Cd will not spin - Sony MHC-5900 hifi

When inserting a cd the player will either not spin at all, or start
spining and stop after 2 seconds. Needless to say he does not
recognize the cd then.

The problem happened in the middle of playing a song. It then
slowed down (music became gibrish) and then stopped spinning.

Enejct and insert of the tray works fine, apart for the spining of
CD. Resetting the system (it's a 4 components-connected hi-fi,
at that time was quite expensive) does not help.

I have opened the cd housing and couldn't find any dirt. Not on
the lens nor anywhere in the mechanism. Reading some
advices here I have used door-lock oil spray on the white
gears connecting to the 2 motors and on the 2 motors themselves,
however not sure I oiled the right points. As far as I can see
under the tray there are 2 round motors. Probably one is
for spinning the cd other for the tray or the lens location, not
sure.

What surprised me was to find on the small rail (left) of the lens mechanism a white drop of what looked like a cosmetic
cream. I thought I have dropped it by chance, but it doesn't
make sense. Anyhow it was one place on the rtay quite a large
drop of white cream you would not expect inside electronics.
Maybe it has something to do with it.

SOURCE: Sony MHC-2800 setting the clock

Hi, it's simple. First press "Timer1" and Timer2" buttons together, clock on display will start blinking, by cursors "Up/Down" you can change the value of hours and minutes (switching between hours/minutes by "Left/Right" cursor). To save set time press "Memory". Enjoy your set clock :)

The repair manual can be purchased from Sony. What is the specific problem. Perhaps a manual is not needed.

SOURCE: not getting high depth of bass sony MHC-RV777d

I wouldn't expect huge bass from those little speakers. Somewhere on there, there's an equiliser, where you 'll probably be able to turn the bass up and down. See if that works. If not, new speakers may help.

CD player stopped working on Sony ICF-CD831 PSYC Clock Radio/CD P


I've been able to prolong the life on mine by doing this:

Insert the disc, then spin it by hand and quickly close the door and hit play.

It's always worth using a laser cleaner first, as it may just be dirty and stops spinning because it cannot read the disc.

How can I get the cd changer to stop changing non stop?


Something is out of timing. When powered up, the unit trys to get to a known state and will continue until it reaches that state. If the timing of the gears has been changed, this may not occur.

I'll try to see if I can create a set of instructions to re-time this.
