How long will the battery last on this MP3 player?
This Sony MP3 player has a long lasting battery that will last even longer with up to 20 hours on continuous playback. This gives you plenty of time to enjoy your music on long journeys. With the MP3 player also having a standard USB plug for charging, you are able to charge this device with any normal USB plug to keep topped up while you are away.

How do I search for music with this player?
The Sony B183 utilises several search parameters so you can find your music quickly and easily. You are able to search by artist and album as well as by genre and even year of release. So, if you have a favourite artist, genre of music or even a favourite year, you will be able to find the songs in no time.

Does the Sony B183 have any special features?
The MP3 player utilises a function called ZAPPIN. When you press the ZAP button you will be played a short preview of each track. The time of each preview is adjustable from four seconds to fifteen seconds giving you enough time to decide on whether you want to listen to that track or not.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don't buy - not user friendly. Bought this for Christmas, would work on one PCs' but not others. Showed battery full but wouldn't play. Put on charge and had to reset multiple times (as per instructions). Labourious to use, buy something else. Took it back for a refund

My Sony mp3 says its full even only has 20 albums, what's wrong.

Asked by: Katrina
This could be due to many factors such as the length of the albums or the bit rate of the audio files could be high which would mean the file sizes are larger than normal.

After repeated recharges does the playing time get less-and if so,can i upload tunes from the old mp3 player to a computer,then reload them back onto to a brand new mp3 player,instead of buying the same tunes all over again.

Asked by: mp3noobie

Does this mp3 player have an auto sleep/ auto off function?

Asked by: Ruth
If music playback is paused and no operations are attempted for a certain period of time, your Walkman turns off automatically, except when the FM radio is activated. The display will be turned off if you do not attempt an operation for a certain period of time. In such cases, press the BACK/HOME button to turn the display back on
