Question about Sony CDP-CX151 100-Disc CD Changer
I was in Europe and used a converter to play my cd changer. It now no longer works and I wanted to get all my cd's out. I was able to get most of them out but I cannot turn the changer to get the rest out which are located where the machine mechanically pulls them out to play them. I cannot located my orginial manuals. Any suggestions?

I got a free one of these from my work...well that is because it was having the same problem and they didn't want to mess with it haha. Sooo...I brought it home..thinking i could just buy a cd cleaner kit and clean the dirty lens..which is what normally causes these problems. To my dismay this didn't work (later found that the lens is a good half inch away from the disc)..so i decided to open the bad boy up (hey I got it for free...no harm crackin it open :-) ) After hitting the lens with a can of air..I tried again...no go. And just so you all know...this player runs vertically..not horizontally. I want to know how does the player read? the lens in stationary. All other players i have seen the lens moves up and down. I'm thinking it might have something to do with that. I gave up on cleaning it and started doing some searches..this was the only forum that was somewhat helpful. I agree with Silverscreen. When i watch the cd's playing the disc wobbles SLIGHTLY up and down. I think the rear stand-alone wheel is a bit too loose. ..The amount it wobbles is hardly noticed but is the only thing i see out of the ordinary.

I reckon that they are not being put back correctly by the loading mechanism! This is a common problem with these units. It is highly unlikely that they are actually falling off the carousel.
Open the unit, and watch it as it loads and replaces the cd's from the carousel. You will probably find that instead of grabbing the disc off of the spindle and putting it back, it might be grabbing before the cd is even in its grip. This then simply bumps the cd out of the way, and it will fall inside of the unit.
The good news is that it can be fixed with a bit of very gentle bending and persuading. But be very carefull when doing this!

Pretty much the only thing you can try at home is cleaning the laser lens, if the cleaner works then remember to use it now and again.
If the CD lens cleaner does not work the take it to the nearest sony tech/dealer for repair. Multi CD systems are very complicated and need specialist attention.
Hope this helps
Thanks for using FixYa

It does not read MP3's in any format. Media abilities do not imply file abilities.
