    I just wish there were another company that made a unit that did what the Sony did. Sony is so difficult to get information from

    Pioneer still makes a mega-changer as well. The mechanism is no more reliable than the sony though.

    My bad...In order to try to get the turntable moving, I tried to manually push it..

  • Alan Ginsburg Jan 04, 2013

    What I did was totally destroy the gearing, belts, and transjort mechanism.

  • Alan Ginsburg Jan 04, 2013

    After talking to Sony directly, and leaarning that the gearing module would cost more than a new unit, I ordered a new one from Amazon.

Could be a broken/loose carousel belt. take the cover off and look near the back of the unit and make sure that both belts are on there respective pulleys.

Why am I experiencing a vibration or grinding while turning?


get the car serviced and diagnosed? noise finding takes hands on work. not guessing.
do you need list. and are you a hands on person? many here are not just looking for wild guessing. which are you>?

i cant even guess. as you never said what corner or car makes noise. kinda key to Discovery. and cause.
my guess its the front. end.
bad brakes.
bad wheel bearings
bad U-joints. up front.
disc caliper pistons stuck or the guide pins SEIZED.
Disc rotor damage of any kind. (inspections find most of these)

tires with too low pressure can cause odd effects. truly odd.
one tire i had , had side wall deformations, (cheap tires , factory 2nds by previous owners) and when low, they make steering wheel ripple effects///, the most odd thing ive ever seen, not 1960 when this happened all the time. (nylon cord tires or worse).
Inspect tires for damage or low air pressure, (every 30 days)

but grinding is bad news, any machine that grinds, is the sign of doom. (metal against metal dry)

the rule on noise, is LOCATION , it's exact location.

I have an old Aiwa stereo with a 5-CD changer. The remote control has RC-7AS05 on it. How can I program the CD player to play the CDs continuously?


Press the RANDOM/REPEAT button and watch the unit's display. There will be a graphic changing to show the different functions: Disc repeat....All Repeat.

Try out the different modes unit you find the one that plays all the discs in the carousel.

I have a sony 400 cd player and the lights come on, but the carousel won't move. When I press any button the button will light up but nothing happens. The blue light flashes all the time. Also, the door...


sounds like your loading mechanism is jammed up. I would take the cover off, and look in the back where the cd's load to play and see if you can see anything out of place.

Grinding noise when playing Premier Manager 2008


If your not getting the same problem with other games and you have cleaned the laser lens then it's going to be down to a faulty disk. The store you purchased the game from should replace it for you or you can have it replaced by Zoo Digital but this involves sending the disk to them and can be time consuming.

M-Error is a mechanical error and could have a multitude of causes. just went through it with a TAD-5160 unit where it was a small slip gear moving a tin lever to ingage the transport sled to insert or eject the disk from and to the carusel. You may have to take the unit apart and asess the problem. Harleysp.
