Re: xl-hp515

Wait a bit... it will happen with all the other decks, too. we had this happen and the first time the suggestion from the Sharp folks worked. We left the unit unplugged overnight to reset the electronics (and of course all the station presets, etc.) now, we have it happening again and all 5 drawers are out. the "read TOC" then report "no disk". i will try the lens cleaner but if that doesn't work, we will take it to a repair shop. our unit is actually almost 3 years old so it is past the extended two year warranty, but still it is too soon for it to be acting up. i hate cheaply made stuff like this! good luck.

RCA RS2664 Stereo wont play CD in any of the trays but seems to try to scan to play.

The laser pickup unit's lens may be dirty or dusty. Just put a lens cleaning disc into the tray, and play it at least three times, by ejecting the disc each time, and reinsert in in to. The lens cleaning disc can be bought from most of the electronic spare part selling shops at your town, and won't cost more. If it dose not help you, the laser pickup unit of your RCA device should be replaced with same type and number. OK.

I just plugged a turntable into the accessory jacks on my Sharp XL-HP515 so that I can play some of my old LP's. I've got to turn the volume up all the way to hear it and it's still very quiet. Any idea...

If you're using an old-school turntable that doesn't contain a phono preamp that will happen.

A traditional turntable requires a Phono preamp inline with it to PRE amplify and frequency-balance the minute signal produced by it's cartridge for later amplification by a power amp. Most stereo receivers and preamps have Phono connections and internal preamplification strictly for that purpose.

Recent AV Receivers generally do not.

The result would be very low, tinny sound.

If so, you need to get an external Phono Preamplifier.

Not reading cd

HI.This will occur when the optical assembly becomes unstable. this ((Whole One Piece)), assembly incorporates the spin/load motor, optics housing /arm, tracking device and tracking rail. This is connected to the loading dock assembly. This 'NO Disc' or CD NOT PLAYABLE, code is the result of a failed or burned out lens. It is possible that you have a dirty lens cap. you can try using a cleaning disk in this case to confirm actual lens failure. if the cleaning doesn't restore normal reading capabilities, this will confirm my diagnosis.

You will need to have the optical assembly replaced in this case. once replaced, your unit will be able to read and track once more.

CD not working propely

"No disk" is about as fatal a CD read error as ther is. Before we assume the player is at fault let's look at our media. A CD should be handled and cared for like any opitical device. Dirt, fingerprints and scratches are tolerated somewhat but the CD standard isn't impervious to problems.

Do you get any constant results with any CD, say one that always works vs one that never works? Compare them visually for problems on the one that doesn't. I use a clean soft cloth with glass cleaner to clean my media.

This is the entire troubleshooting section for the unit.

Care of CDs
When a CD becomes dirty, wipe it from the center out with a
cleaning cloth. After playing a CD, store it in its case. Do
not keep it in hot or humid places.

If your unit fails to perform properly, check the following guide
and the relevant sections of the Operating Instructions.
There is no sound.
•Are the speakers and AC power cord connected properly?
The unit shut off suddenly.
•Possibly a short circuit in the speaker terminals.
Disconnect the AC power cord from the AC power outlet
and re-connect the speaker cords correctly.
The unit blacks out when the unit is turned off.
•Is ECO mode set to on?
Erroneous display.
•Reset the unit.
Poor radio reception.
•Check antenna connection. Adjust the antenna to find the
best reception.
•Move unit and antenna away from other electric appliances
and cords.
The tape does not run.
•Is the deck in pause?
Poor tape sound.
•Check for dirty heads. Clean them if needed.
•Use type I (normal) tapes.
Cannot record.
•Is the erasure prevention tab of the tape broken off? If so,
cover the detection slot with adhesive tape.
The CD player works poorly.
•Is the disc correctly loaded?
•Is the disc dirty?
•Is the lens affected by condensation? If so, wait
approximately one hour and try again.
Resetting the unit
If an unusual condition occurs in the display window or the
cassette deck, reset the unit as follows:
1 Press POWER to turn off the power.
If the power cannot be turned off, disconnect the AC power
cord, then plug it in again.
2 Hold down s and press POWER.
Everything stored in memory after purchase is cleared.
Moisture may form on the CD pickup lens when:
•The unit is moved from a cold spot to a warm spot
•The heating system has just been turned on
•The unit is used in a very humid room
•The unit is cooled by an air conditioner
When this unit has condensation inside, it may not function
normally. Should this occur, leave the unit for a few hours,
then try to operate again.

Will not play , loud clicking noise. No lights nothing.

Ther clicking is probably coming from a relay and it is cycling because either the power supply itself or possibly an audio output power module has failed, the latter will overload the power supply so it tries to protect itself by interrupting either the AC or a DC voltage supplied by it.
This problem will likely require the hands-on of technical help.
