Is my Walkman Dead?
 
Yesterday Decided to try out a cable I split and soldered in a small lenght to use with my Tune Tray car stereo.

The cable was from my previous NWZ-A818 a good player indeed and cool form factor.

I think I've shortcircuitted the battery or something because it was super hot and the screnn was having some seizures:D I tought that I had hacked the typical sony play-while-connected-to-computer Lock... Because i was playing music connected to pc. (Sorry my digicam also died a few months ago, it fell to the swimming pool trying to photograph a waterbug)

But computer did not recognize it as a removable storage nor as walkman, not even windows 7 Device stage.

I disconnected it and died and did not turn on, until i connected it to computer, so batt is dead....

I woke up today to connect it and found it in a restarting loop... but right now is working okay. except that It dies when disconnected from power

What i can do? let it die R.I.P Sony walkman NWZ-X1060 (2009-2011)

Checked after a while... Computer stills does not recognize it, so i can't load music into it.

So i am fearing it's dead

I made an assumption based on bolded statement quoted, I assume then this isn't the case anymore. It may have fried something more than just the battery. If you can't get it fixed you could always sell for parts, some have to be salvageable, like the screen ...

It works but... sight.... only connected to PC but PC CANNOT DETECT IT AS A DRIVE NOR MTP... maybe i also shortcirucitted the NAND modules
  • Connected to PC appears in the home screen as normal when disconnected, no longer the "Connected USB" and the rotating wheelie
  • I can browse Internet, youtube apps, use NC, however i don't have any content loaded as i formatted it and pc does not detect it
  • if I disconnect it... a few moments later LOW BATTERY and screen goes off
SO it's completely USELESS, DEAD

To think, I was going to offer you an S639 for almost free (S&H),... ***sigh*** Oh well, happy hunting,...

Yes i will hunt away from sony... why? well In the U.S and in my country, Mexico, sony sony looks us like a bunch of sh** by only topping at 16Gigs WTF????

Even in Mexico we have iPods at 64Gigs or the classic at 160GB, i am considering one... but i must look other brands hier in mexico, we recently got a New BestBuy store :D i want to to see it :cool:

Sony prices in mexico IMO are fu**** expensive.... when i saw the walkman X series it was at $7,999 mexican pesos roughly 800 USD WTF???

I have not heard of other brands of MP3's here, no Zunes, no cowon (?), i doubt of samsung....

I have seen sansas, iPods and Sonys.... and chinese junk players ;)

I am a devot to separate devices... not do-it-all cell phones (iphone ahem ahem) a camera for great shots, a dedicated player for good sound and a just-do-calls& txts cell phone

The DarkSide 09-11-2011 06:43 PM

Ok, none of all that makes sense,...go enjoy yourself.
