Question about Sony CFD8 Boombox

1 Answer

CD Player stops in middle of songs

I have had this CFD-8 Cassette CD boombox for 13 years and never had a problem till recently. The CD player often stops a few seconds after a song starts and the track counter goes back to 00. There is no vibration that causes this. Any help?

    GFM cd player (holds 5 CDs) stops in middle of first track and displays following error code: Er. I've dusted the cd holder, checked for loose wires, and unplugged the player to let it "rest." Nothing has helped. Any ideas? It was inexpensive (I bought it at Meijer) but worked so well for 2+ years that I hate to get rid of it. Thanks.

Sounds like the stop button is getting a crossover signal

the CD player ALWAYS has vibration... (impossible to make a perfect balanced spinning mechanism...) and this could allow a slight vibration to affect the machine... age making it more prominent and thus the delay in occurance

but more likely the Capacitor has gone bad (13 years is a very good life for the small charge holders) allowing the voltage to go where it isn't supposed to go

assuming you are a DIY guy then trace the path for the stop button and check the capacitors and resistors in the area

usually a connection is make or break but it could have a signal pull resistor with a capacitor to stop direct current.. if so, that is the first capacitor to check... also good news in this case... the capacitor that fits with a pull up/down switch isn't very critical in it's specs so a close match should be fine

My sony boom box --the CD player occasionally stops for a few seconds ( music stops) and then restarts. I cleaned the head with a special CD cleaning system but that didn't help. How much do you think it...


hello im a tech at a sony svc center and should the laser be weak and not just dusty a repair would be impractical as our labor is 90$ before the part cost.. from the picture it looks like a top loader in which case you could manually clean the laser with a simple q-tip---gently in a circle clean the lens dry q-tip no liquid .. also does it fail with different discs? if only with one that disc might be scratched ,dirty etc..

My boombox is displaying the word "Protect" in the display. ???


The protect message indicates that there is a problem with the final stage of the amplifier section. This unit will require repair as a reset will not clear this. There is an audio amp IC inside that needs to be replaced. Figure on about $15 or so for the part.

How to preset a radio station on Sony CFD-S200 Cassette/CD boombox


You will need to use the Forward and Reverse buttons on the CD player. Set the station by holding the button you want to set it to until it blinks and shows the station number.
To set more that 10 stations. Press the (>10) button and then enter 11 or 12 or so on and set the stations the same as above.
