Hi there. I would check the power supply rails, you have probably lost a volatge about the Audio line output /DA stages. Check voltage reg packs, they fail alot. I have repaired a few of these over the years, hit me back if you need to go further.

Hi 2002tii

These are a cool old machine. They use the cdm1 laser mechanism that was revered in its day for high performance. If you have voltage available after the rectifier stages, check the 3 pin voltage regulators. Marked as 78xx for positive regulator, and 79xx for negative. the xx gives you the voltage they are supposed to be putting out. They commonly fail, also check the same for dry solder joint. resolder them anyway if you are unsure. If all the regulators check out, then also check low value flame proof resistors in the power supply rails. Get back to me here again and let me know how you got on. Good Luck

Have checked fuses, replaced taillight bulb, checked wireing & ground connections. brake light works but tail light doesnt come on. can anyone help please.


While something has gone wrong to cause the light to stop working, you could spend hours trouble shooting and replacing parts or you can purchase a repair manual from: http://clymer.com/SearchResults.aspx?t=VT1100&y=2005&mid=125&mn=Honda&

My cd player stopped working the power light is not showing i have changed the lead to make sure it was not the fuse


Check for bulging / leaky capacitors on the main PCB, they are a common problem on Arcam CD Players.
There should be a few 25v 1000uf caps scattered around, check those first.

Hope this helps.

Arcam CD73 CD Player. CD player works fine but sound cuts out.


I too had this problem and was resigned to having the laser mech replaced.............BUT! i opened up my unit (it was long out of warranty) and was suprised at the amount of lubricant on the cog that drives the laser and the track upon which it runs.most of the grease had been pushed to either end of it's travel and as a consequence my unit would cut out particularly at the start and end of CD's as the laser struggled to move and track the disc as it should. Since removing this excess lubricant (with a dry toothbrush) i have enjoyed over six months of trouble free listening. From searching online forums it would seem that many people have experienced similar problems with this transport - a Sony KSM213CCM - and have replaced the entire mech! it would appear that someone a the factory has been a little over enthusiastic with the lubricant! Hope this fix is of help

Ethernet card Missing


I had exactly the same problem a couple of years ago, light on but nobody home, it could be the card just isn't working properly anymore. I bought a new one, fixed the issue, this was after I had tried replacing the cable.

Samsung cd/dvd drive


The first thing I try in this error is to remove the upper lower filters

If that doesn't resolve, then time to check cable connections and BIOS settings to ensure the drive is seen by the motherboard.
