Have a 1990 era Kenwooed KA -127 that has always worked perfectly, however I just changed out CD players (Sony 5 disc changer that died w/ new CD P-CX355 300 disc changer, also removed taped deck , reconnected all system connections, but KA-127 is "dead" however it is getting power as red light is on in volume changer. no other readout /lights. Also, checked w/ headphones to see if unit was workingw/out readout and nothing. Did it just die from old age coincidenttally because i changed connection for first time in probably a few years?

I would first look for poor solder connections. It is possible that with the moving of the unit, a marginal connection finally broke. This is not unusual for a unit that is 20 years old. Check with a local repair shop for the labor costs, but this unit is definately worth a $100-$150 investment. If you;d like, post your location here and we'll try to provide you with some referrals.

    I appreciate the input, but as a non-electronics dude, am I correct in assuming you're talking about internal solder connections (that I probably wouldn't recognize unless it was something very obvious.) It seems like you're suggesting I remove the housing and inspect but not sure I'm comfortable with that either... So , is bottom line that this does not sound like a problem I can "fix" by resetting/reconnecting etc, but needs to be evalauted by an electronics shop? Thanks.

    You are correct, this is not a problem that can be fixed by any reset. There is a problem inside the unit that will require examination and repair.

Sony 5 disc cd player won't play 5 cds but plays just 1 disc


Check the mode of operation. There can be a setting where it just plays one disc. Random or mixed will give you more songs to get to other discs.

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.

Sony 5 changer dvd player won't work. displayed code 31


Hi:
This may be caused by one or two causes. The laser pickup assembly is bad or the most common failure for DVD and CD players is the spindle motor. This motors bushings fails over time and does not spin the disc at the right speed so the unit times out. You can repair the by purchasing what sony calles the Mech Assembly it comes with new laser and stepper motor as well as the Spindle motor.

Chevy Equinox 5 disc cd changer. Car battery died which cycled cd changer several times. Now it just gives cd error message and I cant get the lone cd out and I cannot load a cd.


I had the same problem with my 2007 Equinox, 6 cd changer. I changed the oil, disconnected the battery as recommended. When I reconnected the battery, the single cd wouldn't come out. It was out of warranty so I ordered a complete new cd player from ebay, I installed it, spent the $120 for the dealer to unlock it, just to find out....It won't let me load any cd's. Every time I hit load, it appears as if it is gonna load, but the motor inside never activates. Let me know if you find the solution to your problem.

My car battery died.when i put in a new my cd player stop working


If your radio is still working, then your power is OK. The Sony CD changer gets its power from the Sony Unilink cable. It is possible that it passed a power spike down to your CD player while hooking up your battery cables.

I just had a CDX-757MX just die a few days ago myself. My radio, amps, and other changers are still working. Could be an unfortunate coincidence.
