SOURCE: CD player TEAC DC-D350 When inserting

It must probably be a laser faulty, however it could also be derived from something that you can solve by cleaning.. The laser should be on only with cd inserted.

Teac Ag D9100 Receiver how to install a equalizer


I'd connect it between the "Tape 2 Monitor" jacks. On the TEAC, the "Record" jacks are audio OUT and the "Play" jacks are audio IN.

Connect the Record to the EQ's IN and the Play to the EQ's OUT.

Select your source (AM, FM, Phono, CD, etc. and when you select Tape 2 Mon, you'll pass the signal to the EQ to shape the sound of the source. With it unselected, you'll bypass the EQ.

Hi my traxdata cd900 recorder has just developed a problem. Ive been using maxell cdr's most were fine but lately:- a) optical failure error occasionally occurs b) will happily record approx 15 mins...


First to confirm if its a transport problem play a CD from track 1 to the last. If it is not getting stuck and smoothly plays till the end -- transport is OK. The same laser unit which reads the disc also writes. But when it writes the laser intensity is several times higher and the unit runs very hot. And old unit will start to misbehave due to the heat. TIME FOR REPLACING THE DRIVE UNIT.

CD tray opens and shuts fine. With CD loaded and shut the screen still says NO DISK. These are disks which have always played without problem on this CD player. Is there anything I can try before taking...


When the CD player loads properly and still reads as no disk this indicates that the player lens (Optical device which reads the disk information) Is either dirty or bad. The only option you have is to get a disk lens cleaner and run it on the system. Once you run it, it is supposed to work if the lens is not spoilt. Otherwise you will just have to replace the lens by taking it to a repairer.
Hope this solution has been helpful?

Does this recorder have its own amplifier?


Sure, the tape will play.

Copying tapes does not require an external amp, but LISTENING to them might. The A-4010 has a headphone jack so you're good to go with headphones alone if necessary.

To record, Connect the Output from the new deck to any Line Level Input on your recording device - (NOT PHONO).

If you can, set your record levels up in advance being careful not to have them too high if you're going digital as overloads are not handled well.

As with any old, rare or prized open-reel recording, avoid excessive transport handling of the tape, especially rewinding at high speed. Get yourself some Q-tips and isopropyl alcohol and clean the deck carefully, especially the capstan and idler wheel. Cheat the two tension levers manually and press Play. The capstan will engage the rubber idler. Clean the roller first with a moist Q-tip, being careful not to get strands caught up in the capstan (I'd hold the Q-tip around the 3-o'clock position on the idler), until you get nothing but a little black from it on a clean moist Q-tip. Then press Pause and the roller will retract but the capstan will still spin. Clean it with a fresh wet Q-tip until it is shiny and no more color comes off it.

Handle the reel without placing any inward pressure on the flanges as edge damage can occur.

Make your best stab at a transfer in as few tries as possible as the tape oxide and base are very old and will not tolerate repeated playbacks. Run the tape completely in one direction, flip it over, CLEAN THE DECK AGAIN, and play it back in the other direction (avoiding REWIND as it places a lot of stress on the tape and will probably leave the tape wound unevenly with edges sticking out all over the place. A normal speed playback should wrap the tape nice and tight and even for storage. Avoid exposing the tape to high humidity, dust or heat.

If you have access to a CD Recorder, I recommend making a full resolution Master copy on it and using the digital copy for any subsequent copying, ripping, editting, etc. Archive the original tape and make a digital copy of your end results, too. Good luck.

I'll make this offer to you. If you get it digitized and onto a CD I can probably reprocess it to clean up tape hiss and other problems inherent in 70's-era taping. Analog tape recording was my passion and still is, but I save everything digitally now.

On reaching track 10 to 12 on any cd playing on my Teca cd player it continually jumps tracks back and forward.


Hi derek55

Your unit will need a clean and service. The laser moves backwards and forwards on on 2 rails.These rails are notorious for the grease drying out and impeding the traverse of the mechanism. the solution is to strip the unit, remove the rails and clean them, reinsert with new graphite grease to prevent the problem reoccurring. In some cases it may be a faulty interconnect loom to the laser assembly, and in even fewer cases it may be a faulty spindle motor whose bearing tolerances have passed what the transport can cope with. Whilst in there, clean the laser lens with a cotton bud moistened with windex glass cleaner, then polish off any smears or residue left behind.

Dr Dray would like further assistance robotek!


no worries mate... firstly, remeber that mains voltages can kill and you should always disconnect the unit from the power before taking the covers of and work safe.
What we plan to do is to
  1. Clean dried grease from the worm drive gear that move the laser optics back and forth.
  2. Clean the laser lens
  3. lube the spindle motor bearings
You will need

cotton buds
methylated spirits
light oil
fine sewing needle

Using a cotton bud moistened with metho, clean the the old dried grease of the worm drive gear. Removing the laser transport from the unit is often the best way to do this. Be sure to not touch any of the connections to the laser itself if you unplug it from the main board. They are very electrostatic sensitive, and can be damaged by the static charge on your person. Be meticulous to clean it well. I use light oil(sewing machine) or if you have it, some graphite grease to then relube it. Apply a drop of oil to the top bearing of the spindle motor (use a fine needle with the oil in the eye to get under the platter to do this. Clean the laser lens with a moistened cotton bud and then polish with a dry one to be sure there is no residue.

Reassemble the unit and see how it goes. If you have any more dramas, a replacement laser assembly can be got and basically plugged into these units with no extra setup. I reccomend using a marantz original if you can . It is described as a cdm12.1 transport. Let me know how you go.

I have a marantz cd 67 se cd player.it doesn't always play cd's.it appears that it fails to recognise there is a cd in the cd drawer. also when it does actually play it often stops playing part way through...


Hi dr dray
Your player has a CDM12.1 laser transport fitted to it. They suffer a couple of problems that can be fixed that stop em from working so well. If you are handy with a screwdriver, then I can talk you through it.

Audiolab 8000CD Player Problem


This may be a problem with the sled motor. This is the motor that moves the optical assembly in and out along a rail. Try openint up the unit and cleaning off the rail with a dry cotton swab. Be careful not the leave any fibers on the rails. Also, while you are in there, clean the lens using another cotton swab and alcohol. Report back with your results.

My Panasonic CD player wont play any of my CD's and its a Panasonic CD Stereo System Model No.SC-ak610


Does it try to read the CD's are they spinning, if so it may need the laser lens cleaning. Or the rails that the little sledge that the laser moves backwards and forwards on may need cleaning and regreasing.
