Use common sense in removing them- You may have to open the unit up to see where they are. I can not see where they are located in your unit but usually opening the unit up will allow you to extract the discs without damage from the extraneous regions.

    Thanks. I removed the cover--six screws--and retrieved them. Was concerned that taking the cover off the unit might disconnect something.

    No , the only thing you need to be careful of is staying away from the AC mains if the unit is still plugged in. Other than that there are not things that are booby trapped like some cable boxes.

Hi There are many things that can cause your problem, I can tell you the most likely ones, but I recommend you don't take the unit apart, as the mech. in a 300 disk changer is complicated & delicate, and you may just cost yourself alot more money than getting it repaired. The symptoms you sescribe can be caused by failing laser pickup, dirty laser lense (especially if you've done home renvations with drywall), split drive gear that moves the laser on the sled rails, or even a hair or piece of dirt in the gear teeth of that same gear. The unit will play fine, until it hits the tooth where the debris are, then it skips, or jumps back a bit and starts again until it hits the same spot. Also..badly scratched or finger printed disks will cause that, but that is the first thing most people check. I wish it was something you could repair yourself, but my best advise is to take it to a reputable repair shop, and hope it is not a bad laser, as that is a fairly expensive repair. Hope this helps, Good Luck!

SOURCE: Sony CDP CX 235 200 cd changer-cd's dropping off

Hi there.

I reckon that they are not being put back correctly by the loading mechanism! This is a common problem with these units. It is highly unlikely that they are actually falling off the carousel.

Open the unit, and watch it as it loads and replaces the cd's from the carousel. You will probably find that instead of grabbing the disc off of the spindle and putting it back, it might be grabbing before the cd is even in its grip. This then simply bumps the cd out of the way, and it will fall inside of the unit.

The good news is that it can be fixed with a bit of very gentle bending and persuading. But be very carefull when doing this!

Good Luck!

SOURCE: Our Sony 400 disc changer won't open. I can hear

If ure an expert, then open up the set, check for alignment balancing for the gears and see if the belting has worn out. Pioneer till today uses belt for ejecting. Belt usually the issue.

Sony 5 cd changer disc exchange system With usb port


All this digital stuff can be more confusing for the user than standard tape systems. You may need to put files on the flash drive that are compatible with the CD changer for the files to be imported. Check the internet about this problem with the model unit you have and I bet you are not the only one having this problem. The flash drive may need to be having cda file son it or maybe something else.

Error-99 shows on screen then turn system off


Error 99 is CD not up to speed. Either the CD is slipping, Defective CD, pickup is unable to read sectors and is either dirty pickup or pickup going bad.

Is it always the same CD you are playing? Is the CD smudged with finger prints or dirty? If not suspect the CD itself. This will require Repair or Replace, as E-99 is a classic malfunction & unit will need to be taken apart, "unless" there is a CD stuck in the Unit.

If you have loaded a Blank Cartridge & clicked Eject & found no extra CD, then you will need to have a Reputable Shop Repair Typically this is the Logic I.C. & / or the Servo Motor. Sometimes you can find the same Unit on E-Bay, Craigs List, etc for less than Repair

Changer Error Codes:
E-00: Poor Cable connection.
E-01: Magazine not properly set in changer.
E-02: No Disc in magazine.
E-03: CD does not have selected track number.
E-04: Disc is dirty, upside down or unreadable.
E-10: No data is recorded on the MD. The player plays the next disc automatically.
E-99: Changer malfunction, disc may be caught in machine or changer requires service.

Hope this helps. Your feedback is important and I'll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using Fixya, and have a nice day.

My Sony CD changer (CDX-454RF) won't play the first three slots, and I get error messages on other CD's and plays them when "it" wants to I guess


The changer has a mechanical slide system inside it. It may be binding up around those positions. You may want to take the cover off and reposition some of the excess grease into those slide tracks and try it again. Or you could just be happy with a functioning 7 CD changer.
