I have an intermmitent problem where I load up the carousel with five CD's and often the player will only recognise that two or three CD's are installed. I have been careful only to use commercially manufactured pre-recorded CD's (i.e not burned CD's) and have ensured that the disks are unscratched and clean.

Re: Commercially pressed CD's not recognised
Have you tryed to clean the les yet? Try to use a lens cleaning disc. If that does'nt help them you may need to take off the top and very carefully clean the lens very lightly with a cotton swab and a little alcohol. If that doesnt help the sevo alighnments might be off alighnment and unless you have special equipment and tools your not going to be able to do this your self BUT a repair shop might also make it cost prohibitive.. You may if the cleaning doesnt work is go shopping for a new player. Good Luck

It is possible.
If it is a 100 cd carousel then it is a simple computer setting.
If it is a 50 cd carousel you need a credit computer able to recognise 100 selections, a 100 slot carousel and a latch bracket for a 100 cd carousel.
I have never done it but it is definitely possible.
I had the same problem with our 5-CD Sony carousel player CDP-C535
(manufactured Nov 1993). I removed the top metal cover, and loaded five
audio CDs into the carousel. After I closed the table, I pressed the
carousel tight so that it stayed close, and hit the play button. The CD
player tried to push the carousel out with quite a force. I needed to
warp me fingers around the front panel to keep the carousel closed.
After a few cycles of forcing the carousel to remain close, and caused
two separate strong "clucks" from the gear area, the CD carousel became
operational again. The diagnosis of gear problem seems right.
Broken gears. The current replacement 5 disc is a CD/DVD player and sells for $129.00 at Sony or any other Sony retailer. The cost to have a service center even estimate the repair would be more than 50% of the replacement cost. Hope this helps
M-Error is a mechanical error and could have a multitude of causes.
just went through it with a TAD-5160 unit where it was a small slip gear moving a tin lever to ingage the transport sled to insert or eject the disk from and to the carusel. You may have to take the unit apart and asess the problem.
