I appreciate your help here. My dad wants to start using his Sony D100 again, but cannot find the power supply. It says DC IN 9V. Can you recommend any power supply available on the internet?
Thanks in advance!
I'm 99% sure the Sony Discman D-100 (manufactured somewhere around 86/87) uses a 9V negative tip power supply common with models from the D-5/D-50 through the D-150, D-250, D-555, D-9, D-40, and D-350. A Sony AC-950W or AC-940A power supply will provide the proper voltage/power. Also, a lot of Panasonic phone power supplies (the bulky grey ones) provide the proper fitting plug and voltage. Just make sure you get one with at least 500mA max current (600mA is better) and a negative tip. If you want to make sure, check the picture on the back of the D-100. It should have a '+' with a line pointing to the outer ring and a '-' with a line pointing to the inner ring/dot. This indicates the center of the plug, the tip, is negative relative to the outer portion of the barrel plug.
I'm posting a picture of an AC-940A that I took from an eBay listing. Make sure the diagram looks like the one on the back of the D-100.
I am new to this forum, and I just sent you a PM regarding repair work on two Philips AZ6808. I really would like them to work again or have them combined into 1 proper working player. One of them I bought only this morning in mint condition in its original box, with all accesories in their original packing materials incl. the battery pack, so the laser might be just fine/brandnew.
I'd forgotten this thread existed
If anyone reading this owns a D-777 or E-905 that intermittently skips whilst playing (I mean whilst not being shaken), PM me as I know the most common cause, and associated solution, from personal experience of these wonderful players.
Hello Kaosun, I have come across an offer for a Philips AZ6808 at a decent price but not sure if it is worth a shot. Cosmetically the player looks alright but I have no idea about the internals. Are these Philips player more difficult to repair if there's a problem with them? I mean compare to Sony player of the same vintage (D555/D303/D350) it seems the Sony relatively easy to repair because parts are still available. Can you share some experience you have with the Philips?
