I have the Sony S2 Sports ZS X1 and it will not turn on.

Before confirm transformer fault, load batteries and see whether it works. After loading batteries, pull out its AC cord from its AC socket at it back side. With AC cord connected at the back of the set, battery supply won't connected to the set. There is a cut - off switch at the AC socket. Only after removing the AC cord, the set will work on battery.
Try this. If it works with battery, make sure that transformer or internal mains fuse has blown out.

Sony boom box

There are a couple of things that come to mind, poor solder connections on the main board, or the audio output ic has a thermal related issue causing it to break down under load, a tricky problem to prove.

Will not operate under battery power. Only operates with AC power adapter.

the problem could be from rust of the connector of the battery, open the battery case of the appliances and clean the connectors with a cloth soaked with methylated spirit, if this do not work, try opening the back cover of the appliances to check if the wire connecting the connector to the printed circuit board of the appliances is intact.
Also check for dry soldering, if found resolder.

Battery Operation

Try removing the AC cord from the back of the boom box, it activates a switch that lock out the batteries. On mine it sets in there pretty snug and required a little tugging.

Cd player on boom box

Hi I don't have a boom box, but i do know a little bit about CD players, and i think first the CD you are putting into the player as to be a proper bought CD, you know official CD, if you have done that, and still have the same problem, then its because the laser light is faulty, which basically means the CD player needs replacing.

You need a power cord with AC 120V, 60Hz 20 Watts. You may be able to get this from your local Radio Shack.
