VCR not functioning

I used a "wet" VCR cleaner tape. The next day I tried to play a VHS tape and the unit makes clunking noises and all I see is fuzz on the screen. DVD player works fine.

You probably used too much "wet" cleaner on the tape which caused the heads to get fouled. You could try running the wet cleaner through again but use a little less solution than recommended. Failing that you could have the mechanism out of alignment which will require professional help to repair.

CD not working propely


"No disk" is about as fatal a CD read error as ther is. Before we assume the player is at fault let's look at our media. A CD should be handled and cared for like any opitical device. Dirt, fingerprints and scratches are tolerated somewhat but the CD standard isn't impervious to problems.

Do you get any constant results with any CD, say one that always works vs one that never works? Compare them visually for problems on the one that doesn't. I use a clean soft cloth with glass cleaner to clean my media.

This is the entire troubleshooting section for the unit.

Care of CDs
When a CD becomes dirty, wipe it from the center out with a
cleaning cloth. After playing a CD, store it in its case. Do
not keep it in hot or humid places.

Troubleshooting
If your unit fails to perform properly, check the following guide
and the relevant sections of the Operating Instructions.
There is no sound.
•Are the speakers and AC power cord connected properly?
The unit shut off suddenly.
•Possibly a short circuit in the speaker terminals.
Disconnect the AC power cord from the AC power outlet
and re-connect the speaker cords correctly.
The unit blacks out when the unit is turned off.
•Is ECO mode set to on?
Erroneous display.
•Reset the unit.
Poor radio reception.
•Check antenna connection. Adjust the antenna to find the
best reception.
•Move unit and antenna away from other electric appliances
and cords.
The tape does not run.
•Is the deck in pause?
Poor tape sound.
•Check for dirty heads. Clean them if needed.
•Use type I (normal) tapes.
Cannot record.
•Is the erasure prevention tab of the tape broken off? If so,
cover the detection slot with adhesive tape.
The CD player works poorly.
•Is the disc correctly loaded?
•Is the disc dirty?
•Is the lens affected by condensation? If so, wait
approximately one hour and try again.
Resetting the unit
If an unusual condition occurs in the display window or the
cassette deck, reset the unit as follows:
1 Press POWER to turn off the power.
If the power cannot be turned off, disconnect the AC power
cord, then plug it in again.
2 Hold down s and press POWER.
Everything stored in memory after purchase is cleared.
Condensation
Moisture may form on the CD pickup lens when:
•The unit is moved from a cold spot to a warm spot
•The heating system has just been turned on
•The unit is used in a very humid room
•The unit is cooled by an air conditioner
When this unit has condensation inside, it may not function
normally. Should this occur, leave the unit for a few hours,
then try to operate again.

CMT-ED1 cd player works intermittently/partially


Greetings, I have owned this system since around 1999/2000, my CD function started to mal-function a year or so later. It would sometimes play, but more often than not, it would wobble and make strange clicking type noises. I gave up trying to figure the problem out because of the frustration, and didnt want to spring big bucks to take it in the shop to fix professionaly. However...only yesterday, based upon some advice I read online somewhere, I think I solved the problem and I will pass along what I did.
1 I first took some rubbing alcolhol and useing a model paint brush, I dipped the brush into the bottle and applyed it on the laser lense (do this spareingly, do not flood) this cleaned the lense of dust and grime)
2 It played a CD for the first time in 10 years. BUT...it started to do it's old tricks when I tryed to skip to the next song.
3 I noticed a small button on the right, front side on top of the unit. I think this button serves as a sort of safety stop. I then lifted up the glass lid, and held down the button with my finger. I noticed the lense of the laser go DOWN into the body of the unit. When I released the button, it came back UP.
4 I placed a CD into the player, placed the stabiliser on the top of the CD as normal, AND HELD THE BUTTON DOWN with my finger, LEAVEING THE GLASS TOP UP. It PLAYED. I recorded a Flatt

CDs won't play RCA RS2651


I think the laser is mis-aligned or the laser unit needs replacing. If you are able to check this for yourself otherwise find a competant technician. Hope this helps.

How to play CD on Aiwa NSX-3500 (part of CX-N3500U) w/o remote control?


I thought that I had the same problem. I then discovered that when I put 3 CD's in it started up on it's own. If you push the demo button you can see how it's supposed to light up the number of tracks in a square on the right of the display. It wasn't doing that until I put in all 3. Then it started up and I was able to use the disc 1, 2 & 3 buttons to change from 1 CD to the next and I used the Up and Down buttons to change songs and the play button above the tape deck is multi-functional. Hope this helps.

Tape player not working


i have had this problem with mine what you can try is when it does the clicking sound you can take your fingers reach under the black part w/ the head and gently push up when it clicks if you hear more clicks and the part moves then try pushing and holding the tape switch located at the left or right top corners of the player then press play if the head goes up but the clicks 3 times fallowed by 6 clicks the repeat the process. what is going on is if they r not use it tends to lock up

Dvd wont play in mini hi fi system


First, you should never use commercial cleaners on CDs or cassette heads. They can create more problems than cures.
Unit may have bad disk motor or optical pick-up

Sony cmt-hp7 - broken


The unit will attempt an internal reset to start from a known position. If you are hearing mechanical noises, the unit is out of sequence and must be rebuilt. These are not the most straightforward units. If any portion of hte system fails the "startup" sequence, the entire unit will stop. Unfortunately, this may need to see a servicer.

Clicking sound in tape deck


All Aiwas  are prone to this problem.  The doors are a real pain and easily give up the ghost.  I have 2, both probmatic in this direction.
I have spoken to others about this problem. Seems no easy fix.
Have you in your case, tried leaving and old tape in the tape part of your  unit . The noise you hear, usually starts when tape unit area doors are about to pack a wobbly. Unless under warrenty, proberly,
not worth getting fixed.    It seems something gets weak in the activation part and get a mind of its own.  Very common after about 3 yrs of ownership.  All the best: jamz

Cassette player works fine, then screeches after 20-30 minutes.


Yeppers very common problem .. If the noise dosent come from the speakers then the problem is in the motor in the cassette deck. if the problem comes from the speakers when the deck is playing a tape, then the problem is in the record/playback switch. you may beable to fix it by spraying just a lttle bit of tuner cleaner inside the switch. It shouldnt cost much to have a repair shop do this as if you spray too much your going to ruin the belts and the mechanism. Good Luck
