Question about Sony CDX-GT100 CD Player

Keeps losing power

Hi, my GT-100 lights up and plays for a while, but then keeps momentarily losing power, especially when a button is pressed. this gets more and more frequent. it seems that it must be the connection between the faceplate and the main unit, the connection being lost when its touched, but everything seems in order and its pretty new.

Re: keeps losing power

The faceplate may have a bent pin, or is not fully clicking into place.

Before getting all worked up, try pressing the release button to remove the face plate and carefully inspecting the areas where they click into the main unit, small pieces of debris may be stuck in the clips, if this is not the case, carefully re-insert the face plate, making sure to have aligned the guides before pressing the face plate back into place. You should hear a nice confirming click when the face plate is in place.

Bent pin or contact, can easily be spotted by grabbing a magnifying glass and looking at the allignment of each pin, take extra care when straightening the pin if this is the case.

Most solutions can come from closer inspection ...
ie: with a magnifying glass.
