Mine had the same fault. The CD is being rejected as it could not load up - this is probably because of the CD loading mechanism.

You'll need to unplug and remove the case - 4 screws on the sides and 4 or 5 on the back. Once this is done plug back in (be careful not to touch any live parts inside), load a CD and watch. What you'll probably see is that when the drawer closes the mechanism under the drawer doesn't lift sufficiently. Give it small push when it tries and I bet it then will and the CD will play.

What you need to do to fix this is remove the front panel/PCB and also remove the plastic cover that is screwed above the CD drawer so that you can see more of the topside of the mechanism.

Remove the front panel/PCB by releasing the 2 screws on the bottom and then easing forward. Gentle - as there are pins connecting the front PCB to the side PCB. You should then be able to see a worm drive type arrangement that lifts the lower assembly. This will need regreasing (I used vaseline) with a small stick (I used a Q-tip with the bud cut off). You will probably see where the old grease has been pushed out. Once you've done this, reassemble and operate a good few times to work the grease in.

Done! Mine works fine now after sitting there performing the annoying trick you described for many months!

I have got a Sony CMT-EX100 Micro System. When I touch the OPEN/CLOSE-button on the top, the system doesn't open. I opened the system and it seems that the magnetic disc-holder holds the disc-tray too...


This problem is easily repaired! The belt that drives the mechanism is worn out (relaxed) and slides on the motor pulley. Just open the device (from the bottom and then drag the body up by removing the edges). You have to put a new belt section ø 35 mm 1 mm and the unit will work again.

I have problem with my sony cmt-cp1 model. NO DISC


If this problem occurs only at this cd/dvd it's a disk problem. If it occurs on various disks try using a cd/dvd cleaner set, a wet one is better. Follow the instructions on the set. The main idea is to put one drip of the included liquid at the set (usually isopropyl alchohol) at a specific place (like small brush) on the disk surface and play this disk. This way the "brush" will clean up the laser lens and after that the cd/dvd player will be able to read the disks. BE CAREFULL not to put too much liquid on the "brush". In case this don't solve your problem, the cd player needs laser lens replacement by a technician.

In case of a problem or clarification, don't hesitate to post me a reply.
If you are satisfied, rate my solution with the "thumbs" or add a testimonial.

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!

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.

the drawer is not seating all the way with the disc, open to make sure nothing is blocking the disc when it slides in.

My Sony CMT-HPX9 has no sound


If it's not the mute, try replacing the output fuse. Did you hear a POP last time it was operating? Good luck
