Question about Sony CFD-G500 Radio/Cassette/CD Boombox

1 Answer

No sound We had a power surge during a storm. Two radios both Sony now have no sound. I believe the 110 jumped to 220. I really like my Sony CFD-G500. The thing lights up and the cd spins. The tuner scans for stations but there is no sound. Should I bother to fix this or toss it in the trash? Thanks Robert in Brazil.

    I took the boombox to a repairman. He swapped out the input chips that go to the speakers. The chips had fried with the power surge. It took him about five minutes to remove and install the new chips from the motherboard. Net charge was 45 dollars.

All the program buttons on my Astoria SAE2 were flickering at once. I turned the machine off and on again and it was gone but am wondering why it was flashing.


if the machine runs on 220, then it will do that with a power surge, because sometimes, when there is a surge, it drops to 110 power it is enough to do this, if it is wire and on 110 power, could be a programing issue that is triggered from a power surge. Most likely it was a power surge, that is common, especially if it is 220 power, machine will run if only 110, power, but wont operated fully for the proper steam, boiler temps etc, if does not have enough amp, just enough to flicker. Hope this info helps. Thanks Mr Bean Man from fixya

DENON AVR 2308 no longer works only after 3 weeks of purchase!!!


You need to get more details. What component has failed that makes them believe that a surge caused the problem. There is usually a thermal fuse inside of the main power transformer that CAN be effected by power surges. WIthout more details, I really can't rpovide any ammunition for your claim. Please request exact details from the servicer.

Thanks,
Dan

Theirs no reason why you cannot plug in the 110 adapter to the 110 wall plug to power the radio.
You may also want to add a surge protector inline.

Shorted out during a storm; fuses fine; trying to determine problem


Hi

Hoping you could give me a bit more information regarding your amp. Had any of the fuses blown? Just wondering what you mean by the amp is shorted out. Does it blow fuses or is it tripping an earth leakage circuit breaker?

Awaiting your advice
