SOURCE: Does not detect CD in drive.

do you have it apart enough to view the CD transport mechanism ? if i so is the CD spinning up ?
over time the laser brightness diminishes and is not eluminating the cd proporly, there is a brightnes controll on the laser assembly, this can be ajuusted to a small degree to restore oporation, mark the original position of the control, the controll is located on a small pcboard where the plug enters the laseser asembely, turn the controll clockwise only about 5 to 10 percent, now atempt to read a good known cd, if it reads, leave it, if not turn the controll counter clock by 5 to 10 persent of the original poition, now try the cd again, if it works leave it, if not the laser may be defective and needs replacing, all this is asuming that the lense is cleen so prior to ajustment cleen the lense, also insure the lense is in place, some lenses have fallen off in my past experiances, and may be rateling around inside the unit, don`t lose it, you can very carefully glue it back in place using crazy glue, the assembely is quite easy to replace, you will see when you have it apart, if you can find a new one for a reasonable price this may be an option for you, one other thing, observer the carage, note if it seems to slide tho the center and then position itself a small portion away from the center this happens only when the unit is trying to read a CD , if so good, if not this may be due to a defective home switch used to position the laser over the appropriate track to read the directory of the CD, you can see the switch, and can be easily replaced, you will know how when you see it, that's what i know so now you know, good luck

Tv repairs shops carry a selection of power supply cords, also check out Radio Shack Stores.

SOURCE: I need a replacement power

Believe it or not, some charitable thrift store might keep them in a bin and sitting out for sale loose.

CHKD, DAV, Salvation army. . . probably get you one for a dollar or two?

My Sony CFD-S33 CD player has started only playing 10 min of each CD

Clean the optical pickup lens, by inserting a lens cleaning disc into the player. If it do not help you, repalce the optical pickup unit. Sony sets will have special type optical picku units. You might have to contact the authorised service center for Sony at your town, to get an original one.

Can I buy just the power cord for my cd player Sony CFD- S200?

Can't see why not.If its like a kettle lead and unplugs from the back just replace it with one that has the same amp fuse in it.They can be picked up very cheaply.Maybe its just the fuse gone on the original?if so just replace it very cheaply.

My CFD-100 stopped working and I sent it to be repaired. They said they couldn't find a new laser to fix the problem. Do you know where to find one or where I can get it repaired? If not, do you know of...

The replacement optics for this unit are KSS-210B. These are readily available new from the secondary market. I stock 10 of these as a repair shop because of their being so common. Expect to pay in the $20-$30 range for the part. This is a 45min-1.25 hour repair.

My sony CFD-E100 won't recognize CDs

use a cotton swab to clean the optical lens-which is seen by opening the CD cover. if after cleaning the lens it still doesnt play a cd - exercise all manual switches(could be a dirty cd/radio switch), several times. after these steps, and the cd still refuses to spin...its hopless. the optic is bad.and not economical to repair. bet the cotton swab does the trick.

My cfd-510 radio wont play cd's how can i fix it? everytime I try to play a cd it atempts to but can't

Open up the top and try cleaning the lens using a cotton swab and alcohol. If that fails to resolve the problem, then the optics need to be replaced. These units use KSS-150 optics, I think. These are still available (or a substitute) for around $20 for the part.
