Sony PMC-DR50 Shelf System - Thanks Dodoy - need more help installing new belts

Everything on the unit is opened and exposed. My problem is the old stretched belts came off the pulleys (excuse my incorrect termonology). Could you please walk me through the proper replacement of the belts? Thanks in advance Agape

Seems that the display is faulty and should be replaced as a whole assembly. You can check if the linking cord is faulty and if the power supply to the display is correct.

I cannot get the CD disc doors to open or close. There are no discs in there, as I remember. The radio and cassettes both are operable but I can play CDs. I love this unit, even though it is old,...

Sounds like you've got a problem with either the Drive Motor, Drive Controller or Drive Belt.

It could be an easy fix but it depends on the where the fault is.

Does it make any noise or effort to open the doors?

The CD tray on my Sony MHC-RX100AV system won't stay closed. after i power up the unit the door opens a few moments later. i'll try to close it, but it opens again. what's worse is after i turn the power...

hey dude, i have the exact problem. I took the black wraparound cover off and looked inside and turns out the problem is the belt used to open and close the door. if it is old and worn, chances are it doesn't have enough elasticity to help the rotating parts rotate to open and close the door the whole way.
If your door is open when you remove the cover, you'll see the belt and door-opening mechanism right in the middle of the unit when you look down into it.

the belt looks to be about 8" in circumference, and i have a rubber band holding things in place until i can get to the store and get a new one.
hopefully you figured this out without buying a new stereo

Cd tray wont close, cds wont play

Sounds like you probably have a stretched belt on the load motor. Unplug the unit and remove the case which will expose the load motor. Plug in and turn on and press tray in button. You should hear the motor run and if you can see the belt you should see it slipping. Some belts are easy to change, and some are next to impossible. If you have to disassemble anything be sure that you note the position of everything as the timing of the tray, door, laser and most items in the unit is very critical. Let me know if you need more help.


Thanks for using FixYa

CD tray doesn't open

if the unit actually tries to open but does not, it is not locked. a locked unit does not even try to open. it sound like a mechanical misalignment. take it back to get a new one, since it's only 2 days old.
