Question about Philips AZ1303 Radio/CD Boombox

Open Question

Intermittent sound level on CD only

When playing a CD only the sound level may be low. Setting the handle down with a small tap will bring the sound level back to normal. i am not shure if this a bad solder connection somewhere in the unit or it is part of the CD player that has a problem. sound level on radio and Casette is fine and it happens on all Cds . Thanks for any help (ps there is enough torx screws with various lengths that you would need to buy a entire screwdriver set to take it apart.)

SOURCE: CD Player Does Not Read CDs

Hi As you describe the problem, there are three likely possiblities, either the laser lense is dirty, the laser is beginning to fail, or there is a dead spot developing in the spin motor. Cleaning is the first step, and the least expensive...If you have some electronics experience, they are not difficult to clean, but you must expose the laser to do it, and I don't want to advise someone to do that, and forget to unplug the unit. It's free laser eye surgery, but I doubt you would be happy with the results. I would advise you to call around to local repair shops, and see what they charge to check it out and/or clean it, and then descide if it is worth proceeding. Hopr this helps, good luck!

Minimum volume way to high

There may be a low/high switch which lowers or raises the base sound level before the volume control has any effect.

My sony cfs-w360boombox plays tape at high speed upon play, normal or high speed poition

there may be 2 possibles

1, the pinch roller is not going down and staying in the fixed when during playback, easy way to check power down the unit, press play and see if it looks firm, it will push back, if working right

if its loose, it may well have come off a little sping, and may well be an easy ish fix, by someone who know about cassette decks,

2, the speed adjustment has failed, there will be an internal speed control, which keeps the playback at a correct speed, if this has failed it may be fixable, but only by someone who can take it to bits and remove and solder a new one in, and they are very small and Sony items i have had have failed on speed control! too for me its a junker box

good luck

No sound from cd player

the laser lens needs cleaned most likely, you can purchace a cleaning disk, or take the unit apart and used a eyeglasses cloth and very gently wipe the lens clean. the lens will be very small and near the motor that spins the cd. when wiping it off, wipe in one direction only. if that doesnt work then the laser has become weak or has quit working

CD player intermittently will not read track when I skip to another track

This might not be a problem with your CD player but with your CD. To check this, if it's easy for you, make a copy of your CD and try it. If the problem is fixed then it was a problem with your CD. If it's not fixed then the problem is with your CD player. Maybe the CD lens needs to be changed or be calibrated by a service technician.

Unfortanatly, this is why Emerson only warranties these for 90 days, but I have heard and recommend that you contact Emerson and tell them you did not think that their product would break down after a mear 90 days and a lot of times, they will send you a new one, if you bug them enough. There should be a contact number in the owners manual. If you do not have the owners manual, go to: There is a contact link there. By the way, the problem you are having is a bad spindle motor or the laser optics are bad. Have you tried to clean the small laser lens off yet with a cotton swap and some good 90% or better alcohol? Good Luck

Sunken Volume 'stick'

you have to take out about 22 screws/allenkeys, take off the end handle/sub covers, and split the JVC in half. be careful no to pull any internal wires. the volume stick will then just push through. and you'll need a 10mm nut to fix it in place, or the nut that came off of it. i fixed mine the other day hope this helps
