Question about Sony CDX-T69 6-Disc CD Changer

Jumping Tracks when using "Next" control

My CD changer is in the boot of my Passat. It has developped a mind of its own when I want to skip a track. If I start on CD 1 Track 1 and then press the "next" control, it goes to Track 8, and if I press it again it jumps to Track 17. If I operate the "previous" control that works OK. I have tried removing and re-inserting the CD magazine, I have switched OFF and ON, and I have switched to FM radio and back to CD without any effect. It seems to have got into a "custom track selection" routine, but I can't see anything about this in either the Sony Manual, or the Passat In-Car Entertainment Manual. Has anyone any ideas ?

Re: Jumping Tracks when using "Next" control

Find the "reset" button (this button usual is very small) find it in front of the control panel, if the control panel is removable find "reset" button after removed

Hello i have a bmw with a 6 cd auto changer fitted in the boot i think its a factory installed alpine , but it skips when the car goes over a small bump . ive been told the laser has been damaged by...

Copied cd's can't damage this part. The pick-up of this changer can't be repaired, it should be replaced as a whole part. Also please check a position anti-shock system (two mechanical parts on sides of the unit). It must be set in the same position as the changer is installed.

Cd skips tracks

Check that the CD changer is mounted securely. If it is, the next step is to clean the CD changer with a cleaning kit.

What radio station do I need to be able to listen to cd?

All you are required to do is to insert the disc into the player or changer and then set the player to the CD function.
When the selected disc is loaded, then it would play and you can control the tracks.

Jvc ch-x350 12 disc cd changer. Loads cd but will not play it. reads: no disc and moves to the next cd and repeats. ??

If you are inserting non original cds, cds you make from your pc or cd copies sometimes they dont read, another reason is to make sure that you are inserting the disk with the correct side up, it will show you in the cd changer magazine slots. If none of this solves your problem then you have a defective cd mechanism and you need to replace or repair the changer. Very common problem with JVC Cd Changers, I used to replace them all the time and they tend to skip alot as well, get yourself a Pioneer if money is ok if not then follow my steps.

Good luck and dont forget to rate and vote for me if I helped you.

CD changer skips on bumps

There are two ways either the 90* or the 180*. If your having problems like skipping I'd suggest finding a place at the center of the car where there is less shock for the unit, like under your seat. I know changers have this 6 seconds or more memory so in case it skips, the first 6 sec ahead of the song is stored and play it to avoid the skip.

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.
