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

regards
Graeme

SOURCE: Replacement unit for hifi player

I work at a service center in the U.S. and I have a lot of trouble getting any Phillips parts. My service center has given up on Phillips, we have had too many problems with them. Sorry to give you this bad news. You might want to look on ebay for one with a disc loading problem or some other problem not related to the cd player. Sometimes you can find them cheap. The laser would cost you in the range of $50 to $75 US if you can find one.

Good luck,

Dave

SOURCE: i have installed a new

Laser assemblies are shipped with a shorting solder bubble. Did you remove it before installation? If not, then the laser is effectively disabled and won't read anything.

Connect tv to hifi speakers


It doesn't lokk like your TV has an analog out for your Kenwood system. It might have an optical out but unless the Kenwood has optical in then you'll need to upgrade to a Home theater system with HDMI.

What does utoc error mean on a Kenwood mini disc player


Well, what it means is

TOC errors often mean the recording head/optical block is cooked. A cleaner might work, but often it's the end of the MDR.

Are you sure the battery is correctly (fully) charged? Try removing the battery and running on (only) the charger.

try cleaning the lens with a minidisc lens cleaner.

open the unit and check the laser position - it should be all the way to the left. that's where it should start to read the disk.

What cables do i need to connect to a t.v. to get surround sound please


It depends what the source of the sound is. If you are using a dvd player or hifi/dvd combo that has surround, dobly pro logic, surround simulation or cinema sound...it will have HDMI, Optical, Digital outputs. The newer items use the HDMI to send Audio and Visual signals to the Hifi. If not...you will either have to do the simulation on your hifi if it has that feature. You can also use the SPDiF or Optical cable from your source to the hifi. If all that is missing...the standard 3-way RCA cable (Yellow,Red and Black) will do where yellow is video and the red and black is the stereo source of sound.

CD player will not read disks


The problem is in the laser pickup assembly, over time the laser becomes weaker until it can no longer read the disc, the whole assembly must be replaced since individual parts are not an option, but first! buy a CD cleaning kit and follow the instructions, sometimes this will give more life to the player.

When I insert myDVD disc, the screen shows loading for a minute or so--then reads incorrect disc and bad on the player. This is a disc I have used before and has the label that shows it is the disc this...


Hi,
It seems that optical laser block gets fail to read data on disc and possible cause could be dirty/ clogged lens or optical laser block failure.
Put lens cleaning disc in unit to clean optical lens and check DVD playback, if that does not solve the issue then optical laser block would be defective and requires replacement that would cost approx new player price.
Hope these info will help.
Thanks.

I have a mini hifi sony mhc dx50 the 3 disc changer doesnt work it wont play any cds and says there is no cd in it when there is any ideas?


It may be a dirty laser lens, or the laser is worn enough that is can't read the discs any more. There are cleaning CDs available, but I haven't found them to work very well most of the time. The most effective way is to clean the lens with a cotton swab moistened with optical cleaning liquid. That means opening the unit to get to the lens, of course, and some Sonys are harder than others. It's not an impossible task, though.

If the player still doesn't read discs after cleaning the lens, the pickup probably is bad. There are other possible causes, but the pickup is the most common. Thanks for asking on Fixya!
