    Hi,

    I have a similar problem. The Volumebutton works really strange. When turning up the volume it´s going down and the other way around.

    With the remote controle it works fine.

    I tried to clean the inside by removing the cover but is does not help.



    Has anyone an idea what it can be?



    Kind regards,

    Johan Knopper

I also have exactly the same problem with the volume control. I was hoping to resolve the problem by doing some internal cleaning but seems like johanknopper tried it before.

I was thinking of buying a remote control separately as I lost mine in relocations. Found a second hand on-line but I am not sure if they all have the same frequency and if it works with mine.

Any Ideas?

    Had the same problem. Volume went up or down at random when volumepot was turned. It even did go to max on it's own!! Not nice.
    Fixed it too :) You gotta take the volume 'potentiometer' out of the frontpanel. Once out, ply back the four metal clips and take off the aluminium part. Then you see the inside of this 'potentometer'. It's a special one as it has a metal ring at the edge and a 'toothwheel' like inner part and a few little pins which slide against these. Mine were covered with grease which took some time to clean off with cotton swaps and alcohol. Guess the grease got in from the potentiometer shaft. Refitted everything and it worked fine again.
    To get to the potentiometer: Take the stereo cover off, take two more side screws off and 5 more from the underside just below the cassette player. Switch on the stereo and push the button to open the CD player slide. Switch off again while slide is open. At the bottom tilt the plastic edges till they slide over their edges to release them. You can now slide the whole frontpanel far enough forward to get access to the volume potentiometer from the inside. Pull the plastic button from it at the frontpanel and unscrew the pot fixing screw. At the other side (inside) you'll see a little pcb where the pot is soldered onto. Pull the pot backwards. Unsolder the three wires going to it and you can take the pot out for cleaning. Many words but once started it will show itself. Good luck. You can do it too :)

Buttons on the stereo, sony zx66i, will not work but the buttons on the remote do. Unfortunately, there is no botton to open the 5 disc changer. Is there a reset button or way to fix it?



check all the buttons and make sure one is not stuck in. If there is one stuck button, it could cause all the others to not work. If you find a stuck one, it will usually pop back out with a little help from a small screwdriver

CD function in 5 disc stereo constantly flashing "CHANGE"


Open the drawer and check to verify the disc was put in the disc 1 position. Sometimes the changer gets confused if disc 1 is not in the disc 1 cavity. Also, 5 disc changers are very prone to failure

5 disk changer dvd/cd shelf system is stuck! shelf 2 & 4 will not retract completely. Is there a reset button for the shelves so that they will open and retract like they are supposed to? Shelves 1, 3,...


Not usually so you may have to dissasemble a little to see if the discs can be removed! Do the discs have any labels on them that are to thick? Thats a big "nono" with the magazine designs!!!

CD changer eject button does not work. Three discs are inside. Changer works. Good sound is produced. But unable to eject disc changer to change discs.


Inspect the tray or door to see if there is a very small hole in it. If so, this is an 'emergency' ejection hole and a standard paper clip, unfolded, can be inserted there to manually eject the tray. This is a real common problem caused by the slippage of a clutch mechanism that is supposed to protect the tray mechanics from being damaged if the tray is somehow impeded during its travel.  It must be tougher than rocket science to properly design this feature -
