CD Player Skipping And Spinning Backwards!

Hello. I have a Micromega Leader II CD player which uses a Phillips swingarm transport. For a few years now the player has often been reluctant to start playing the disk but it has now deteriorated. When play is pressed the disk will spin, then the lazer head will flick back violently against the rear of its slot and the disk will spin at high speed in reverse! If and when I does start to play it starts to distort and skip towards the end of the disk and going to the next track will cause the flick/spin trick to be repeated. I have no idea what could cause this bizarre behaviour. I like the player so would be keen to fix it. Any help would be gratefully received. Thank you.

Hi,

This could be a possible worn laser pick-up problem.

SOURCE: player stuck in scan mode

Hi...

Unplug it from the wall...give it a couple minutes. Try playing a CD again (using manual controls) If that works , your remote might be the issue.

If you bought the thing new you paid good $$ for it.

It's worth having it looked at by a Pro.

SOURCE: used 200 cd player keeps skipping

I just fixed this using Scarthhouse's solution of removing the sensor assembly, cog, and squeezing the rack (of the rack and pinion) together (I squeezed the metal bar upwards). I'm not even electronically-inclined, so I'm ecstatic that this fixed the used 300 Sony disk player I just purchased.

SOURCE: 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.

Kenwood portable cd player dpc-741 skips.


Hello

The skipping happens because the lens is weak,to solve this problem open the cd player so you can see the lens.Clean the lens with cotton wool dabbed in a little methylated spirit(wipe carefully).This should stop the skipping.

If the skipping continues then the lens is too weak to play CD's so it is best that you change the lens of your CD player.

CD Player Skipping And Spinning Backwards!


Clean laser first. Near the laser there will 2 / 3 adjustable pots. Mark location on them all first. Pick one (then another) move a little left or right and see if you can get it working. If all fails return them to original positions nothing but time lost.

I have a micromega stage 5 and the disc is jittering in the drive, i.e not spinning any idea's?


Had the same problem I think. When I would load a disc after a few seconds the unit would read no disc. I opened the unit and removed the transport and there is a board under the laser unit, on that board there is an adjustable pot so I plugged the module to the main board and powered the unit up. I adjusted the pot then sat a cd on it until I found a setting that worked. I hope this helps. I am not sure of your ability. Something to remmember is you can only fix it or break it.

CD Player stopped working


Probably there is dust on the lens. My CD player (different brand) did the same. I opened the case and cleaned the lens with a photo camera brush (VERY gently). Now it works fine.

If you cannot / do not want to open the device to access the lens, you may want to buy a cleaning CD.

Remove and replace the graphite grease from the laser transport worm gear assembly (use the correct Technics stuff), replace the worm gear drive belt, and ensure that the tension spring on the C-shaped plastic piece that rides the gear is OK

Cd player skipping


The DVD transport rides on chrome rails. These get dust and stuff on them and wont allow the optics to track.

If you dare, open the unit UNPLUGGED from the AC.
See if you can get at those rails easily. clean with WD40 on a swab. clean with a new swab . then a couple drops of mystery oil on a swab and run down the rails over and under.
You must be VERY gentle if you clean the lens with isopropyl

Marantz CD48 - CD spins backwards


Check the small signal transistors BC338 and BC328, they're under the transport mech and will be near where the spindle motor plugs in to the PCB.
One of the transistors acts as a brake which momentarily puts the motor in reverse polarity to stop the CD rotating during 'stop' or 'open tray' modes. The reason the CD is spinning backwards is that the transistor which drives the spindle motor forwards during playback is faulty and is triggering the braking transistor hence spinning backwards.
The transistors should be 'BC328-25' / 'BC338-25' (25v)
Replace these and all should be well.

Hope this helps
