The laser is eithr dirty or damaged.
Open the lid and look at the laser eye. Take a q-tip and some rubbing alcohol and gently swab the lens, then IMMEDIATLY blow dry with some canned air. If this does not fix it, the laser needs replaced. It is probably a KSS-213 (you can usually peek in the hole that the lens slides along to see), which is widely available on the internet for around $15. Changing it is best left to a service shop.

How do i repair the cd player on the cfds 01 player


Rhe repair work depends on the dianosis. Sometimes you simply can't det parts for old CD players.
So, if you know about CD repair, start by dismounting your playes and then you'll know how to repair it.

Does not detect CD in drive of Sony CFD-S28.


do you have it apart enough to view the CD transport mechanism ? if i so is the CD spinning up ?
over time the laser brightness diminishes and is not eluminating the cd proporly, there is a brightnes controll on the laser assembly, this can be ajuusted to a small degree to restore oporation, mark the original position of the control, the controll is located on a small pcboard where the plug enters the laseser asembely, turn the controll clockwise only about 5 to 10 percent, now atempt to read a good known cd, if it reads, leave it, if not turn the controll counter clock by 5 to 10 persent of the original poition, now try the cd again, if it works leave it, if not the laser may be defective and needs replacing, all this is asuming that the lense is cleen so prior to ajustment cleen the lense, also insure the lense is in place, some lenses have fallen off in my past experiances, and may be rateling around inside the unit, don`t lose it, you can very carefully glue it back in place using crazy glue, the assembely is quite easy to replace, you will see when you have it apart, if you can find a new one for a reasonable price this may be an option for you, one other thing, observer the carage, note if it seems to slide tho the center and then position itself a small portion away from the center this happens only when the unit is trying to read a CD , if so good, if not this may be due to a defective home switch used to position the laser over the appropriate track to read the directory of the CD, you can see the switch, and can be easily replaced, you will know how when you see it, that's what i know so now you know, good luck

The CD player is no longer working. Not sensing it.


buy a cleaning disk, or get a micro fiber cloth, and take the stereo apart and find the laser lens, near the motor that spins the cd, it will be pretty small, gently wipe it clean in one direction, if that doesnt work, the laser has quit working.

My Sony CFD SO1 keeps skipping/display light keeps flashing


That is an electronic problem. Probably a just-about-to-break cable in the motor of the CD drive, that sometimes causes a short and turns off the unit, or sometimes makes it to comport erratically and produce the buzzy sound. If you have electronics knowledge, then you may open and check the wiring harnesses. If don't, take it to your local electronics repair.

Sony CFD-G500 cd player


There is an inherent problem with this unit that is not the reader. I noticed that the red light which comes on when the super base is activated will sometimes flash while the unit is first trying to read the CD. It seems to be in sync with the disc spinning motor of the CD player. I have repaired a couple of these by checking and resoldering poor quality solder joints on the CD sub board and a few on the main circuit board. But this has not repaired all of them. Sony need to look into this.
