Question about Sony CDP-CX220 200-Disc CD Changer

1 Answer

Cd's always skip

I have 2 Sony 200 disk changers, cdp-cx220 and cdp-cx255. I've had them both for 10 yrs. They now BOTH have the same problem at around the same time. ALL cd's skip after a couple of tracks into them. It skips so badly that it crazily goes to other tracks adjacent to what it's trying to play. I've used a cleaning cd with a small carbon fiber brush (maybe 1/2" long) located on track 2. I've also sprayed windex on the small brush, figuring it was my cigar smoke choking the lens. Changers are on different floors, weird how they both crapped out within a month or two of each other.

You have done well for 10 years laser changes are in order

When a cd skips it is due to laser diode becoming weak over time not producing an original beam causing focus prolbems ,hence skipping discs

Cd player skips, shoudl I be cleaning inside and how do I do that? Sony cdp-cx205

I would try a cd cleaner cd - they normally have tiny brushes on the CD itself, which when used brushes against the laser lens.

I have opened one up before, they do get dusty - so if you really want to give it a good clean I would open it (remove the 6 screws putting them somewhere safe) and use a can of compressed air to blow out any dust.

There is a fair amount of grease inside which may collect dust if blown about.

Good luck.

Music jumps and skips

The laser beam may be "seeing" through dust, try compressed air in a can. Buy at computer stores. Make sure all discs are clean, wipe only in straight lines from center outward....
