I had a similar problem, mine wouldn’t turn on unless I plugged it in the computer and then it still wouldn’t work!
I found this on Sony’s trouble shooter -
Battery is 100% discharged. Therefore, PC's USB with 5V/500mA set up has not enough power to start up the charging process because loading current is greater than the set up, therefore USB is disabled immediately due to sudden current load.
Battery must not be discharged 100%
If it happens then the supplied AC adaptor must be used firstly because it is providing 5V/800mA power. After a couple of minutes the unit can be connected to PC without problem then it can continue the charging during file transfer, etc.
So I bought a USB adapter charger! Plugged it in and now it is working!

After trying everything imaginable I found a solution! Just send all of your videos to the "My Videos" folder. Then select the ones you want opn your Mp3, and press "move this file" then plug in your Mp3 player and select the folder with its picture next to it and move it to the VIDEO subfolder. Then voila! its on. (You need to convert the videos to MP4 format beforehand)

That may be a non factory modification. Get a small battery and take one pair of those wires and connect to the battery with you fingers on the stripped end of the wires. Listen for scratchy sound and the front and then try the other pair of wires. This will give you an idea on that is going on inside the speaker. Short of using special equipment or opening the speaker enclosure, there is no easy way to tell.

Check the back for a fuse?

Take it to a Sony Service Centre.
