I don't own a Sony, but this seems like a battery problem. BTW, what series is your Sony?
Are you saying that you haven't charged it in two years -- not an accusation, I just want to be sure I understand the problem. In this case the battery may have discharged completely. As a safety factor to prevent problems with very old batteries, most chargers will not charge a battery that has completely discharged.
I believe most Sony MP3 players charge through their USB ports. You might have a chance if you leave your player plugged in to charge overnight (or for a day). If the battery is completely shot, this won't hurt anything -- but if the battery is marginal this might bring the charge up to the point where it can recharge in a normal period of time.
If you don't see results after being hooked up for a day, I'd say it's most likely a completely dead battery. Unfortunately, most MP3 players these days aren't designed to have the batteries replaceable. It can still (usually) be done, but it's a lot of work to do yourself, and it would probably be cheaper to buy a new player than get the battery replaced by a service shop.
