3 CD disc tray of Sony audio system seems stuck

I have a Sony MHC-DX5 Mini Hifi component system. It works perfectly except for a recent problem where especially when I have not played CD's for some time the 3 CD disc tray slides out when I press OPEN/CLOSE but sometimes refuses to go back in. Whether it goes back in or not has been unpredictable. When it does not there is a slight buzzing sound which stops after a few seconds. When it absolutely refuses to go back in I have been able to gently manipulate the tray and push it back in manually . But now since today it completely refuses to come out either !. It sounds very much as if some wheel is stiff needing some lubrication. Can I handle this myself without the tedium of a 4 hour drive taking the machine down to the agents ?

SOURCE: Sony MHC-2800 setting the clock

Hi, it's simple. First press "Timer1" and Timer2" buttons together, clock on display will start blinking, by cursors "Up/Down" you can change the value of hours and minutes (switching between hours/minutes by "Left/Right" cursor). To save set time press "Memory". Enjoy your set clock :)

I have a sony mini hifi component system-mhc 3500 system for 22 years. Just last week, after playing a CD, when I tried to play another CD, it said "no disk". Tried it many times again, still not...


Dirt or dust can get on the lens anytime. It could be brand new and a spec of dust get on and cause it to stop reading discs. You don't have to keep cleaning it unless it lives in a dusty room, or where someone is a heavy smoker. It's a good idea to make certain any discs you put in have a wipe over first.
But you will have to clean it now.

My sony 3 disc ex-change/mini hifi component system mhc-rg66 it keeps flashing...


First things first. The unit doesn't switch on.
- Is it plugged in?
- Is the fuse blown?
- Does it look like it's suffered damage?

It switches on, but won't play anything / the lights come on, but no sound.

- We'll start at connections. Is your MP3 player/ iPod/ CD player/ record deck plugged in correctly?
- Are the speakers plugged in correctly/ at all?
- Is it in protection mode - this is a pretty standard thing now, where the amplifier tries to deliver more than it's rated current (ie, into a short circuit), and it cuts out. The only way to fix this is to take it to a local hifi shop, who will reset it (there's usually a small fee involved). The unit will be fine after that.

------- There is no bass. ----------
A few causes for this, so there's a few solutions.
- The speakers are out of phase. This is where one speaker is wired normally, one is wired in reverse. The bass from each speaker is "opposite" and would cancel out. To solve this, Make sure the + on the speaker is connected to the + on the amplifier. There's usually a stripe on the cable to help you determine this.
Cause # 2
The eq settings on your ipod/ unit have been messed with.
Set all the equiliser settings to flat, then readjust them to taste.
Cause # 3 (nasty one)
You've blown a woofer. The explanation is this - the speakers have taken in too much power, the bass unit has got too hot and the glue holding the coil in place has melted. Usually, the woofer can't be physically pushed when this happens. To solve this, it's new speaker time. An alternative is to see if you can get a recone kit for said speaker, and try to fix the voicecoil yourself. This isn't recommended to those who are new to the idea.

I hope this helps the reader.

My mhc-rg 55 shelf system reports a Mech error when I turn it on (after rotating the CD tray to try to take up each CD twice ) Then is shuts down.... I took the unit apart and saw noting obvious... (Of course it was more difficult to reassemble and still doesn't quite fit properly.) But the problem persists. Looks like it over to the repairer. Sorry - No solution here

How do i open the cd tray on a sony mhc-rg70av shelf system that seems stuck


Most CD trays will open if you shut off equipment and pull gently but firmly to overcome the slight initial resistance. Don't use so much force that it seems likely that the tray mech will break. This calls for a serious bit of taking apart and is best left to the local repair shop.

How can I get the cd changer to stop changing non stop?


Something is out of timing. When powered up, the unit trys to get to a known state and will continue until it reaches that state. If the timing of the gears has been changed, this may not occur.

I'll try to see if I can create a set of instructions to re-time this.

CD player ate a CD!!


I fixed the same issue by forcibly pulling individual trays to their open position.  I removed the casing to gain better access (tons of screws) but you can probably gain clear access to the shelfs without removing the casing if you have good needlenose plyers.  I found a stuck CD within one of shelfs, wedged WITHIN the moving components of the shelf.  It works perfectly now.
