I realize the chances of getting a response in this forum in late 2015 are pretty slim but what the hell, - here goes nothing.
has anyone ever tried opening up their F800 or F880 series Walkman and replacing the battery? my F807 doesn't have the battery life it used to and i found THIS ->http://docteur-gsm.com/en/sony-walkman-f800-series/31125-sony-walkman-f800-series-battery.html
and am wondering if a.) it is in fact the right battery b.) if it would work and c.) how the hell to get my Walkman open to replace it
any/all feedback welcome, thanks.
I've been having battery issues with my F807 for about seven months now,it only charges to 90% and will still play music for around 10 hours so long as i don't do too much searching or change the artist/album too often in a short span of time.
although last night i was listening to an album and my battery showed it had approximately 55% left when suddenly i heard that dreaded beeping sound and the player shut itself down,it has done this on a couple occasions since I started having battery issues,and after a recharge it seems to play fine again.
I do have to say in the 2.5 years I've owned this player I've used it every singe day for anywhere from 3 up to 10 hours a day - so the battery no doubt will need to be replaced soon and so far the only place i've found who sell replacement batteries for the F800 Walkman series is this site http://docteur-gsm.com/en/sony-walkman-f800-series/31125-sony-walkman-f800-series-battery.html
they offer two options,one is an external battery which you plug into the Walkman's usb port (and is not exactly slim) but they also offer an internal replacement battery - I haven't ordered either one yet because so far (knock on wood) my F807 is still hanging in there.
I also own an A-17 and an older E-345 both of which still work great, although neither of them have seen the hours my F807 has because to my ears the F807 offers better soundstage and detail retrieval than either the A-17 or the E-345 (don't get me wrong they are all great players,but the F807 has the best overall sound quality,especially noticeable when using higher end headphones).
the only reason i haven't ordered both those batteries yet is that my Walkman is still hanging in there ,also i have no idea how to take my F807 apart or to replace the battery ,but i imagine I will order both those batteries in the next couple of months just to have for when the day comes that my F807 won't take a charge.when i do i'll post back here how it works out,but it could be a couple months.if anyone else knows any resources for replacement batteries and how to tear down the F800 Walkman and replace the internal battery please share that information here.
EDIT: here is the link for the external battery.it appears thicker than the Walkman (by about twice as much) and while it would be better than not having a working unit,by the time you add that to your Walkman and DAC/Amp if you use one ..well it kind of defeats the idea of portability.for indoors listening it would be great though and it's quite a bit less expensive than buying a new Walkman.http://docteur-gsm.com/en/sony-walkman-f800-series/31127-external-battery-4400mah-sony-walkman-f800-series.html
