Question about Sony MHC-ZX70DVD System

2 Answers

Buzzing speakers I've had my Sony MHC-ZX70DVD mini hi-fi for about 5 or 6 years and it's been absolutely fine, until now, when it's started making a buzzing/humming sound through the speakers. It doesn't change with the volume, but does disappear when there's no volume at all. I've tried unplugging everything and even using different speakers, but still they buzz. I've moved the stereo to a different room to make sure it wasn't the plugs or anything like that. Any ideas?

Re: Buzzing speakers

It is merely degradation of the connection. Try unconnecting the speakers, cleaning the tips a bit, replacing them in, removing, recleaning, and then replacing a final time. This should get some scoring off of the connection... Aside from this, a new set of speaker wire is the best solution but just let me know what you decide on! Hope this helps!

I have a Sony MHC-ZX70DVD unit, when turned on the display shows the radio working but ther is no audio output through to the speakers or headphones at all. Also the CD/DVD player woun't eject and all...

From Sony's Trouble Shooting site:

If none of this helps, I suggest making sure your wires are correctly connected from your CD player to the speakers. Also, make sure no exposed wires are touching, it should make an audible hiss if they are touching anywhere.
If none of this helps, then I suggest taking it back to where you got it, may just be a dud.

Hope you get it working though,

I cant play songs that are downloaded from inter net and written into a cd-r through nero . please assist me wat to do

Do you know what format they are in? The player probably cannot read the format. They should be in MP3 format, and the player can read them.
