Question about Sony CDP-CX400 400-Disc CD Changer

Open Question

I just picked up a Sony CDP-CX400 disc changer. When I turn it on (with no discs inside), the carousel keeps spinning back and forth. It doesn't seem to spin all the way around either. It just spins roughly one-third of the way one way, then spins roughly one-third of the way the other way. The "play" button isn't pushed. This happens just from turning the unit on without anything in it. The blue light inside keeps blinking throughout. The only thing that will make the carousel stop turning is to either power the unit off, or hit the button that opens the door, or strangely enough, insert a disc and play it. Yes, the unit does play, but if I insert a disc into, for example, slot #400 while the display reads another number (such as #390) and close the door to the unit, the carousel spins partially around and the LED display numbers rapidly ascend until they get to #240, then they stop there at #240 and the carousel just rotates partially back and forth with the display stuck on #240. But if I manually turn the big knob to #400 and press "play", the disc then plays. Then if I press "stop" the carousel finally stops spinning back and forth. In other words, unless the LED display is set to the slot that actually has a disc in it, the carousel will just spin partially back and forth without stopping, even without pushing the "play" button, while the LED display remains stuck on #240. Can you help me with this?

The rubber drive belt for the c/d load mech is streched or broken,

SOURCE: ALL SEEMS FINE BUT WON'T PLAY DISCS.

I would suggest taking a can of compressed air to the disk tray to ensure the laser is clear of all possible debris

Disc will not load on sony cdp cx400


Loader mechanism fault. Not engages the CD properly to desired tray section. Contact any service technician. The loader tray should be repaired, and this is not a user repairable fault.

I have a sony 400 cd player and the lights come on, but the carousel won't move. When I press any button the button will light up but nothing happens. The blue light flashes all the time. Also, the door...


sounds like your loading mechanism is jammed up. I would take the cover off, and look in the back where the cd's load to play and see if you can see anything out of place.

Player was moved discs fell forward. Now when the player comes on it makes a horrible sound. Can't get door to open


you're going to have to open the player by removing the top cover and returning the discs to their correct places on the carousel. If you've coded the discs' locations and disc names it will be a pain to have to re-code them, I don't know if the memory will clear if you take the discs out and power the unit up and it finds they're not there.
I believe the discs being out of place are what is preventing the door from opening. It's operated by a motor located under the right front of the carousel, and the only way to get it it is to remove the carousel.... which isn't hugely easy but it can be done, you'll have to take the top stuff off inside, unplug at least several of the cables etc so you can move the top board out of the way. Make sure that all the discs are back in their places on the carousel, OR removed, before you turn the unit back on.
