Question about Personal CD Players

Jack is broken on portable CD player

A few days ago the power to my portable CD player kept cutting out when I used my AC adapter. It works fine with batteries, but I don't like using batteries when I don't need to. I thought the AC adapter was shot (it's probably nine or ten years old) but I bought a new one today and I'm still having the same problem. The CD player turns off by itself if the plug that goes into the AC/DC jack is moved or turned at all. The CD player itself is only about seven months old. Is it possible to be fixed? If not I may have to actually join the 21st century and spring for an mp3 player, which I really can't afford right now, unless there are any that sell for <$75, which I highly doubt, especially since I'd need at least a 20 gig player with all the music I have. I don't see an area to put my email address, I don't know if I'm just missing it, but if you need it it's mystical_chicken@yahoo.com .

Mystical Chicken, all that needs to be done is to open up your player and re-flow the solder connection where the ac adapter goes. It is a fairly simple task, given you have used a soldering iron before. If not, just send it to me and I'll fix it.

I think you must have a good supply of current for the player and maybe you must try with rechargeable batteries. If this wont work the set has a fault in the power supply input regulator wherein the regulator must have a fault.You will need to remove the covers and use a multimeter- if you are familiar- to confirm this regulator. replace and proceed. Good day

I need an adapter cord for AC power


You will get to buy the ac adapter cord from any electronic spare parts shop. Please ask for the sony cord which is usually one with a ridge on either side of the plug in. It made by many manufacturers and may not be difficult to get.

if the settings are too far off it can hurt the unit, if they are close, it should work (say 6v and300mah or 400mah), if you take it to a RadioShack (not sure where you are) or electronics place they should be able to get you what you need. Please give a fixya if this helps or helps solve

Battery compartment disconected by the AC adapter


That could be any number of things. Broken solder joint on the board where the battery terminals connect, dead batteries, and now that I think about it, if the connection is broken or loose in any way inside the hole where the ac adapter goes, it's not going to work with batteries. It needs that completed circuit regardless if there isn't an ac adapter inserted.
