I read a guide about how to take apart my Sony nw-hd5h to get rid of dust under the screen. This I followed but I think I must have severed the cable connecting the buttons to the player in doing so as now the stop button won't work.
Anyone got any suggestions.
And does anyone know how much it would be to repair it - without a warranty.
I can't remember - it was such a long time ago.
Here's how I got mine open:
Open up the battery compartment bit and take out the battery. The little door that holds the battery in is made of two parts, a plastic bit and a metal bit. Carefully, pull off the piece of metal (don't worry, the plastic shouldn't break - I've opened mine up a fair few of times and it never has). Once you've got that off, you need to unscrew the bottom two screws and then you should be able to take the case off. If you look at the bottom of the player on the side you put the battery in, you should see a piece of metal poking out from underneath the main casing. You can use this to push the insides of the player out of the case. It will move a bit but then stop, this is because of the little thing for attaching a strap is in the way (on the opposite corner). You need to take this out and then continue pushing the insides out. There will be a small flat cable connecting the buttons to the insides of the player, if you open the little flap holding the cable in place, then you can disconnect it and take the insides all the way out.
I hope this is clear enough

Try formatting the device again using its built-in formatting features.
(WARNING: There is no way you can retrieve your data. Since it has already been formatted, it's assumed that you have backup.)
In your Sony NW-E405 MP3 Player:
1. Press and hold the SEARCH/ MENU button
2. Go to ADVANCED MENU (press the Play/ Stop button)
3. Select FORMAT (press Play/ Stop button)
4. From the opt "Format OK?" select OK (press the Play/ Stop button)
5. Once finished, you can Cancel out.
After these steps, your device should screen out "No Data." From there, you can re-transfer your files.
Hey. Well first, some of the songs that you put in, well...Sony Co. cannot transfer directly, so you would have to use their Sonicstage program, aka the converting button. Like most Sony mp3 players, you need to use Sonicstage to put songs in the mp3 player.
For the Sony NW-E405, simply go to the Transfer menu at the top right of the program, (along where the My Library button is) and select the song. In the middle of the screen should be arrows along with a suitcase looking button. Click the luggage button and a screen should pop out. It should have two choices, a Standard Transfer Mode and a Specified bit rate transfer mode. Click the Specified one and select either the 105kbps (ATRAC 3) or the 132kbps (ATRAC 3) for great sound quality and small memory usage. The others are too big or too bad for sound quality. It should now work.
Now the mp3 player should be able to read it, since it is now in ATRAC 3 version, not the mp3 version.
For the songs with no data, the songs are unquestionably banned from the Sonicstage program either because of illegal data in the mp3 songs or the corruption of the data itself. It happened to me quite a lot. You could try converting it like the top section...some of those songs worked.
Press and hold the search/menu button for half a second in stop mode. The menu screen is displayed. Rotate the shuttle switch to select "Advanced Menu" > and press the play/stop button to confirm. Rotate the shuttle switch to select "Format" and press the play/stop button to confirm. Rotate the shuttle switch to select "OK" and press the play/stop button to confirm. "Formatting..." blinks and start formatting. When formatting is complete "complete" is displayed.
This is how i get rid of the problem "Format Error".
