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 :)

Just bought a used Walkman D-EJ621 on e-Bay and have found that the volume will not advance upwards past 3. Sound quality is excellent, no hiss or buzz, etc. Am using Bose earphones and fresh batteries....

Thanks for update, yes, AVLS limits the volume control to minimum level and it wont advance, turning off AVLS will give you control to change volume level.

I bought my husband some wireless headphones. The

All you have is to connect the 3 wires from the cable that is for going to the phones jack, at the pins 1,3,4 of the scart a/v of the tv. Mention that the shield of the cable (the one is going at the big outer metal of the phones plug) must connect at the pin 4.Here is a pinout of the a/v pins
I suppose that a euro a/v (or scart a/v) to RCA or mini jack adaptor is posible to be found at your market so you don't have to make one by yourself.

In case of a problem or clarification, don't hesitate to post.

Thanks and regards

The output jack is a headphone jack that is 1/8" diameter with the following pinout: tip = left channel, ring (next contact) is the right channel, sleeve (third larger contact area is the common/return for the left and right audio.

Audio output from my TV

take a red and white audio rca cable and cut off one end of the jacks. on the end you cut, solder a headphone output plug on. can also solder on the lines of a pair of headphones (where you've cut off the 1/8 in jack) directly to the rcv jacks.

Hold down the Display/Menu function button (one of those three buttons on the left of the unit) for about 3-4 seconds until the display reads "t set". When this appears, push the track forward button once (>>|) so the display reads "beep"; now press the play pause button (>||) once. The display will now say "on", push the track forward button (>>|) once to make it read "off"; now push the stop play button. You're done. Enjoy the silence.

Sound problems on my D-NE720

!st, try a different pair of headphones. If the problem persists, the jack is breaking from the PCB and will need to be resoldered.
