Question about RCA RS2650 Shelf System

CD discs play for 45 seconds and then stop

WHen I first got this machine, the disc player and deck worked. Now, when I put in a disc, it plays for 45 seconds or so and then moves on to the other tracks and does not play. I am mystified.

Re: CD discs play for 45 seconds and then stop

Don't know about this particular machine, but it may be the "scan" feature is turned on- many disc players will sample a piece of the track and move on to aid in finding a certain song. Check your manual, if you don't have one chances are that there's one available on the manufacturers site, or elsewhere on the web. As always, google is your friend.

I burned a disc of music but doesn't play on my Panasonic CD Stereo System.

Some players are like that! You need to experiment with different makes and speed settings when recording!

I have a NSX-V70 stereo. Tapes and CD do not work, FM/AM is fine

Your unit needs a little TLC. Let me address the likely problems/solutions:

1) Tape deck stuck - The most common problem here is that the belt has gotten slippery. This has prevented the mechanism from resetting to a known position and that is what prevents the door from opening. Hopefully when you pried it open, nothing bot broken.

2) Both tape drives run from the same motor and use different belts. The same applies to the second deck as the first. The belts are sliping and need to be replaced.

3) The CD lens is probably dirty and needs to be cleaned. The fact that the CD stops and an attempt is made to play it suggests that the optics are working enough to detect the disc. Clean the lens using a cotton swab and alcohol and that should resoplve the CD problem.

If you have not opened up these before, I would not suggest you start without someone around who has. There are 3 belts that need to be chagned for the cassette section to work. Plan on $15-$20 for the belts.

My gpx karoke machine will not play at all power is on, shows cd number but no sound at all

Here are some things to try:
  1. Take the cd out, turn off the power, unplug the machine, plug it back in, turn on the power, put cd back in and try again.
  2. Check whether other cds play in it or if is it just this disc. Perhaps the disc is not compatible with the player. Might wanna check on that.
  3. Is the volume knob turned up?
  4. Does the mic work or is it just the cd? This will tell you if it is the disc or the machine that is not functioning properly.
  5. If no compatible disc works and the mic doesn't work and the volume is turned up, it "sounds" like the machine is defective.
Hope this helps. I'm a singer, so I wanna get you singing! Good luck.

CD playing erratic

Run a "Laser Lens Cleaner" thru the unit a couple times. Use one that takes fluid, you can find them at just about any retail store for 15-20. If that doesn't solve it, it needs to be repaired. At that point weigh the cost over replacement. A new transport usually will cost 100-150 on average for parts and labor. Hope this helps

CD PLayer no longer recognising CD RW discs

Try cleaning the discs with straight swipes, with a dry cloth, like your shirt, starting from the center and swiping outward.

Dvd wont play in mini hi fi system

First, you should never use commercial cleaners on CDs or cassette heads. They can create more problems than cures.
Unit may have bad disk motor or optical pick-up

Fw316C cd player will not read discs

Buy A CD Lens Cleaner and put it in to the CD Player and keep retrying until the drive plays it and then follow the instructions for the CD Lens Cleaner after its finished try playing a CD if it still wont play try another disc and if it does not play that try reset the player by unplugging it for five seconds if it still wont play the CD drive has failed in the drive and you need a new stereo. Stereos dont last forever so dont be surprised if you need to buy a new one
