If your in the UE you may have a EU volume restricted Sony (al la France),..................nothing can be done to up the volume.

Or, try pushing the headphone plug all the way into the headphone jack,............you would be surprised at how many of us have made this same mistake in the past.

Do not take Europe for France. This is only done with those players sold in France and ONLY in France. I bought mine in the UK and it is not restricted.

If it is really locked then there is no way to unlock it. The only way in my opinion is to get a good pair of headphones that are sensitive and will give you more juice.
