The Singing Machine STVG-700 CD Player

I have The Singing Machine Model STVG-700 and the cd player no longer works, can you help me? I have the same problem with the STVG-700 Karoake Machine model. The cd loads but does not play.

    No. It did not help. Any other suggestions? The CD spins for a few moments then stops.

If the cd loads but does not play, and you hear a whirring noise from the inside, then that means that the lens are dirty.

Use a cd cleaner like the ones here first.

If that does not work, you will need to take apart the unit, access the lens, and clean it using cotton tips and isopropyl alcohol.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

As it would seem that cleaning was not corrective, then it would most likely be a defective laser. Some CD units could have laser assemblies replaceable but this would require determining the part number, sourcing for the part and replacing the faulty one. In the US, to my understanding, most service centers and for that matter the techs, would go for assembly replacement, not the lens alone but the entire CD player. This calls for the dis-assembly, removal of the erring CD assembly, determining the part number, brand or manufacturer.

This of course would require opening the unit, perform voltage measurements,determine faulty component and subsequent part(s) replacement. Further, a fair familiarity of electronic components/circuitry and safety procedures, use of a DVM and a soldering iron would be required. It would be to your added advantage access to a service manual or at the very least a schematic diagram with voltage readings.Should you be uncomfortable performing a DIY (do-it-yourself), perhaps your best bet would then be to seek the services of a qualified professional.

Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

There is a known problem with the cd players on these units,
The laser may become stuck on the track,sometimes using a qtip to push it to one end will fix it,
If not the cd player will need replaced.

The lens could be dirty. You can initially use a lens cleaning solution or lens cleaning kit

This sounds like the drive belt for the cd spindle is loose or broke and the cd is not spinning at the right speed so it can not be readreplace belts clean lenes and all should be good!

No sound when cd is playing, or on microphone


probably the amp section- I am working on a STVG-700 right now, the audio amp is mounted on the lowest circuit board in the case, includes the power supply except for the transformer. There are fuses mounted on this board, with luck that's all that blew on this. I know this problem is months old, but if you're like me and didn't get it fixed quickly, it's still sitting around somewhere...

The CD player no longer spins on the Singing Machine Model Model SMG 200


Try removing the 4 screws mounting the circuit board that is located directly under the CD player.
I left the board hanging free and the unit works fine now.
Good luck.

CDG or DVD skips


I came here hoping to find a solution to the exact same problem. I also used the CD cleaning discs. Had the same result. Works for a while, then it just does the same thing again. Problem is, I have a party tomorrow. We are planning on using the Singing Machine STVG 718. (That's the name of my machine)

The singing machine stvg-513 cd player wont work


These are a pain in the **** to service. I have a -700 in the shop right now I'm working on, the drive tray was jammed, so I freed it up (trial and error), and while I didn't notice the first time I checked, the flat-film ribbon cable that plugs into the optical (read) head had gotten some of the conductive traces scraped off. I took a cable from a working unit, installed it, tweaked the laser drive just a bit, and now the drive reads track 0 (with the track info). What I haven't yet figured out yet is why none of the CD controls work (>, <, <<, >>, ||, etc.). This isn't terribly advanced service, but it's beyond beginner level.
