SOURCE: CD player skips on early tracks

The lens assembly in a CD player glides along on a two rail track, kinda like a railroad track except tubular. The lens carriage is moved over this track by a small motor driving a worm gear. (Think long, tubular and spiral). If the rail tracks or the worm gear dry up or have dust accumulating on them, this could be the cause. Normally they have a light gear oil or lithium grease on them to keep them lubricated.

this player uses a philips mechanism, spindle motor failure is very common on these mechanisms, yours may be on its way out. take the lid off and insert a cd and if you can hear the laser trying to read the cd without it spinning, it's definately the spindle motor.

SOURCE: The CD player will no longer recognize or play

I have the c521i with similar problem. It will play discs most of the time and sometimes can go for an hour or more before hanging up. Sometimes the disc is spinning and the laser is moving up and down (clicking) trying to read data. Sometimes the disc will stop spinning.
The replacement laser mechanism is a Sony KSS-213C and can be found by a few resellers on ebay for between $10 - 26, and also online at stores like MCM Electronics. This assembly has the laser head, gears, everything that needs to be replaced. I should get mine in the next few days. I also bought the 16 pin flex ribbon cable that is about 8 inches long that connects from the laser and goes into the circuit board. With basic DIY skills, this is a simple fix. A little care and effort is required on the laser assembly. I am told this will fix and will report back as soon as I get it installed and can verify it works.

CD sounds jumpy, missing segments of the song then the CD resumes. Cleaned CD's but it continues to happen.


The problem is in the laser pickup assembly, overtime the laser becomes weaker until it can no longer track the disc properly. The only option is replace the assembly, "very expensive" or purchase a new cd changer, "much cheaper option"

Arcam CD73 CD Player. CD player works fine but sound cuts out.


I too had this problem and was resigned to having the laser mech replaced.............BUT! i opened up my unit (it was long out of warranty) and was suprised at the amount of lubricant on the cog that drives the laser and the track upon which it runs.most of the grease had been pushed to either end of it's travel and as a consequence my unit would cut out particularly at the start and end of CD's as the laser struggled to move and track the disc as it should. Since removing this excess lubricant (with a dry toothbrush) i have enjoyed over six months of trouble free listening. From searching online forums it would seem that many people have experienced similar problems with this transport - a Sony KSM213CCM - and have replaced the entire mech! it would appear that someone a the factory has been a little over enthusiastic with the lubricant! Hope this fix is of help
