Question about Sony Walkman D-FJ61 Personal CD Player

1 Answer

Sound only comes from left earphone (taking the cover off the headphone jack)

I recently was given a Sony D-FJ61 by a friend for free. I got lucky. It worked great, the quality is perfect, no skipping, I expected no less. Meanwhile, after a few days I began to have a problem where the sound only comes through the left earphone. Pushing the headphone jack at a certain angle appeared to fix the problem if I held it in place, so I figured one of the prongs inside the jack must have been bent. So I opened it up, and bent the prong back inward. Meanwhile, it doesn't appear to fix the problem. If I could get the black cover of the headphone jack inside the CD player off, I could better see and adjust the prongs so they touch the jack correctly. Does anyone happen to know how to do this, or know an easier way of fixing the problem?

Hello. The problem could be the jack itself, more exactly it has a bad contact with the main board. If you have a soldering equipment you should try to resolder the jack to the main board. Or you may try to go at a service center, to have the jack replaced just to be shure. It isn't an expensive repair and can be done in half hour at max. I don't recomand you to try to dissasemble the jack because it may get damaged even further. check the connections with the main board, it may even be a broken pin. Good luck, feel free to ask further questions and don't forget to rate any answer received from this site :)

What is my Wurlitzer 1015 CD black onyx in perfect condition worth?


There is no set value for these machines. It is simply worth what ever someone is willing to pay. However there are some guidelines. Coast values are always higher, this includes the east and west coast plus the great lakes also count as "coast" pricing. The walnut model is usually a few hundred dollars less than the Black onyx. Of course a dealer would provide service after the sale and usually give you some kind of warranty, you would also expect delivery to be an option. The Dealer would have a higher price tag due to all the extras.

The auction price would be less because you have to take it with you and there would be no warranty, and if it broke a few months, you would be "on your own" trying to find a repair person. This would be the lower price that you would expect to pay.

Here is an example of a walnut model that recently sold on eBay, described as being in mint condition.

Aftermarket headlights for '01 stratus R/T Coupe


I would try JC Whitney. They specialize in aftermarket parts for all vehicles and I can testify as to the quality of their parts--quality normally surpasses the quality of part you would buy at say Advance auto for example, while their JC's parts are less expensive. Never the less, the more you pay, the more you get generally, but JC Whitney also has great return policies and warranties, just be sure to read the disclaimer so you know exactly what to expect if you try to return purchased parts. I am an avid Jeep enthusiast and have purchased numerous performance and aftermarket parts and they have all met my expectations. I hope this helps. Also, JC Whitney has a huge online catalog that can be found at JC Whitney.com.

Input jack on my hp541 kicker headphone's sound comes and goes. I have tried multiple cables, If I wiggle the cable around it works in one speaker sometimes both.


Hi hotrodjayrod,

If the symptoms remain the same after trying another headset, this kind of fault is caused by bad solder joints in the earphone jack itself of your unit. This is due to frequent inserting and pulling the headset plug. To resolve the issue, the earphone jack must be re-soldered. You have to open the back cover of your player and using a pointed soldering iron, re-solder the joints.

Hope I helped you.
Have a nice day!
Thanks for using Fixya.

Left ear bud lost all sound- no cord damage-only 5 months old...is it worth getting fixed by professional or is there something I can do to fix it ? H


The cords are sealed into the earphone. You can take a multimeter and test the continutity of the either earpieces, once you are convinced that the left side is faulty, first of all use a small thin needle as the probe, use your multimeter in the continuity range, holding one end of the meter probe to the jack , inset the pin like an ijection into the wires to obtain the connection, it there is no connection out of the headphone jack, I think you can replace with a new one to be soldered. If not proceed to the earpiece to confirm, then open the sealed unit and be lucky if the earpiece is not damaged but only the wires. Good Day

Are you operating with the selector knob in the green "preset" mode or one of the custom modes? That camera can be set up ten ways from Sunday and it's quite possible that it's in a mode that is damaging quality.

Also, check rear element of lens and sensor for debris.It's got a removable lens and might be dirty. Be EXTREMELY careful cleaning the sensor, Seek guidance. Personally, I've never touch a sensor. A puff of air should do it. Don't touch it with anything. If it looks clean, leave it alone.
