Sony D-555 Discman Repair

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Just bought a used Sony D-555 Discman (July 2010) that was supposed to work but doesn't. When turned on, it lights up, the laser eye moves up, the motor spins for a second or so, stops and the laser retracts. This repeats 2 more times and the unit powers off. Questions:

Anybody been able to fix this problem?

Anyplace I can send it to to fix.....private person or company?

The laser eye sits in the middle of the track. Shouldn't it be out the furthest from the center to "see" a CD and start playing? Can you reposition it without destroying it?

Does the Sony repair manual for the D-555 address this problem? If so, is it a DIY? Parts avail?


Seems to me like the laser eye is not seeing a CD.


WTB: Working or non-working D-555 in good shape. I'm in Colorado.

Thanks for any help!!!

Not "real"ones, but maybe try these:




But these are lithium ion, whereas the originals are nickel cadmium. Might run into problems charging these using the circuitry in the D25. Maybe you can locate or fabricate a charger meant specifically for li-ion. As far as I know, no one makes ni-cad replacements for the D25. At least I have not been able to find any for the last few years.
