Issue#686: Sony - Why won't Sony mdr-zx770bn connect to windows 8.1?

  • I recently received a set of these headphones as a birthday present. The purpose was to replace various headsets that I use with my computer and cellphone with a single appliance that connects to all of them, and allows me to use voice recognition software.


    Whilst the audio quality of the headphones with my phone is stupendous the fact remains that I cannot connect to any of the computers that I use. They are all loaded with Windows 8.1, which prompts me to load the device drivers, without which the headphones not an available option for audio output/microphone input. Sony's support site lists no drivers whatsoever for download, and includes the disturbing message that the company does not warrant the compatibility of this product with Windows.


    Surely this should be made clear on the cover of the box so that people do not part with large sums of money for a product that is of no use to them. Or am I missing something? I believe this breaches my consumer rights under Australian law, and I will be seeking a full refund unless Sony provides a satisfactory solution. I look forward to any and all replies!

Still no luck.

  • Issue#186351: Sony - Sony Blu-ray/ DVD player won't connect to Amazon Prime, Netflix or YouTube

    I have a Sony Blu-Ray/ DVD Player Model BDP-S2100 that has worked fine up until today. When I try to connect to Amazon, Netflix, YouTube or really any service on the box it says that it cannot verify the network connection and never completes the connection.

  • Issue#443246: Sony - 2016 XD93 won't connect to hidden wifi network

    Hello Sony, I recently purchased this brand new 55-inch XD93 4K UHD TV (KD55XD9305BU) and I love it but it won't connect to a hidden network... only the public ones. I have seen a lot of this issues on previous/older Sony models which were fixed with a FW update. My older Sony KDL-40NX723 connects to the hidden network signal just fine, as does everything else in my home. It seems silly that Sony missed this one on their 2016 flagship product. For now I have had to use a public alternative signal to connect it to the internet but the TV will not show up on my subnet as long as I do this. I could connect via ethernet but I would prefer not to add more cabling just for that reason. If this could get a fix on a FW update, that would be great. Thank you!

  • Issue#454290: Sony - Why HXR-MC2500 won't connect to computer USB?

    Why HXR-MC2500 won't connect to computer USB? Sony site has generic useless troubleshooting for this model (yes, Sony, of course all software updated and ac power supplies in use and computer/camera all powered down and then restarted, and different USB port selected and etc., PC works with other USB devices fine, etc. etc.). What's worse, their MC2500 support search funnels me into their "Pro" site where there is zero support other than a PDF of the manual and sales page for the camera! Am trying to transfer AVCHD files stored on the internal memory, which are video of type (MTS), filmed in 30fps with shotgun mic audio input. The goal would unlikely be different even if I used an external memory card, since it is the import of files which is the fail. Biggest clue why doesn't work and that it may be because of Sony's design of this camera: The USB adapter which comes with camera oddly has a USB-A female, which implied to me the camera wants to behave as if a computer rather

  • Issue#632639: Sony - Less than three year old Sony Bravia won't connect to the internet

    We've had our Sony Bravia for not quite three years. Initially I was able to use the Smart TV feature with no problems. We have high speed business internet and use the internet a lot. Today I tried to connect and cannot. The connection always fails. I've tried every single troubleshooting suggestion out there, called customer service and tried them all again. The customer service tech finally did a factory reset but again to no avail. The recommendation is that I need to call and have this tv serviced. I can't believe I spent all the money I did on this TV only to have it be junk in two and a half years! When a person buys Sony, they expect it to be a top of the line TV, not something they would have bought for half the price! What is the problem and why is this connection failing after so short a time??

  • Issue#649437: WTS: Sony Bluetooth Noise Cancelling Headphones MDR-ZX770BN

    As good as new. Just bought in Feb so still have warranty. Full package and receipt available. I like the bluetooth for daily commute and use in office. The bluetooth even works with the laptop to make calls with the IM software and call in to teleconference. And then there is a 3.5mm jack for wired use when at home or on flights to watch movies. That covers all usage in one package. Bought then to try out, prefer in-ear headphones so plan to switch and don't intend to hoard this set.

  • Issue#659605: Sony - Vaio PCG 7171L upgraded to Windows 10 on its own and now I can't connect to my WiFi network

    My Vaio PCG 7171L just upgraded to Windows 10 on its own. It prompted me to enter my WiFi network's security key when trying to connect my Internet, but every time I enter my security key, an error says that it cannot connect to the network. The password is definitley correct, and the WiFi is properly working, being that other devices in my home are connected to it without any issues. I have not recently changed the password or anything. I believe this is because the system upgraded to 10. How can I fix this network issue?
