Check out connecting headphones to the unit and then check out the sound.if in the head phone the sound comes proper then it could be the settings or wiring problem.but in head phones also if u get the same problem.its the internal board problem for sure.and each component on the board has to be checked to locate the exact fault.and asfter that the faulty component should be replaced to make it proper.

This model is equipped with a variable analog output for fading. Make sure fading is turned off. Also check the digital output and headphone output to diagnose the problem. If the analog is always bad, but others ok you probably have a hardware failure.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Offhand, low volume level and distorted audio indicates probable fault at the amplifier stage and/or the power supply of a unit.

This of course would require opening the unit, a fair familiarity of electronic components/circuitry and safety procedures, use of a DVM and a soldering iron. It would be to your added advantage access to a service manual or at the very least a schematic diagram with voltage readings.Should you be uncomfortable performing a DIY (do-it-yourself), perhaps your best bet would then be to seek the services of a qualified professional.

Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa. Happy Holidays.

Hi,
It seems problem in output amplifier area in CDP-CX355 player.
If you have basic electronics knowledge, repair experience and god solder skills, then get service manual of same model from any on-line manual store and check output stage.

I have two multiple CD players. One is a 200 CD player (CDP CX205) and the other a 300 CD player (CDP CX355)I do not have the manuals for either. Where can I get them?


Hello Albert,

I went to google and typed in a search for both of your players and came up with the following:
CDP-CX205 got to www.dvdplayer-manual.com and you'get a PDF to download;
CDP-CX355 go to www.usermanualguide.com and type in your model number in the search, then, on the next screen scroll down and select your model number.

Peace Out

Don't run anything but a TURNTABLE through Phono. That's the only labeled input that's literal. Use any other Line Level input for the CD.

If you don't have anything connected to the Tape loop, use the Tape In connectors.

CDP CX355 Seems to Skip- sound similar to what happens with LP record when dirty.


If the player "skips" after 15+ seconds the likely problem is the split rack&pinion used to position the laser. The split rack is sprung to remove play or backlash when meshing with the driver cog. This split rack can jump cogs over time, eventually becoming ineffective. The solution is to remove the laser assembly and gently disengage the driver cog, compress the split rack and re-engage the driver cog. This should solve the skipping problem.

CDP-CX355 cd player


Hello,
You can have service manual of CDP-CX355 from Manual Zone and Service Manual net

Regarding test and checking of audio out circuit, service manual will help you a lot and let me know do you get distorted sound in digital out or analog out.
If its analog audio out, then IC401, 402 and IC302 on main board are suspected. (see below picture, part of main board)
Need further info / help, let me know to guide you further.
Thank you.
