Question about Sherwood Audio Players & Recorders

Open Question

I purchased a Sherwood CDC 680 CD player 3 1/2 months ag, so it is just out of warranty. It is a 5 disc turhtable unit. Often it won't play the CDs and gives me an "error" message. It checks all the CDs searching for content one after another and then reads error. It acts as though it can't see the CDs. And then sometimes it works, but not very often. Could it be dirty? If so, how do I clean it?

SOURCE: Kenwood RXD25 CD player intermitent??

Hi jenoss

Sounds like the unit has either a failing load belt to the cd drawer mechanism,not allowing the transport to fully load the cd. Give the unit a gentle tap just after the drawer closes and see if it resolves the problem.

OR a faulty spindle motor, you will have to take the lid off and after pressing play, give the disc a gentle "kickstart". If it then begins to run, then the motor is the problem.

If you find it is neither of these, get back to me here and I we shall go further

Graeme

SOURCE: CD player fails to read

This is a typical problem when the laser " eye" gets dust on it, unplug the unit and you can try to remove cover and spray the optical pickup "eye' with canned compressed air or other type of optical cleaner found at say like radio shacks, I have solved many disc reading errors with this method

SOURCE: CD Player won't read disc's. ERROR message

Well if the unit came with car over 10 years old, u can't clean it might have to just replace. buying a new one will cost as much as trying to fix that one.

SOURCE: is there a way of connecting my ipod to my sherwood cd player?

The answer isn't with the CD player, it's with the amp.
Does the amp have selectable inputs, or does it just have one input for each channel?

If it's a simple power amp, then you'll have to unplug the CD player and connect your iPod to the amp inputs. I'm guessing that the CD player connects to the amp with RCA (phono) connectors like these ones.
If that's the case, you can get a cable (like this one at Radio Shack, but any office supply store will have one too) to connect your iPod to the amp.

SOURCE: cd will not eject from

My first guess would be that the loading belt is slipping. This will prevent the cd from loading completely and thus won't read. The belt costs around $2-$3. Care must be taken when opening up this unit.

Let me know if you need any additional info.

Check the mode of operation. There can be a setting where it just plays one disc. Random or mixed will give you more songs to get to other discs.

SHERWOOD CDC-2000C ?D6376 starts skipping it was sent to be repair played about 2 discs when I got it back and started skipping again


Unfortunately the laser pickup assembly needs to be replaced, overtime the laser becomes weaker until it can not track properly and will end up skipping or won't read the disc. It is far cheaper to replace the CD player than have the assembly replaced.

The problem is in the laser for sure. Try cleaning with a cd cleaning tool. It's the easiest solution because changing the laser is not always available solution.

Does it only play dts, my sherwood cdc 5090r player. it cant seem to play mp3. can it play WAV?


Yes, wav is what a regular audio cd format is made up of. That is what i would burn if you want to listen to them on the player.
Thank you,

YAMAHA CD PLAYER WON'T PLAY


GG  My kids had a PlayStation 2 that did this and so did my AIWA 3 CD player.  The solution for the PlayStation was to remove the cover use alcohol and clean the lens of the laser reader.  They get dust on them and simply cannot read.  The AIWA required replacement of the laser which cost almost as much as the unit and didn't last 6 months.
