Question about Sony Boom Box With CD Player & Cassette Recorder,CFD-S01CD Radio/Cassette/CD Boombox

Open Question

Cd won't spin on Sony CFD-101

With cover open, safety switch held down, I see:
The CD spindle does not rotate under power; but it also ceases to be able to be free spun by hand.
The red laser comes on okay.
The lens moves up & down trying to focus okay.
I read .013 ohms across both th spindle & laser drive motors.
There are no fuses that are obvious.
What next??

SOURCE: How to preset a radio station on Sony CFD-S200 Cassette/CD boombox

You will need to use the Forward and Reverse buttons on the CD player. Set the station by holding the button you want to set it to until it blinks and shows the station number.
To set more that 10 stations. Press the (>10) button and then enter 11 or 12 or so on and set the stations the same as above.

SOURCE: CD player says "no disk" when there is disk in player.

My CFD-f10 showed "no disk" after not being used for a few months. Before that it began to stick or skip toward the end of the disk. The trouble was the drive mechanism was failing to move easily due to poor lubrication of the CD drive mechanism. It can be lubricated, but the job is difficult. The top must be opened. First unplug from 120 V and also remove all 6 D batteries, then take 7 screws out from the top. One is under the Tape lid. Two are under the CD lid. Four are along the back. Also take out the screw from the bottom that holds the antenna. There are little arrows next to those screws. Do not take out any more screws than those. Gently lift the top, which includes the CD and tape lids, from the rear while moving the top a little toward the rear. It will seem very tight at first. Do not force it, but keep gently prying. There are circuit boards close to the seam, so do not pry open with long tools. The rear will lift up about 1.5". The handle stays attached to the bottom. Then the flat ribbon cable must be pulled from the ivory socket. The ends of the cable stick into the socket. The socket remains on the circuit board. As the top is raised further, unplug the cables preventing movement, Carefully note where they are plugged in. After the top is opened about 90 degrees, leaving the tape drive still close to the bottom cabinet, remove the 4 CD drive attachment screws with metal washers at the colored rubber washers and also the cable. Now the CD drive can be removed. With very fine synthetic clock oil, I lubricated the end of the motor shaft, (lift the plastic cover a little by unclipping the little snaps.) Very gently operate the mechanism by pushing on the larger gears. Sony had lubricated most, but the lub must have gotten thick with age. Put a little synthetic oil wherever there are moving parts. By turning the gears by hand, you will tell if all is working freely. Then carefully put all back together. Yes the CFD-f10 now does play CDs again!!! I do not know for how long. (Sony style outlet online is selling the newer refurbished CFD-S350 silver boom boxes for about $37.00, which also uses the more desirable 6 "D" batteries, and comes with remote. I have one on order.) The synthetic clock oil can be obtained from any company selling jewery or clock parts, but it is quite expensive, easily half what the refurbished CFD-S350 costs.

SOURCE: Sony CFD G505 CD Radio Cassette-Corder - I have no

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.

Sony cfd-z110 cd seems to not spin/play when door/lid is closed but will play when lid is open and lid switch is depressed, is there any thing (maintence) that needs done on that round piece (that is...

your on the right track. the piece on top should spin really freely. there is a spring inside of that piece. if it lost its track it will lock it up from spinning. one other think it maybe is the tab is broken that presses the switch down. inspect both things if it ends up being the tab missing you can simple hot glue the switch down or dissemble and twists the two wires together (ones at the switch) that will bypass the switch. beware if you do this the laser will be active every time you have it in cd mode. (don't look at the laser it can harm your eyes) hope this helps please rate me.

My sony CFD-E100 won't recognize CDs

use a cotton swab to clean the optical lens-which is seen by opening the CD cover. if after cleaning the lens it still doesnt play a cd - exercise all manual switches(could be a dirty cd/radio switch), several times. after these steps, and the cd still refuses to spin...its hopless. the optic is bad.and not economical to repair. bet the cotton swab does the trick.

The CD spins, but will not play. It does not seem

Your laser head has probably gotten weak, or the spindle motor is worn. You can probably replace either yourself if you're VERY mechanically inclined, otherwise I would leave that up to a shop.
Good luck.

CD player says "no disk" when there is disk in player.

Get a CD Cleaner and check your electric current output to make sure it matches the voltage requirement.

If the CD Cleaner doesnt work, then replace your CD Lens

Play mode

Tape the play button down (better if you have a repeat button) I have done this and used a marble under the tape to simulate a thumb-like pressure imitation

CD player not working

NO NO NO NO NO NO dont be sticking a screw driver where you dont know where its going!!!! Theres no belt under the turntable as its a direct drive motor. It the platter dosent turn then that means that the laser is not focusing on the disc. This could a combination of five differant things. First is a simple one as the lens may need cleaning. Try first by using a good lens cleaning disc. Second make sure the slider that the lens is attached to is all the way back to the platter as sometimes there is a small belt that drives the slider assy via a worm gear and that belt goes bad alot as the worm gear i've seen get gunked up with air and dirt. Third is the platter its self . It may have slipped down to close to the lens and it wont focus. Forth could be the motor drive curcuit is defective . Coulkd be a bad motor control ic or the b+ going to the curcuit. and finally but not least could be a bad laser assy. If this is bad you might as well buy a new unit unless you can install one your self but be warned if you do you will need to alighn the new PU assy for tracking and focus gains as well as rf azmuth and laser power. Good luck I hope this put a little lite on the subject for ya.
