Cambridge Audio Azur 740C CD Player


The disk drives in the 640C/740C are Sony. Most people renew the laser, but that is tricky dealing with static electricity. Try renewing the flatcable from the laser unit to the servo circuit. Cheap. If this does not work, you can always renew the laser as well. Beware. There are (Chinese) non Sony lasers on the market. Success!

Cd not able to play last few tracks knocking sounds


CD Mechanism is possibly faulty. Sometimes won't track the outside of the disc properly. Try other CD's of about the same playing time, if more than 1 disc does it, the fault is usually the mechanism. (If the disc is a lot longer than the standard max CD length 0f 74 minutes, some players may have a problem with them. This was usually with older generation players, so may not be applicable here.)

Dell studio one optical drive makes a chattering noise and ejects the cd after 2 seconds


Although you will rarely be able to repair your own CD player, you may be able to diagnose problems.


That can help you decide whether to have it repaired.


WARNING: Before you start troubleshooting remember that you are dealing with electricity that can KILL.

Only work inside the computer case when the power has been switched off and disconnected. Never open the power source.



Some of the below steps recommend removing physical parts within the computer.

While in the computer it is highly recommend that you be aware of ESD and its potential hazards



Check all connections, such as from player to amplifier or receiver and receiver to speaker. Check and clean contacts on RCA jacks and cables and try a different input on the amplifier or receiver.


Clean the lens.

Use only a special CD lens cleaner and follow the instructions carefully.


Check the traverse assembly (the metal rod that the laser travels along and the gear that drives it) if CDs aren't recognized or won't play, frequent skipping occurs at random, CDs randomly get stuck in one spot, the player can't find tracks correctly, or cleaning the lens doesn't work.


Dust and lint may be interrupting its function.


Have the laser-head assembly checked by a repair person if the traverse assembly seems intact and free of debris.


Check for a stuck CD if the drawer won't open or close or will only partially open or close.

If there isn't one, have gears and belts replaced.


Lubricate the gears if the CD player will only play certain tracks or up to a particular point on a disc.


Look for broken plastic parts, such as gears and clips.


Look for loose or broken internal connections.


Have the power supply replaced if your CD player overheats.


If your player won't recognize a disc, make sure the CD is properly loaded and not scratched, and that the lens is clean.


Hope this helps.

Cambridge Audio AZUR 840C Transport Jamming when disk is loaded


The above comment is complete and utter nonsence !
Here's what you do . Take the lid off , take off the top of the cd transport marked "CD 1 Low Jitter Compact Disc Transport" held on with 2 screws , rince it under warm water (its made of plastic) and refit . Its a build up of dust . Yoy will have to do this every 2-3 years . P.S Leave on "stand-by" because you will do more damage to the circuit boards by cutting the power continually .

I have a Sony hi-fi CMT-NE5 and my CD player doesn't work. Everything else works perfectly. When I put a CD into the player it makes a clicking sound and the cd spins for a bit but slowly and then it...


In most cases when the CD does not play it is possible that the optical head is a suspect. Sometimes it might pick up ordinary audio CD but will not play other formats. This indicates that the optical head is weak and so there is no detection or scanning of the CD . If the optical is working the tracks will be read immediately but with no scanning the laser head can be defective.

The main motor will not work in some cases as unless the tracks are read the drive motor will not work with signal from the processor. Also in some cases the central motor base can shift and so the distance to the disc can be more resulting in low detection. You can pull up the spindle to come closer.
Sometimes certain cleaner disks will not be tracked to run for cleaning as it will not be read and so will reject. Hence it is ideal to manually clean the laser head eye using a cleaning swap /cotton bud with gentle pressure on the lens eye.
If there is no result then watch if the CD spins or tries to spin. If so the board seems to work unless a test is taken on the main board but the possibility of a defective optical head can be the suspected fault.
If any of the above seems otherwise we must recheck with possibilities of a malfunction of the main processor board

Thank you for using Fixya
