    What do you mean by 'not working' exactly?


    Does it look like its playing?
    Have you tried a normal audio cassette (to acertain whether its the ipod adapter)
    Is there audio, noise or no audio at all?

I would have to agree with the broken drive belt.
It could be jamming (and not in good way!), and thinking its gotten to the end of the tape... then flipping sides.

If thats the case, make sure that there are no obstructions, and that the mp3 adapter is freely allowed to spin, otherwise I would have to suggest taking it into a local repairer to have a look at.
Sorry for the bad news.
Any other suggestions Fixya guys?

I have a Sony Compact Disc Receiver, Model HCD-VA550. The audio cassettes and tuner work. The CD flashes "Initial", and the CD door won't open and our new CDs (5) are stuck in there. I note a few others...


I have the same problem and have worked past it by turning the unit off, waiting until I hear the mechanism stop completely and turning it back on. Sometimes this works the first time and, more often, I have to repeat the process several times. Eventually everything comes up as it should and the unit functions as it was designed. It doesn't work long, and almost always has to be 'rebooted' the next time I want to use it. Except that it is a great unit when it works, I would toss it on the garbage pile and get something else.
