Hi. During play my player just stopped working. When I try to switch it back on the spinning disc appears for a moment then it switches itself off. The player is 'ticking' when i try this. Any ideas? Thanks.
I had this problem and even bought a new battery for it. that didnt solve the problem.i kept resetting it with no joy. i ended up getting REALLY REALLY annoyed with it and whacked it on the computer desk( quite hard that at first i thought i had broken it) low and behold its working again!my thought was that if it is knackered then whacking it hard is not going to do much harm is it?
When you have the player stop working and the 'spinning disk' appears, do not bother pressing the reset button-this only switches the unit off. Try giving the unit a sharp shock by dropping it on a carpeted floor from no more than 9-12 inches or holding the unit in your hand and hitting your leg, again with a sharp hit. What ever is skipping in the unit stops and normal operation is resumed. Try not to break your unit by dropping it or hitting it with too much force!
Try connecting your player to the USB cable to ensure that it is being charged before attempting to turn it on again. You may have to leave it for a short while to get enough charge to start up.
Also, try pressing the reset button on the player and see if that makes a difference (You won't loose any songs while doing this)

Switch player on.
Open tray (with no disc).
On remote Press Setup.
Then press 1 3 8 9
A new menu screen will appear with some interesting data, including the currently set Region code.
Set the Region to 0.
Press 'OK' on the remote control.
Turn the player off and then back on again, using the remote control.
It's unlikely that you've broken it - you appear to be using the wrong method for switching it off.
Correct instructions for turning Progressive (P) Scan off:
1. Remove any disc from the unit and close the disc tray. 2. Wait for the "NO DISC" message to appear on the display 3. Press and hold the "STOP" button on the front of the unit for at least 5 seconds then release.
The video output should return to the normal setting and "P/SCAN" should disappear from the display on the front of the player.
If you are still unable to switch P/SCAN off, please post back for further assistance.
I had the same Problem, player was only 13months old when the error HO2 appeared (typical huh?) anyway 2 years of this thing getting shifted from cupboard,wardrobe,attic, (did'n't want to throw it out cause it cost me £700), finally it came to fix it or bin it time. scoured the net to no avail, lost the rag and half dismantled it..then during all of this ( oops I'm going on a bit LOL)
you can hear a sound as though the disc is trying to be read, after 100's of attempts to get it to work, I finally noticed the disc had not changed position. (disc was not spinning) pointed to the Motor??
what I did to fix this was unplug from main's, remove top cover until you can see the top of the dvd disc, got hold of a pencil with a rubber on one end, plug back in, switch power on, and gently pushed top of disc ( clockwise ) and it kick started it off
that was over 3 years ago and the player is still going strong
I know its a bit rough, but nothing ventured nothing gained ;)
The problem may be in the power supply, it could be dry (cold joints in the USA) joints that are giving you problems. If you have the manual try checking the voltages at the power supply before and after you get the problem. It could be that once the jukebox is aired that the problem starts.
With no disc in the player and the drawer closed, press stop, stop, setup, then 3,8,8,8,3 and the desired region code, (0 for multiregion). Nothing will appear on screen. Then switch the player off and back on. It should now play discs for any region.
If you get the spinning disc error on your sony nw a1000 it means the hardrive is knackerd.
The hardrive in the sony NW A1000 is a segate ST1.2 6gb and these can be bought off ebay for around £8. If you can't find a 6gb one you can fit an 8gb hardrive BUT your NW A1000 will only use 6gb of it.
If you search on the internet you can find instructions on how to remove the back cover of your NW A1000 which is very easy to do! You then unplug the hardrive (be very careful!) and replace it with the new seagate hardrive. Turn the NW A1000 on and go to the home menu, select "settings", then select "intialize disc" and it will format your new hardrive so that it can work with NW A1000.
Check the small signal transistors BC338 and BC328, they're under the transport mech and will be near where the spindle motor plugs in to the PCB. One of the transistors acts as a brake which momentarily puts the motor in reverse polarity to stop the CD rotating during 'stop' or 'open tray' modes. The reason the CD is spinning backwards is that the transistor which drives the spindle motor forwards during playback is faulty and is triggering the braking transistor hence spinning backwards. The transistors should be 'BC328-25' / 'BC338-25' (25v) Replace these and all should be well.
