Sharp XL-HP505 Not playing CDs

Recently came into possession of a like-new Sharp XL-HP505 stereo. The radio works just fine, but when I try to put a CD into any of the 5 cd trays, it gives me some TOC READ message, then says no disc.
I'm putting the CDs in the correct way and all, I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong...
I tried doing the CD calibration bit that I read on this site where I hold down Stop and X-Bass, but none of the other button presses did anything...

Hi try this.....

Put the system in standby (ie off but plugged in) then whilst pressing down the record button and the X-BASS/DEMO button, press the PRESET DOWN (i.e.left hand one) button until "CLEAR ALL" appears, then power on your system.

This gave me some functionality back i.e. i can play normal wave CD's but not mp3 ones....

Hope this helps

My sharp cd-ba200 will barley play cds


Put the player On for few hours or overnight. Now remove the panel and get access to the optical head unit, use a clean ear bud to polish the optical head. If not the optical head is weak and must be replaced.

How do you record onto a tape from a CD?


I couldn't find the exact manual but the XL-HP505 may be close enough...

Hi, do you know if you can adjust the bass on a Sharp xl-hp505 micro component system (other than the preset settings)? I find the bass too loud. Thank you so much.


The manual mentions a couple of things that could account for excess bass, one being the Extra Bass button (X-Bass indicated on front); the other being the ROCK setting, which boosts bass.

Placement of the speakers relative to the room surfaces and the listening position can affect their perceived bass response. Experiment. Corners and close wall reinforce the bass, moving the speakers out from them would lessen it.

My cd changer is not working any more. I think it needs fixing. How much roughly would I be looking at to pay for repairs?


There is no such thing as a fixed cost of repair for a non-specific problem. You need to ask a real live technician to look at it for that.

Sharp XL-HP505 CD players won't open.


Hi,
I don't know what the code is but have you pushed the reset button. If you do push it you will have to reprogram the unit. Otherwise it will have to go in for service
Hope this helps

"NO DISC" reading


Try this CD realignment process built into the Sharp XL HP505: Have unit off.
Hol down the square (stop) button and the X-BASS button while pressing the ON button. This starts the CD TEST. press play, the memory, then memory, memory, memory, adjustment lights will come on the screen. FOF, TOF, TBAL, TGAN, FGAN, RFLS. press cd1 - track 4, press cd2 - track 9, press cd3 - track 15. Press square (Stop).

If all the cd trays are full, then will light up . This worked for me.

Compra un disco limpiador de lentes laser y puede que esto solucione tu problema ya que puede ser solo suciedad en el lente.

CDs won't play


Maybe you should fix the cds or clean them or try to fix the disc reader in the radio.
