Question about Denon DCM-370 5-Disc CD Changer

1 Answer

CDs skip on normal playback

I've had this on going issue where CDs are starting to skip on playback. Manifests as a brief 3-4 second pause. This occurs on both CDs and CD-Rs - there is no consistent pattern; the skips occur at different spots on the CD at different times. At times it is frequent and irritating enough to stop play; other times it may occur only once (or even not at all). It seems to occur more when unit is first powered on, although this isn't always the case. Coule this be an issue of laser alignment? Is it a reasonable fix? Or, should I start looking for another unit?

Hi, the most probable cause for this is the lasers light output falling off as it ages. Sometimes you can temporarly improve this by cleaning the laser lens with some alcohol. However the only real solution is to replace the laser.

If you are confident taking stuff apart you may be able to do this yourself. Almost all modern laser assemblies come fully calibrated so all you need to do is take the old on out and fit the new one.

The lasers often have the part number on the side of them. You can get spares from CPC in the UK. But a search for the part number should find you a spares supplier wherever you are.

Regards, Andrew

How do i get rid of message code 3 ??????


Actucally, there are a few ways to bypass Cinavia, but no program can remove Cinavia. If your video is a homemade movie or other personal recording, to play your recording without muting you may either:
· Pause the video, wait 30 seconds for the audio to be un-muted, then skip over those portions where the professionally produced material is used and continue playing the rest of the video, or
· Pause the video, wait 30 seconds for the audio to be un-muted, then play video from a different optical disc for at least 10 minutes before continuing playback of this video.

Hi, I have an HHB Burn-It CDR 830. Whenever I'm recording, along about the 5th track in- the player starts to fuzz out. The time stutters/freezes momentarily, and then continues normally for a while...


If it's always around the same physical location on a given CD it would have to be a physical problem with the transport, not the lens.

Esoteric but comprehensive advice....

Can not use with vontage phone


1 = start over at beginning of message (I think)
2 = save
3 = delete
5 = review message options (playback speed, etc)
7 = back up 10 seconds
8 = pause (# to mark for message segment repeating - whatever that is, any other key to resume playback)
9 = fast forward 10 seconds
# = skip to next message
* = cancel

By the way, you can get all of this (and more) by pressing 0 during message playback. Pressing 0 at any menu gives you help for that specific menu.

3 disc Phillips cd player sometimes skips. It is


At some time in its life, the laser that reads the CD starts to get too weak to operate reliably. That's probably what's happening here. Unlike mechanical parts that can be inspected for wear, electronic parts tend to work fine one day, then the next, poof. The laser assembly is replaceable if you can locate the part and find someone to install it. An electronic service shop could give an estimate for repair. If you can provide the full model number, I'll see if I can find the part number.

CDs skip


Hello

Ok, it sound to me that the laser lens which actually reads the cd's has some dirt particles on it.

There is a very cheap method of solving this problem.
Just go to any cd shop and buy yourself a decent laser lens cleaner disc, follow the instructions and you should be set.

Kind regards

MP3 files start skipping/popping after few minutes of playback


Sony say in the manual that if you record high bit-rate mp3's the sound may be intermittent. I feel this is due to the decoder having to move ALOT of bits around to play, try some makeing a disk with mixed rate mp3's on. e.g.) some 64Kbps, some 128, some 192, and some as high as you can get and see if there is any differ Luck
