You can do a DIY battery replacement, but Sony won't help you. Lots of info around on how to do it if you look. Kindle, Sony, iPod/iPad - none of these devices have batteries intended for user replacement and, to be fair, reports of battery failure are few and far between.

As has been said, though, given that the 650 was only launched in the autumn of 2010, it's still going to be under warranty and a faulty battery will be covered.
