Question about Sony MHC-GX450 CD Shelf System
When we place CDs in and close it you can hear it running. The display says "reading" for a long time and then we get "no disc" and the changer continues to spin and read each CD space. Is the problem the eye not being able to read? The CDs we are using are the same that ran in the stereo previously. If the problem is the eye is this expensive and can it be replaced by us and if so where would we get the part? The system is 1 1/2 years old and was a Christmas present for my 16 year old son and I feel terrible that it is not working properly. I greatly appreciate any and all help! Thank you!!
Sounds like a dirty lens or laser failure.
Seek professional help.
The lasers are not as expensive as they used to be, get an estimate.

I found that if I never buy another product from RCA or Thompson, I don't have a problem. It never worked right out of the box,(it was a present so had no where to return it to), but iot made a terrific target at 50 yards for my rifle.

I got mine to work. Not exactly sure what I did but I think this is how it went:
I think I inserted 3 CDs. I went to tape mode (or game mode) and waited for a while. I heard the disc tray making a noise without me doing anything. Then I pressed disk skip while still in the other mode (tape or game). The stereo spun the disc after skipping to the next disc. I waited again until the disc stopped spinning. Then I went to disc mode. I think I let it read the disc by itself and it showed the tracks and the time on the LCD display. I pressed play and it played!
I hope this helps everyone.

Yes, i have this same problem, and yes, if you place only one cd in the tray it has the same problem. do you think it is dust that makes the eye not able to read or something?
