Re: System turns off!

The flashing standby light indicates the system detects a fault. When the ?/1 (?/1 is the symbol for the standby button lamp) indicator flashes Immediately unplug the mains lead and check the following items. ? If your system has a voltage selector, is the voltage selector set to the correct voltage? Check the voltage for your region, then make sure the voltage selector is set correctly. ? Are the + and ? speaker cords short circuited? ? Are you using the supplied speakers? ? Is anything blocking the ventilation holes on the rear of the system? (The thermal cut out may be operating but more likely after a longer period of use) Check all the above items and fix any problems found. After ?/1 indicator stops flashing, reconnect the mains lead and turn on the system. I f the indicator still flashes, or if the cause of the problem cannot be found even after checking all the above items, consult your nearest Sony dealer.

Stuck in standby

You can reset all to factory settings, which may help; unplug power, put back in switch on with power button. Then press together "tape", "CD" and the power button. You may need to reset the clock before it will work. If you need the manual, here is the link; check page 26 for the reset if not clear - nothing else in there that seems to be related, but you may find something i missed. Hope this helps :)

Check the back for speaker wire shorts, next! there may be a short in the audio output chip or surrounding parts in the stereo, this is more suited for a technician to sort out.

Micro hi fi component system sony cmt-ne5 / ne3 I

Check its sled motor. It is the motor that helps to spin the disc inside. If disc do not spin inside, check the voltage at the terminals of this motor. If it is alright, and comes near to 5VDC, the sled motor is damaged and have to be replaced. OK.

WIthout knowing the specific model, I can't be 100% sure, but a number of models in that vintage had a problem with cracked ribbin cables that go to the drawer unit. Replacing the cable usually fixed the problem. What is the specific model number?

Cd doors don't open and Errors 1 and 4

I had the same problem with my CMT-EP707. I read on this site to try various combinations of turning power off then turning the power back on while holding down either or both of the stop play button and the eject button for the affected CD tray. What seemed to work for me was turning on the power while holding down the eject button for CD tray 2, even though the error referred to CD tray 1.
