    I've had the same problem with two different Kenwood CD players. The CD do not play all the way through. Each CD whether new or old will skip and sometimes it will stop playing all together. I am beginning to think the product is no good, since I replaced the CD changer and I now have the same problem

I also agree with this answer. It's not hard to resolder the connections. this is a common problem with output jacks. the solder dries up over time and making it brittle and working its way loose. try resoldering the connections and all should be well.

I have a 51 sony cd ..what else do I need?


Yes, Sandra, you need to plug this CD player into a tuner. Almost any tuner will work. Using a red & white audio cord (and any cords with similar plugs), connect the Line Out from the CD player to the Line In on the tuner. Depending on the tuner, you may have Line In inputs for CD player, AUX, and possibly others. Any of them should work.

If you don't have a manual for the player, you can download one from the Sony support web site at :

I want to connect my tv to my stereo for sound but it is not working in aux mode can this be done


Your TV must have a sound output, preferable an RCA type output jacks, these are connected to aux or line inputs of your audio amplifier, in some TV sets, you must deactivate speakers at menu to have audio at these outputs, please check your TV user guide for more details.

Need hookup instructions (sound)


I can't find a manual for that particular model but there's not a wgole lot of variation among CD players. The back will probably have 1 or more of the following:

analog RCA stereo pair Line Out
digital coaxial output
digital optical output

Standard stuff.

For digital audio conenct the appropriate digital output to a compatible digital input on a receiver or other digital audio device.

The Line Out is vanilla analog audio. Conenct it to any Line Level input except PHONO.

When a disc is playing, the music just stops and comes back on in a few secons. I thought it was my speakers, but I bought new ones and it still happens.


i just repaired one last week that had bad connections where you plug the rca plugs -red-and white into the unit ,, jiggle those plugs and see if that is the problem if so they will need to be soldered

My receiver says its analog input on the display ,,,is this a digital or analog changer yamaha cdc 565


All CD players are digital. Most (including your Yamaha changer) use a digital-to-analog converter to send audio to your receiver.

If you are like most people, the CD player is hooked up with red-and-white audio cables. This is an analog type of connection, and should still sound great.

I HAVE A MULTI-DISC CD PLAYER WITH FUZZY SOUND


Digital or analog output? Try the other - same thing? If it improves by switching outputs, suspect teh cable. Also try moving the output to another input on the receiver (?).

Connecting to speakers


There is no built-in amplifier on your cd-player so you cannot connect speakers directly to the CD player unless they are self-powered(like the speakers for a computer) so you will need to connect the red and white rca jacks to the television's audio input jacks, an external stereo reciever, or self-powered speakers to get sound from the cd player.

Sony CDP-CX455


This is a player only that requires a receiver or pre-amp/amp combination to drive speakers. The output from this unit is what is called "line level" and can be connected to any CD/DVD/VCR or TAPE input on a receiver.

How do I hook it to The tv


you may have an "intelligent" tv that only turns audio on when video is also present. if your tv is older, then go thru the menu options and look for option that turns back panel inputs to "on"...or it may be as simple as finding that option on the remote control.
