I recently got a used Sony CD player model CDP XA 20 ES. This unit needs a "stabilizer" which sits on top of the disc before the CD tray is closed. Would you happen to have this, and if so provide details for ordering? You may reply to me directly at email@example.com. Thank you.
Sony wants you to order the manual first, and pay for it.
Then, you look up the part number in the manual and order it.
That's pretty much how it is with any product from Japan.
OR find a used one, on e bay, etc... for parts...non working one will be nice and cheap.
Yes, an entire non working unit, for spare parts, is a good way to go.
