Tip & How-To about Sony CDP-CX300 CD Player

Sony CX355 skipping Fix

I have a Sony 300 disc changer that started randomly skipping tracks after it was 8 or 9 years old.
I tried cleaning it, no change.
I opened it up and found an adjustment screw on the reading lens carriage.
Note: It is very hard to see
It rotates approx 1 turn from stop to stop. It was centered from the factory.
I rotated it counterclockwise 1/2 turn, and it got worse.
I rotated it clockwise 1/2 turn, and it is fixed. It hasn't skipped a beat since.

skips when playing disc, may go from track one to track ten for no reason.


It sounds like you have the cd on random or shuffle. Look to see if you have a button marked rdm or shuf or some variation of that. If so, try pressing that button to see if random/shuffle turns off.

sony cdp cx 355 skips on first track


Could be some dust or debris in the unit. Also be careful that you are not putting fingermarks near the hole section of each CD you put in, as the CD plays from the centre out.
