Question about Sony MHC-G101 Shelf System

Open Question

Ijust asked a problem with the cd changer not playing

I did receive an email in my spam folder but when I clicked on This Is Not Spam, I lost it. I shows I have the email in my New Mail folder but only 3 actual emails show and none are about this. Could you please send the email again and I will read it before trying to put it with my new mail.

    I have a Sony MHC-G101 stereo and the cd player won't work. The changer seems to be properly aligned and appears to work fine. However, when you try to play a cd the digital read out for the song length displays as 0:00 and nothing else happens.It also wants to list the track number as 0. I would suspect the lens but would that also cause the track number to zero out? Even if you change the track the display returns to zero.

    Thanks in advance for your help!

SOURCE: When I place my cd

Sounds to me like the lens is dirty. There are only a couple things that will cause this. First make sure the CD you are using is not a home burnt one. Some CD's get burned with a format that the CD player will not accept. Next thing you want to do is make sure the CD you are using is not scratched real bad. The laser cannot read read scratched CD's. You can get disks of all natures resurfaced for a couple dollars from your neighborhood video or gamers store. Next thing you want to do is gently clean the CD slide real well with a dry cloth and then get a CD cleaning disk and run it in your CD player two complete times. A dirty lens will not read a CD and a real dirty lens may need more than one cleaning. Sometimes the lens comes out of alignment and will not read anything anymore. Just a mm out of alignment can cause the lens to fail to read. This has to be addressed by a tech, should this be the issue.

I have a Phillips MC/50. The CD changer keeps changing and won't play, just keeps flipping. If you use the tuner, you still hear the clicks of the CD changer. You have to unplug it.

There is a switch inside the changer that will not release. Most likely the plastic stop it rides on has broken off . This is common when the changer keeps shuffling the disc all the time

The cd door is stuck as if a cd is out of place. Won't open enough to see the problem.

Before, when trying to see the problem, I clicked "skip" to see if it would go through all the discs. It did, but still wouldn't open the door. Later, I clicked "play" each time, then "skip", and after going through all 5 discs, the door opened. Go figure.

You wont be able to play any new format CDs on an old Fisher or any other older make . It 's the internal decoder logic that's needed. And older players dont have it.
As far as top-loaders..Do a websearch . I dont know of any.
