Question about Sony MHC-GX470 Shelf System

1 Answer

I have a Sony MHC GX470. It has been working great since I've had and the sound quality is awesome but since 2 days ago the cd player keeps skipping and it'll restart the song and skip again or it freezes. What can i do to fix this problem? I already cleaned the lens and i always wipe down the cd's. I just cant figure it out.

I think grooves are dirty / clogged in sled section of lens mechanism. There is flexible wire between lens and circuit board and this should also be checked as it can be cracked or misaligned.
Below is exploded view of lens in MHC-GX470 and marked area to be checked or cleaned.

I have a sony HCD-gx470 stereo an it will not go to the next song by itself how can i fix this


hi, if you are reffering to the cd player section, then check the program or repeat feature. make sure that none of these features are enabled. if this does not help then activate the "master reset" procedure in your user manual. lastly check beneath your unit for any transport locks/screws applied to the cd mechanism. cheers.

I have a Sony MHC-GX470 stereo...it will not play cd's...when you load a cd in it comes up with "mecha error"...the cd changer will not move between cd 1, cd2 and cd3 either.


the mechanism is bad or in human terms the motor that excepts and moves the disc has gone out i reccomend taking it to a repair shop to get a estimate because it may jus be cheaper to replace it.

well it depends on how you feel about opening your system. have you tried a cleaning cd? if not, then do that. If not, and u want to open it, then get some electronic cleaner spray (not sure how its called) and blow the laser clean. There are some resistors you can adjust, but thats getting very trick.

good luck
