You could try purchasing a 3 In 1 universal remote control unit.
These usually scan to find the matched frequency of your appliance, then you can turn on/off with the remote.
These are however limited, and you may not get all of the functions. As with the original remote as supplied.
Alternatively, contact your local supplier, they should be able to assist you further.

I have had the CMT-NE5 system for four years now. Great little stereo. Recently anytime I try to play a disc I get the message "No Disc". I am using compatible disks, and have tried several...

Replace the flat strip wire that connects laser pickup unit to main board. If it does not help you, replace laser pickup unit with same typa and number. OK.

Change input to Aux In without remote CMT-NEZ3 Sony

I have not found a way to select Audio In without the remote (and I've tried every combination of buttons I can think of!)

The approved way to select Audio In is to press the FUNCTION button on the RM-SC30 remote that should have been included with your Sony CMT-NEZ3. See to download your manual.

Check its sled motor. It is the motor that helps to spin the disc inside. If disc do not spin inside, check the voltage at the terminals of this motor. If it is alright, and comes near to 5VDC, the sled motor is damaged and have to be replaced. OK.

Doesn't accept md's

The manual says "C13/Disc Error: The system cannot read the disc information correctly. mEject the MD once, then insert it again."
It seems this error turns up when the system cannot read the disc properly, one reason for which is a dirty/dusty lens. Try a minidisc lens cleaner if you haven't already.

Loose? pad thingie (no disc)

The focussing secion coils inside the laser pickup unit is faulty. There is no repair to this fault, except replace the laser pickup unit with same type and number.

Access MD function without remote

Sony CMT NE3. A solution to access MD/AUX function without remote.
If you accept to lose the function Tuner (or possibly CD but not tape) you could be interested with this method. Personally, I never use that function on this system. The idea is to feed the Aux input into the tuner input of the IC 302 ( a bd 3881). So, you select the tuner and you hear the Aux input. It works quite good (the display shows "FM" but it's not too much annoying...). You can reach of course the bass-treble etc. settings but be aware that it's not so easy: you will have to work with very small resistors SMD (about 1*2 mm) but, fortunately, only to take them away. It's easier.
You need a solder iron for unleaded soldering, a big lens, some classical tools and not to be blind.
You can get the service manual on
But it's not really necessary : the scheme pictures enclosed come from this site. Please, look at them.
Ready? First, take off the rear cabinet (many screws...).
You will have to take off 4 resistors - R116, R117, R216, R217- and set two wires on the main board, located on the left side, under a metallic cover you need to take off (2 big solderings). The PCB is of high quality and the resistors are well indicated. I hope my pictures will help.
Take heart! You will make it easily better than me; my wires are a bit damaged!
Questions : why is it impossible to do the same with tape ? Because the tape input on the IC 302 is not equivalent with the tuner, cd, and aux inputs (there is an extra preamplifier).
Don't pay attention at the IC302 two wires you can see cut on the picture. I thought first it was necessary to isolate the Aux input from the IC. It's not necessary.

Enjoy your new Aux input without remote (and try to forget the tuner...)!

IPod connection

Yes there is. You need to purchase a 1/8 inch jack (standard headphone input) to RCA (red and white) cord, they usually run approx. $20 - $25). Once you have that what you'll need to do is plug the RCA cord into the back of the stereo (corresponding colors, red into the red, white into the white) and set the function to Game (MD). You can do this by pressing the button on your remote or by pressing the function button on the main consul until you see MD on the monitor, press play on your ipod and you're good to go!
