Question about Sony CFD-S300 Radio/Cassette/CD Boombox

1 Answer

Sony CFD-S300 boombox would not run CDs

When I put a CD into the player, it sounds like it is spinning the CD but then it gives up for some reason and never plays it. The platter on the top is "Really" loose. I read in one of the solution if it is too close, the laser cannot focus. May be thats what going on in here !! How do I fix the platter?

Can I buy just the power cord for my cd player Sony CFD- S200?

Can't see why not.If its like a kettle lead and unplugs from the back just replace it with one that has the same amp fuse in it.They can be picked up very cheaply.Maybe its just the fuse gone on the original?if so just replace it very cheaply.

The CD spins, but will not play. It does not seem

Your laser head has probably gotten weak, or the spindle motor is worn. You can probably replace either yourself if you're VERY mechanically inclined, otherwise I would leave that up to a shop.
Good luck.
