Sony receiver will not recognize cd player

I have a 7 yr old sony ten disk cd changer and a sony reciever. Last weekend the receiver stopped recognizing the CD changer. The reciever cycles thourgh the radio bands, but the source button can not change to the CD function. The fuse is good, there is plenty of power to the set.

The cd changer is locked. Do you think it is corrosion on the cable connectors? They are so small I can not see , how can I clean up any oxidation?

IT IS NOT A PROBLEM AT ALL, MOST CARS NOWADAYS DON'T HAVE SHORTWAVE ANTENNAS, THEY OFTEN COME WITH ANTENNAS SUITABLE FOR FM STATIONS SO WHEN SW DXers LIKE US HAVE CD PLAYERS IN OUR CARS WE SHOULD ALWAYS HAVE IN MIND THAT ANTENNAS MUST BE CHANGED, HERE IS THE SOLUTION.. GO TO A RADIO SHACK OR EBAY AND GET ONE OF THOSE HIGH SW ANTENNAS AND YOU ARE READY TO GO.
HOPE IT HELPS

I had the same problem, CD not accepted by unit and pressing source button to select CD player causes unit to display reset.
Using reset button just causes unit to 'whir' for a while, problem is not solved. Firstly with unit switched off, and the ignition off I inserted a CD using some gentle force, I then inserted a second CD, forcing it in over the top of the first. Next I pressed and held the reset button for a short time before releasing it. Both CDs were ejected, when the unit had stopped I took the CDs out, replaced the front panel and turned on the ignition, The unit will now accept CDs and eject them O.K.

(This did take two attempts to get right). Seems to reset the eject status of the CD player.

How many CD disks can it hold


This is a head unit only and it holds only one disk at a time. You can however connect an optional CD changer to the unit which will hold more disks. This multi-CD changer unit must be purchased seperately as it does not come with the basic head unit.

Thanks for using FixYa and please leave a vote for the information.

DOES THIS STEREO RUN A SONY CD DISC CHANGER?


No, it will not run any cd-changer, if the model number has a letter "p" before the number then it will run a Pioneer CD Changer.

CeNet connection to unit is not working


Provided that you're using the same cable you used for the last changer, it sounds like the new changer is defective.

Sony CDX CA720X in my boat


Mac, I had the same problem, it was the hard wired remote at the Stern. When I unplugged it from the radio, everything came back to life and the radio and CD player are working fine. I'll have to replace the other remote at some point.

Hope this works for you...
