Question about Cambridge Audio Azur 640P Amplifier

My Cambridge azur 540C compact disc player won't read CDs.

I have tried several discs and the panel just flashes dashs. I played a CD the other night. The following day I went to play a different CD and this problem happened. I bought the CD player a few years ago, but I have hardly used it. What could the problem be and what would cause this problem?

Hi...

After about 100 CD-DVD units, I've found that most problems are from debris/film on the laser lens.
If taking the cover off the unit doesnt scare you, unplug it and blow out the CD assembly with a can of compressed CO2
and VERY lightly clean the laser lens with 91% or better alcohol on a cotton swab.
If that doesnt work , contact Cambridge Audio for a repair service.

This is a common issue with all belt-drive cd players, all you have to do is to change that belt and you should be done, or take it to a shop for servicing, as this is a part of a simple service maintenance routine, cheap fix though.

The left channel in my Cambridge Azur 640 amplifier keeps cutting out. Wierdly I can often 'shock' it back to life by quickly turning up the volume a lot. Any ideas?


have the volume control cleaned by a spray of electronic contact cleaner. If the carbon coating material is already wiped-out due to use, have the part replaced
