Hi,

This is a typical problem with units that uses this type of display. Often the problem would be the bulb(s) that provide the backlight for the small display panel. These bulbs function in a similar fashion as the backlight of cellphones LCD and laptops display LCD.

Repair would require a fair familiarity of electronic components/circuitry and safety procedures, use of a DVM and a soldering iron. It would be to your added advantage access to a service manual or at the very least a schematic diagram with voltage readings. Should you be uncomfortable performing a DIY (do-it-yourself), perhaps your best bet would then be to seek the services of a qualified professional.

If you are considering DIY (do-it-yourself), you need to remove the top panel/cover and gain access to the rear of the display and the rectangular PCB board. The bulbs are usually inside a white plastic housing to focus all the light forward.

There are two ways of going about the repairs:

  • replace bulb with identical part normally and readily available from most electronics supply store;
  • modify by using a high intensity LED, a dropping resistor and a capacitor. Here is a video of a similar repair on another brand with identical problem (credit to miguelovitch).
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

How do i program for sony cd player


I also have a Sony CD player (CDP-XE330) and I have tried almost every code from the yamaha manual, but without success.
The only codes that yamaha remote supports, are the codes from the list in the yamaha manual. If none works, you are out of luck and the only solution is using the original sony remote (if you have one) or universal remote.

I have recently purchased Logitech Harmony 525 on eBay and now I control all my 7 devices with it without any issues. It is programmed via USB and Logitech has codes for almost 250.000 devices.

Cdp-ce215 sony cd player display dead.


Yes, most likely it is the display. Your best bet is to sell it for parts/as is on craigslist or the likes, and purchase a replacement as a comparable replacement would be very inexpensive. If you have any other questions let me know.
Thanks,

Sony CDP-397 Problems


The CD tray is driven by a belt below the tray or on the right hand side (I can't remember the exact model). The belt is probably slipping. Replace the belt and you should be fine. I think you should be able to replace the belt without removing the tray.
I'll look up the model tonight and update this if there are significant differences from what I already stated.
