Question about Sony LBT-LX50 CD Shelf System

Open Question

1994 Sony MHC-C33 Mini Hifi bookshelf stereo system

My 5 Disk CD player portion of the system ( linear skating 5 tray mechanism) has suddenly stopped working. When the system is turned on instead of hearing the "norma;" sounds od the CD deck cycling through, it starts , and then you hear an abrupt stop. The disk door does open manually, but inside nothing is obviously wrong from what the naked eye can see. None of the buttons to play or eject any CD system operate. The radio, and cassette portions of the system work fine. Any ideas?

    I have the same problem. Took it apart not knowing what to look for, but found a drive belt (a skinny/thin black rubber band to be more precise) off the nylon pulley gears. Put it back on and reassembled. It still does not work. Radio works and I think the tape deck does also. When I turn on to cd function, all I get is a scrolling "initializing" message. I also get the same message when the system is plugged in but not turned on. Help, any body (including you, Sony).

Bad DVD player ( Karaoke )

Th fault is on your disk tray mostly. Just try to switch off your player once and then restart it again. If that doesn't work then try to open the screws in the DVD player only the disc portion and try to check whether there is a damage on the disk tray.

A disk is stuck in my Harmon Kardon player. The door will open and close and I can see the disk but cant' get it out.

turn on the unit and then tried to press the play button while the cd tray is in place. if doesn't work, unplug the dvd player then open the cover to access the internal part. look for a broken limit switch for cd tray mechanical assembly or check weather the cd not in proper place in the tray that is why an error occur.

My NAD C251i CD player isn't reading disks - platform stops short

To fix it, you need to replace the spindle motor top bearing. The bearing is worn and the player mistracks as the armature moves about under the changing drive conditions. Makes the player mistrack and skip. Because the disc is spinning fast.

Replacing the bearing should resolves the problem.

Hope this helps and have a great day!

5 disk CD player stopped working, won't engage, no longer hear it engage mechanically. How do I open manually to get CD's out?

This eventually tends to happen with most players in their time. The motors or laser circuits tend to wear out. You will have to manually pull open the dvd tray to get cd's out.

The tray of cds does not work properly, does not allow the change of disc to disc and stuck

Try pressing repeatedly the eject button while you turn on the unit. If this doesnot work
then it is a mechanically problem in your player .

You need to manually open to take out the cd .

The rubber thread which should be connected to the motor inside the cd player might have moved from its place.

You need to place the rubber thread to proper place.

Also if the belt is slipping, the mech never gets the "drawer closed" signal, and the disk will not spin.

Magnavox ZV450MW8A will not release disk

Unfortunately you'll have to remove the upper case and take a look. Sometimes you can see a gear that pushes the tray out. If you can turn this gear, the tray should operate. Sometimes you have to remove the upper portion of the drive mechanism. Remove it and remove the DVD, reinstall the top portion of the drive and reinstall the tope case.
