    That was it. I saw an antenna hooked up on the back already but did not realize there were 2 antennas. 2nd antenna had fallen behind the shelf and was not visible. Thanks! I got my AM can you get the baseball season to start sooner? :)

Why does My unit not getting power when plugged in?

Does it have a reset button or a fuse? check as some units have one or the other. Also check power cord to see if it is not apart as well check the plug itself. Could be the unit itself not working.

Sony MHC-GX250 RCA jack panel

Unless the jacks have physically broken, replacing them is not the solution to the problem. Generally if both channels are dead, then you will find that a pre-amp IC has failed. This can be found by simply following where the jacks enter the PC board then following the circuit till they go into an IC.

My sony MHC-GX250 says relay is it possible that it is causing my system to keep skipping tracks and randomly jumping ??

Mine says that all the time and it doesn't skip like that.. try using some air duster in the back and cd tray.. mine actually quit playing cds at one point.. my friend said it was the "dust cover" or something like that by the eye..

This should be because you have not used the player for many years. Does the system eject the CD tray? Use the CD head cleaner CD that removes dust on the laser head if any. Try using the audio CD which are recorded in .cda format and not ion MP3 format.
