Question about Sony CFD8 Boombox
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?
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
