Walkman NWZ-e438 charging problem
so my Walkman NWZ-e438 isn't charging the thing is the screen the shows it's connected to the computer is showing the battery is full but after removing it from the charge and turning it on it shows the welcome screen then turns off 2 seconds after. I checked the batter level through the computer ( right clicking on the walkman choosing properties ) it showed me the battery level is 13%. by the i just got a new charger cause the old one broke and the walkman hasn't been used in about 6 months

Lithium batteries can be damaged by remaining discharged for too long. That may have happened with your player. There's also a chance that the battery needs to slowly charge for a while to "reset" itself to be able to take a full charge. There's just no telling either way.

I've brought a couple of batteries back to life by using a USB wall charger that produces the standard 5 volts. I let them stay connected for a day or so then disconnected and reconnected them.

You could try that and see if it helps here. Unfortunately I've had many more that stayed dead.
