Sounds like either dodgy spindle motor,or voltage problem as those motors are small and brushes dont last for ever

Sony CDP-C910 will no longer play cds or eject changer cartridge


Mine did the same thing. My player was primarily used in the garage and the cold weather may have caused my player to do the same thing. I just fixed my player. I removed the top cover and looked at the CD in the play position. In the upper right corner from the CD, you will see a spindle motor with a belt on it. Gently spin the motor back and forth carefully with your finger. I rotated it a half-spin in either direction, careful not to dislodge the belt. When I turned the player back on, the mechanism operated as it normally would and began playing the disc. I was able to eject and reinsert the magazine without any issues, solving the problem. Hopefully that will work for you.

CD not playing with bose wave system but same cd playing other audio player , On bose wave music system it is appearing CD is not reading . Please advise solution


The cd assembly is the issue, over a period of time the laser pickup becomes weaker until it can no longer read the disc, one possible solution is to buy a disc cleaning kit and follow instructions in an effort to recover the assembly. If that fails the only option is contact Bose for pricing since they are the only authorized service centre that work on their own products.

Find them on eBay. The restriction on consumer CD recorders was a concession to the recording industry to collect a small fee per each recordable 'music' disc and distribute it to the artists to compensate for the presumed (and likely) loss of revenue from home copying.

I have a sony CDP-CX235 200 disc CD player? If I want to create my own cd with music, any idea what type of disc and file formats I need to use?


First, I'd get a CD recorder. This machine is only a player.

Consumer CD Recorders will require CD-R Audio or CD-R Music blank media to record.

I recorded a music cd on my sony and when i went to finalize-the songs vanished..i've only had it for two years is this the end of the line?


First, let's find the missing music. Stick the CD into a DVD player and see if it can play it. They usually CAN play unfinalized CD's but only straight-through because there is no TOC.

If the recordings are there, try finalizing it again. If not, digitally dub the CD in real-time from the DVD player to another CD in the Sony and see what happens.

I'm betting it was a fluke.

Hi i have a sony car stereo that plays the radio only!


what is happening on the display is the laser reading the disc if its not reading the disc your cd player is faulty more than likely the laser is either dirty or had its day,make sure there is compatible music data on the disc,also check all the sound options on the stereo.

Intermitent audio


I had that happen before, one problem was my car had bad shocks or i hit a pothole in the road. The second time i had the volume up so loud the bass wass thumping the floor and it skips the CD. My question is, how lowd is the thign turned up? :P Some CD players load the data into a memory and then it plays from the memory till it needs more info. It maybe that the unit is not stable or the CD is not balanced right so it cant read the info at a consistant speed. The music maybe playing faster then it can read because of the vibrations. Is the disk clean? i know this may sound dumb but it is easy to over look. If the surface of the data side is so scratched up it may have problems reading the data quickly enough. Sometimes the coating can fall of the disk if you hold it in the light you can sometimes see spots threw the disk where the foil has been chipped off. The CD player could have a focus problem also, it could be damaged in shipping or have been dropped and it cant focus properly on the data. Do you have any other disks to try? a new one? one you never play?
