There is a switch on the bottom of the unit that puts it in "HOLD" mode. My guess its for use when it is shipped so there will be less chance of damage. Try switching the two position switch to the other position.

Sony Walkman D-EJ100 Personal CD Player: eats batteries even when not in use. I listened to a CD for 20 minutes, stopped, and a pair of new AA batteries were dead 4 days later. Is there a way to shut


Probably suffered damp ingress while in storage, and thus some conductive internal corrosion; use a test meter to see if there's any leakage when it's switched off and take it from there...
Either that or use AA Nimh rechargeable batteries

I have connected an adapter of 4.5V with Sony Walkman, i am receiving an error "HI DC IN". Let me know the problem.


hi,
check the out put voltage of that adapter may be its out put is higher than 4.5V dc.
thats why the Walkman displays HI dc IN. do one thing purchase a 4.5V 1amps SMPS adapter (connector with same polarity). it will give a constant output of 4.5v (110v t0 240v input)
ok

I have a sony D-EJ100 portable cd player that says "hold" in the display when i try to play a cd. What does this mean and what do I need to do to get the player working again? Thanks


there is a manual sliding switch on the side near the volume control to put unit in hold or off of hold--this feature is to prevent accidental button presses

My sony N50 won't play and reads no disc when htere is one in it. The batteries are fine


It is quite possible that your optical unit is faulty. First of all clean the lens on the optical head using an ear bud, softly rub for a good glazing. then try to see if it works if not the lens unit assembly must be replaced and must be done with care and experience.so take help to replce but make sure the cost is within a practical level. Good day

Download the firmware update from sony, burn it to a cd in case ithappens again, or you wanna pass it on. HOLD THE PLAY/PAUSE BUTTON ONTHE WALKMAN BUTTON WHEN PLUGGING IT INTO YOUR COMPUTER'SUSB PORT. WITHOUT LETTING GO OF THE PLAY/PAUSE BUTTON, START THEFIRMWARE INSTALLER & HOLD THE PLAY BUTTON ALL THE WAY THROUGH tocompletion. ET VOILA! YOU SHOULD HAVE A WORKING WALKMAN AGAIN! Yay!!!

OK.. here's what else I did. I followed exactly what is stated above and found I needed to try it a few times, for whatever reason, to get it to "take." Then, the player would still not open properly so I did the above routine AGAIN and this time checked the FORMAT option, which I also had to do a couple times to get that to "take" too. Finally, after working at this for awhile, I was able to install some new music to the player. It is now totally back in working order.

PLEASE: Be patient when you do this. And you can do these routines numerous times if need be with no apparent problem as it just keeps redoing the routine like it was the first time. I was so frustrated in talking with a SONY TECH REP in on-line chat before I came here. I was told the player "had experienced an internal malfunction" which would require service and that there was no was to restore the "system files" to the player, obviously not true as that's what the FIRMWARE (and the FORMAT routine too) upgrade does. Phewww.. I'm elated! take care.

Sony cd walkman reads but won't play


If you have a small enough screwdriver and some time it's not too hard. I just fixed one of my kids' walkman (same make & model) yesterday. The motor that spins the gears that makes the laser assembly move back & forth came loose. There is a single screw that holds this motor in place. They should use some lok-tite or similar when they assemble these things.

Hold down the Display/Menu function button (one of those three buttons on the left of the unit) for about 3-4 seconds until the display reads "t set". When this appears, push the track forward button once (>>|) so the display reads "beep"; now press the play pause button (>||) once. The display will now say "on", push the track forward button (>>|) once to make it read "off"; now push the stop play button. You're done. Enjoy the silence.

Cd player buttons don't work


On almost every port. cd player is a botton lock switch . Some make all the buttons not work and some units only let play work. I suggest you look for this before taking apart as these units have whats called ribbon cable inside them and are very easy to damage them.
