Question about Kenwood CD-404 5-Disc CD Changer

Open Question

CD player won't turn on

I have a Kenwood CD-404 5 disc CD player. When I turn on the power button I can hear the disc changer turning a bit inside and then the screen on the unit says "Off", and that's it, it shuts down again. The entire process lasts about two seconds. I have the unit plugged directly into the the wall outlet. I have tried using the remote and the power button on the unit to turn the unit on. Any advice would be apprecited. Thanks.

If for some reason you would opt for user performed action, then pls try:
1. reset, unplug from the mains for at least an hour and try again;
2. check if there is a slide switch of some sort at the rear of the unit;
3. check if there may be a pinhole somewhere along the bottom of the loading tray where a blunted point safety pin maybe inserted;
4. open the top cover and manually eject the tray;
5. check internally if there is a mechanical problem such as a slipping/cut belt, gears that do not mesh correctly;
6. if the unit has been in use for some time, it may simply need cleaning and re-application of lubricant in the mechanical assembly.

The slider mechanism, depending on the age of the unit and , consists of the small chrome rail, a drive motor, a small gear assembly, and (in some units) a small belt that drives the slider unit via the motor. This small belt causes all sorts of problems. If the belt is broken or slipping, it can cause skipping, dropouts, or simply no start up at all. Also, if the belt breaks in the middle of the disc, the drive mechanism gets hair or dirt wrapped up into the gears, or the pick-up assembly doesn’t return to the start position (called home), the unit will (99% of the time) refuse to release the disc, causing it to become stuck inside the unit. There’s a little micro or leaf type switch located at home position that sometimes gets dirty or breaks and, causing this problem also.

SOURCE: Kenwood KDC-C662 6-Disc CD Changer - Error 'T99'

Hi....

Just accumulated dust can cause issues with the reader pickup
I'm not sure what T99 means but if you want to spend $35-90 to fix it,
it would be worth it.

The laser might be the culpert, be sure its clean by using a swab and a alcohol. If the laser is needed
it could cost approx $75 unless their using a Sony
which might be cheaper!

I cant hear the music very well... it is very faint and i have my speakers plugged in. how do i turn up the volume? i cant find any buttons to do so.


CD changers don't normally drive speakers (the lack of a volume control and speaker connections being a HUGE clue). What are you using for a speaker amplifier?

My cd doors wont open what can do.


Hi.

Try disconnecting power. Connect back and then turn the DVD on by using the button in the player (not the remote) while at the same time you keep pressing repeatedly the eject button on the player. You will need to keep pressing eject until the unit start loading the disk.

If that does not work, then the DVD must be disassembled undoing the screws holding the top cover in the chassis.Once disassembled there is usually a disk stuck inside the drive or a mechanical issue. The disk tray motor rarely fails.

Do not disassemble the player unless you have repair experience. Before proceeding check warranty status.Call Kenwood if you want to book a repair

Regards.

Ginko.

Kenwood CD-203 5-Disc CD Changer will not play CDs. It powers up and recognizes a CD within the slot, but it does not read the disc to begin playing.

Compatible units


Hi check if your changer connects to the amplifier with a single ribbon cable. if this is the case then the unit is not compatible with anything else.
If it has its own mains cable and a couple of RCA connectors on the rear, then anything should be fine

Tray will not open on my dv-605


Solution: Unplug power from wall. (Don't just turn off!) Next: Remove exterior case. Now gently turn the CD changer clockwise one position. Power up and try again.

I had this same problem after unit appeared to have froze up when unpacked from a shipping box. The CD changer had got off track and by gently moving the CD changer 1 position it fixed the problem. Works fine now.

Best of luck,

CD changer eats CDs


Sounds like its time to take the cover off (after unplugging the unit of course). Sorry to hear you are having a problem. Good luck.

Remove DISC010 error


If there is a disc in the changer (I guess it's in the tenth slot), try removing it, if it doesn't work by 'normal' means and you feel brave, try shaking the unit a bit. If it doesn't help or you don't feel like banging on it, you'll have to take it for a repair (they open the unit and extract the disc, they get jammed sometimes).
