  2. Sharp DR470 - Service mode

    I wonder if you can find out Service manual of the same, which can help you enter service mode of this model .
  3. Introduction and Glimpse to what you are after ! Well, I got this MD camera Walkman (Sony’s MD player walkman with camera feature )quite a while back ,but I haven't posted any pictorial or review of it ,but now I’m doing it .. Interesting ! As, far as I know (from reliable source ) Sony originally planned a 5MP camera, but that would have driven up cost, especially at the time when it was launched in 2005 . Illuminated Mini Disc (Due to Luminescence) So, I will first of all like to start of with its pros and cons(little detail ) . Pros : 1. Durable: Soild, Sturdy. 2. Very Good Screen 3.1.3 MP camera but image quality and chromatic aberrations are not very good. 4.1 GB Hi md discs and MD disc. 5. Last is its a collectors model. 6. Rechargeable battery. 7. Sony only Walkman with Camera feature . 8. G protection prevents skipping etc Con's 1. very few now . 2. Battery life is terrible (one needs to keep extra battery that’s comes with it ) 3. Writing time on the disc is little slow after taking a picture. 4. Only downloader, no recording possible like with other MD models. 5. Pricey. Technical Details: • Integrated 1.3 Mega pixels CMOS digital still camera. • Still camera functions: auto focus, self timer, macro, flash • 1.5 inch TFT full color LCD screen • Simultaneous music and slide show playback • Jpeg image viewer (Displays DCF standard compliant images stored from PCs) • Can record music and still pictures together on the same 1GB Hi-MD disc • Direct playback: ATRAC / MP3 • Linear PCM high sound quality recording & playback • Long battery life of up to 14 hours (approximately) • Unique charging and recording (USB) cradle. Packing: Box is of normal recycled cardboard (Sony is quite concerned about environment .Good to see that.) and the picture of the box gives you an idea ,what’s really there in the box. There is a inner box and an outer box (already explained).Inner box has two compartments one holding accessories and one holding walkman + Manual . Box (Covers) Body/Construction: When you first hold it for the first time it feels tad heavy. Its construction is really good and body looks rock solid to last for a long time or one can say its build quality is exceptional. The player is made of Metal (Aluminum) except for the screen, four buttons in the front and Battery lid, which is made of plastic .Screen looks tough ,but I’m using screen protector to protect it from scratches . Width wise speaking , it is quite thick in comparison to other Mini disc players due to in built camera, but it still looks Stylish, Solid and Sturdy. Now days most of the players in the market are made of plastic, this is where it scores. Ergonomically speaking unit fits nicely in hand and Paint fishing is Amazing ,specially the way walkman name is placed, it looks really sexy .

  4. NW-A1000 DIM display

    I guess the fear of OLED display not lasting your lifetime (here it lasted for about 3-4 years I guess without much use ) has come true ,as far a my case is concern .My A1000 display brightness has become very dim .I have to use my hand to cover screen to see anything even in shade (eg room). This is just an update related to OLED screens .I don't expect it to be fixed without getting it replaced.Spending money on the same doesn't make sense .

    If drivers are seperately available via sony website ,then in my opinion do a clean install of Windows 7 ,but before that make sure you have backed up everything from the hdd.If you haven't ,then remove the hdd from the laptop and plug into the pc sata port ,then you can easily back up all the stuff you want .
