Sharp XL-MP130 CD Shelf System - Answered Questions & Fixed issues
Discs in my Sharp XL-Mp130 stop playing I have used a cd lens cleaner...still not working properly
Are you using a dry lens cleaner or one you put fluid on the brushes ? Place a small amount of isophrofyl alcohol on the small brushes of the lens cleaner and run this through 2-3 times. If problem still exists it's probably the laser,your options are to check online (google it) or drop into a stereo repair shop for a replacement. May turn out getting a new system is the cheaper and better idea as labor costs can be expensive.
I have a XL-MP130 and
You can go to any electronics shop and ask for a fm antenna, it's only a wire with a connector, it has no electrical components.
My sharp XLMP 130 all of a sudden started blinking
The problem is with the "power on" relay (RL841) located on the power supply board. Unplug the unit and take off the side panel and top cover. Remove the screws to remove the CD changer. There is a small black rectangular relay just below where the AC cord is soldered onto the PC board. Carefully remove (actually break it off carefully and gently & throw away) the plastic top housing of the relay. Plug in the unit and with a pencil or stick, manually actuate the coil armature while pressing the power on button on the front of the unit. I can almost assure you your unit will return to normal operation. Put it all back together and you're done. The blinking red 4 times followed by a long pulse indicates a power failure. The start up capacitor had drained and couldn't provide enough voltage to pull the relay coil in all the way.
Unit will not come on, but timer button is
Well, it thinks it's set to come on under Timer control.
Get the manual out (or go to retrevo.com, register and download it for free) and go to page 34 and cancel the timer.
Canceling the timer setting in the timer stand-by mode:
1 Press the CLOCK/TIMER button.
2 Within 10 seconds, press the or button to select
"ONCE" or "DAILY", and press the MEMORY/SET button.
3 Within 10 seconds, press the or button to select
"ONCE OFF" or "DAILY OFF", and press the MEMORY/SET button.
Timer will be canceled (the setting will not be canceled).
It will not eject the disks
Many times it is the small belt that stretches if you hear a motor running and it does not open it is more reason to think it is the belt. Warning to everybody with a electronic air cleaner if they produce ozone it destroys rubber all rubber in the house. Rubber around doors windows ect.ect. I have seen belts in electronics crack after less than a month because of ozone.
CD'S wouldn't play or come out
There is a small wole in the tray, you can open the tray by incerting a samal stick inthat wole and then press that causes the tray to open.
Hope this help
FM tuner flashes 5Y and frequency display flashes.
This a memory problem ,try to look for the reset button and press it . If you can't find the reset button then the other option is unplug the unit for 24 hours the purpose is to reset and dessipate or drain the charged current .Feel free to ask me whatever the result,so i was updated and willing to help..
Hope it may help you;;

My XL-MP130 stereo makes a racket...
What your machine is doing is... whenever the unit is powered on or off the cd player resets itself and the clanking you hear is the cd changer resetting itself. The plastic trays of the cd player are driven by plastic gears. These gears are noisy when new, after a few years, they can make quite a clanking noise. Most cd changers of this age have similar mechanisms and this type of noise is inherent in their operation.
I'm afraid the only solution is to replace the unit. Opening the unit to lubricate the gears may cause more problems than it may solve, so I would not recommend it.
CD player fails to read CDs
Cd cleaning disc is not advisable to clean your laser lens.. all you have to do is manually cleaning method! open the unit go to laser lens and clean it with 100% cotton buds then rub it slightly clockwise, but careful this is sensitive parts.
CD trays won't open
If it trying to open and moves part of the way I don't think it is a mechanical failure such as broken cogs in the gears or a belt if belt driven. Sounds more like there is something blocking it.
WITH THE UNIT UNPLUGGED!!!!
Without hitting the open button. use the "emergeny" open hole in the front. Use a paperclip or something to poke in the hole. Hopefully you feel a little resistance and it will pop open. If not...
Using a flashlight (I suggest a LED flashlight), using the above method, grab the tray when it opens slightly. Extremely gently pull the tray out at the same time looking for an obstruction around the tray. If you hit any resistance at all stop pulling, we don't want to further damage the unit.
To get a case off: MAKE SURE THE UNIT IS UNPLUGGED AND WAIT A FEW MINUTES SO THE POWER SUPPLY IS FULLY IS DSCHARGED. Follow the outline of the case removing any screws that hold the case to the chassis. Some have the full case come off, some just a panel. Remove the neccessary screws and poke around being careful not to touch any springs or such. Look for debris that doesn't belong..
Hold on, I just looked at the maual and there are 5 trays. Does this happen to all of them? If all, it is a different story. If each one is driven independently the power supply might be "weak" and not sending sufficient voltage/current to the motors. This requires a meter to check...
Cassette Deck doesn't auto reverse
This is a common problem....with tapes.....in the old days there was a shiny end of tape (EOT) sticker placed on the tape end which was detected as the tape end and caused the electronics to reverse the motor drive to play in the teverse direction.
If consumers alter the length of the tape by cutting and joining they used to cut off the EOT sticker and then the tape wouldnt reverse like in your case.
Now days a hi frequency signal is recorded on the tape and a detector circuit inside sees this signal and reverses the tape for you,
I would suggest that the simplest thing to do is to clean the playback head with a cotton bud and some special head cleaning alcohol.
There jusy may be a build up of magnetic material on the play back head which is stopping the high frequency signal getting through to the detector circuitry.
Different manufacturers do this EOT detection in different ways but the head clean is the first line of attack that you can do yourself.
Please turn off the power before doing this activity and be very careful with the cotton bud that you are not rough and dont push too hard on the recording/play back head.. Be gentle...
The cleaning liquid must be proper head cleaning liquid, so dont try shorth cuts and use just anything to do the cleaning or you may ruin the detector head surface.
The quality of play back sound will also improve from a good clean..

Sharp XL-MP130 CD shelf sys. won't work...at all
The clicking noise is usually the power supply "tripping" because of an over load, your explanation of the fault is very good and helps us in advising you about the fault...
Because the clicking gets slower it means that you have reduced the current being drawn from the power supply.
The item that is causing the over load is the item that when you plug it in or turn it on causes the clicking to start up...
Tyhe power supply is called a switched mode power supply and is usually a collection of transistiors capacitors resistors and a transformer all specially set up to make DC Direct Current and AC alternating current power for your electronics to work with.
These power supplies are expensive and no fuses are employed to make them work but a special detector circuit is installed to close down the power when a high current draw down is detected, Once the high draw down is detected the power supply closes itself down, so then it sees no more high current draw down so it starts up again and this causes the click as the internal transformer and capacitors once again start the cycle to operate to make the DC/AC supplies. So once started up the High current is detected and the power supply closes it self down and the cycle is repeated over and over....
Its a specialised job to locate the problem so its not something you can do your self without electronics training...
