Question about Sony CDP-CX400 400-Disc CD Changer

1 Answer

Lens Knocking Against The CD - All CDs skip or diginoise then fail.

I purchased a CDP-CX400 a month ago. It worked fine for about 3 weeks. Now, every CD skips. I used both a CD Lens Cleaning Disc, as well as taken the machine apart and manually cleaned the lens to no avail. In an attempt to trouble shoot, I watched it load a CD and attempt to play it. The Lens is 'knocking' against the CD surface repeatedly. Sometimes the disc will start to play and then stutter or begin skipping.. occasionally it will play the CD with lots of digital noise. HELP! I got it for cheap on Craig's List and it worked beautifully for 3 weeks before this started happening.

Take the small back cover off and take some electrical grade contact cleaner and spray all around the lens area, that worked for me.

I currently own a Sony-400 CDP CX400, i was wondering if the remote control for my CX400 is compatible with the cx455, I also wanted to know what is the major differences in these two products?


just use the remote and if it works then it is compatible
many companies use the same remote frequencies between models as it saves on expense of producing new units
there may be a problem if the newer unit has extra items to remote control

Disc will not load on sony cdp cx400


Loader mechanism fault. Not engages the CD properly to desired tray section. Contact any service technician. The loader tray should be repaired, and this is not a user repairable fault.

Sony cdp cx 355 skips on first track


Could be some dust or debris in the unit. Also be careful that you are not putting fingermarks near the hole section of each CD you put in, as the CD plays from the centre out.

I bought a Radio Shack cd cleaner (cd w/little brush on it) to clean the lens of the cd player however the machine won't recognize the disc when inserted so I cannot figure out how to "play" it. Many of...


yes here is a simple easy way to get them to stop skipping, stick them in the freezer portion of your fridge, only if the cds have scratches on them, even the smallest scratch can cause a perfectly working cd player to make the cd skip, stick the cd in the freezer for about 15 or 20 mins and pull it out and play it, i have used this method for a lot of my video games as well and have never had to buy any "cd player cleaner cds" i hope this helps
