Question about Sony CFD G505 Boombox

1 Answer

My Sony CFD G505 sometimes pauses for a few seconds while playing CDs in a room for a group of line dancers. It doesn't do that at home. There is usually a band present, setting up instruments. I tried setting up on the opposite side of the room from the band, but that didn't work. Could this be some type of interference, and, if so, is there a way to prevent it.

    This is a fairly new instrument that has been cleaned regularly. The problem has not occurred at home. I rehearse with selected CD's at home before going to the senior center. At the senior center, I play the same CDs for a group of line dancers. Following the line dancing, there is a live band which plays for ballroom dancing. The band usually arrives during the line dancing. The problem seems to occur while the band is setting up and testing their equipment. We have been sharing

    electrical outlets. Moving across the ballroom from the band did not solve the problem.

Hello .should the laser be weak and not just dusty a repair would be impractical as our labor is 90$ before the part cost.. from the picture it looks like a top loader in which case you could manually clean the laser with a simple q-tip---gently in a circle clean the lens dry q-tip no liquid .. also does it fail with different discs? if only with one that disc might be scratched ,dirty etc..

You need to try a DVD Laser Lens Cleaning Disc.

If this doesn't work then you'll need to remove the cover and clean the Laser Lens with some Lens Cleaning Fluid and a QTip. Just use a few drops on the QTip and then wipe over again with a dry one.

If the above fails then its the Laser that's failing which isn't normally cost effective to replace.

A good way to check is if it will still play CDs but not DVDs then its the Laser.

There should be a small tiny round hole on the front. Get a paper clip and straighten it out then push it through the hole until you feel the door open.

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.

My CFD-Z501 won't play a disc. I get the message "no disc"


Try to use CD/DVD clening disk ($6 in Walmart). Or simply use cotton swab (Q-TIP) and 40 % ethyl alcohol (vodka) or 50-70% isopropyl alcohol (NO ACETONE), depending on your budget.
Also check if discs are inserted correctly and not damaged/durty etc. Also check your discs. Some CD-players dont accept burned CDs (copyed). I believe Sony is not the case, just a suggestion.
If cleaning wont help lens might be damaged.
Good Luck
