Question about Sony CDP-CX230 CD Player
Loading arm sometimes does not grab a cd. Disc falls back onto carousel, or worse, misloads in reader, jamming against carousel or just hanging. Tried to identify common issue, but seemed quite random. Any ideas?

That is usually because of dirty or defetive lens.
Try first using a len cleaner , like the ones here.
If this does not work it will be necessary to take apart the unit and accees the lens to clean it, or replace the lens pickup. The repair must be done by a technician.
In this case call the number listed on the owner manual to get assistance

Take the small back cover off and take some electrical grade contact cleaner and spray all around the lens area, that worked for me.

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!

Hi there, had a similar problem.
This unit is easy to open. the four screws on the sides and two i think on the back. When it is open you will have access to the discs in the machine. the last disc will probably be jammed between the facia and the caddy and will be impeding the carousel mechanism, once removed you should check the functions starting with eject, and again to cycle, load disc position 1 insert disc and check. this player i think rotated the disc on loading to a set position, would have to open one to check. hopefully the carousel is not out of sync and all is well.
