Sony 400 Disc Changer Skips on CD's

I have a Sony Disc Changer that skip on some CD's. All CD's are clean, and I went to an authorized Sony Dealer in San Diego, and they said it was fine. It still skip on some CD's. Do know of a good Sony Repair Facility in San Diego? The unit is two years old, and I bought it from a friend who used it a lot.

Even if the CD's are clean, they can still be scratched. A scratch can not be cleaned and it can cause the CD player to skip. If this is the case, it is not the fault of the CD player. If the CD's are not scratched and still skip, then you do have a problem with the CD player. Most times it is the laser pick-up, but it can also be the spindle motor or even the DSP IC.

Is the skipping always on the same CD's? Do you have some CD's that never skip and others that always skip? If so then you have a few CD's that are just too scratched up to play properly. This happens sometimes and cleaning them will not help. Since this player is not under warranty, you can take it to any local repair shop for service. It does not need to go to a Sony repair shop. In fact, all Sony products of this type that are under warranty end up going to Mexico for repair. Sony no longer has any factory service centers in the US. They have places you can send your unit in the US, but they end up sending it to Mexico. Find a local repair shop and take it to them if you can determain that the player skips even when using a CD that has no scratches. Most minor scratches can be played thru by most CD players, but if a scratch is deep enough, it will skip.

Skips with g protection on


There's only so much ability to cache the data to make up for data loss through movement or vibration. Does it skip while completely motionless?

My walkman skips and stutters constantly. Its getting worse. The same cd is fine in the car player.


It could be that the lens needs cleaning. Try a CD Lens Cleaner like this. They can be found at most major grocery stores and supermarkets.

CD ''SKIPS'' on one player while it plays fine on another. Why does it SKIP?


Simply put it's the quality of the players. This could even be that one has a bit of dust on the read head or laser and the other is clean. Try some canned air (available at most office supply stores) to blow out any dust and debris. As for the cd, most people believe a cd must be nice and shiny or it will not work. This is incorrect. Most devices used to buff out scratches on cd's will leave a dull finish. Try some plastic polishing paste. Polish in a straight line from the center to the outer edge, working your way around.
Hope this helps.

10 year old stereo system CD changer won't play discs


Dust may not be the entire cause, but without knowing the make and model, anything I list would be pure speculation. Please post the make and model. That should give me enough info to list the probable problems and their solutions.

Thanks,
Dan

I have a nextplay cd boombox which is brand new and skips


The vibrations from the speakers are causing the cabinet to resonate. This resonation causes the lens to vibrate, distorting the pickup signal... I would recommend giving it a few hard slaps when it skips. if that does not work, then try to adjust the soud so that there is no bass at all if you can.... Else chuck it...

The laser lens could be dirty. A cleaner disc with brushes does the trick.
Or the laser could be off track

CD Player Acting Up


some cd players have a feature that is called intro. it plays typically the first 4 to 10 seconds of a song & goes to the next track. it does this to every song on the cd. see if intro is on your display or if it's turned on in the menu. i hope it works. good luck.
