Sony cd deck receiver HCD VA550

My unit has power and the tuner and cassette work perfectly. My problem is with the CD. When I put it on cd mode it keeps flashing INITIALIZE!
I tried the solution in the manual and unplugged it and replugged it as they suggested. It still will not work in the cd mode. Nothing works on the cd. It is frozen and I can not open any of the cd slots.

Help!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Thank You,
Richard

Sony HCD-GT222 Hi-Fi CD and cassette deck with tuner, suddenly started to shut itself down at volumes higher than 50%, after three years of flawless operation.


It's thermal; protection is happening probably due to bad ventilation. Fuzz and dust can block air vents.These need to be vacuumed out now and then.

The laser pickup assembly has a short causing the unit to shut down, The whole assembly would need to be replaced in order to resolve, not worth the cost to repair, cheaper to replace.

I have the same problem and have worked past it by turning the unit off, waiting until I hear the mechanism stop completely and turning it back on. Sometimes this works the first time and, more often, I have to repeat the process several times. Eventually everything comes up as it should and the unit functions as it was designed. It doesn't work long, and almost always has to be 'rebooted' the next time I want to use it. Except that it is a great unit when it works, I would toss it on the garbage pile and get something else.

Sub doesnt kick on when put cd in only comes on when turn on radi


I had the same problem, but in my case it was a factory amp.

The blue wire on the deck harness is for a power antenna, and only powers up when the tuner is in use, not in the cd or aux mode. Therefore if you are using the blue wire (on the adapter or car side) to power the remote power on your amp, you would need to connect that blue wire (on the adapter or car side) to a keyed power source. This way the keyed source supplies power when the key is on, and will not cut out when the mode is changed from "Tuner" to "CD" or "AUX".

I just connected to the keyed source on my radio harness, but then, I am not running any kind of system, just the basics.

No Subs in CD mode??


Ah, common problem. You hooked up the remote turn on wire for the amp to the power antenna wire (solid blue). Hook up the remote turn on wire for the amp to the blue wire with white stripe. The power antenna only provides power when the deck is in tuner mode for the power antenna to be extended, intuitively, and cuts power in any other mode, because certainly it's only needed for AM/FM reception.
