Sony car stereo CD load fault


I've never used a resource like this before it's amazing!

My very-little used (meaning not worn-out!) Sony car CD stereo stopped working last night making a whirring noise when trying to load a new CD (it is a single-CD manual-change model). It accepts the CD and pulls it in as usual, holds it for a couple of seconds, then spits it back out with "1 LOAD" on the display, followed within 10 seconds by "RESET" then switches off. Hope someone can help!

SOURCE: Speakers have died?

Probaby the stereo decoder IC went bad or a supply voltage to it is too low or noisy. If it has audio output jacks on the back of the TV, connect it to an external amplifier and see what that sounds like. If it is ok in stereo or mono mode then the amplifier in the TV is bad. This will prove that the stereo decoder is ok.

SOURCE: CD Stuck inside player

Depending on the make of the stereo it will have a 2 piece casing which will allow you to take one part off , normally the lid by removing a couple of small screws or the lid maybe even clipped onto the lower case. Once the lid is off you should be able to get the cd out. If the stereo is security coded do not disconnet it from the electric supply unless you have the code!

SOURCE: Alpine Ipod/Stereo Error 1 message

Sorry but the ipod should never "die" when it's plugged in. I own this system and have encountered the same problem. The ipod should be continuously charging if plugged in, therefore it should never run out of juice.
Things I've been told to do f rom Alpine themselves:
-Get latest version of ipod software from itunes
-Plug ipod back into unit (via cord) with car turned off
-hold the center button and play button until ipod resets itself
-take off alpine face
-press the little button behind face to reset unit
I have done this with some success. The problem returned once in a while, however, for some reason after doing the process listed again a few months back, I've not had the error.

SOURCE: 2002 Silverado- CD played ERR message

This is not a fuse problem, it may be a dirty laser lens or a broken loading mechanism, buy a CD player cleaner disk, if that won't work you will have to pull the unit out and send it in for repair at an authorized GM electronics repair station.

Sony CDP-CX400 Mega Storage CD player having issues ejecting disk. Can Load Error be cause by worn and "out of tension" belts? Table turns a bit slow and when I hit disk eject

Either a loose loading belt, or a weak loading motor can cause this fault. Check it. A weak loading motor can cause more faults. If the pulling power of this motor is low, the fault will occur. Replace this motor and the loading belt first. Check whether there is any gear wheels having broken teeth.

I get error 80010017 when i load a copied game on my ps3

When you say a copied game, I'm supposing you mean a game you've burnt to a CD. This is illegal, if you do mean that, I do not suggest it at all.
You cannot use burnt games on CD's on the PS3, as they have codes and software both on the system and the real CD's to confirm it's the real deal that you are using.

My Sony xr-c5100 car stereo wont play any cds and keeps showing a e99 fault on the display can you please tell me what that is . Thankyou

It is possible that the mechanism is jammed and so there is no loading of the carriage to the system. when the tracks are selected please try and hear if there is noise of the loading of the CD. If not there is a failure of the drive, failure of the loading section both of which needs a mechanical check within.
Please also have the optical head cleaned.

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.

When i insert a cd to my jvc car stereo it does not play it ejects it

2 common faults, either the disc is not loading fully
into the cd mechanism or the laser is dirty or failing.
To resolve the fault the unit will have to be removed
from car and inspected on bench. Obviously there
are can be alot of other reasons why the cd has failed,
you will require a reasonable background in electronics to
trace and repair.

Light doesnt work

Do you mean the Display?
If so ,it's a backlight issue. Some use little bulbs ( NAD and Yamaha)
Take it to a tech ( Ask your stereo store)

Cannot play my portable audio device with Sony cdx c500x

It will only accept audio from the bus in conections when a multi changer is connected and selected.

This is how I connect my mp3 player to my sony.

Swap multichanger audio outputs at the rear of the stereo for my mp3 player, press source to select multichanger.

Remember as I said, if there is not a control cable connected to your multichanger it wont wotk!
