Sharp CD-C3800 won't turn on

A few years back, my stereo quit working. It won't power on at all. I'd like to try to fix it but not sure what the problem is. I haven't done anything with it at all, just trying to find the best place to start.

Re: Sharp CD-C3800 won't turn on

Sometimes you can smell a burnt electronic device and see if somthing is burn up inside. Its common that fuses can blow sometimes they are a bit under rated and can blow for no reason. Check the fuse first and try and replace it with the same one first. They usualy are near the power cord and you need a coin to open them. They are not a common fuse you need to get them from radio shack or an audio parts store.

Re: Sharp CD-C3800 won't turn on

Well now the first thing your gonna need is a vom. If you dont have one or dont know what that is then stop right here and take to a repair shop.. If you know how to use a vom the first thing you wanna do is measure the primary of the power xformer and check all the a/c fuses. Next make sure there are no mechanical switch to switch the ppower off from the power supply next try to measure the voltages comming fron the power supply and Im not sure whats supose to be where but a schematic should assist ya with the voltages. Good Luck

Where can I get an antenna for Sharp CO-C3800 stereo?

It depends on the plug of the antenna on the system, if it is a female RF plug, you can use a normal bunny ears antenna with a female to female adapter.

Good luck!

Sharp CD-BA2100 cd drawer won't turn or close.

Take the 4 screws out of the top, lift the CD drawer out, disconnect the two wire harnesses, take the top off, lift the 3 disc tray out, then force the drawer open and closed a few times until it slides freely. Put it back together and it may or may not work. Worked for me.

I have a cd xp120 sharp mini stereo andt it won`t read the disc,i bought and replaced the lens but it still says no disc.

To fix this properly the whole laser assembly needs to be purchased, because it comes pre-aligned which is critical when it comes to a set up.

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.

CD PLayer no longer recognising CD RW discs

Try cleaning the discs with straight swipes, with a dry cloth, like your shirt, starting from the center and swiping outward.

My XL-MP130 stereo makes a racket...

What your machine is doing is... whenever the unit is powered on or off the cd player resets itself and the clanking you hear is the cd changer resetting itself.  The plastic trays of the cd player are driven by plastic gears.  These gears are noisy when new, after a few years, they can make quite a clanking noise.  Most cd changers of this age have similar mechanisms and this type of noise is inherent in their operation.      I'm afraid the only solution is to replace the unit.  Opening the unit to lubricate the gears may cause more problems than it may solve, so I would not recommend it.

Stereo makes a grinding/buzzing sound when turned on

I am afraid you have a bad power supply capacitor inside this unit. if you do not know how to check the capacitors, you will need to take the unit into a repair shop. Depending on how expensive this unit is, will determine if it is at all worth repairing. Good Luck
