Sometimes i put a CD in and it will start to read it and then come up with CD error, is there any reason for this? Other times it will play it fine until you go to change the CD then you have the same...

Hi, It could be a scratched cd or a dirty lazer inside the unit. Any car wax or pledge works wounders on cd and dvds. And if it's the player you cold look for a lazor head cleaner. It lloks like a cd only it has fine hairs that brush of the lens of the lazer. good luck

I get the TOC Error, when I put bought cds in.

don't think you will like this answer but, it probably time to get a new cd player... you could try using a cd cleaner designed to clean the laser or spray the insides with compressed air.

CDs don't always Play

It could be a few different factors.

Do you burn your cd's with a computer?
If so,what program do you use?If you use Nero,Roxio or any burning software of this sort,the data may not burn correctly resulting in an error during playback.

Another common problem can be the cd you are using or the drive it burns on.There are so many variables in CD burning that can lead to these issues.It happens to me a lot,so the solution is:

Use windows media to burn and it should go well most of the time.If you still have the problem,it may be the drive which can be replaced at low cost.

If they are regular cds you bought from the record company,than it is most likely the brand of car stereo you have.The laser could be damaged from putting scratched or damaged cd's in,or it could just be that the player is not great.

Error 13 MP3 playback

Ah.. Error13! Not again! Anyways this is a very common problem in all kinds of players that have USB support. Error 13 means device communication error usually due to power failure. Looks like some loose contact inside this player. Taking it apart and rewiring will fix the issue..

Hope this helps,

make sure it is set to cd/wma/mp3 mode

press menu then go to set up then I think general and then look for play mode or cd mode. something like that.\

ps if it was over heating the unit actual tells you that it is over heated and then powers down.

MP3 files start skipping/popping after few minutes of playback

Sony say in the manual that if you record high bit-rate mp3's the sound may be intermittent. I feel this is due to the decoder having to move ALOT of bits around to play, try some makeing a disk with mixed rate mp3's on. e.g.) some 64Kbps, some 128, some 192, and some as high as you can get and see if there is any differ Luck
