Durabrand CD Home Music System Model hm3817dt

Just purchased this cheap system. Popped cd in player and it sounded pretty good for about 1 mnute. The sound just quit. I only had it up to about 20 on the volumne control. At first, it sounded like the cd was skipping but it was also a brand new cd. Then after the skip sound, the speakers just went dead. I checked the connections and they all seem to be okay. I tried to play the radio but there is no sound either. Any suggestions other than taking this product back to Wally world.

    Sound quits after a minute,then comes back on periodically.Almost like it is skipping on the disc,but the disc is good after playing it elsewhere. The radio works fine so it is only the cd component.

If the unit is not under warranty then you can open it and have a look inside. Keep your eyes peeled for bad soldering joints and if it is dusty clean it out.
However if it is under warranty and you open it, then you will break the conditions of the warranty and if it needs repairing then you will be charged the full amount.

Just in case you try to follow directions like me, make sure that you have removed the cover inside the cd slot. No, directions aren't great. They are as difficult as any I have ever seen, but when I tipped the unit up, I saw a note on the bottom of the cd shiny cover that says remove before playing. After removing the flat cover press the button to turn the light off. Light on means standby, not on. Insert cd and push function. Then push play/pause button on right. Hope this helps. If not, return to store.

SOURCE: WEAK SOUND WHEN CONNECTED TO DURABRAND AMP

The electrical output from a turntable actually comes from the cartridge on the tone arm. Specifically, it's generated by an interaction between a magnet and a coil inside the cartridge. They come in two types, MC ("moving coil") and MM ("moving magnet") according to which of the two elements moves and which is fixed. MM cartridges produce more current but MC cartridges usually sound better. No matter which you have though, the total output is too low for the regular line inputs on amplifiers. Ten or twenty years ago, amps has special "phono" inputs. This would have a special pre-amplifier in it that would amplify the cartridge's singal to a level suitable for the rest of the amp. Most amps having a phono input only deal with MM cartridges, which have a higher signal.

I use an MC cartridge with an amp that doesn't have a phono input at all; therefore I needed to buy a special external phono pre-amp. I bought a Musical Fidelity X-LPS. But cheaper pre-amps do exist.

My durabrand cd home music system wont come on


If you have no lights or power to the unit, check on the back of the unit to see if there is a twist and pull type knob for a fuse. If so, unplug the unit/player and take the fuse out. If it is damaged/broken/wire element burned/cracked, it will need to be replaced. Take the old fuse with you to make certain of a correct match(volt/amp/slow or fast acting)Most Radio Shack/Walmarts/Ace Hardware stores stock these type of fuses. They are very inexpensive, usually less than a $1 or $2. They are on most home entertainment equipment/t.v.s etc. to prevent some degree of lightning or power spike damage the unit.

You will not believe it, but he solution if Homer D'OH! simple. Had the same thing, until I realized that what I thought was the CD hold spindle is acually a cardboard protector for the CD components. It seems to be a very flexible CD player "face" correct? It's actually removable cardboard - pull it out and the CD components are now exposed. The CD will properly mount on the spindle...has pretty good sound.

Default volume for durabrand hm3817dt


It appears there is no "good solution."

BUT! I didn't discover that this unit is not actually made by Durabrand. It's made by GPX and I've included a link to the user manual for this product (It's the same model, but the GPX version is black and sports the GPX logo).

Try a laser eye cleaner. It possibly may need to be dusted on the inside. Overheating can cause strange things to happen to electronics.

The default volume is set way too high on this radio. It is at 17 and we would like to reset it to a much lower level. How do I do this?
