Question about Sony CFD-E95 Radio/Cassette/CD Boombox
This unit has a red power light on it. When the radio or tape player is used the light is bright red and steady. When using CDs however, the light is dim and flickers as if there is a power drain. The CDs start to play fine but 15-20 seconds into it, it sounds as if the CD is skipping, but in actuality I think the unit shuts down and then restarts (at the same place). This is my daughters third player in 3 years and I went with a Sony due to the name. Please help! Many thanks.
I have a cdf-e75 that had a similar problem, although the red power light was dim for all functions. (the radio, tape and cd)
After opening up the unit and inspecting, I found one of the pins on the printed circuit board for the power had broken away from the solder. (it is a tiny board where the AC connector is soldered to) Seems in my unit there is nothing securing the molded AC connecter to the plastic case except the the printed circuit board it is soldered to-It is a poor design; perhaps your is the same? I suspect over time pushing the AC cord into the back of the player may have broke the connection? Anyway, I soldered the connection and I have never had any additional problems as the unit has worked fine since.
Don't know if this helps, but my suggestion would be to open the unit and inspect the pin connections on the AC printed circuit board to see if any have a loose/broken connection. ( Mine was not noticible with the naked eye as I had to use a magnifying lens and a bright light. Hope this might help.
