Question about Fisher Audio Shelf Systems

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.

U can try going to any electronics place and ask them for those cleaning supplies.. also, you may want to see if there are any scratches on the disk.
I Hope I Helped

Skips alot when im playing mp3 cd and regular cds


Since this problem occurs on various disks try using a cd/dvd cleaner set, a wet one is better. Follow the instructions on the set. The main idea is to put one drip of the included liquid at the set (usually isopropyl alcohol) at a specific place (like small brush) on the disk surface and play this disk. This way the "brush" will clean up the laser lens and after that the cd/dvd player will be able to read the disks. BE CAREFUL not to put too much liquid on the "brush". In case you can, use a Q-tip with isopropyl alcohol to clean up the cd lens manually. In case this doesn't solve your problem, the cd player needs laser lens replacement by a technician.

In case of a problem or clarification or further details needed, don't hesitate to post me a reply before rejecting my answer.
If you are satisfied, rate my solution with the "thumbs" or (even better) add a testimonial.

HI...
You wont be able to play any new format CDs on an old Fisher or any other older make . It 's the internal decoder logic that's needed. And older players dont have it.
As far as top-loaders..Do a websearch . I dont know of any.

My mothers Teac DC-2831 skips when playing cds. We have used cd cleaning disc, and even compressed air. Nothing! What can we do? If we have to take it to a repair shop, can you give us one in the Los...


My DC-2831 started doing the same thing -- and continued, despite repeated cleaning with a CD-player cleaning disc. Oddly, older CDs would play OK, but brand new ones -- commercial CDs, not homemade -- would promptly begin skipping or lock out altogether. Solution?

Unplug the system, lock the turntable stylus arm into place with the attached C-clamp, then carefully unscrew the back and side panels. Once the innards are exposed, gently lift out the CD-player and visually inspect it for hidden dust, pet dander, even fur can get inside there and gum up the works, and that's something NO CD-cleaning kit can ever reach.

Once you've inspected and cleaned the CD-player of all visible dust and dirt, carefully replace the player, make sure it's seated properly within the shell, then reattach the side and back panels in the exact reverse order as you removed them. THIS IS CRUCIAL: if you don't put the stereo back together in the exact reverse of how you took it apart, you'll have components off-kilter, screws that won't go back in (and leftover screws are a sure sign you're screwed it up!) and your CD-player will be even more temperamental than ever. Word to the wise.

If all this sounds too scary, then you'll have to either live with the crappy CD-playing performance, or get a new system. You can't replace the CD-player unless you buy an entire new system. WARNING: these all-in-one turntable systems are VERY RARE anymore, so don't get mad and kick your TEAC or toss it out or give it away on a whim. You'll play hell trying to find a replacement.

Hope this helps!

I had a rca system similar to this little different. It's a problem you'll find in any cd player after awhile. You'll need to replace the laser. It's quite easy google for some instructions to replace a cd laser. Look around for a laser that can read cd's and cd r and cd rw and you'll be ok. The disassembling might be a bit tuff but it's worth it. I had to replace my hifi laser and after i did sound was incredible again no skipping. Make sure when opening your system you power it on and unplug it to make sure all charge is gone wait 30 minutes or so before you go and operate.

CD's sound awful


Try cleaning the lens with a CD lens cleaner. If that doesn't work, the optical pickup may be back. If tht is the case, it can be repaired but it will probably cost quite a bit (more than $100) to repair.

CD not reading CDs


Sounds like a dirty lens or laser failure.

Seek professional help.
The lasers are not as expensive as they used to be, get an estimate.
