Cd player gets "stuck"

I've had this unit 8-10 years and has worked flawlessly til now. It has been used many hours. It will play the 1st 7-8-1l songs just fine. Then it will suddenly stop and "get stuck on a note" forever. Like when the needle got stuck on the old lp records. I can bypass it but it won't be long before it will do it again. It doesn't matter what cd is playing. Any thoughts on how to fix this problem would be appreciated.

Built up dirt particles like dust or smoke on the lense can cause this. Buy a cleaning kit with a disc that has brushes that you dab with a small amount of alcohol which spins in the CD player and cleans the lens.

Re: cd player gets "stuck"

Does it stop on the same position always? on the same track? even when changing cd, when it fails will it be on the same position always? if so, you have a mechanical cleaning to do only.

Is the CD player replaceable if we can get the correct CD replacement? I've tried to get the info from TEAC and they don't answer my email.

See if you can get the exact unit on the cheap on ebay. Teac obviously does not give a rat's a-- about your dilemma .

Your laser assembly is fubar and not repairable - not cost effective.
Time to move on after 9 years of use.

Cd is stuck inside the player. I moved the unit when decorating and now the unit will not play any cds and there is one stuck inside. I removed the casing to look inside but got scared off when I saw all...

It is safe (except for the lead solder) as long as the unit is not powered ON.
There is a "pin hole" on the front of the CD tray.
With power OFF, use a stylus (straightened-out paperclip) to push the mechanical eject button inside the pin hole. Carefully use enough force to push the CD tray out.

CD's won't move...lights flash and CD's seem to be stuck in hold.

This usually means you have a CD stuck. I have had this player for over 10 years and have always just removed the case screws lifted the top off and removed the c\CD that is out of place (two in one slot for example) put it back together and it works fine. Hasn't really happened over 3 times. My kids got older!

B&O Beosound 1

Hi, It may be that the brushes on the CD spindle motor are getting dirty. A relatively easy fix, IF you know how to open a Beosound 1 without causing damage. I used to work in a B&O Authorized Service Center, and I suggest contacting the one nearest you first for an estimate. Most "normal" shops are most likely not prepared to handle the sometimes complex disassembly/reassembly issues.

Cd-player (recordable) stops at about track 4 on every CD I play


Based on your post it would seem that the lens get stuck when moving along the slider at about the same position. You can try opening the unit and performing a manual clean and re-application of any thin lubricant. Additionally you can use a can of compressed air to blow accumulated dust and foreign debris inside the unit. The slider would be the small rod encircled in yellow dotted lines.


Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Cd tray mechanics

It can be repaired but in all of my years in consumer repair, I dread the CD/DVD tray alignments the worst.

There are many things involved in getting them to operate without fail. Using the mfgs documentation you can get them up and running but most of the time they failed because something is amiss to begin with. So you spend an hour getting everything setup and it will work once or twice but them fail. Only to find out that a location sensor is bad or a gear is missing a tooth....
