Question about Nakamichi MB-8 5-Disc CD Player

Open Question

Nakamichi cd changer MB 1S skips periodically.

My 13 year old Nakamichi 7 cd changer MB1s skips, and I am told there are no more parts available. Can this be cleaned or adjusted? Anyone know of a comparable unit to put in my home stereo system?

I feel your pain......and did extensive research on the internet.....Google "LX470, CD, err3" or "Nakamichi, CD, err3".

Take a look at this excellent explanation of how to dismantle and remove the head unit and retreive the jammed discs. I have used it and fished out three discs, but the CD Player still shows ERR3. An hour of work, so be prepared.

This is a site that provides repair services once you get the head unit out. http://www.carstereohelp.com/lexus.htm
"Six CD changer, Err message in display, will not play CD's, will not eject or accept CD's. Before repair, disconnect one of the car battery terminals for several minutes. This acts as a reset and may bring the changer back to working conditions. Otherwise, repair rate $385."

The Lexus dealer wants $750 to replace with a refurbished unit. Don't go down that route. Read these nightmare stories.

Don't buy a stray unit off of ebay, it is probably jammed or broken with the ERR3 meesage too!

If the home repair method doesn't work, then it will be better to just upgrade to a new head unit. I am buying a Jensen VM9215HD to get a multimedia system with all the trimmings and full iPod control for $460. Available on ebay or online stores. I'll install the unit myself, but you can get the unit and the job done at a local auto sound store for under $1000.

Good luck,

SOURCE: Nakamichi MB-70 CD player - cannot get cd to eject

Having just removed three discs from an identical unit which also jammed, I will say how easy that was. I do not know if the unit will now function when reinstalled in the vehicle.

Remove the unit from its mounts, remove the outer "frame" (if fitted), remove the two #2 phillips pan head screws from the sides holding the face to the chassis, remove the four #0 phillips screws (black, flat head) from the top and bottom of the face plate.

Slide the face plate off and carefully handle it while tethered by its ribbon wire.

Turing the unit upside down, peer into the opening and observe the disc, gently press the carriage away from the top of the unit (now the bottom, as it is inverted) and allow the disc to be freed, simply pull the disc out.

If there are multiple discs stuck inside, oberve the large metal gear just inside, carefully rotate the gear to actuate the loading mechanism as needed to release addtional discs.

Sony CX355 skipping Fix


I have a Sony 300 disc changer that started randomly skipping tracks after it was 8 or 9 years old.
I tried cleaning it, no change.
I opened it up and found an adjustment screw on the reading lens carriage.
Note: It is very hard to see
It rotates approx 1 turn from stop to stop. It was centered from the factory.
I rotated it counterclockwise 1/2 turn, and it got worse.
I rotated it clockwise 1/2 turn, and it is fixed. It hasn't skipped a beat since.

I have a DP-R6080 or DP-R5080 5 cd changer player. Its probably 10 years old or so but recently the CD have begun to skip. Its not the CD because the new ones skip and they play fine on a single player...


The trouble lies in the laser pickup assembly, the only option you can try is buy CD cleaning kit and follow the instructions, the kit will remove any dirt that might have collected on the laser lens, If it works you will get more usable time out of the machine. The fact that you got 10 years is much better than the average, overtime the laser gets weaker until it can not track properly, so! if the cleaning fails it is far cheaper to replace than to repair.

3 disc Phillips cd player sometimes skips. It is


At some time in its life, the laser that reads the CD starts to get too weak to operate reliably. That's probably what's happening here. Unlike mechanical parts that can be inspected for wear, electronic parts tend to work fine one day, then the next, poof. The laser assembly is replaceable if you can locate the part and find someone to install it. An electronic service shop could give an estimate for repair. If you can provide the full model number, I'll see if I can find the part number.

I contacted a friend who operates a sterio shop and was convinced that fifteen years of bouncing up and down has made the laser unable to focus and read the info on the disks and the solution is to buy another one . Thanks for you're interest.

Cd's always skip


You have done well for 10 years laser changes are in order

When a cd skips it is due to laser diode becoming weak over time not producing an original beam causing focus prolbems ,hence skipping discs

Skipping yamaha 765


I have a very similar type unit, a Nakamichi CDC-3 that had the same problem. I found this link....

http://repairfaq.ece.drexel.edu/REPAIR/F_cdfaq6.html#CDFAQ_001

I spent about two hours fixing mine. The sled mechanism was binding somehow, causing random skipping. The first 10 minutes was getting it apart and figuring what was wrong, the remainder was spent getting all those tiny parts back in the proper place.

Look up the exact symptom before going at it (probably long skips). Set aside a long slow lazy day with nothing to do. DO NOT drink too much coffee, you will be handling tiny parts that go in tedious locations, so you don't need caffeine jitters adding to your misery. Take your time and be careful. It's well worth it. Mine plays like a new one.
