Question about Sony PSYC ICF-CD831 Clock Radio

1 Answer

CD player stopped working on Sony ICF-CD831 PSYC Clock Radio/CD P

The CD player on my son's Sony ICF-CD831 PSYC Clock Radio/CD Player stopped working. It will start to spin, but before the disk starts to play, it stops spinning. Are there heads to clean, or any other user adjustable parts on this? It's a great machine, but it isn't made anymore so I can't just replace it.

I've been able to prolong the life on mine by doing this:

Insert the disc, then spin it by hand and quickly close the door and hit play.

It's always worth using a laser cleaner first, as it may just be dirty and stops spinning because it cannot read the disc.

Cd sony 815 does not play cd


If you mean the Sony Model # ICF-CD815. A.K.A. Dream Machine
you should check the user manual, for troubleshooting instructions:
https://docs.sony.com/release/ICFCD815.pdf
from the manual:
"
The CD player does not operate.
  • Did you close the CD lid?
  • Did you place the disc correctly?
  • The disk should be placed with the labeled side up.
  • Dusty or defective disc-Clean the disc with an optional cleaning cloth. Wipe the disc from the center out
  • Take out the CD and leave the CD compartment open for about an hour to remove moisture condensation.
"

It seems to be a top loader system, so a few checks are in order:
  • Check that the disc spins (Insert CD, try to play and open the tray) Be careful, the disc might fly out of the tray!
  • Clean the CD drive lens with a cotton bud and some optical cleaner (camera shops and radio repair shops/techs should have a suitable liquid)
If the unit seems totally broken, take it to a tech or recycle it at a waste electronics depot and get a new one.

Belt either came off or is slipping. You can open the system up and view it yourself, just make sure the stereo is unplugged.

Sony ICF-CDK50 (under counter kitchen clock radio) just installed, everything works fine except for sporadic intermittent beeping (3 to 5 beeps). Instructions give no clue as to cause or solution.


sorry, I can't shed much light on this problem, but it appears to have been fixed. We played around with setting the time, although it didn't need fixing and with the timer.

Screw that why am I paying for a repair that I did nothing to it.. Do yourself a favor & throw it away just like I did my 3 Sony PSYC alarm clocks.
