You may have to disassemble your Sony system to get access to the CD drive in order to remove the jammed CD. You have to be careful to avoid destroying the drive in order to retrieve the CD.

It's minimal, don't worry about it. If the 1/2 watt of current it draws bothers you, unplug it from the wall.

Sounds like you have a short in the unit. You will have to take it apart and check the power supply for bad semis. My best guess is that your problem lies in the power supply. Let me know how this works out.

It could be the battery or it could be a bad cable. Do you have access to another cable to see if that works?

Alternatively, if it is the battery, you may want to do a google search with your model number and the word battery in the search bar to find a replacement.

This has happened to me many times. After a player sits for a while, the lens that reads the discs can get a film/patina on it, especially if there has been cigarette smoke around it.

Try this:

Take a q-tip with rubbing alcohol on it (almost none, like dip it and squeeze most out with your fingers). Then, very GENTLY, with almost NO pressure, wipe the lens with a circular motion for a few seconds. Then, flip the q-tip over and dry the lens with a circular motion for a few seconds. Then, quickly blow on the lens to dry it and remove any remaining q-tip fibers/debris (don't spit, lol).

This has worked for me many times. If you can't access the lens from/through the disc door, you'll have to open the unit, in which case you could also blow out all of the dirt/dust with a spray can of air or small air compressor first.

Also, if the player is an older player, and some of the discs are not store bought (like ones that you burned yourself), some might not play because your burn technology was/is more advanced than your player.

Good luck.
