Question about Harman Kardon FL8385 5-Disc CD Changer

1 Answer

The platter got stuck in the open position.

When we got it to retract (with a little push) the player does not work. The platter opens and closes, but does not play the CD that is in the play position. It seems to be out of synchronization and the controls do not work.

The CD drawer on a JVC EL-E3 CD Player fails to open/close. The CD fails to play when I physically close the drawer. The drawer does not close completely and needs an extra push to close it.


Sounds like the alignment is off. By physically pushing the drawer.
There is a motor on the side of the drawer that should control the drawer by pushing a piece of plastic back and forth. This piece can shift if pressed to hard. In the back of the drawer are the rods that control the top to drop. These need to be aligned with the side motor.

I'm having two problems with this unit , a SONY CDP-CE375 5-CD Changer, which I bought several years ago. The first problem: Occasionally, the CD doesn't seem to be seated properly when I close the platter...


Granted, they don't actually SAY you should carefully place the discs into the detents designed for them on page 7, but that is the expectation.

As for audio hum,

Buzzing is usally AC line noise leaking into an un-shielded cable somewhere or a floating ground. If the AC plug is reversible, try that. Sometimes the buzz is from an attached device. Make sure all audio cables are plugged in tightly at each end and routed away from or at right angles to any power cords and away from other sources of strong magnetic fields like TV's. I've also seen variable track lights induce noise but it's usually minor.


Consider the presence of light dimmers, too. Mine induce buzz when the lights are on.

Broken carouself? Can't properly open, close, rotate, etc.


Broken gears. The current replacement 5 disc is a CD/DVD player and sells for $129.00 at Sony or any other Sony retailer. The cost to have a service center even estimate the repair would be more than 50% of the replacement cost. Hope this helps

Why wont my kenwood cd player work ? It wont play open or do anything it wont let me do anything .


First you do is to unplug the cord of your CD unit for 5 hours in order to drain the stored current,the purpose is to reset the unit. After the 5 hours plug the CD see to it if it open If not,just try to press down on the stop button and pressing eject button at same time and it will unlock the tray .Then the other option is to open the cover of the CD unit and unplug the unit again to avoid electricshock . When open already look for the disc platter moved it outward while driving the gear or simply push out. The drawer or door of the CD player and you will see a small circular disc which is often called turntable or disc platter.When the disc platter is out push it back and push it out you do this three times so the slider mechanism align it properly.If you do already what i said then plug it again and if works already closed the cover. The slider mechanism, depending on the age of the unit and the manufacturer, consists of the small chrome rail, a drive motor, a small gear assembly, and (in some units) a small belt that drives the slider unit via the motor. This small belt causes all sorts of problems. If the belt is broken or slipping, it can cause skipping, dropouts, or simply no start up at all. Also, if the belt breaks in the middle of the disc, the drive mechanism gets hair or dirt wrapped up into the gears, or the pick-up assembly doesn?t return to the start position (called home), the unit will (99% of the time) refuse to release the disc, causing it to become stuck inside the unit. There?s a little micro or leaf type switch located at home position that sometimes gets dirty or breaks and, causing this problem also. Hope it may help you;
