Question about Sony D-EJ001 Personal CD Player

Open Question

"No Disc" and grinding noise.

I just baught this new in the box, it's less than a week old. It was working fine a few hours ago, but now when I press play, it makes a grinding type noise, then reads "no disc." I have tried using different discs, new batteries, taking out battteries for a few minutes to let it reset (not even sure if that is necessary)and still no change. I then took out the screws and opened the case up, nothing seems to be loose or out of place. Any ideas?

Yes, its toast. Sled mechanism seems broken and complete optical lens will be replaced that would cost more than D-EJ011 worth.

It may have a little switch so you can choose to either use it with a battery or with the power supply. If not try taking out the battery and see if it works. If it does not work with the battery taken of then it is the power supply. You can further check if the power supply is putting out voltage with a multimeter if you have one. Note that it might read a a few volts higher than 6 volts which is normal. If it reads less than six volts then it is no good.

I have a Sony Psyc CD Walkman D-Ej010 and I will have a cd in there at it will play for a few minutes and then stop and say no-disc. What could be the problem?

There may be a couple of reasons why a NO DISC , DISC ERROR or INSERT DISC error may appear in the display of your CD player. Try doing the following steps to troubleshoot why the error is displayed:
  • For disc players with a HOLD switch, make sure to move the switch to the OFF position.
  • Verify that the disc being used is supported by the CD player. NOTE: CD players do not support VCD or DVD discs. In addition, some CD players do not support CD-R or CD-RW discs that are created by a CD burner. For information regarding disc compatibility with your player, refer to the operating instructions supplied with the product
  • Ensure a disc has been inserted into the player. Make sure that the disc is inserted correctly, with the playback side of the disc facing down on the disc tray.
  • If the disc still does not play, attempt to play a different, commercially-produced disc.
  • NOTE: If more than one of the commercially-produced discs do not play, verify whether the discs are extended-length discs. Some players are not able to play discs where the recording exceeds the standard 74 minutes. If the recording of the disc is longer than 74 minutes, it is possible that some of the specifications of that disc were compromised and therefore, the CD player will not recognize that disc.
  • If the disc is dirty with fingerprints or smudges, or if the disc is scratched or broken, the CD player may not recognize the disc.Clean the disc using a soft, dry cloth.
  • Properly reinsert the disc into the player.
  • Attempt to play the disc again.
  • Only press the PLAY button once. If the PLAY button is pressed more than once, the disc may stop playing.
  • If the disc is still not recognized, remove the disc and leave the CD player powered on for approximately one hour to resolve the possibility of moisture condensation inside the player.
  • Please use a Lens Cleaning disc and check if that helps.

Thanks for understanding. Please let me know if you require any clarifications.

Jack is broken on portable CD player

Mystical Chicken, all that needs to be done is to open up your player and re-flow the solder connection where the ac adapter goes. It is a fairly simple task, given you have used a soldering iron before. If not, just send it to me and I'll fix it.

I assume you've tried batteries, cleaned the laser, etc. If so, then the laser might be knackered!
