Sony CDP-CX450 Cd Player

Dear Sir,
I live in Thailand and have the Sony CDP-CX450 CD Player. During the past 12 months I have had to reinput the Disc labelling and the Artists name on at least 3 occasions. As per the manual instructions and it has become very frustrating to continually have to repeat the process.
The reason for this is that after starting the programme again, eventually the TV screen no longer displays the individual disc details, as it does when I input the information.
Strangely enough I still get the Discs and the tracks music through my stereo system as I have arranged them. That being the "Shuffle" method.
Where I live we have many power shortages or as they are called here power outages.
My question is naturally do these power outages affect the stored information?? I would have thought that the stored memory would last longer than a day,at least.
I am looking for some information that will solve this problem and would be grateful for anybodys assistance.
Regards,
Peter FREER

    Dear Sir,
    Thank you for the response but it really doesn't answer my query.
    I have this Cd Player hooked up to the power source via a USP device. I am looking for another solution to this problem, for example - if I record the details of name and artist on the remote control would this solve the problem of losing the information from the Player itself???
    Could there be another method?
    Thank You
    Peter FREER

I have a similar model that can remember the titles for a few weeks without power (the CDP CX355) so losing power shouldn't be a problem but maybe power surges are? Have you tried a surge protector?
Also there is a small chance that the 1 farad capacitor in the machine maybe faulty. It is easy to replace - it looks like a button battery and it is soldered to the underside of the top circuit board.

Recording the details of name and artist on the remote control is a good idea and should solve the problem of losing the information.also

The power retension capabilities of this unit are for short durations only. Internally, there is a capacitor in the farad range that will retain information for reasonable power outages in the minute to hour range only. Anything that lasts longer that that and you should seriously investigage a small UPS system with battery backup that could easily retain your settings for up to a week or more.

Power outage sometimes really erase some newly save data/information on a electronic device like this, that why when you have power outage some data will be lost, commonly the new changes on the data will not be save...

Hi,

As in most current devices, absence of power (as in shortages/outages) simulates a reset. The reset reverts the unit back to factory defaults which of course does not have user configurations and settings.

A workaround perhaps would be with the use of a UPS as those used in computer systems.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

I have a sony CDP-CX235 200 disc CD player? If I want to create my own cd with music, any idea what type of disc and file formats I need to use?


First, I'd get a CD recorder. This machine is only a player.

Consumer CD Recorders will require CD-R Audio or CD-R Music blank media to record.

Cds dont load and tracks will skip during song play


It is clear symptoms of bad optical laser or dirty optical lens.
Please put lens cleaning CD in player, play that CD to clean dust on optical lens surface. If that helps, fine or replace optical laser block in player.
I can provide you optical lens part number, please confirm is it Sony CDP-CX153 cd player or any other model.
Thanks.

Unit do not read the cd's


Do you have them in backwards? The label (I believe) should be facing the right side.

This is a player only that requires a receiver or pre-amp/amp combination to drive speakers. The output from this unit is what is called "line level" and can be connected to any CD/DVD/VCR or TAPE input on a receiver.
