Sony CDP-397 Problems

I have a Sony CDP-397 CD Player - it's older, but plays great, and is a work horse. Recently however, whenever I press the eject button to open the CD carrier, it opens fine but then shuts almost immediately; I can press the button again, and it'll do the same thing, continually - press the button, opens and shuts, and so on.
What could be the problem, and is this a common and simple fix?
Thanks!
Mike

The CD tray is driven by a belt below the tray or on the right hand side (I can't remember the exact model). The belt is probably slipping. Replace the belt and you should be fine. I think you should be able to replace the belt without removing the tray.
I'll look up the model tonight and update this if there are significant differences from what I already stated.

you have to open the unit cover to remove the CD, its probably tried to eject it and its past the point that shows one in the slot which is causing the player to say NO CD , once opened, use great care in moving anything, and keep track of where everything goes,

Sometimes I get no disc error when insert a cd in my sony cdp-ex100 cd player


Put in an ordinary audio CD and play to notice if the CD is detected. If yes the optical is working, if not there is no laser scanning and the possibility that the laser head can be defective.
Now certain cleaner disks will not be tracked to run for cleaning as it is not read. Hence it will reject. So it is ideal to clean manually the laser head eye using a cotton bud with gentle pressure on the lens eye.
If there is no result then watch if the CD spins or tries to spin. If so the board seems to work unless a test is taken on the main board but the possibility of a defective optical head can be the suspected fault.
If any of the above seems otherwise we must recheck with possibilities of a malfunction of the main processor board

How do i program for sony cd player


I also have a Sony CD player (CDP-XE330) and I have tried almost every code from the yamaha manual, but without success.
The only codes that yamaha remote supports, are the codes from the list in the yamaha manual. If none works, you are out of luck and the only solution is using the original sony remote (if you have one) or universal remote.

I have recently purchased Logitech Harmony 525 on eBay and now I control all my 7 devices with it without any issues. It is programmed via USB and Logitech has codes for almost 250.000 devices.
