Try to use CD/DVD clening disk ($6 in Walmart). Or simply use cotton swab (Q-TIP) and 40 % ethyl alcohol (vodka) or 50-70% isopropyl alcohol (NO ACETONE), depending on your budget.
Also check if discs are inserted correctly and not damaged/durty etc. Also check your discs. Some CD-players dont accept burned CDs (copyed). I believe Sony is not the case, just a suggestion.
If cleaning wont help lens might be damaged.
Good Luck

My Sony CFD-S33 CD player has started only playing 10 min of each CD


Clean the optical pickup lens, by inserting a lens cleaning disc into the player. If it do not help you, repalce the optical pickup unit. Sony sets will have special type optical picku units. You might have to contact the authorised service center for Sony at your town, to get an original one.

Cd player won't work on my CFD-560


Hello
Insert a lens cleaning disc into the system, and play it at least three times, by eject it out and reinsert in each time. If it does not help you, the laser pickup unit of your Cd player should be replaced with same type and number. OK.

Sony CFD-S33 boom box not playing cd's


HelloP
Insert a lens cleaning disc into the set and play it at leat three times. If the fault is due to accumulation of dust, the cleaning disc will clean it out and your set will be work again. If this does not help you, the laser pickup unit of the set is faulty, and should be replaced with same type and number. The lens cleaning disc can be bought from most of the electronic spare part selling shops at your twon, and won't cost more. OK.

Sony CFD-F10 wont play cds, says no disc


Hello,

how long have you been using this player? The problem should be from the lens (laser).

The lens is weak and that's why it cannot read/load Cd's. The weak lens is also what's making it say "no disc".

Get a lens cleaner and use it to clean the lens, but if the lens still does the same thing even after using the lens cleaner, then it means you would have to change the whole lens completely to a brand new one.

By so doing your player would play all Cd's with no problem at all.

Good luck.

Just bought a used sony cfd-c1000. It will play most of my burned cd's but not one specific one: they are all on cd-r and I burned them all the same way with the same program, any ideas why it won't work?


My first two thoughts are: 1) It's a defective disc or 2) The disc wasn't finalized after it was burned. CD-R discs will not play on any machine other than the one that they were recorded on until they are finalized on that recorder. If it will play on the recorder and it has been finalized then just burn another copy of it. I have seen disc compatibility issues on one disc out of a stack of 100 before.

I have a sony CFD-S01 which will play commercial cd's but when a cd-r is inserted it either won't recognize the disk or it jumps constantly after appros 10 sec, any ideas?


The CFD-S01 is designed for use with CD-R and CD-RW discs. With that in mind a few things come to mind. Are the CD-R discs you are using music or data discs? There is a difference and some CD players do not get along with data discs and won't play them well if at all. Also the burn rate used can have an effect - too fast and it won't play well. If a disc doesn't play at all it might not be finalized. A disc must be finalized on the recorder it was burned on before it is playable on any other machine.
