Question about Yamaha CDX-560 CD Player

Open Question

How can I use on old stereo receiver/CD player as an HTPC case?

I want to build an HTPC out of an old CD receiver (similar to the mod project on http://www.byopvr.com/Sections+index-req-viewarticle-artid-11-page-1.html)

I have access to several old receivers in a used-parts shop, but I don't really know where to start:
- are all receivers generally the same size?
- How do I choose the best receiver (in terms of dimensions, location of CD tray etc.)?
- Can I fit a mini ATX board inside?
- how about the PSU? will it fit?

Will appreciate any help or reference.

thanks!

Any unit this old is what we call Not Economically Repairable - or cheaper to replace than repair. It all depends on how much it bugs you.

Since you have 2 receivers, you can either use the Sony STR-AV570X or the TA-AX380. You will need 3 Stereo RCA Cables to connect your CD Player, Tuner, and Tape Player. The speakers connect to the receiver you choose using the speaker input terminals.

My cd player will not take any cds in it can you tell me what is wrong


first, check for a cd already inside. you may have to open the stereo and manually remove it. if not, does your stereo power on? if so and there is no other cd in your stereo, then still manually remove it and test it with the case off. if it does not react when you place a cd inside, you most likely will have to get a new one.

Cant get cd out of pioneer hed.p9200r


Try and tease it out through the **** in the front using an old CD or credit card (or similar)

If that does not work then the whole player will have to be removed from the dashboard and the case opened for the jammed CD to be released and the mechanism checked.

Make sure you have the security code (if applicable) if you have to disconnect the player

Replace 2005 Nissan altima stereo receiver


Try radio shack, or stereo sales/installation place for ready to go plug adapter. For a few bucks, it saves headaches, and butchering the wiring in case you want to re-install old one later when trading in or selling the car.
