Sony CDP-XA30ES CD Player

I have a Sony CDP-XA30ES CD Player and it does not read the cd's anymore. What can I do and where can I find parts. Based in the UK.

    I recently experienced similar issues. The CD stops rotating in the middel of a CD and the index disappears from the display. I tried to clean it with alcohol, but this doesn't seem to help.

    Sometimes after opening, removing, replacing and closing again, the same CD will one of a suddent play just fine.



    Anyone any idea?



    Thanks,

    JM



    PS - I cannot find the KSS-... part. This might have to do with the fact that this is a CD player with a 'Fixed pick-up mechanism'. In other words, the CD moves and the laser stands still. Possible?

Try opening up the top and cleaning the lens using a cotton swab and alcohol. If that does not resolve the problem, look at the back side of the optics and there should be a marking like KSS-xxx. This is the generic part designation. Any electronics supplier that supports Sony should have these.

I have an old Sony CD player (CDP-M47) - its probably about 20 years old (or so). The cd drawer has started sticking but with assistance if I can get a CD in it plays o.k. Is it fixable?


do you have to push it slightly for the drawer to go in?

if so then aply some wd40 or other lubricant to any gears or theeth on the drawer

and wd40 works fine with electronics

Do you have any idea what the value is for a Sony CDP-CE525?


Your best bet is to see what they are going for on Ebay.  Being as most people dont use stand alone cdplayers anymore I wouldnt expect that you would make more than $15 off of it.

My guess is yes. The easiest way to find out, is to take a burnt CD, and stick it in there. If it doesn't come up reading error, or doesn't remain silent, then it plays them. Let me know what happens.
