Question about Fisher Audio Players & Recorders

1980s (I think) Fisher Boombox CD player skips a LOT

Can't find the manual. Set hasn't been used in years. Tried playing CDs & the sound skips a LOT. Can the electronic "eye" that I assume is reading it be cleaned? If so, with what? Thanks for guidance.

yes here is a simple easy way to get them to stop skipping, stick them in the freezer portion of your fridge, only if the cds have scratches on them, even the smallest scratch can cause a perfectly working cd player to make the cd skip, stick the cd in the freezer for about 15 or 20 mins and pull it out and play it, i have used this method for a lot of my video games as well and have never had to buy any "cd player cleaner cds" i hope this helps

CDs skip


Hello

Ok, it sound to me that the laser lens which actually reads the cd's has some dirt particles on it.

There is a very cheap method of solving this problem.
Just go to any cd shop and buy yourself a decent laser lens cleaner disc, follow the instructions and you should be set.

Kind regards
Andrea

Hi, i have a 1984 fisher studio standard cd player. when it plays, it sounds excellent and works fine. the machine will play cdr's as well as normal cds. however, some cds it simply will not spin. it...


Thanks for the informative write-up. So few know how to describe a problem (example: it's broke) or have the intuition to check a few things out.

A surviving 1984 CD player? Good for you. And they originally said the lasers would burn out in a few years.

Don't read too much into sound quality and tracking of defects for this problem. It sounds like a load status sensing problem. Does it make the thee clicks when you load no disk or one upside down (to simulate a bad disk)?

You're probably on the right track with the tilt. I suspect you need to locate the sensor that 'sees' the presence of the disk in the first place. Can you try your troubleshooting with the covers off and observe what may be different at the tilted angle?

Adding Songs from CDs onto my MP3 Player


If you're using Windows, then use Windows Media player to rip your music into WMA. If you don't want to do that, use CDdex to rip your music from CD to MP3. The problem probably lies in whatever program your using to rip your music. To your player. http://cdexos.sourceforge.net/

Try an audio CD which has been purchased. I think you have MP3's on your cd and your boombox maybe does not support MP3

Intermittent Power Problem when playing CDs


Hello db1964,

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.
