Question about Sony MHC-RXD3 CD Shelf System

2 Answers

Worth fixing? with the unit off, lightening struck nearby my house. When I turn on the unit now, I get only aloud 'clicking' sound. Everything lights up. Is this worth taking to a service shop and having it looked at? I have unplugged, plugged it in, etc. As soon as a I plug the unit in the clicking begins. Using the power button makes no difference at all. Thanks

Re: worth fixing?

Open the cassette deck and use a pen to push the heads down. After this, it would probably work better to avoid using the deck.

Re: worth fixing?

As long as you aren't using the deck the clicking sound won't start again if you once've push down the casette heads.

It won't play a cd. Everything else works fine. When I put a cd in everything indicates it is working fine but no sound comes out.

Have you tried more than 1 cd
? May just need to be cleaned but if it is a few years old it may be the laser is bad and probably not worth fixing.

SA-AK640 power but no sound

From the description it looks like audio output ic problem in the unit, double check your speaker connections on the back, if okay! suspect the above problem.

If the speakers vibrate especially when the mega bass is on, does that mean that the speakers are blown on my icf-cdk50?

Real low bass is mostly vibration. Anything that has a "mega bass" 'enancement' is cutting corners to make up for bass-reproduction shortcomings. Speakers measuring 2-5/8' have no business reproducing real bass. Blown speakers would be silent. Torn cones from excessive volume might sound like unwanted vibration. Your vibration might be a resonance of the unit's own housing, mounting hardware or something nearby. Try moving it to another location.

These units are not economically repairable. If you like it and you think it's broken you might snag a whole new on on eBay with wise bidding.

Audio is not working

I think in these type of models that the entire amp might be an IC (to save on space). It will be located on an big metal heatsink. If it does use one of these, from what you say I would say a static charge took it out, hence both channels dead!

It may look like this:

No sound from old Sony HST231 Stereo System

It sounds as if the amplifier within the unit itself is dead, especially if the speakers AND headphones don't work. It most audio receivers, the amplifier is wired separately from the rest of the circuitry, meaning that the unit could appear to be working properly, but no sound will be produced.
I would just replace it, especially if it is an older unit. The parts (if even still available) and labor could be well above what a brand new one would cost.

No sound whatever

when you switch the unit on make sure that you hear two clicks, this will tell you whether the protection relay is working. Should you hear the two clicks this will indicate that the audio ic`s are working. There are fuses inside the main component box, four on the transformer. Let me know the outcome

Clicking sound in tape deck

All Aiwas  are prone to this problem.  The doors are a real pain and easily give up the ghost.  I have 2, both probmatic in this direction.
I have spoken to others about this problem. Seems no easy fix.
Have you in your case, tried leaving and old tape in the tape part of your  unit . The noise you hear, usually starts when tape unit area doors are about to pack a wobbly. Unless under warrenty, proberly,
not worth getting fixed.    It seems something gets weak in the activation part and get a mind of its own.  Very common after about 3 yrs of ownership.  All the best: jamz
