Question about Sony MHC-GX8800 CD Shelf System

2 Answers

Hello My mhc gx8800 has just stopped playing cds.  It started to play the cd in it and then 30 seconds into the song it quit.  I have unplugged it and plugged it in again and no results but "NO DICS" blinking on the screen.  This is very frustrating!  I blew it out with canned air but it keeps acting as if it isn't detecting a cd.  PLEASE HELP Lance Philyaw

Re: hello

I just wanted to update.. I was able to fix the unit by taking it apart, cleaning the inside well with canned air, and then putting a couple of drops of machine oil into the motor itself.  Its been playing ever since I asked for help this time.. I would encourage others to get a few more years use out of their cd players by this simple trick.

My sharp cd-ba200 will barley play cds

Put the player On for few hours or overnight. Now remove the panel and get access to the optical head unit, use a clean ear bud to polish the optical head. If not the optical head is weak and must be replaced.

My sony MHC-GX250 says relay is it possible that it is causing my system to keep skipping tracks and randomly jumping ??

Mine says that all the time and it doesn't skip like that.. try using some air duster in the back and cd tray.. mine actually quit playing cds at one point.. my friend said it was the "dust cover" or something like that by the eye..

So when I turn on my sony MHC-GX8800 shelf system, it stays on for a few seconds and then turns off. The power button flashes red as well

I had a extremely similar problem with that model the only difference is that it used to turn off whenever I put the volume up. Anyway there was a peace of stranded wire behind the speakers terminal block connector, so be sure to check it out.

Any experts out there?

Can air can put a film or sometimes dust on the laser. It will need cleaning by hand with soft cloth and alcohol.
