Question about Sony MegaStorage CDP-CX355 300-Disc CD Changer
My onkyo reciever does not have a code that will operate the cd changer.
I have the same unit and same problem...This one skips on the first song only. I took the unit apart and looks like the disc spindle is not centered.
Because the laser reads from the center (first song) out (to the last) the disc spins much faster during the songs at the beginning of the disc. As it slows down toward the end songs the skipping is not a problem...
Still working on correcting the problem...although I think I have identified the issue...not sure on how to correct it....new spindle or motor assembly? Where do you get one? Is it worth it to fix or replace?

I got a free one of these from my work...well that is because it was having the same problem and they didn't want to mess with it haha. Sooo...I brought it home..thinking i could just buy a cd cleaner kit and clean the dirty lens..which is what normally causes these problems. To my dismay this didn't work (later found that the lens is a good half inch away from the disc)..so i decided to open the bad boy up (hey I got it for free...no harm crackin it open :-) ) After hitting the lens with a can of air..I tried again...no go. And just so you all know...this player runs vertically..not horizontally. I want to know how does the player read? the lens in stationary. All other players i have seen the lens moves up and down. I'm thinking it might have something to do with that. I gave up on cleaning it and started doing some searches..this was the only forum that was somewhat helpful. I agree with Silverscreen. When i watch the cd's playing the disc wobbles SLIGHTLY up and down. I think the rear stand-alone wheel is a bit too loose. ..The amount it wobbles is hardly noticed but is the only thing i see out of the ordinary.

I think CD Mechanism needs service and might required belts replacement.
You need to get service manual of your CDX-C225 model to do this job as manual contains all technical info about mechanism etc.
