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

My cassette deck wont work,can i cut the feed to the cassette deck and do away with it,thanks


Yes it is possible to do away with the player but disabling the power would be enough in some cases but in some the main processor will need a feedback to confirm before the whole set is activated.

I have a Sony Compact Disc Receiver, Model HCD-VA550. The audio cassettes and tuner work. The CD flashes "Initial", and the CD door won't open and our new CDs (5) are stuck in there. I note a few others...


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.

I have a Harman Kardon CDR 30 that I use to burn my analog Vinyl and cassettes to CD. I have done this successfully for years. I recently got a reel to reel deck and unhooked all the components and moved...


do you remember how your connection was before the RR tape deck? if so connect it back that same exact (when every thing was recording / playing) way as before....(you also need to purchase 4 gold tip "y" connector jacks (2 RCA female to 1 RCA male)) ... in / out jacks you just plug the cassette deck will be shared with the RR tape deck...just note you will not be able to record from cassette to RR tape or vice versa...but you will be record from all other sources...
