SOURCE: sony megastorage 300 cd changer

Hi There are many things that can cause your problem, I can tell you the most likely ones, but I recommend you don't take the unit apart, as the mech. in a 300 disk changer is complicated & delicate, and you may just cost yourself alot more money than getting it repaired. The symptoms you sescribe can be caused by failing laser pickup, dirty laser lense (especially if you've done home renvations with drywall), split drive gear that moves the laser on the sled rails, or even a hair or piece of dirt in the gear teeth of that same gear. The unit will play fine, until it hits the tooth where the debris are, then it skips, or jumps back a bit and starts again until it hits the same spot. Also..badly scratched or finger printed disks will cause that, but that is the first thing most people check. I wish it was something you could repair yourself, but my best advise is to take it to a reputable repair shop, and hope it is not a bad laser, as that is a fairly expensive repair. Hope this helps, Good Luck!

SOURCE: NAD C541i CD Player plays but...

hi, i've had a few nad C541i's and not so long since the sound on one of them cut out for milliseconds and on some occasions the sound would make the noise very much like a severely scratched vinyl record, i thought it was a faulty laser so i tried another KSS-213C laser out of a scrap kenwood and the fault persisted. to cut a long story short, i took the main PCB out and there were various dry joints. once these were resoldered i was blessed with a fully functioning player. hope this helps?

SOURCE: MY CD PALYER DOES NOT WORK. ''DISC NOT FINALIZED'' IS DISPLAYED.

If your CD player has been working for many hours and cleaning the lens didn't help, then the next thing to do is changing the spindle motor (the one that spins the disc), since the brushes and the commutator get dirty/oxydized with many hours of performance.

The motor can also be cleaned, but it's kinda complicated and delicate to do it, so you might want to change it instead.

The same holds for the slide motor (the motor that changes the position of the laser pickup).

To clean the motor you need to desolder/remove it and open it up (you need to bend out the clamped parts on the motor housing to release the cover - also, mark the position of the cover so you can put it back in place in the same position as it was prior to opening it - some motors have an indentation so that the cover fits in place in only one position).

Then you need to remove the cover (this is a delicate procedure as you can easily damage the brushes).

You can clean the brushes and the commutator using a long pointed scalpel - gently scrub away the brownish/black residues on both the brushes and the commutator.

Now you need to put the motor back together, taking care not to damage the brushes when you put the cover back in place (kinda tricky but it can be done).

After closing it, see if it runs smoothly, you may want to try and run it on some 3 volts - it must run quite silently, with no more than a gentle humming sound.

If it runs ok, you should use a tiny flat screwdriver and a small hammer to bend the housing edge back onto the cover to fix it in place (basically, you need to rehammer back in the clamps that held the cover in place, this is also a bit tricky and delicate thing to do).

Now reinstall/resolder the motor back in place (motors on some brands/models can be worked without removing them).

Well, i've just told you how i repaired quite some CD drives which were virtually dead, i'm actually still using a yamaha which is more than 15 years old (i myself have been using it for at least 10 years now), i got it as a scrap piece, it returned to life after the above described procedure and it actually works perfectly up to date.

Anyway, i guess the easy way is to simply replace the motors (they need to have the same axis dimensions and mount holes as the original ones, also they need to run on the same voltage - things to keep in mind when you are looking for new motors).

Hope you can get it working...

good luck

SOURCE: cd player not reading discs.

The reader is not recognizing the disc which usually means there is a problem with the circuitry or the "eye" itself. It will probably cost you more to repair this unit then to purchase a new one. Especially since CD players have come way down in price.

if your device is on top of a speaker cabinet with all that this may causing intermittent and more when you turn up the volume, change the speakers elsewhere if still the problem may be the rotation or displacement engines and finally the lasser .

Sony CX355 skipping Fix


I have a Sony 300 disc changer that started randomly skipping tracks after it was 8 or 9 years old.
I tried cleaning it, no change.
I opened it up and found an adjustment screw on the reading lens carriage.
Note: It is very hard to see
It rotates approx 1 turn from stop to stop. It was centered from the factory.
I rotated it counterclockwise 1/2 turn, and it got worse.
I rotated it clockwise 1/2 turn, and it is fixed. It hasn't skipped a beat since.

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.

My Sony CFD-S33 CD player has started only playing 10 min of each CD


Clean the optical pickup lens, by inserting a lens cleaning disc into the player. If it do not help you, repalce the optical pickup unit. Sony sets will have special type optical picku units. You might have to contact the authorised service center for Sony at your town, to get an original one.

Cd player won't work on my CFD-560


Hello
Insert a lens cleaning disc into the system, and play it at least three times, by eject it out and reinsert in each time. If it does not help you, the laser pickup unit of your Cd player should be replaced with same type and number. OK.

I have a sony CFD-S01 which will play commercial cd's but when a cd-r is inserted it either won't recognize the disk or it jumps constantly after appros 10 sec, any ideas?


The CFD-S01 is designed for use with CD-R and CD-RW discs. With that in mind a few things come to mind. Are the CD-R discs you are using music or data discs? There is a difference and some CD players do not get along with data discs and won't play them well if at all. Also the burn rate used can have an effect - too fast and it won't play well. If a disc doesn't play at all it might not be finalized. A disc must be finalized on the recorder it was burned on before it is playable on any other machine.

I have a Sony 626 6 disk CD player / stereo. I have cleaned the disk plaer multiple times, but it continues to skip. It is about 5 years old, is out of warrenty but otherwise works great! Any suggestions...


The board that reads the discs is giong out, it is not readind the discs properly. Repairing it is sometimes more expensive than buying a new one.You did get alot of use out of it, right? You got your monies worth...

My Sony CFD SO1 keeps skipping/display light keeps flashing


That is an electronic problem. Probably a just-about-to-break cable in the motor of the CD drive, that sometimes causes a short and turns off the unit, or sometimes makes it to comport erratically and produce the buzzy sound. If you have electronics knowledge, then you may open and check the wiring harnesses. If don't, take it to your local electronics repair.

Rotary table on Sony CDP-CX225 200 disc changer will not rotate


I think CD Mechanism needs service and might required belts replacement.
You need to get service manual of your CDX-C225 model to do this job as manual contains all technical info about mechanism etc.
