CD player making loud rattling noise when playing CD

I have a TEAC CR-H255 CD Receiver. It has just developed a fault when playing CDs. The CD plays ok and there is no problem with the sound, but the unit makes a loud rattling/grinding noise during playback.

Can you advise if this is repairable,and would it be an expensive/worthwhile repair. The unit is around 2 years old. Unforunately the shop I bought it from is now out of business and the warranty was only for a year.

SOURCE: Every CD is skipping

If the cleaning cd does not work, try unplugging the player, taking the back cover off and manually cleaning the lens with cotton wool or cotton buds. If there is a stubborn smear on the lens, try methylated spirits on the cotton wool. Please note the following: Don't lose any screws You may need to take additional pieces of metal or plastic off to get at the lens; do not lose these or the screws that hold them and make sure they go back in the right order DO NOT TOUCH THE LENS WITH YOUR HANDS OR ANYTHING NOT CONSISTING OF COTTON WOOL OR METHYLATED SPIRITS! The lens will be quite fragile-do not apply excessive pressure Ensure everything goes back together the way it was, minus dust and dirt. hope this helps. stoodleysnow P.S. You can get methylated spirits at a local hardware or diy shop, or occasionally art shop.

SOURCE: `Sony CD player won't play burned discs

Many of the older Car CD Players will not play CD-R's or they may with static sounds behind the music. What you need to do is try using a different brand of cd-r disc. If this doesn't work then it means that you may need to replace the CD player because the model that you have may not be decoded in order to play CD-R, CD-RW, play MP3's or anything of that such.
Get back to me if this doesn't work I'll help you square it away.

SOURCE: CD player won't play disk and says "no disk"

The problem of "'no discs'"displayed is in the mechanism in the roller thats moving back and port bringing the lense set .The old grease thier is already hardened that cause the problem.Clean that by using a lighter fluid or like that fluid to take the old grease,and put it with a new one first class grease type-A grease put only a little grease and wipe the lense with a cotton buds without any chemicals on it .Try this solution so performance will be better.

SOURCE: I HAVE A MULTI-DISC CD PLAYER WITH FUZZY SOUND

Digital or analog output? Try the other - same thing? If it improves by switching outputs, suspect teh cable. Also try moving the output to another input on the receiver (?).

Cd skips


my best conclusion would be your player might be copyright protected to the point were you'd be able to hear the music but wouldnt be able to enjoy it.... different player or better quality CD-R's would be your best best. . .

CD Player can play CDs automatically and for this you need to set the clock and timer first and put the player in stand by mode.

Remember there should not be any power failure and if there is any power failure then clock and timer will be reset and player cannot play the cds.

The CD-P1250 skips while playing cds


There is no easy answer to this. I know that I have problems when I burn CDs in any format using my computers DVD burner. Fortunately I also have a regular CD burner which seems to do a much better job.
It may also be the CD player needs to be cleaned, seems that MP3 capable CD players are more sensitive when playing MP3 discs as opposed to regular CDs. There is really no other format that is widely supported (other than WMA) that will give you the capacity of a MP3.

I have the same problem in a 10yr+ one. Am told that this is because the laser has gone weak. A complete CD mechanism is available from Acoustic Services - 01844 347600 for about £80 all in.

Generally something that is time related with a CD player indicates that there is something stuck in one of the gear teeth that drive the laser back and forth to play different areas of the disc. A very small piece of dirt/sand can get inside and stuck in a gear tooth preventing the laser from moving past that point on the CD, in your case it's about the 40 minute mark........you can try skipping to say the last song on the CD which will advance the laser unit a bit more quickly than if you were to let the disc play through, that might dislodge the piece.
Another scenario could be a cracked gear in the same drive area. This is not as likely as you say it plays for 40 minutes or so. There is a piece that is attached to the laser which has gear teeth in it that mesh with the gears that move it, I'd suspect it's in there.
Make sure you do not have the player plugged in when you open it, the laser is capable of damaging your eyes.
