Question about Sony CDP XE270 CD Player

1 Answer

Cdp-xe270 no RCA jacks

I aquired this unit from a business and the RCA/phono jacks have been removed, some kind of modification I guess, meaning I cannot connect to my system. Where can I get the part/s?
Thanks, Tony

    welcomejeeThis is new to me so I hope I am 'pressing' the right buttons to get back to you!
    I just removed the top and inside it looks as though the circuit board is there, just two hole in the outer case where the RCA's should be and they are taped over. The digital=out optical connection is intact and connected to the circuit board as bets as I can tell.
    Thanks, Tony

    on looking closer at the circuit board, it looks as though a tiny connector has been 'snipped'

  • jaw4 Jan 17, 2009

    Thankyou! Based on what I said about the snipped item. Do I need any other parts?
    Looking at the circuit board I can see the back of the out optical sitting on the board and immediately in front of it a tiny strip of core about 1/2 inch looks like the same piece of core 'wire' goes in place in front of the RCA' I correct?
    I can solder but do not have technical knowledge beyond what I see needs fixing visibly!

    Thankyou! I will order the part.....great help!
    OK Can I ask another one? I have a Harman Kardon CDR 26.
    3-4 years old and the left [player only] door sticks.
    When I first power it on I press the open door and have to tap it several times quite hard and then it opens. For the rest of the 'session' it will open normally......shut it off and re-power it and it'll happen again.
    I've had the top off and can see nothing out of the ordinary or sticking/catching at all in the mechanism!

    Thankyou and I have ordered the part for the Sony!

    Hi again,
    Below is an image of PCB where I marked solder points (3) for required jack.

    Above said jack has its own pins which will fix in PCB and its body will be tightened with screw at rear.

    I hope this will help you.

Getting no sound hooked up to pre-amp and 2 rotel 200w amps with snell speakers

You didn't say whether the player is connected by 2 RCA cables (analog) or by digital cable. If by RCA, does the player have a headphone jack? I had a player once with a piece of a headphone that broke off inside the jack, muting the analog outputs.

Having a problem with a sony cdp-ce275 5 discs are being checked and lifted but after goes through cycle it reads 'no disc'

These units have optical sensors in them and the pickup assembly may have gone out of alignment. The Spindle platter can sneek down and put the CD out of range of the focus. I worked on a lot of these in a refurbishing business. They are usually not fixed at service shops due top the high cost to repair such and item.

This is a player only that requires a receiver or pre-amp/amp combination to drive speakers. The output from this unit is what is called "line level" and can be connected to any CD/DVD/VCR or TAPE input on a receiver.

Sony CDP-CE235 CD Player

My guess is yes. The easiest way to find out, is to take a burnt CD, and stick it in there. If it doesn't come up reading error, or doesn't remain silent, then it plays them. Let me know what happens.
