I used to have this problem too... What was worse for me is that the Sony CD player indicated the slot was "empty" and fed that info to CDJ.
I did some diagnostics, and here's what I came up with - I saw the problem whenever I was using the Pronto-edit software. I don't think it's the software itself, but the fact that I was swapping devices (Slink-E and the Pronto) into the same serial port.
I think that the Sony changers "get lost" somehow. I am 100% certain that it isn't a problem with CDJ.
Cycling the power works well too... Here's something else I did that may have solved the problem - Don't plug your player into the switched outlet on the back of your reciever. By leaving the CD player plugged in all the time, the problem went away.
(Sorry for rambling - it's early).
To summarize - try these solutions: 1. Don't swap devices on your serial port - if you do, unplug Slinke first 2. Keep the power on to the CD players by not plugging them into your reciever.
Let me know if this does the trick....
I know it's frustrating, but I don't get the problem anymore.
