Question about Audio Players & Recorders

1 Answer

Hi, I have a Sony 200 disc CD changer. It was working perfectly yesterday until I put in a new CD to play. All of a sudden it wouldn't read the new CD and when I opened the player to check if I had entered the right CD number to play all the discs started to get all out of place. I got the ones out that were in the way and misaligned and I also saw some that were in the back of the player and I pulled those out. It was very problematic - the more I turned the player the more the CDs moved out of their slots. It would spin, and I could hear it "reading" a CD but it would not play. After turning it off for about 30 minutes (unplugging it) now it only says NO DISC when there are at least 20 discs in there. This is a fairly new changer but I did get it off ebay. It was in the original box and in practically unused condition. The person said it had been used once. Of course I don't know but it sure didn't look used at all. Anyway, let me know if you have any suggestions. I own a dance studio and this player is literally my lifeline and I need it fixed asap. Thanks in advance, Laurel

Hi there.

There could be a couple of reasons. I doubt very much that it is due to the lens. First thought is that it is probably the locking mechanism. If you look at the cd loading mechanism, there is a small plate with a locking tab that moves into place to hold the carousel still when the unit is loading a cd. This plate slides along the bottom of the unit between the cd loader and the carousel.

Secondly, it could be that the carousel is jammed on the rotating platter that it moves on. A couple of screws and it should come out - be carefull not to bend anything!

Thirdly, check the stepper motor that turns it - but I doubt this is the problem either as you said you couldn't turn it by hand either. You will need to remove the carousel to do this.

Thanks for contacting Fixya

when you reset it, it reset to the factory default tuning frequency, find it by pressing seek several times while a cd is playing until you hear your disc. save that station.

All players need cleaned from time totime. Do NOT try to clean it with anything other than a CD / DVD lens cleaner. They are available almost everywhere that sellsBlank media. It will clean the lens without scratching or smearing it.

Sony CDP CX 235 200 cd changer-cd's dropping off


Hi there.

I reckon that they are not being put back correctly by the loading mechanism! This is a common problem with these units. It is highly unlikely that they are actually falling off the carousel.

Open the unit, and watch it as it loads and replaces the cd's from the carousel. You will probably find that instead of grabbing the disc off of the spindle and putting it back, it might be grabbing before the cd is even in its grip. This then simply bumps the cd out of the way, and it will fall inside of the unit.

The good news is that it can be fixed with a bit of very gentle bending and persuading. But be very carefull when doing this!

Good Luck!
