A little while back, the system went into standby mode & now it won't return to "pwer up" mode. CDs are getting stuck. I have to unplug the system from the wall outlet & wait a while - as if to give the system a chance to reset itself. The "reset" lasts long enough for me to retrieve my CDs. Please help me . . . I bought this as a gift (paid good money for it) & it only lasted a year. How embarrassing!

After calling SONY support, they wanted me to send the entire system - speakers, cables... Please! That's is dumb, and the rep had to be reading it from a script.
So I managed to get the covers off and figured it out on my own. The drive belt for the CD tray had come off the pulleys. I simply put it back on and... Voila! Saved myself hundreds of dollars for a $2 belt. I called SONY and ordered two spares. Sometimes, if you have some mechanical and basic electrical skills you can save yourself a lot of money and aggravation.
unit being stuck in stand by mode is an indication that its having a power
problem. Remove its plug from the wall and fix it back into the wall,
then turn it on again. If its still stuck in standby mode, then the power
supply board in the unit is the cause of the problem.
supply board might be defective and maybe that's why the unit won't
power up. Its receiving power but it cannot transfer the current to the
necessary part of the unit because a capacitor, diode, etc may have been
faulty. Until these bad components are replaced, the unit might not
If you know about electronics repairers, I would suggest
that you disassemble the unit and read the power board/panel with a
meter, detect the bad component and replace it.
If you don't know about electronic repairs, take the unit to the nearest repairman to fix the fault for you.
hello, try this You need to enter MENU mode. To do this you press the little search button next to the volume knob. What you do is hold that button for about 1-2 seconds. It will then come up with menu demo on. I think you press the volume knob and it will go off
Turn the power off and back on at the mains. With the machine now in standby, press and hold the "Play Mode" and "Minidisc Play/Pause" buttons together. The machine will enter test mode and the disc should eject. Switch the power on and off again at the mains and the machine should be back to normal.
