Question about Sony CMT-RB5 Shelf System

1 Answer

CMT-RB5 - No Sound

When all is working well with my stereo I turn it on. There is one click when the display comes on, and a second click when the sound comes on. The problem is that sometimes when I am listening to music that second click, for the sound, unclicks and I lose the sound. If i turn off the stereo and let it sit for anywhere from 10minutes to an hour it usually will come back when I turn it on again. Recently this second click has not been coming at all rendering my stereo absolutely useless. Is this perhaps a bad or broken circuit or broken fuse? I am at a loss.

How to aux to optical connection ?

I am taking you literally, that is, you need RCA Aux ---> Optical (eg TOSlink) conversion. You can get converters, which are $50 or so as the format of the signal is quite different each side

My sony cmt-nex3 has the standby light flashing, but when i press the on butto, it doesn't turn on

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.

Help - CD won't eject! I press 'Open' on my sony CMT-EX1 system and the CD moves backwards as though it's going to eject but then it stays there, unreachable. Then the display begins to switch between...

I have the same problem and it's due to dirt!
I'm going to try using compressed air, but -
this definitely works:

:) Seriously:

tilt the cd player to a 45 degree angle (flat, basically - as if they tray were horizontal.)

I had my player for 10 or 12 years, and this problem is only coming up now. My house gets very dusty.

Also - vertical load disc players are hard to clean. X_X (inside the disc tray)

I love this stereo too!
I don't want to have to go out and buy another stereo!

Speakers crackle, then sporadically stop

Sounds like an amplifer fault. Many of these Midi system use a large black IC attached to a metal heatsink. They control both the power amp and pre amp on both channels. When they go wrong they can cause all sorts of effects,
If you can repair things I would look at that. If not get ready for a large bill. If it's the IC some are expensive, it does most of the work!
