Question about Sony CDX-R3000 CD Player

1 Answer

Functions do not work even after resetting.

When powered on, the display is there. Upon placing a CD into the drive it will play. I cannot change the volume. I cannot search, switch to FM/AM, I cannot do a thing with it except to power it down. I have removed the faceplate and pressed the reset button to no avail. I have seperated powere to it by disconnecting the wiring harness and reattaching and reseting. Nothing. Is there anything that I can do besides take it out and use it to break walnuts?

    i have exactly the same problem, i went a little further and opened it up and took it all apart, looked everywhere inside to see if there was something that didnt look right, didnt find anything. I talked to someone online at sony about it and they said to pay $125 to have it serviced, or $90, and use the exchange system. I think something inside it is short-circuiting, by-passing the face plate completely. I think I'm just gonna have to buy a whole new deck, thats a shame, because when this one worked, it worked good

Sony MHC-GS200 does not play CD's and emits a squealing sound when unit is powered on. Sound comes from CD compartment even when Radio is selected. Carousel will not rotate either.

The only way to find out will be to open it to view the CD area. Then power it up. And watch what happens.
It could be a foreign object in the mechanism.

I have problem with CD player.

The drive tries to read the CD but fails, then "resets" to try again. It is likely the complete unit will have to be replaced even though the other functions work.

Dvd plays initially and then stops

It could be the drivers for CD/DVD.
The best way to troubleshoot this is right click on computer, select manage. A new window will pop up, in that list select device manager.
Look in the list for CD/DVD drives and click on the + sign next to it, when the tree opens right click on the CD/DVD drive and select uninstall, then restart the PC.

This method will hard reset the system and force windows to load the default drivers for the CD/DVD upon restart. Hopefully this should resolve your problem.
If not please post back.

Good luck

DVDRW416 not working

I believe this drive is faulty as it should try and spin light up upon power-up even if it only has the power cable connected.
