Sharp CD-C3800 won't turn on

A few years back, my stereo quit working. It won't power on at all. I'd like to try to fix it but not sure what the problem is. I haven't done anything with it at all, just trying to find the best place to start.

Sometimes you can smell a burnt electronic device and see if somthing is burn up inside. Its common that fuses can blow sometimes they are a bit under rated and can blow for no reason. Check the fuse first and try and replace it with the same one first. They usualy are near the power cord and you need a coin to open them. They are not a common fuse you need to get them from radio shack or an audio parts store.

Well now the first thing your gonna need is a vom. If you dont have one or dont know what that is then stop right here and take to a repair shop.. If you know how to use a vom the first thing you wanna do is measure the primary of the power xformer and check all the a/c fuses. Next make sure there are no mechanical switch to switch the ppower off from the power supply next try to measure the voltages comming fron the power supply and Im not sure whats supose to be where but a schematic should assist ya with the voltages. Good Luck

Stereo turns on shuts off after few seconds

This is a bad power supply. You have to do some serious work at the component level of the unit to fix it.

Where can I get an antenna for Sharp CO-C3800 stereo?

It depends on the plug of the antenna on the system, if it is a female RF plug, you can use a normal bunny ears antenna with a female to female adapter.

Good luck!

Sharp CD-BA2100 cd drawer won't turn or close.

Take the 4 screws out of the top, lift the CD drawer out, disconnect the two wire harnesses, take the top off, lift the 3 disc tray out, then force the drawer open and closed a few times until it slides freely. Put it back together and it may or may not work. Worked for me.

I have a cd xp120 sharp mini stereo andt it won`t read the disc,i bought and replaced the lens but it still says no disc.

To fix this properly the whole laser assembly needs to be purchased, because it comes pre-aligned which is critical when it comes to a set up.

Radio was working great today, then bam it quit. Checked the fuse found it blew(10amp) replaced it. Tried to power up the radio NOTHING... Checked ground wiring,it's fine, checked two other fuses fine....

If you already have your dash apart, have you looked for a fuse directly on the radio itself? There should be one somewhere near the power wiring on the back of it. If this is blown, you will be getting power to the wiring, but not to the radio. Replacing this fuse should help you out.
If this is not the problem, use a voltmeter to check the wiring where it goes into your stereo. If there is no power here, then the power overload that blew your 10amp fuse is probably related to a short circuit somewhere in the wiring between the fuse and the stereo. To repair this, you will likely have to run a few new power wires (you should replace both the positive and negative to make sure you have fully bypassed the problem) from the fuse to the stereo. If you have checked these wires with a voltmeter and they have power at the back of the stereo, but the stereo itself is not still not working, then the problem is with the stereo itself.
If you find that the wiring to the stereo all has power ... the fuses are all good (which you have already stated) ... the fuse on the stereo itself is in good shape ... then there might be a short within the workings of the stereo itself. If you are not experienced with repairing electronics this could be out of your ability to fix -- you can bring it to a shop or buy a replacement. If you are experienced with repairing electronics, open up the stereo and start checking the wiring (starting from the closest point to the power input and moving towards the stereo's face. This could be a long and arduous process ... so if you are not experienced with it ... I recommend taking it to a professional or just replacing it (your hair is probably worth more than the $100 you would spend on a decent replacement stereo ... and if you are like me, you would be ripping out your hair after checking the first few hundred possible connections within the stereo itself).
Hopefully it is just the fuse on the back of the stereo itself, and you can have that fixed in short order. Good luck!

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.
