It sounds like your unit has a LOT of broken solder connections and dirty potentiometers. Unless you are VERY good at soldering and want to invest about 1 to 2 hours of time, I would toss it and start fresh.

My sony boom box --the CD player occasionally stops for a few seconds ( music stops) and then restarts. I cleaned the head with a special CD cleaning system but that didn't help. How much do you think it...


hello im a tech at a sony svc center and should the laser be weak and not just dusty a repair would be impractical as our labor is 90$ before the part cost.. from the picture it looks like a top loader in which case you could manually clean the laser with a simple q-tip---gently in a circle clean the lens dry q-tip no liquid .. also does it fail with different discs? if only with one that disc might be scratched ,dirty etc..

No you can not go from the cassette to cd on the unit. You can go from cd to cassette though. The unit is not a cd recorder.

When I press play, my tape player eats the tape.


that means that the uptake wheel is not turning. typically this is caused by a rubber band that is insde the transport mechanism that connects the motor to the wheel.

if you are comfortable taking the device apart, you will need to find the right band and just pop it on.

I need information on how to operate a tape in my machine. I can insert the tape, and push the button to start it playing, but the tape does not play. Which of the 6 buttons will get the tape to play?


My solution was to get my son to e-mail me the list of instructions that I couldn't find with my machine. The instructions, although vague, were very helpful!
