Question about Sony Walkman WM-FX290 Personal Cassette Player

Need instructions on how to use my walkman

I lost the instructions on how to use my never been used new walkman. It has the weatherband, AM, FM, 40 presets, TV, and cassette player. I can't figure it out. Took it to Best Buy and he didn't know either. Can I get a set of instructions? I'm a 74 year old female and need lots of help with these modern gadgets. I'm not familiar with these new things and the names of the parts. I don't know anyone who can help me. Please HELP ME!!!!!!!!!!! I have a cord to use it with my Bose radio. That only has a CD player and I have so many nice cassettes but nothing to play them on. But when I plug the player into the radio and put the radio on auxilliary nothing happens. I can't figure out any of the switches.

    where is your "trouble-shooting forums"? What does "you can find the problem thread in your FixYa profile"mean.

    I don't understand any of that. Foam

No, I did not solve my problem. I thought your service was free and I cannot afford to pay you to tell me how to get a set of directions on how to use it. Thank you for answering my letter. Foam

Turn walkman off


If it's a tape player with a stop button it should turn off by just pressing stop. If there is a radio then there then there should be an off position where you select if you want to listen to the radio or listen to the tape.

My Sony Walkman WM -SR10 is not recording and the cassette tape is not working. Only the radio is player. And I cannot get another one to buy even its not the same. Can you help me


Hello aga2958,
I think you need to visit maintenance center to fix that cause its hardware problem.
But you can check somethings before u visit them .. like:
1. If you are using Batteries to power up the Walkman .. be sure the batteries are full charged.
2. Try to power on the Walkman by Adapter 3 Volts.
3. Be sure the tapes you are using are fine into other Cassette.
Thanks for using FixYa.

How to pre set satitions


Your Sony is equiped for 5 AM presets and 15 FM presets.

1. Power your unit "ON".
2. Set the desired band - AM or FM.
3. Hold the "Mode" button down no more than one second. The "preset" indication just be gone.
4. Manually tune in the desired station you want to preset.
5. Hold "Enter" until preset indication re-appears. The number of the preset should be blinking.
6. Using the tuning buttons, change the the number to your desired "preset" number.
7. Push the "Enter" button to set the preset.

Remember, you can't have more than 5 AM presets (a mistake I made).
