Other Things to Consider

  • Charging time varies depending on conditions of use of the battery.
  • Charge your device in the ambient temperature between 41 °F - 95 °F (5 °C - 35 °C).
  • Your device will get warm during charging. This is not a malfunction.
  • Even if you don't intend to use your device for a long time, charge the battery to its full capacity once every six months to maintain its performance.
  • If you don't use your device for a long time, it may take longer to charge the battery.
  • If the life of the built-in rechargeable battery becomes extremely short, repair may be required.
  • Avoid exposure to extreme temperatures, direct sunlight, moisture, sand, dust, or mechanical shock. Never leave your device in a car parked in the sun.

If the battery still won't charge, repair may be required. Begin the procedure to send your Sony product into a Sony facility to be repaired.
