Hi and welcome to JustAnswer,
Thank you for the question and your patience. Should you still need assistance for information purposes only...
Initially, the described symptom almost always point to an internal hardware issue. Are you then considering a DIY (do-it-yourself) repair approach? If yes, do you have access to and familiar with a multimeter and even perhaps a soldering iron?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
i do have a soldering ironand a multimeter
Expert:  Louie replied 2 years ago.
Great on the DIY!
Let's try having a look inside. Can you please try carefully opening the 2 side covers? ...and then the top cover?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
the top will not com off i part of the cd player
Expert:  Louie replied 2 years ago.
Were you able to remove the screws at the rear? ...and lift the top cover's rear end only pivoting at the front?
There are 4 locking tabs/claws at the front part of the top cover. It may also be necessary to gently pry/spread open the top cover.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
i was able to take off the top and side i am able to see the cd in side the player
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
you are taking a long time
Expert:  Louie replied 2 years ago.
Perhaps somebody else can do it faster. The question would be re-opened as I would rather opt out.
Still, good luck with the Sony.
