Question about Sony MHC-GX450 CD Shelf System

Sony MHC-GX450 CD's Skip

Intermittently a verified clean non-skipping CD will SKIP when placed in any of the 3 slots. Usually it's just the first two tracks which skip. Sometimes if I take the CD out, power off & back on the player and then reinsert the CD, it plays ok. What's up here?

Try using a laser lens cleaner. I have the Maxell Thunderon one thats on a Gold CD that you can get at best buy for like $20 or so, seems to work good here on the computer disc drives

I have no clue how to hook up my acer computer to a sony mhc gx450. Please include all the wires i need.

Look up "Hooking Up Optional Components" and assess what your PC's audio and video capabilities are that would use the Game Inputs. The Sony end accepts standard RCA pin cables x 3. Adapters are available at any electronics store to match your PC to that. Within the PC you need to configure the audio via whatever Sound Controls are in charge.

My stereo won't even read the CD-player cleaner. Where is the laser lens, so I can clean it?

You need to unscrew the Sony MHC-GX450 CD Shelf System where the player is located and pull the whole DVD/Cd assembly.I suggest you have it done by professional technician since the laser lens is very sensitive.If its not reading the CD cleaner it only means that the laser is worn out and needs to be replaced.

Sony mhc-gx450 cd player is not reading.I used a cd cleaner and d

First unplug the unit and press the power button to make sure all the power is out of the unit. Try to take a cotton qtip and clean the lazer lense with alcohol. after wipe it clean with a new cotton qtip to remove the film the alcohol produces. Do not use a lot of alcohol and drip it all inside of the unit though.
Also if you tried a cd-r try a real copy instead. Make sure your cd's are ok.
Good luck.

I have a Sony MHC GX470. It has been working great since I've had and the sound quality is awesome but since 2 days ago the cd player keeps skipping and it'll restart the song and skip again or it freezes....

I think grooves are dirty / clogged in sled section of lens mechanism. There is flexible wire between lens and circuit board and this should also be checked as it can be cracked or misaligned.
Below is exploded view of lens in MHC-GX470 and marked area to be checked or cleaned.

well it depends on how you feel about opening your system. have you tried a cleaning cd? if not, then do that. If not, and u want to open it, then get some electronic cleaner spray (not sure how its called) and blow the laser clean. There are some resistors you can adjust, but thats getting very trick.

good luck
