Question about Sony MHC-GX470 Shelf System

Open Question

Sony HCD-GX470...click sound, cd skips repeatedly...

I have a Sony HCD-GX470 3-disk shelf system..
When I play a CD, I will hear a click sound after a few seconds of play, which continues and it will make my CD skip repeatedly...

I'm beginning to think these mini CD players are a waste of money because they quit functioning properly after less than a year...I really don't wanna have to buy another one, so I'd appreciate a solution to my problem. Thanks

SOURCE: I have a Sony MHC

I think grooves are dirty / clogged in sled section of lens mechanism. There is flexible wire between lens and circuit board and this should also be checked as it can be cracked or misaligned.
Below is exploded view of lens in MHC-GX470 and marked area to be checked or cleaned.

SOURCE: cd's skip

all the rca's have been released without quality control... you will have to open and adjust the potentiometers (the adjustible resistors on the main board) to re-calibrate the laser timings. However the way that the boards are mounted inside the boombox's chassis you will need to take apart everything to be able to reach the main board (inside vertical right side board with large heatsink and fan) without causing a short (as to be able to properly adjust these you need to have a cd playing and the whole thing needs to be upright.
I would recommend throwing it all way, not worth the time if you don't have the patience.

I have a sony HCD-gx470 stereo an it will not go to the next song by itself how can i fix this


hi, if you are reffering to the cd player section, then check the program or repeat feature. make sure that none of these features are enabled. if this does not help then activate the "master reset" procedure in your user manual. lastly check beneath your unit for any transport locks/screws applied to the cd mechanism. cheers.

My CDs wont play. I click CD & i want to listen to my CDS in CD1 CD2 & CD3 but they wont play.They say "No Disc".


You could either try getting a linse cleaner for your Sterio. Or take it apart and Clean it, There might be alot of dust and dirt inside so it makes it hard for the laser to read the disks.

I have a Sony MHC-GX470 stereo...it will not play cd's...when you load a cd in it comes up with "mecha error"...the cd changer will not move between cd 1, cd2 and cd3 either.


the mechanism is bad or in human terms the motor that excepts and moves the disc has gone out i reccomend taking it to a repair shop to get a estimate because it may jus be cheaper to replace it.

I have a Sony MHC GX470. It has been working great since I've had and the sound quality is awesome but since 2 days ago the cd player keeps skipping and it'll restart the song and skip again or it freezes....

CD SKIPS


well it depends on how you feel about opening your system. have you tried a cleaning cd? if not, then do that. If not, and u want to open it, then get some electronic cleaner spray (not sure how its called) and blow the laser clean. There are some resistors you can adjust, but thats getting very trick.

good luck
