Question about Pioneer PD-M406 6-Disc CD Changer

1 Answer

Will not recognize CDs

My PD-M406 takes CDs in as it should, and then takes them right back out without playing them. It will go through all 6 CDs that way and then display "no disc".

My Pioneer PD-M403 will not play computer made CDs. Why won't they play?


Hello,

incompatibility is the cause of the problem. There is nothing wrong with both your player and the computer made CD's, they are not just clicking with each other.

The Pioneer PD-M403 player is also an old model, this could cause the problem.

There is not settings whatsoever that you can use ti solve this problem.

Take care.

CDs change without playing. Installed new motor and starts to spin and stops, and cycles through the cartridge.


Check to see if the laser lens is still on the laser!
If not see if its in unit and glue back on with radio/tv cement(don't super glue)! If don't work replace the laser.

Turned on my Pioneer PD M501 one day and it would not play. Disc tray will not retract into cartridge and cartridge will not eject.


Sometimes the little ball bearings that keep the cart trays separated come out causing tray jams.
Make sure your tray retracts all the way into the player flush with the face plate, gently push it in while retracting for those occasional no-read situations. (Also for Denon that takes these same carts). Also note that the CDs go in the Upside Down position.

I have a Pioneer PDM450. It will scan each of the


A dirty lens on the laser of the CD player or 6 dirty discs. Since it is not likely 6 dirty discs, you have nothing to loose by taking the screws off the back and sides to remove the top cover and try to find the lens. Get a can of "compressed air" and spray it all over the inside of the unit to romove dust bunnies as you work. Take digital photos as you go so you remember how to put it back together.

Good luck, have fun and look at all the neat gears and little motors this thing uses to open the door, close the door, spin the disc, ...

Its really amazing how many parts are in these things for the price they charge these days.

Alternatively, you can bring it in to a local electronics repair shop but it will likely cost you as much as a new unit.

- Post a note to let us know what you decided to do.

CD's are skipping when playing


Sounds like the laser lens is dirty or out of focus. You can take it apart and try cleaning the lens with a soft cloth and see it that works. If the focus is out of adjustment, that takes alot of patience and time. Never look directly at the laser with the case open. On the bottom or side of the laser lens, there are two small box looking gadgets about 1/4" square with tiny screw type adjusters in the center of them. These are potentiometers, they can develop dirty or burned spots over a period of time. Turning them slightly can give you better performance. If I remember right, one of the pots is for width and the other for height of the laser focus. You can identify them by the small ribbon cables that run to them. Try a very small turn on one and try playing the dvd. Mark with a marker a straight line across the pot and board to know where you started, believe me it helps. This can take quite a while and may or may not work. I find this to be the biggest fault with most dvd and cd players. I have fixed many this way. By the way, I use a jewelers screwdriver. They have small plastic ones for these, but they are hard to come by. Good luck.

Cd changer home stereo pioneer system


pioneer cd players have the common problem of losing their laser lens due to the glue that holds it in place going brittle over time. try shaking the player from side to side and upside down to see if you can hear the lens rattling about. if you recover the lens, very carefully slot it back in place and apply a tiny drop of glue (NOT SUPERGLUE) to the outside edge of the lens taking care not to get any on the focus area and leave to dry. all should be well after this. i find UHU GLUE in the yellow tubes do a lasting fix but don't use SUPERGLUE as the fumes will coat the lens.

hope this helps?
