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.

Sony CDP-C910 will no longer play cds or eject changer cartridge


Mine did the same thing. My player was primarily used in the garage and the cold weather may have caused my player to do the same thing. I just fixed my player. I removed the top cover and looked at the CD in the play position. In the upper right corner from the CD, you will see a spindle motor with a belt on it. Gently spin the motor back and forth carefully with your finger. I rotated it a half-spin in either direction, careful not to dislodge the belt. When I turned the player back on, the mechanism operated as it normally would and began playing the disc. I was able to eject and reinsert the magazine without any issues, solving the problem. Hopefully that will work for you.

Spin both directions theb display show table error


Usually CD rotates in the clockwise direction. Whenever you are using CD which your CD player cannot detect then CD is rejected and suddenly CD rotates in anticlockwise direction.
Also, If your player is older and your CD players laser head worn out then CD's which were played good previously cannot be played properly and then stop in middle, when this happens you can see CD rotating in anti direction.

Clean the laser head, with CD cleaner and do not use scratched CD's

Do you know if the Sony CDP-C215 can play MP3 format?


No ... This is a 1st generation multi-disk player and, although it's a great, reliable, unit, it does not recognize MP3 or WMA files. You can play BURNed (automatically copied as CDI files) or RIPped copies (converted to WAV files only). The files are much larger ... but more detailed and accurate than compressed formats.

Disc(s) jammed in sony 5-disc player--eject won't work


There are 6 or 7 phillips head screws that keep the top on; remove them and pop the top. This will give you access to all CD's. Remove them all, then plug the unit back in and press the open close button and check for normal operation. If it still wont open, it's broken a gear and needs to be serviced. You may consider replacement of the unit if inoperative, the replacement model is priced at $129.00 and a repair would probably cost the same if not more. If you need further help, post a comment and I can help you further.
