Question about Sony CDX-L480X CD Player

1 Answer

Buttons don't work. Sometimes when I click Source button several times, radio gets turned on if I have enough luck, but in most cases it's pointless), then I can change nothing. Volume change, programm number, just all buttons don't work. Display works ok. I have cleaned front panel connector - still unsuccesful. Its probably ruined already, but there is still hope.

    Good point headgardener. I've tried resetting it after cleaning front panel connector. Still nothing. Probably mechanical/electronic problem with buttons switches. Repair guy changed some suspicious looking buffering diodes, it works now, but sometimes problem comes back.

Try resetting it. Remove front panel, on main unit is an indent that says reset, insert ballpoint to reset and replace front panel. Everything should now work although you will need to reset stations and clock.

My VX revolution is missing too much left clicks. Sometimes I need to click 5 times to get 1 click. All the others buttons are working fine. How I can fix this? thks


Seems that the left mouse button needs to be replaced. If you have an old mouse, you can use it as a source of a spare mouse button, & replace the defective button on your VX Revolution.
However, you need to make sure that:
1. The replacement button is identical to the defective one.
2. You have enough skills to solder/desolder electronic components.

Front panel buttons on Philips rear projection do random things


Leaky tact switches on control panel. Part number is 242212802742. Takes 6. They will cost you around 6.00 a piece. Lower front panel pulls off. Be careful as there are two cables attached to htis panel. This should take care of your issues.

Won't switch to tuner


Sounds like the source button is not working properly. I have seen this type of problem caused by a crack in the display board. It can also be a bad contact on the source button.
Could be several other things as well, but most of the time it is something like a cracked board.
You can also try resetting the unit, look to see if there is a very small pin hole sized button on the display someplace, if so, use a paperclip or a toothpick, ect. to depress that switch. you might get lucky and the micro just needs to be reset. Sometimes you can reset a unit by disconecting the power wires for a few seconds, or just unplug the harness in the back for a short time.

Hope this helps

The radio screws holding the radio are not tight enough. to eliminate this problem remove the radio and adjust the pressure screw in the rear of the radio so it comes out farther>. if the radio is not far enough in the compartment to push in that button the radio controls will not work

Time setting


Make sure unit is off by pressing and holding the 'Source' button. Wait 3 seconds, and then press and hold the 'Source' button. Do Not Release the button! A display reading "Initial" will show. Then use the arrow buttons surrounding the 'Source' to set clock. The 'Function' button isn't involved, dispite what the manuel states.

Buttons Don't Work


I would strongly lean towards factory service. Sounds like the circuit board has problems.

Good luck.
