Hi. I'm new here so I hope I have the correct forum.
I have a Sony combination CD/AM/FM/Cassette portable. Recently, the volume, which may start out at the correct level, will suddenly jump to a much higher volume, along with increased distortion. The front desk person at the Sony servicecenter said they want to change the eye of the CD player. They also said they will not warrantee the repair if I do not use the weight that has to be placed on top of the CD while playing, which has been lost in a recent move. This weight is NLA. I mentioned that the problem crops up in the AM/FM mode, not just in CD, so I'm thinking it's not the eye, but an amp or preamp problem.
Does anyone have any thoughts on the cause of this problem?
Does anyone know where I can get one of these weights?
