Notes on use

The following descriptions are important for using your Walkman. Be sure to follow the instructions below.

  • Do not touch the rechargeable battery with bare hands if it is leaking. Consult your nearest Sony dealer if the battery has leaked, as battery liquid may remain in your Walkman. If the liquid gets into your eyes, do not rub your eyes as this may lead to blindness. Wash out your eyes with clean water and consult a doctor.

    If the liquid gets onto your body or clothes, wash it off immediately. Failure to do so may cause burns or injury. Consult a doctor if you are burned or injured by the liquid from the battery.

  • If your Walkman causes interference to radio or television reception, turn the Walkman off and move it away from the radio or television.
  • Mild tingling may be felt on your ears in particularly dry air conditions. This is a result of static electricity accumulated in the body, and is not a malfunction of your Walkman.

    This effect can be minimized by wearing clothes made from natural materials.

  • When using a strap (not supplied), be careful to avoid catching it on objects you pass by.

    Also, be careful not to swing your Walkman by the strap to avoid bumping people.

  • Refrain from using your Walkman as requested by in-flight announcements during takeoff or landing in an aircraft.
  • If you see lightning or hear thunder, take off the headphones immediately and refrain from using your Walkman.
  • If you experience an allergic reaction to the supplied headphones, stop using them immediately and contact a doctor.

Notes on usage environment

  • Never use your Walkman where it will be subjected to extreme light, temperatures, humidity or vibration. For example, never leave the Walkman in a car parked in the sun or in direct sunlight. It may become discolored, distorted or damaged.
  • Do not leave your Walkman in a place subject to excessive dust.
  • Do not leave your Walkman on an unstable surface or in an inclined position.

Notes on handling your Walkman

  • When unplugging the headphones from your Walkman, make sure to hold the headphone plug. Pulling by the headphone cord itself may damage it.
  • Do not apply strong force to the surface of the Display. This may cause a distortion in colors or brightness, or cause a malfunction of the Display.
  • Be sure to follow the precautions below when using your Walkman. Failure to do so may warp the casing or cause the Walkman to malfunction.
    • Do not sit down with the Walkman in your back pocket.

    • Do not put your Walkman in a bag with the headphones/earphones cord wrapped around it and subject the bag to strong impact.

Notes on protecting your Walkman from getting wet

  • Do not expose your Walkman to water. The Walkman is not waterproof. Be sure to follow the precautions below.
    • Be careful not to drop your Walkman into a sink or other container filled with water.
    • Do not use your Walkman in humid locations or wet weather such as rain or snow.
    • Do not get your Walkman wet.

      If you touch your Walkman with wet hands or put the Walkman in a damp article of clothing, the Walkman may get wet, which may cause a malfunction.
