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!!!
