Smile Sony NW-S746 Battery Replacement Tutorial

I had this problem thus I created this tutorial. I didn't take any photos on the process but since you mentioned it, I dismantle it again. Hope its good enough to be understood.

Steps to dismantle and do a battery replacement for Sony NW-S746



1. Unscrew both screws behind.


2. Now using your finger nail, carefully pry the keypad panel. (its attached using double sided tape)


3. Now after removing the keypad plate, unscrew the following screw.


4. Now to remove the back cover plate, you'll have to pry on the lower right corner with your fingernail. Once you have it lifted a bit, try to pry it more in the lower center part near the usb port.


5. Now you should have the following dismantle so far.


6. To remove the battery, its secured by these 3 yellow tape. Carefully lift them up from the battery.


7. Now your able to lift the battery out and get the battery part number. You can google it up and see which store offers it. Like the battery used here, it can be order from Here


8. Now once you receive your battery replacement. You need to use a solder to remove the old battery's wire attached to the pcb, and solder the new battery's wire.


9. Reassemble it all back together, and start charging the battery like you just bought the Walkman on the first day!

Great post. Is it possible to do the same with the NW-S765?. Only got mine recently, but would be great to know I could do it eventually......I tend to keep my player(s) for a long time .

The inside part of the NW-S765 should be similar to the NW-S746 but probably with a slight different in terms of screw placement or the process of opening it or even the battery used. I can't guaranty you this because i have never open anything other then the NW-S746.

The best thing is to wait for the warranty to run out so you dont void anything, and slowly carefully dismantle it at your own risk.

Thanks.

Obviously no-one will want to open theirs till the warranty runs out, but if anyone reading this does, can they please post the exact battery part number. I wouldn't mind stocking up on a few myself, for when the inevitable happens.
