Question about Teac PD-H300 CD Player

4 Answers

Every CD is skipping

Hi I'm wondering if my Teac CD player needs servicing. It's gotten to the point where nearly every CD skips, and I know it's not the CDs because they play fine on my computer. Is there anything I can do to fix this on my own before sending it in? Are those laser lens cleaners worthwhile? thanks in advance, Joe

    CD's skip especially when the unit has warmed up? Sounds crazy but true.

    After the Bose Wave System sigle cd player fell on the floor and now cd skips couple of areas middle and towards the end. Repaie would cost close to what the unit is worth (only one year old)

If the cleaning cd does not work, try unplugging the player, taking the back cover off and manually cleaning the lens with cotton wool or cotton buds. If there is a stubborn smear on the lens, try methylated spirits on the cotton wool. Please note the following: Don't lose any screws You may need to take additional pieces of metal or plastic off to get at the lens; do not lose these or the screws that hold them and make sure they go back in the right order DO NOT TOUCH THE LENS WITH YOUR HANDS OR ANYTHING NOT CONSISTING OF COTTON WOOL OR METHYLATED SPIRITS! The lens will be quite fragile-do not apply excessive pressure Ensure everything goes back together the way it was, minus dust and dirt. hope this helps. stoodleysnow P.S. You can get methylated spirits at a local hardware or diy shop, or occasionally art shop.

I would not recommend meths as it is not pure and can leave a deposit on the lens and damage some lens coatings.
Buy a 'wet' cd cleaning disc and use the fluid on a cotton bud starting from the center of the lens spiraling outwards, allow the fluid to evaporate before trying a cd.
An air duster aerosol can be useful to remove dust from under the lens.

Sorry to say but methylated spirit is not a good idea, it will remove anti scratch film on the lens and also the glue can dissolve used to hold the lens. Get CD Lens cleaner in liqui format , use the cooton in rotation to clean and then use a dry one to wipe the liquid off. If cleaning does not make any difference,check if the laser moves smoothly by rotating the gear by hand(must be switched off) if no change, laser or spindle motor may be faulty.

    Meths will not remove the coating which is anti-reflective and hydrophobic anti scratch. It could dissolve any surrounding adhesives so care should be taken.

You could try and clean the lens first but it sounds like you might need to get a new lens put in the CD player.

SOURCE: 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.

Is the CD player replaceable if we can get the correct CD replacement? I've tried to get the info from TEAC and they don't answer my email.


See if you can get the exact unit on the cheap on ebay. Teac obviously does not give a rat's a-- about your dilemma .

Your laser assembly is fubar and not repairable - not cost effective.
Time to move on after 9 years of use.

ALL DISKS SKIP ON MY SONY CDP - CX53...SOLUTION?


Hi,
If you have access to the lased head, gently wipe the lens with a stick with cotton moistened with isopropyl alcohol, or regular sanitary alcohol. Use circular movement. Then, gently shine the lens with dry cotton. DO NOT PRESS THE LENS !!!! If the issue persists, it's more complicated. You need to have access to the tiny trimmer below or near the laser head. Using a plastic screwdriver, rotate the trimmer clockwise about 2-3 degrees. Test playing. If track doesn't skip, hit the CD player's case with the finger, to check if track skips because of shock. If skips, rotate trimmer again 1-2 degr. Check again. If it doesn't work, try rotating counterclockwise. You need patience. Hope it is useful.

Cd skips


my best conclusion would be your player might be copyright protected to the point were you'd be able to hear the music but wouldnt be able to enjoy it.... different player or better quality CD-R's would be your best best. . .

Does the TEAC CD x60i with ipod capabilities include an alarm system that wake u up with music from the the ipod that u have pre select?


The unit doesn't have an alarm, but it does have a timer that allows you to set it turn on at a certain time and off at a certain time. Not exactly the same as an alarm clock.

Press the timer button until "timer" indicator and "on" appear in the display. Hour will flash. Press the skip button to change the hour then press the time button. Press skip to change the minutes, then timer button. You now change the off time the same way. The next push of the timer button has set the time. But, now use the skip button to select the source. Pressing the timer button this time will advance to the volume setting and again advance by the skip button. Timer is now set. Make sure your source is ready to play (station on tuner, CD has a disc or iPod is connected).

I have the same problem in a 10yr+ one. Am told that this is because the laser has gone weak. A complete CD mechanism is available from Acoustic Services - 01844 347600 for about £80 all in.

Durabrand model cd-968 mp3 anti-skip cd player Does skip...


I understand what you are saying. The Durabrand is very cheaply made and the ani-skip actually does not work near as long as stated by company. I would buy more expensive player or a different brand.
Look for 60 Second Anti-Skip if you want a good one.

Hi i would say try other cd recordable media but it sounds like your player has a tracking/laser pick-up problem or a laser mechanism fault,i would suggest you take it to the nearest repair agent to get them to look at it for you. regards. paul.
