Hi What you probably need is a line transformer.
If you have 300 ohm "twin lead " from outside and the receiver has coax , you need a 300 to 75 ohm transformer.
If you have a coax coming in to 2 screw terminals on the receiver , you need a 75 ohm to 300 ohm transformer.
Some place like Radio Shack or a stereo store would have them.

This evening my daughter revealed she had the same problem. I wiped the eye with a tissue - now it works!

Some times the obvious is the answer.

The economics might point toward replacement or just buy an upgraded external Bluray and be one step closer to the future.

if it opens back up when you close it the drawer mechanism is probably out of alignment. Most players have a slot on the bottom of the drawer that a pin must slide in. Look under the drawer and see if there is a pin sticking up that maybe should be in that slot.

My sharp cd-ba200 will barley play cds


Put the player On for few hours or overnight. Now remove the panel and get access to the optical head unit, use a clean ear bud to polish the optical head. If not the optical head is weak and must be replaced.

My does my cdj keep skipping on track 1 and 2


Try a head cleaner first and if that doesnt work then look around for a new cd player or use the computer as if its what i think it is then its not reading correctly and it not really repairable ,Well financialy viable as i think the memory reading of the circuitry is questionable.

My DVD player won't read, keeps saying disk error


In most cases when the CD does not play it is possible that the optical head is a suspect. Sometimes it might pick up ordinary audio CD but will not play other formats. This indicates that the optical head is weak and so there is no detection or scanning of the CD . If the optical is working the tracks will be read immediately but with no scanning the laser head can be defective.

The main motor will not work in some cases as unless the tracks are read the drive motor will not work with signal from the processor.
Sometimes certain cleaner disks will not be tracked to run for cleaning as it will not be read and so will reject. Hence it is ideal to manually clean the laser head eye using a cleaning swap /cotton bud with gentle pressure on the lens eye.
If there is no result then watch if the CD spins or tries to spin. If so the board seems to work unless a test is taken on the main board but the possibility of a defective optical head can be the suspected fault.
If any of the above seems otherwise we must recheck with possibilities of a malfunction of the main processor board

Disc plays two seconds and then stops.


Clean it, if that does not fix it, then take the cover off and unplug the ribbon connector for the laser and re connect it while the unit is unplugged. If that does not clear it up then you can contact Sony for a software update if there is one available, If it still is acting up, spend your money on a new unit instead of repairing the old.
