Question about Sony MHC-GX250 CD Shelf System
I have a sony MHC-GX250 that was skipping on songs, so i opened it to clean the laser heaad. When i put it back together, everything went well. I tried to play a cd, and it jsut keeps on reading it over and over, and makes scarthing or grinding noises. I opened the case again to see what was causing it, and it looks like there is a white plastic piece that attaches to a black part that holds the cd from above and spins with it. When it tries to spin up, that white and black piece start spinning wildly, and move the disc out of alignment. It seems i didn't put that little white piece and the black piece on correctly. if I was clear, this is all taking place about 2 inches above the laser(I.E. on the CD part of the system). We contacted sony, and they want more to repair it then what we paid. I need this CD player to be working by monday, tuesday at the latest. It is used for our school's choir practice. I have not had any other problems with it at all. If anyone wants a picture of it, I'll try and put one up on my site for everyone to see.
That white piece sounds like the magnet that goes above the black little disk that holds the cd in place by the magnet wanting to connect to the top of the cd holder and motor (the magnet presses the disk on the holder to prevent slipping )
need anymore help?

Squealing noises may indicate that the player is trying to synchronize with the disc but can't due to an obstruction on the lens or in the laser path inside the pickup or a defect in the pickup. This can also be caused by an intermittent signal problem due to a faulty ribbon cable.
clean the optics. This is the most common malfunction as far as i know in all disc players. It would involve taking the cover off and finding a way to expose the lense, and then cleaning it with a very gentle brush. some players have a cover for the lense that swings to the side during playing, this greatly reduces the chance of dust accumulating, but its still worth the try.Also check on the small shafting that guides the carriage of the laser pickup. Dirt, grome, dust and solidified lubricant can cause stoppage of the carriage and the laser eye then fails to read the next track.
These are the only possible home remedies if you still face the problem then you will have to get it repaired.

Is that happening playing specific cd or dvd ... or happen with all of them.
did you try cleaning the lens using the lens cleaner.
