Question about Sony CD Players

Open Question

Sony CDP-C735 CD player powers off on its own and few seconds (or longer) it powers back up; then off; then on. when powers back on it can be for a few seconds or for a few minutes. It always starts back up with the same CD and track. Any hope for a repair?

SOURCE: CD player skips on early tracks

The lens assembly in a CD player glides along on a two rail track, kinda like a railroad track except tubular. The lens carriage is moved over this track by a small motor driving a worm gear. (Think long, tubular and spiral). If the rail tracks or the worm gear dry up or have dust accumulating on them, this could be the cause. Normally they have a light gear oil or lithium grease on them to keep them lubricated.

SOURCE: sony cdp-cx355 cds skip only on tracks 1 through 5

I got a free one of these from my work...well that is because it was having the same problem and they didn't want to mess with it haha. Sooo...I brought it home..thinking i could just buy a cd cleaner kit and clean the dirty lens..which is what normally causes these problems. To my dismay this didn't work (later found that the lens is a good half inch away from the disc)..so i decided to open the bad boy up (hey I got it for free...no harm crackin it open :-) ) After hitting the lens with a can of air..I tried again...no go. And just so you all know...this player runs vertically..not horizontally. I want to know how does the player read? the lens in stationary. All other players i have seen the lens moves up and down. I'm thinking it might have something to do with that. I gave up on cleaning it and started doing some searches..this was the only forum that was somewhat helpful. I agree with Silverscreen. When i watch the cd's playing the disc wobbles SLIGHTLY up and down. I think the rear stand-alone wheel is a bit too loose. ..The amount it wobbles is hardly noticed but is the only thing i see out of the ordinary.

Try opening up the top and cleaning the lens using a cotton swab and alcohol. If that does not resolve the problem, look at the back side of the optics and there should be a marking like KSS-xxx. This is the generic part designation. Any electronics supplier that supports Sony should have these.

this player uses a philips mechanism, spindle motor failure is very common on these mechanisms, yours may be on its way out. take the lid off and insert a cd and if you can hear the laser trying to read the cd without it spinning, it's definately the spindle motor.

Sony CDP-CX450 Cd Player


Hi,

As in most current devices, absence of power (as in shortages/outages) simulates a reset. The reset reverts the unit back to factory defaults which of course does not have user configurations and settings.

A workaround perhaps would be with the use of a UPS as those used in computer systems.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

Sony CDP -CX200 Arm comes forward to pick up cd but goes back empty. It will not load the disc to play.


Is the second part of the arm clamping the cd? If not then the arm is probably broken and needs to be replaced.

Sony cdp cx 355 displaying table error


What worked for me was taking the cover off and carefully threading a belt back onto a wheel. There are two motors at the back of the unit, one (I believe) that grabs the discs and moves them in & out of the player, and a second one that rotates the table (i.e., the round slotted thing that holds all the discs). The belt had simply slipped off the wheel that drives the latter. I did remove the back panel as well, to access it better, and inadvertently disconnected a sensor plug, which led to a second round of troubleshooting, but - in the end - I got it working!
