gonna be that blue line going across the screen(the thing that shows that its loading) then while its loading press and hold the back/home and the option/pwr off buttons until it turns on. Hope it works:)

I charge the MP3 player and it still shows "low battery" message.


There is a trick to charging the battery in these small mp3 players. It won't charge if it is turned on, and it won't charges if it's turned off. Here's what to do...
1. plug the player into your USB port. or wall charger
2. switch the player on using the mechanical switch (on the side)
3. turn it off by either holding down the play button, or selecting "System" from the menu
4. The screen will go black and the battery will begin charging.
That is if the battery is still chargeable after all this time. The battery may well require replacing.

Hi lybastr,
I guess you have to let it charge awhile. When the battery gets too low, it might even refuse to go past the welcome screen. Let it charge for an hour or so. If the screen is still stuck on "walkman", then you might have a problem, but that's not common, so rest assured.

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.

Walkman NWZ-S616F doesn't charge when connected to computer.


Here is a link to instructions. I found my fix for frozen S616F was to use the Reset feature. It requires inserting a small pointed object in the hole at bottom of device.

Battery on Sony Walkman NWZ-E436F


ok, just tried something with maybe a solution....

I was connected via an usb hub to my laptop, then it said battery is full, it apparently didn't charge.

When i connect my usb cable directly to my laptop it started to charge again!!.

My usb hub is not connected to a adapter so all power comes from the USB port, this may be not strong enough to charge your walkman.

Try this (so directly connect to your desk / laptop) it may work!

Sony walkman nwz-s18f froze


I had this problem a few days ago and now my sony nwzs18f has different problems, the way i got it to charge back up was by using a usb charger that plugs into a socket rather than into your computer this should hopfully charge it back up and also it should unfreeze the screen.

hope this helps
