Sony walkman NZ-E353 was working fine both alone and attached too a docking station. Next day it won't come on and keeps flashing "HOLD" before turing off.Battery is fully charged. Please...

I'm sorry that the Walkman Player is not turning ON normally and displaying "HOLD" message. The "HOLD" message indicates that the Walkman player is set to HOLD mode by sliding the HOLD button on the right side. Please make sure that the HOLD switch is not activated.

If the issue persists after moving it from HOLD position, please reset the Walkman player by pressing the reset button using a sharp pointed object. The reset button is located on the rear of the unit.

Thanks for understanding. Please let me know if you require any clarification.

On hold... cancel Hold function to activate

This is not an issue with the Walkman player. You can resolve this by sliding the HOLD switch located at the side panel of the Walkman Player (Model specific).
HOLD switch is used to protect the Player against accidental operation. By sliding the HOLD switch in the direction of the ">", all the buttons are disabled. If you slide the HOLD switch to the opposite direction, the HOLD function is released.

Why does it say hold on my cd player when its closed ?

There is a "hold" button on the device that works like a key lock on your cell phone.

Find the hold button and switch it to the other position and you will be able to use your device normally.

Once you have put your CD player in a mode that you want, then you switch the hold button on so that you won't accidentally hit any buttons. You can then safely put the CD player in a pocket and not have to worry about it.

I hope this helps.
