Question about Audio Players & Recorders

Open Question

I have a Harman-Kardon FL8380 5 Dics CD changer. The tray did not return all the way and was sticking out about 1/4". I removed the entire table and tray. Boy, what a job trying to re-align the spindle wheels. I do not think I have it aligned properly. Any thoughts on how to do this? I know the spindles have (for lack of terminology) spring loaded arms so that the bottom spindle when it is turning the spring loaded arms will not allow the wheel to only rotate so farm, which controls when the CD is moved in the unit that plays the CD. When I turn the unit on, the tray opens by its self and then returns closed. The front panel indicates "Disc" and flashes. Then the tray opens again after about 10 secs. And the process starts all over again. It is a Harman-Kardon FL8380. HELP!

Followup on higlider's problem. Now it has to be turned on ten times before it stays on. Email from Harman Kardon only suggests taking it to an authorized repair shop. It is clear that it is not from speaker short or overheating, because it only happens when the rcvr is cold.

SOURCE: how do you fix a scuff mark on a harman kardon tuner

unfortunately not, the fascias are generally spray painted plastic. The only decent solution is to replace the whole fascia. A dodgy way would be to mask off the area and respray a symmetrical part of it to try and not look like a repair. Short of that, you may just live with it.

The loading mechanism is out of timing. This needs to be taken apart and reassembled. I'll try and locate the instructions for this tonight.

SOURCE: We have the RCA RS2767i

Let me respond with a possible solution although I'd bet that both of you already tried these.

The reason I checked into this is because I'm looking for a new mini system. I happen to be at Target and they only had 2 models - this one and a SONY. I certainly didn't want to buy the RCA given these problems, so I asked the salesperson, who seemed to have some knowlege.

As far as opening the tray on top, there is a button to push right under the tray. The button has an icon of a triangle on it. This seems to be somewhat of a standard icon for opening the tray or ejecting a CD (my car's CD has the same icon for ejecting a CD).

As far as only being able to get 3 CD's out, there is another button under the tray marked "disc skip". This rotates the tray. When you open the tray, you can only get to 3 of the CD's. When you push disk skip, it rotates the tray one position, so you can get the 4th one out. Another push and now you can get the 5th one.

Sometimes my CD changer doesn't shuffle the disks. If I only have 1 CD or DVD in it and push the tray open button, the disk stays in the unit and the tray revolves to an intermediate position. I push the button to put the tray back and try disc skip; that usually works.

If your problems are not solved per above, then I definitely do NOT want to get this.

"CRD20"

A simple web search, which you could do yourself, for "Harman Kardon CDR 20 manual" finds several.

Look for "no audio" in the manual. It occurs twice.

The drawer in our Harman-Kardon HD 950 CD player won't go all the way in. It gets to the point where there's about an inch sticking out, then re-opens and tries again. This is a fairly new unit. Is there...


It turned out that a CD had slid past the drawer and into the case of the CD player. Once I removed it everything was fine. I should point out that mine is *not* a 5-disc drive, but a single-disc drive, model HD 950.

Describe your Harman Kardon CDR30 2-Disc CD Recorder Problem It's a CDR26 and neither of the drawers will open.


With mine, it was the drive belts for the cd drawers, which were stretched and rigid. Open the case. Remove the 4 screws that hold down each cd drive. Push the drives out enough so you can pull the silver facing off the sliding try by pulling it up. Now you can lift out the cd drives, removing all the connectors as you go. Flip the white plastic slider underneath each drive and you can mechanically open the slide tray. This reveals the little motor and rubber pulley belt that operates the slide tray. If the belts are broken, perished, rigid or something, get something similar from your local electronics parts store (a couple of bucks each belt), and reassemble.

Harman Kardon FL8350 CD Changer


try lifting the left side of the player, I tried that last night, and it behaves different, in horizontal mode it tries to load each disc before it finds that there is no disc, but when tilted it just scans the slot (with som optical sensor) and finds the slot empty without loading the disc
