Defective sony vcd Model MHC-VX33

i have a Sony Video CD player Model MHC-VX33 which i haven't used for quite a while.
whenever i plug it and press the on/off button, all the function buttons' (MD Video, Tape A/B, Tuner, CD) lights blink like crazy. The screen displays the "music menu options" endlessly. Which spare part/s have been damaged and should be replaced? Thanks.

If it havent been use for a long time try dusting it and cleaning it first, sometimes dirt gets stuck on vital places which makes it go crazy. Hope this works. Please dont forget your rating for me as well...We take time in answering problems. Thanks

My best guess is the loading belt (famcy rubber band) to pull the tray out in yours is worn out.

Note you need to replace Sony belts with the exact belt or it will not work. You probably can find your belt on eBay, if not available in North America click international search as the Germans have several places which carry exact replacement belts.

Sony MDS-E10 has been dropped. need schematics to solve problem.

Your service shop would need to purchase the service manual (if available). The problem here is that without seeing the unit, I can;t tell you whether the optics are bad or the tracking head is bad or the loading mechanism is defective. None of those options are cheap. Let me look into this a bit and see what I can find. I will try to get you part numbers at least with costs.
