    i have the same prblem, although mine is a solid red light with no display. it will not turn on, when i plug it into the wall i hear a single click sound. i have had the system for about 4 years. problem has been on and off for the last two years. now it seems permanent - it used to turn on by itself but now seems to not.

Something is out of timing. When powered up, the unit trys to get to a known state and will continue until it reaches that state. If the timing of the gears has been changed, this may not occur.

I'll try to see if I can create a set of instructions to re-time this.

SOURCE: How do I connect ipod to sony MHC GX450

you can buy a Belkin docking station for about $20  or you can buy a headphone to RCA plug connection wire.  I like the docking station as it has a remote and charges the ipod as well.  Shop ebay

First unplug the unit and press the power button to make sure all the power is out of the unit. Try to take a cotton qtip and clean the lazer lense with alcohol. after wipe it clean with a new cotton qtip to remove the film the alcohol produces. Do not use a lot of alcohol and drip it all inside of the unit though.
Also if you tried a cd-r try a real copy instead. Make sure your cd's are ok.
Good luck.

SOURCE: why do my sony mhc-gx450 cd shelf system power

This usually indicates faulty wiring, or miswiring. Disconnect the wires, one set and turn the unit off and on to see if that elimates your problem. If it does, the wiring or component is at fault. If you disconnect everything and have the same problem, it's an internal fault with the unit and will have to be troubleshot. Get and estimate first, to evaluate whether or not it's economical to keep, or replace with a new one. Good luck, hope this helps.

Sony Mini Hi-Fi Component System (MHC-RG660)


I understand the problem. It should be the relay which is not responding, technically not able to connect the system power supply, you will have to replace the relay. The STK chip should be working fine.
