Question about Sony CDP-C365 5-Disc CD Changer

1 Answer

I have a Sony 5 disc cd player (CDP C365) which is about 15 years old. I've cleaned the lens, lubricated the rail of laser, but the problem appears to be with the motor that spins the disc. Sometimes the motor does not appear to be strong enough to spin the disc. If you help it get started, by spinning the disc with your finger while the motor is first engaging, it will play the disc and often several in the 5 disc changer. At some point, the motor will not start when a new disc is rotated into position. You can hear the motor trying to start, but it will not restart until help it along by spinning the disc by hand when the motor first starts. Any solutions?

Take the small back cover off and take some electrical grade contact cleaner and spray all around the lens area, that worked for me.

Hi,
I'm Sony tech and can help you to fix this cd player.
CDP-C365 is 1994 cd player, mostly loading belt got cut/ broken in 16 years service, take off top cover and inspect loading belt, replace it if found cut/ broken.
Next possibility is loading mechanism got misaligned for any worn out gear that needs visual check, let me know if you need part number info about broken parts.
Thanks.

Put in clean commercial disc and get error msg "no disc" period!


Dr. OM,

Lets give it a try. The purchasedate will be 1991 (HI).
I'll suppose you allready cleaned the laserunit.
You can try to clean the laserslides, sometimes they are sticky and dry. Then the laser is not fast and precise enough to read the index of your CD.
Clean them with some alcohol on cottontips.
When they are really clean, use just a little teflonoil to make sure the laserunit slides very smoothly.

Regards,
73's Gerard

Cds dont load and tracks will skip during song play


It is clear symptoms of bad optical laser or dirty optical lens.
Please put lens cleaning CD in player, play that CD to clean dust on optical lens surface. If that helps, fine or replace optical laser block in player.
I can provide you optical lens part number, please confirm is it Sony CDP-CX153 cd player or any other model.
Thanks.

New jazz cd not reconized by player . It says no disk present .


Your laser lens is probably dirty, try a laser lens cleaner if that doesn't work, unplug the unit and take the outer casing off and manually clean the laser with some alcohol and a dry cotton cloth, would also be a good time( see that you have it apart already) to lubricate the moving components with some Vaseline.
Hope this helps with your problem.

Sony CDP-C225 will not read or play cd's


Try running a "Laser Lens Cleaner" thru it, preferrably one that uses fluid. You can purchase one at just about any retail store for 15-20. Good to have and great preventative maintanance. If that does not work, you need a new transport, they do not repair or align lasers. Too expensive. The replacement is 100-150 with labor and a new one is under 200. My suggestion would be if the cleaner does not work replace it and keep the new one clean. CD/DVD/PC etc. all can and should be cleaned 3 or 4 times a year. Best preventative maintanance you can do. Hope this helps

Laser might not be faulty but just a dirty lens/ rail assembly.
If thou darest open the thing, clean the lens ( GENTLY) with a swab of glass lens cleaner. Clean the chrome runners for the optics assby with a swab lcaed with WD40 or silicone.
