Question about Sony Xplod CD Player w/MP3 Playback CDX-GT50W

1 Answer

CDX-GT50W hardly plays burnt cds, and wont play most others

OK, my girlfriend bought me this for christmas '07, and I hooked it up with no problems as usual. It worked fine for 6-7 months, then started making some kind of noise somewhat like fishing line being pulled from a locked reel. Kind of a sickening noise , in short intervals. It sounds like it is trying to read the cd, but then also sounds like it's not spinning it very well. I guess it kind of sounds like maybe a rubber wheel trying to spin the cd or something, but not getting full grip, and vibrating it.
Anyways, that's a new cd. I've put a a few cd's in that I didn't know were even going to play they were so scratched, and it played those fine. I don't know , it also doesn't specify what fromat is being played. I thought my manual said it did. She paid $150 for it, and I am trying to decide whether this will be an easy, cheap fix, or if I should start looking for a a new stereo.
Any help would be appreciated, thanks for your time, tim

Make sure that you have the antenna plugged in and if you have a power antenna make sure that you hook up the solid blue antenna wire behind on the radio harness to the power antenna wire from the car plug.

Troubleshooting in car cd player

that is very strange but it could be that when you put the cd in the radio it maybe sending out a quick shot of amplified power I would try disconecting the subs put in a cd let it play a little then plug the subs in while the cd is playing and see if they work if this works you may to get a new radio or put in a switch to turn the subs off or some type of momentary circuit breaker I'm just trying to help I never saw anything like that before good luck........

I am having problems with my cd player

I am unable to understand your problem clearly. Does it play 2 CDs and then stops reading the CDs or does it play only 2 specific Cds?
If it plays some Cds and not others, then it is possible that the lens has to be replaced. But before that, try cleaning the lens.
Use a good quality CD lens Cleaner CD.
