Cambridge Soundworks...MusicWorks Audio Control Center

I have one of the MusicWorks Simple Source Audio Control Centers from Cambridge Soundworks (CSW). This system was given to me. The top load CD lid is a "soft touch" open/close. There is a small, square, spring loaded mechanism with two pincher like prongs mounted in the base. This mechanism holds a single prong from the CD player lid. The part simply pos out of the base and is not connected electrically to anything. It appears to be a lid close/hold mechanism only. I have asked CSW on how I can get one of these parts to replace mine, which is broken, and not allowing the CD door to stay closed. CSW directed me to send it to them to repair as "the part is not available". How can they repair it if the part is not available. I think it is, but need to find out what it's called and where I can find it. I'm sure the part is only a few dollars, and certainly a lot less than sending it to CSW with freight and automatic bench charges. Can anyone help?

SOURCE: Dim display on Cambridge Soundworks 88CD

I can't find a manual for this but my guess would be there is a setting for the Display to dim it at all times unless you touch a control.

Cambridge SoundWorks 765i does not turn on. The light on the power supply is on.

You have a power supply issue and that explains the dead silence. You might want to check the PS area for swollen or leaky caps, a common source of trouble.. Or a broken solid state device. Otherwise .................................Shopping?

I have upgraded to Windows 7 and also a new Gigabyte GA-H61M-D2-B3 Motherboard. 4GB DDR Ram I have plugged my Cambridge Soundworks SW320 in but I only get some sound, eg all music and back ground sound is...

Gigabyte GA-H61M-D2-B3 Motherboard supports 2/4/5.1/7.1-channel HD audio, whereas Cambridge Soundworks SW320 is 2.1 (only). Hence, the PC should be configured to provide 2.1 Channel output. The audio of your system may be configured to 2.1. So, please check the Realtec Audio sound manager/ configuration from the control panel or from tray (near clock) and set it to 2.1 (2 Channel Stereo Output).
Moreover, audio on your PC may be running on default HD Audio Drivers. So, you may also download/ install the latest drivers for Gigabyte GA-H61M-D2-B3 Motherboard.
(Refer to download section at the bottom of the page). After installing audio drivers, you would be able to configure the audio.

Hope it helps! Good Luck! Thanks for using Fixya!

Fluctuation in sound output on Cambridge Soundworks 5.1 speakers

Hi Paulus
A lot brand of speakers, like Sound Blasters, Logitech, Cambridge, has this (strange) kind of volume problem, sometimes, is the resistor, in the volume control, sometimes in the modulator for the board on the sound speakers, Subwofer.
I use a general tip is let the volume in one setting and don't move in the intermediate low volume say....9 .
from other thing, be change the speakers.
