This is a great player. I too bought it circa 1990 and used since. She slowly gave up on me not long ago, problems with the door load and recognizing the disc so it seemed.... But with help from nichloaswvl review on how to access some easy features .... and searching.... only the door drive belt was worn. Replaced it with an O-ring 1/16 body 1 3/4 id and 1 7/8 od - voila. We are in here rocking to Squeeze Tempted tonight.... Again. Thanks all and thank you SONY!!!!

I bought this player in early 1990 for the equivalent of 247 euro. Best CD player I have ever had! Good buttons, clear display, great FFWD and REV. Very dynamic sound compared to my other player, a 2002 TEAC CD-P1250 of lesser quality compared to the Sony. Still playing stable after 25 years. Unbelievably: even the original Sony batteries for the remote control, shipped with the unit, still work today (in May 2015!). They are date stamped 89-06. Only thing I had, was a little trouble with the tray. It turned out the belt was slipping. Now this is very easy to repair as the belt that operates the tray is accessible from the underside of the device without even opening the top cover. You just remove the blank metal plate (held with a few screws) and there you'll find the culprit. I cleaned mine with isopropyl alcohol and put it back *inside out* (using the side that hadn't been used before) and that made the tray work again. Job done!

re: CDP-470

A very nice cd player! Found it in a second hand store for about 5 euro! With the remote included!
Looks quite good! Only problem that I found is that it makes a sound when the cd is playing.
The belt is not the problem, the tray works just fine. The cd's are playing, but the machine is not silent, it makes a spinning sound. Any ideas?
