Question about Sony CFD-C1000 Cassette/CD Boombox
The tuner and tape work fine. The "roulette wheel" open and turns just as it should. But when it goes to play any of the three CD's, the message "no disk" comes up on the LCD panel for all three positions, after a 5 second interval. I took the unit apart but didn't find anything besides the piece of tape that held the rear ribbon cable had come loose. My gut feeling is that there is an optical component (LED?) that is supposed to be blocked by the disk and is not responding, but I don't want to start poking around without a little more guidance. There is a light inside the top that is working, but I don't know if that is decorative or part of the detection circuit. I don't, of course, have a service manual or even a schematic. The unit was given to me, so I don't want to invest $25 for a service manual, only to discover that it is a board level problem that can't be fixed. Thanks, Mike
I have a cdf-e75 that had a similar problem, although the red power light was dim for all functions. (the radio, tape and cd)
After opening up the unit and inspecting, I found one of the pins on the printed circuit board for the power had broken away from the solder. (it is a tiny board where the AC connector is soldered to) Seems in my unit there is nothing securing the molded AC connecter to the plastic case except the the printed circuit board it is soldered to-It is a poor design; perhaps your is the same? I suspect over time pushing the AC cord into the back of the player may have broke the connection? Anyway, I soldered the connection and I have never had any additional problems as the unit has worked fine since.
Don't know if this helps, but my suggestion would be to open the unit and inspect the pin connections on the AC printed circuit board to see if any have a loose/broken connection. ( Mine was not noticible with the naked eye as I had to use a magnifying lens and a bright light. Hope this might help.

There are 11 screws that need to be removed: Bottom - 2 on both sides of the word "ATTENTION"; 2 on the outer edge at the three and nine o'clock positions; 3 under the handle; 2 in the CD player compartment; and 2 in the upper left and right corners of the cassette compartment.

Sorry to be teh bearer of bad news, but the optical block (light engine) can not be dis-asembled outside of a cleanroom. You can remove the rear cover of the set and clean the mirrors and glass. That may help, but usually these typesd of symptoms are an indication that the light engine is starting to fail. The light engine can be replaced by you if you feel comfortable. The part is still available.
Keep us posted.
