RCA RCD175 CD player won't power up on ac but will on batteries

The unit has good rectification but on the 9V buss it has 15v and on the 4.5V buss it has 3.4V. There is no regulator that I can see on the 9V line. Is the transformer shorted causing it to output a higher voltage?

    I have an RCA RCD175 Boombox that will not power up with AC - It was used only once,and it worked great for about 1 hour, then i unplugged it from the outlet, it would not power up when plugged back in. Ihave not tried batteries yet,I would really prefer to use the AC power cord - Thanks for any help!

SOURCE: Power transformer appears bad.

don't bother with a transformer. use a 12vdc 2amp power supply, the unit has a 8v regulator. remove the bad transformer and connect the power supply. polarity doesn't matter because the unit has full bridge rectifier that will provide the proper polarity.

RCA rs2130i won't play MP3 or WMA anymore


first the laser may be dirty. you can find lens cleaning disks at any cd store. But have you recently bought a new pack of cds? Sometimes certain CDs just simply dont work with some players. No reason for it they jsut dont work. You could also be using the wrong type of cd, CD+R vs CD-R

Hey...if your system is less than a year old it may be covered by the warranty, if not remove the cover to access the inside of unit. Near the power supply inside there is a fuse, it may be blown. Can be found at local electronics supply. Good luck.

CD not working propely


"No disk" is about as fatal a CD read error as ther is. Before we assume the player is at fault let's look at our media. A CD should be handled and cared for like any opitical device. Dirt, fingerprints and scratches are tolerated somewhat but the CD standard isn't impervious to problems.

Do you get any constant results with any CD, say one that always works vs one that never works? Compare them visually for problems on the one that doesn't. I use a clean soft cloth with glass cleaner to clean my media.

This is the entire troubleshooting section for the unit.

Care of CDs
When a CD becomes dirty, wipe it from the center out with a
cleaning cloth. After playing a CD, store it in its case. Do
not keep it in hot or humid places.

Troubleshooting
If your unit fails to perform properly, check the following guide
and the relevant sections of the Operating Instructions.
There is no sound.
•Are the speakers and AC power cord connected properly?
The unit shut off suddenly.
•Possibly a short circuit in the speaker terminals.
Disconnect the AC power cord from the AC power outlet
and re-connect the speaker cords correctly.
The unit blacks out when the unit is turned off.
•Is ECO mode set to on?
Erroneous display.
•Reset the unit.
Poor radio reception.
•Check antenna connection. Adjust the antenna to find the
best reception.
•Move unit and antenna away from other electric appliances
and cords.
The tape does not run.
•Is the deck in pause?
Poor tape sound.
•Check for dirty heads. Clean them if needed.
•Use type I (normal) tapes.
Cannot record.
•Is the erasure prevention tab of the tape broken off? If so,
cover the detection slot with adhesive tape.
The CD player works poorly.
•Is the disc correctly loaded?
•Is the disc dirty?
•Is the lens affected by condensation? If so, wait
approximately one hour and try again.
Resetting the unit
If an unusual condition occurs in the display window or the
cassette deck, reset the unit as follows:
1 Press POWER to turn off the power.
If the power cannot be turned off, disconnect the AC power
cord, then plug it in again.
2 Hold down s and press POWER.
Everything stored in memory after purchase is cleared.
Condensation
Moisture may form on the CD pickup lens when:
•The unit is moved from a cold spot to a warm spot
•The heating system has just been turned on
•The unit is used in a very humid room
•The unit is cooled by an air conditioner
When this unit has condensation inside, it may not function
normally. Should this occur, leave the unit for a few hours,
then try to operate again.

RCA RP-9515 stereo, CD player won't play


RD probably stands for "Reading Disc" and ND probably stands for "No Disc". If the CD player doesn't recognize any discs, then either the laser is dead or the motor has died. MOst likely you will have to replace the unit.

RCA RS2046 CD won't play


This is what I found: It worked for me.
You can try to reset the unit using the procedure below: Let the unit sit with the AC power cord out of the wall for a couple of hours. Then hit the power button 10-15 times (with the AC power cord still out of the wall socket!) and then try again. If you continue to have problems unfortunately it sounds as though it is within the electrical assembly. It is hard to say exactly what caused it or exactly what the problem with the circuits are without having a technician look at it. If the place of purchase can not simply exchange the product you can email me your...........

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.

MY CD PLAYER SAYS "NO DISC "


Try a CD drive cleaner- this is a disc with a little brush and some cleaning fluid. Other than that it will be time for the next one - this is a no repair situation here I am afraid
