Question about Sony MegaStorage CDP-CX455 400-Disc CD Changer

Open Question

I have a Sony CDP-CX455 400 CD changer (this is separate from my Sony CDP-CX400 player) in which the door opens whenever it feels like it. It can be in the middle of playing a disc or it can just be sitting dormant with the power on but no discs playing. Of course, if a disc is playing the disc stops playing when the door opens. What is causing this?

Hi There are many things that can cause your problem, I can tell you the most likely ones, but I recommend you don't take the unit apart, as the mech. in a 300 disk changer is complicated & delicate, and you may just cost yourself alot more money than getting it repaired. The symptoms you sescribe can be caused by failing laser pickup, dirty laser lense (especially if you've done home renvations with drywall), split drive gear that moves the laser on the sled rails, or even a hair or piece of dirt in the gear teeth of that same gear. The unit will play fine, until it hits the tooth where the debris are, then it skips, or jumps back a bit and starts again until it hits the same spot. Also..badly scratched or finger printed disks will cause that, but that is the first thing most people check. I wish it was something you could repair yourself, but my best advise is to take it to a reputable repair shop, and hope it is not a bad laser, as that is a fairly expensive repair. Hope this helps, Good Luck!

I currently own a Sony-400 CDP CX400, i was wondering if the remote control for my CX400 is compatible with the cx455, I also wanted to know what is the major differences in these two products?


just use the remote and if it works then it is compatible
many companies use the same remote frequencies between models as it saves on expense of producing new units
there may be a problem if the newer unit has extra items to remote control

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.

sounds like the mech may be out of alignment. I would try running it by hand and making sure everything is moving correctly.
