Question about CD Players

Sony cdp - c445 cd multi player (5)

I am obviously doing something wrong here. I posted a question about 4 hours ago and don't know how to find it.
I checked my profile and found no indication that I had posted.

I indicated that we had "tiny hands" visitors recently and that our cd ...multi 5 disc is now not working properly. We are all adults here in the household.
In any event my bro gave it to us when he moved without giving a manual. We have encountered no problems to date.

What happens now is when we try to play our 5 discs and usually listen to each disc all in order and each song in order there is a "mess".

As an example I press Disc 3 Song 1 and there is a whirring shuffling sound inside and the Disc moves to 5 and starts playing Song 3 as an example and I attempt to enter Disc 3 and Song 1 again and this continues to persist.
When the song finishes I then enter another Disc number and song number and try again and then sometimes it will go to say Disc 5 song 6 and even Repeat that song.

All we have ever done here is manual selection of discs and songs and had no issues.
We have never programmed, shuffled etc. as had no manual and would not know what we are doing. We were satisfied with what we did.

It would be great to have the manual, however Googling brought out nothing.
I tried shutting off the power bar for the stereo system and counting to 10 which sometimes helps "Vcr" problems and turned the power bar back on and the problem was still there.
We are putting up our Christmas tree and would like to get the cd player working properly.
I genuinely hope that there is some one here that can lend assistance or point to where we may find a manual.
Kind Regards, with Great Appreciation for your time.
Frustrated new member !!!!

Sorry but your unit might need a new laser assembly. Laser assembly is weak.Repair would be around $75-95 at an honest repair facility .But first I would try to blow off laser with air duster can.Open unit up ,power up and press OPEN tray without disc.You will see laser assembly against back of unit in the middle .dust off laser eye carefully .then try it,,goodluck

Hello. I have a Sony CDP-C445 5-Disc CD Changer. Could it possibly have a Battery in it? And might it need to be replaced? There is one feature on my unit that has not been responding to me. It...

There is not a battery in your unit, but it does sound like that switch does not work anymore. If you are good at soldering, you can change the switch in a short amount of time.

Player does not recognize disks that have been loaded. When you hit Play, it pauses, checks all of the slots in the tray, and says there are no disks.


how long have you been using this player? The problem should be from the lens (laser).

The lens is weak and that's why it cannot read/load Cd's. The weak lens is also what's making it say no disk.

Get a lens cleaner and use it to clean the lens, but if the lens still does the same thing even after using the lens cleaner, then it means you would have to change the whole lens completely to a brand new one.

By so doing your player would play all Cd's with no problem at all.

Good luck.

Do you know if the Sony CDP-C215 can play MP3 format?

No ... This is a 1st generation multi-disk player and, although it's a great, reliable, unit, it does not recognize MP3 or WMA files. You can play BURNed (automatically copied as CDI files) or RIPped copies (converted to WAV files only). The files are much larger ... but more detailed and accurate than compressed formats.

I have a stuck cd in back of my Sony CDP-C325

Armed with a small phillips head jewelers screwdriver, you should remove all the screws holding the black large top cover.  Be careful to put the screws in a cup or small container(s) so not to lose them.  You will find four on the sides, at least two on the back, and when you have removed all of them, remove the cover by lifting the back up and out.  look inside and you should see your CD!  remove it carefully and replace the cover and all the screws.     I hope this will solve your problem.  Please comment on my solution if you need any further guidance.  best Regards,  Michael Mittelsdorf
