Question about Audio Players & Recorders
Really like this system but can't figure out why. When the problem first started, it would play 3 or 4 songs and then stop or skip back to the first song. Tried today (after months of simply not using the CD player) and during first song it keeps skipping back to the beginning. This is otherwise a really great little system for my use. Not thinking it is age related, as it started after a couple years of relatively little use. Thanks for any help.
Sorry but this unit has a problem with the tracking servo. The problem could be an alighnment, or a bad componet such as the laser assembly, tracking motor or tracking driver IC, with all of these problems the unit will need to come out of the vehicle. Good Luck

I have a cdf-e75 that had a similar problem, although the red power light was dim for all functions. (the radio, tape and cd)
After opening up the unit and inspecting, I found one of the pins on the printed circuit board for the power had broken away from the solder. (it is a tiny board where the AC connector is soldered to) Seems in my unit there is nothing securing the molded AC connecter to the plastic case except the the printed circuit board it is soldered to-It is a poor design; perhaps your is the same? I suspect over time pushing the AC cord into the back of the player may have broke the connection? Anyway, I soldered the connection and I have never had any additional problems as the unit has worked fine since.
Don't know if this helps, but my suggestion would be to open the unit and inspect the pin connections on the AC printed circuit board to see if any have a loose/broken connection. ( Mine was not noticible with the naked eye as I had to use a magnifying lens and a bright light. Hope this might help.

sounds like the stop button is getting a crossover signal
the CD player ALWAYS has vibration... (impossible to make a perfect balanced spinning mechanism...) and this could allow a slight vibration to affect the machine... age making it more prominent and thus the delay in occurance
but more likely the Capacitor has gone bad (13 years is a very good life for the small charge holders) allowing the voltage to go where it isn't supposed to go
assuming you are a DIY guy then trace the path for the stop button and check the capacitors and resistors in the area
usually a connection is make or break but it could have a signal pull resistor with a capacitor to stop direct current.. if so, that is the first capacitor to check... also good news in this case... the capacitor that fits with a pull up/down switch isn't very critical in it's specs so a close match should be fine

SOURCE: CD player skips
Try cleaning the lens. If you can see the lens when you open it to put a cd in, you can clean the lens yourself with a q-tip. Use a very small amount of alcohol or windex, just enough to make the tip of the q-tip moist, and rub it on the glass lens in a circular motion. then use the dry end of the q-tip to dry it off. You can then try another cd and see if it plays good. If so, you are good to go, if not, you probably need a new laser pick up. If it needs a new laser, you may want to just buy a new boombox. The repair will most likely cost as much or more than a new boombox would.
If you are not able to see the lens and clean it yourself, try using a cleaning disc. They do not work as good, but they can help. You run it for about 20 seconds, or whatever the directions state. Then give it another try, see if it plays better.
Those are the only reasonable steps for an end user who is not experienced with repairing these type of units. anything else you may end up trying could just cause more damage to the unit, if you are not experienced with electronic repairs.
I hope this helps, let me know if you need more help.
