Subject: Re: [Puptcrit] Sony MP3 Player

These are the directions for turning off the beep on the Sony Portable CD Player Walkman D-EJ100/EJ106CK:

First of all, put 2 AA batteries in it - open the lid and the case to put them in is inside, under where the CD would sit.  If you do this first, it will save the programming and you won't have to do it again until the batteries run out.

Then, follow these directions from Sony:

You can turn off the beep sound that is heard from your headphones/earphones when you operate your CD player.

1.  While play is stopped press DISPLAY/MENU until "t-SEt" appears.

>From this step on, start the next operation within 15 seconds after you finish the previous operation.  If the indications on the display disappear, start from step 1 again.

2.  Press I<< or >>I (that's the forward or back buttons - I can't figure out how to type the straight line) to select the Menu 1 item, than press DISPLAY/MENU or >II.

The Menu 2 item starts flashing.

3.  Press I<< or >>I to select the Menu 2 item, then press DISPLAY/MENU or >II to enter the selection.

When the item has been entered properly, the item stops flashing.

To return to the previous screen, press (stop)
to cancel the setting operation, press and hold (stop)."

It may take several tries to get it to take.  That's why it's a really good idea to put the batteries in the safety and comfort of your own home so you don't have to curse at it while setting up for a show.  

ALSO, another thing I've discovered about using this CD player is that when you first connect it to the sound system you will hear a hum from your speakers which may cause you to frantically start checking all your patch and speaker cords.  All you have to do is open up the lid and put in a CD and the hum should stop.  Oh, and you won't hear any sound at all unless you turn up the volume on the CD player.  It's on the side.

If this is not the CD player you have, Sony has a website that may help you.  I also have an older model walkman.  The display is on the front of the player instead of on the top.  All you do to eliminate the beep on that one is to hold the stop button while you plug it in.  If you still need help, you can e-mail me directly at

Good luck!

>There was a discussion last monthish about the Sony Walkman with the foot pedal.  I bought one but can't remember, and didn't print out, the instructions on how to disable the annoying beep during pause, stop, etc.  Could someone PLEASE relist that?  I suppose I could slog through the back log of entries as well.....  But if you could resubmit that on this list, I'd appreciate it.  I have it hooked up to run through my Peavey Mixer and speakers.  I'm performing this weekend, not only, at our regular venue, the Grande Olde Players Theatre, but that nationally known furniture store, Nebraska Furniture Mart here in lovely Omaha Nebraska.  First time performing there.  I'm glad I have a HUGE sound system!  I'll need it!
