Question about Sony CDP-CX400 400-Disc CD Changer

1 Answer

I have a Sony CDP-CX400 that has a flashing blue light.

The door will not open. It was making a noise so I replaced the belts. The noise stopped but the blue light still flashes and door will not open. No CDs are in the unit but it shows different titles when I turn the dial. Is there a reset procedure I can do after replacing belts?

    How do I run it by hand to align? Do I put a CD in the reader and turn the wheel assembly? Please give more detail. Thanks.

    no, just turn the pulley that the belt is on and make sure everything is moving correctly.

    Hi, I checked and everything was moving smoothly and even moved it until the pulley started making noise. I moved it back and no noise. I also tried manually putting in a CD then it started making noise again and the CD was not spinning. The blue light never stopped flashing. Any other ideas, I appreciate the suggestions.

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

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

SOURCE: My unit powers on but

Hi,

The blue light indicates an internal error. Clicking noise is an indication of a hardware failure.Internal error correction circuitry in the deck is designed to overcome data loss due to scratches and cannot mask the loss of large amounts of data from spindle or tracking mis-alignment,hence the tssst noise.

You could try to clean the lens using a lens cleaner as it could be due to dirty lens.

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

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.
