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.

If it is only 6 months old I would recommend you take it back to where you bought it as it is still under warrenty. If you start playing with it and take it apart the warrenty will be void. But dont tell them about the old trailer house bit, just it stopped working.

No Power


Hey there,

Not sure how much you are familiar with replacing boards or transformers but, if you have never done this before - i would suggest not to. Walmart sells the Durabrand's and yours is currently going for about $20. The thermal fuse itself will probably be around $2-$5 and the transformer probably around if you find it at an electrical store or if you order it online then pay S&H along with the installation time, you pretty much will come out even (unless of course you are an electrician or have some sort of tech background). Also the surge may have also created other issues along with the transformer and you may have to spend additional money. Lightning hit our house and blewout a transistor on my TV board - i knew I could replace it, but instead went out and bought a new one thinking I may have additional issues. I bought the new one and being spiteful decided to fix my TV - I was right I would have ended up paying almost $400, so I tossed it. If you are "hell bent" on fixing your radio I would suggest checking out this FAQ before you do anything - I have found it useful before and saved some change at the same:
