Question about Sony CDP-CA80ES 5-Disc CD Changer

1 Answer

Sound from only one channel

I have a ES series Sony 5-disc CD player. Sound comes out only from the right side speakers. I've switched the speakers cables, plugged in other devices to the recievers CD in connections and narrowed the problem to the CD player itself.

Any suggestions for a quick fix?

Re: sound from only one channel

If there is a headphone output on the unit try listening through it to see if the sound is in both channels. If so,it is likely a dry / fractured solder joint on or near the jack connector. If not it could point to a failure of the digital -> analogue convertor IC chip.

Static sound from one channel after playing for a while--time it starts varies.

You don't say what a 1055 is and it is hard to know what you are asking with a lack of ID on the equipment at fault. Sounds like a source selection problem maybe a switch or if electronics a CD4066 IC.

Check your RCA cables to make sure that they are not dirty, tarnished or not completely plugged in. Also, try switching to different (working!) RCA cables to see if that fixes the noise problem. Good luck!

Static sound

Try a CD cleaning kit and follow instructions if this fails it is more cost effective to replace the CD changer than have it repaired.

Rowe r92 sound problem

Moving the wire indicates the speakers are OK. Try reversing the 3 pin plug from the cartridge. If the problem stays on the same channel, it is probably a preamp board issue. If the problem switches channels, you have a bad wire to the cartridge or a bad cartridge.

Im not geting any sound out of the left side. Its not the speakers or receiver. I ve changed all the wire testing it. It is the left side of the cd player.

the channels burn out its a common fault the quick fix is to buy a rca adaptor to run 1 output to 2 or replace the cd player it will cost a lot less to replace than fix

You won't get any sound unless you connect your CD player to an appropriate input on your amplifier (any but phono or tape/md) and connect your speakers to this amp.

Shout if you need more help.
