Re: HCD-EC98P Not powering up,

Hello RayLambe,


Welcome and thank you for considering the SONY Community!


We are sorry to hear that your device is not powering on. You may consider following the guidelines below to fix the issue.




  • Refer to your device's manual if you need model-specific information to complete any of the steps in this article. Go to Manuals, Specifications & Warranty.
  • Each of these steps represents a possible solution to this issue. Check the power status after you've completed each step.



Follow these troubleshooting steps to fix this issue:

  1. Make sure to securely plug in the power cord of your stereo system to an AC power outlet.
  2. If you have a surge protector, unplug it and plug the power cord directly into the AC power outlet.
  3. Plug your stereo system into a different AC power outlet to make sure there's no problem with the current AC power outlet.
  4. If your stereo system has a voltage switch on the rear of the unit, make sure the switch is set to the correct voltage for your area.


    Note: Some stereo systems have a 110 to 220 voltage switch on the rear of the unit, where the default setting is 220V. Verify that this switch is set to 110V.


  5. Press and hold the POWER button.
  6. While pressing the POWER button, unplug the power cord from the AC power outlet.
  7. Release the POWER button.
  8. Plug the power cord back into the AC power outlet, and try to power on the system.
  9. Make sure that nothing blocks the ventilation holes on the rear of your stereo system, and that it's in a location with adequate ventilation.


    Note: When the volume is set at a high level for more than three hours, unplug the power cord for one to two hours to reset any output generators inside the unit. This will avoid the system to overheat and will prevent damage to the unit.


  10. If applicable to your model, reset the stereo system.


If the issue is still unresolved, service may be required.


Best regards,

Re: HCD-EC98P Not powering up,

OK so i followed your instructions and NO GO. the machine powers on and then in the display window it tells me it is reading , then as it is reading, it shuts its self off again.

I reside in North Bay Ontario Canada, and i am unaware of any repair places near me for your products.
