Question about Sony Audio Players & Recorders

Open Question

We have a Sony VAC5 system. When we try to play a tape or CD it plays for 3 seconds then reverts to standby. In order to get it off standby we have to unplug it and replug it in. Is there something we can do?

SOURCE: system keeps sayin protect

The word PROTECT appears because there is a short. It can be in your speakers, try running it without the speakers plugged, or look if the wires arent shorting. If it stil ldoes that, its cause there is a short in it, from the output section. The system does that to prevent from damaging the electronic components inside.

SOURCE: CD player fails to read CDs

Hi Everyone !
We got the same problem two month ago and we fix it. The problem is drying lubricate oil from elector motor which spin the cd disk. You need to open top cover its 5 screw , 4 an sides and 1 on back. Then you see black cd changer in side. You need to open top cover of cd changer by unlock plastic clips and slide cover. Under cd holder you can fined elector motor that spin cd. You just need two drops of lubricate oil on top bearing at electromotor. My works fine right now .
Good luck.

SOURCE: Help - CD won't eject! I press 'Open' on my sony

I have the same problem and it's due to dirt!
I'm going to try using compressed air, but -
this definitely works:

:) Seriously:

tilt the cd player to a 45 degree angle (flat, basically - as if they tray were horizontal.)

I had my player for 10 or 12 years, and this problem is only coming up now. My house gets very dusty.

Also - vertical load disc players are hard to clean. X_X (inside the disc tray)

I love this stereo too!
I don't want to have to go out and buy another stereo!

Hi,
You can try to do a system recovery on your PS3. this will set your PS3 back to factory settings as the settings may have been changed during the use. Here is the process in which you can do a system recovery.'

PS3 Recovery Menu


  1. Place the PS3 in standby mode
  2. Press and hold the power button for a couple of seconds, you should hear a beep
  3. Keep a hold of the power button for a couple more seconds, the PS3 should shut back down to standby mode
  4. Once this happens, press and hold the power button again for a couple of seconds, waiting for 1 single beep.
  5. Ignore this beep and keep it pressed until you hear 2 consecutive beeps, release the button.
I think you choose option 3 and then repeat and choose option 4. Once you are done with this, try out your PS3.

The tape plays songs so fast sounds like donald duck. The speed the tape is feeding is to fast.


Hi, the casette deck has a mechanical system (servo-driver) most of the problems that happen when in your case, plays song so fast is that you look at the pinch roller. The pinch roller is a rubberized free spinning wheel typically used to press magnetic tape against a capstan shaft in order to create friction necessary to drive the tape along the magnetic heads with a normal tape speed if the pinch roller brakes, get lost from his place or got dirty then you get this fast sounds play, check the pinch roller if still good in his place or clean his rubber with alcohol, then the problem should be fixed.

My Sony Bravia will play for less than a minute and then reverts to standy. Any suggestions?


Please unplug tv from wall socket for minute or so,, replug back in and turn it On.
If tv still goes to standby itself than its standby light would blink to show an error in somewhere inside tv circuits.
Let me know how many times standby red light blinking? There would be 3 seconds long pause in blinking so count pause to pause to determine problem section.
Thanks.

CD is not playing on my SONY Home Audio CMT-EH15


HI. that grinding sound is signaling a lens assembly issue. the linkage and gear assembly seems to be jammed. this assembly must be able to move freely i order for the lens to track the CD. if the lens assembly is stripped or jammed, it will not be able to read and it will shutdown into stand by mode to prevent the motor from damaging itself. its most likely gear failure.

Unfortunately, the repair parts for this unit are only available from sony repair depots and, you will need to contact sony manufacturing in order to receive a repair ticket.

I have two different music systems, need answers for if possible,


On the no disc messages, try a cd or dvd lens cleaner which ever is appropriate for the device and also try blowing canned air inside, it can be a dirty lens.
