Question about Kenwood CD-423M 200-Disc CD Player

Open Question

DISC DETECTION I just moved to a new apartment but I didn't remove the disks from the unit to transport it. Now when I try to use it, it just starts turning an it shows the "DISK DETECTION" message and it will not stop. I removed all disks and tried with only one but it will never stop turning. The only time it stops turning is when I open the door, but once I close it will go on turning.

SOURCE: remove DISC010 error

If there is a disc in the changer (I guess it's in the tenth slot), try removing it, if it doesn't work by 'normal' means and you feel brave, try shaking the unit a bit. If it doesn't help or you don't feel like banging on it, you'll have to take it for a repair (they open the unit and extract the disc, they get jammed sometimes).

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 .

CD-R drawer won't open. CD is in drawer.

there are different reasons for stuck up disk tray

1. load belt is worn out already
2. driving gear for mechanical loading disc tray has broken teeth.
3. cd got stuck up between the loading disc tray and the plate holder.

You will need unplug your device first and then unscrew the cover of your unit and find it yourself to know what causes it not to open.

once the cover is out, the mechanical loading disc tray will be exposed.
1. remove the stuck cd
2. plug the unit and turn on, to get access the belt, wait for the disc tray to move to the pull out position, then unplug your device.
3. plug the unit and turn on, if the disc tray do not move, use your finger to move the tray and see which gear is broken.

belts are available from this site. just have to measure the correct diameter of the belt in your unit

The arm does not grab the cd on the 200 disc changer

There is a broken gear that transports the CDs into the drive. It's a common problem with these units. It must be taken apart to replace the gear.

I have a technicks sl-pg380a audio player and it reads no disk..i tried putting in other disk everything..i took it apart and found out one of the motors wasnt working..the one that spins the can...

Be careful. The unit will attempt to verify that a disc is present BEFORE it tries to spinb the disk. If the optics are defective, this can happen. First try cleaning the lens using a cotton swab and alcohol. Try to play a clean disc. If it fails to play or read the TOC, then the optics need to be replaced.

Please keep us posted,

Is there a way to remove the tray from a 5 disc cd changer(sony, if it matters)? It was moved with cd inside and now has fallen behind the tray and I can't get it out or close the tray... thanks

Check the side of the unit for screws, the top of this should come apart to get your cd out. Removing the disk tray would be hard, also you would have to open the unit up to remove the tray. Good Luck hope you get it out.

Tried cleaning disc player and player stills says,"check disc."

When a player says CHECK DISK, it is a general error mesage. The disk itself can be dirty or scratched excessively or a mixture of both.

New jazz cd not reconized by player . It says no disk present .

Your laser lens is probably dirty, try a laser lens cleaner if that doesn't work, unplug the unit and take the outer casing off and manually clean the laser with some alcohol and a dry cotton cloth, would also be a good time( see that you have it apart already) to lubricate the moving components with some Vaseline.
Hope this helps with your problem.

New laserunit won't work

You seem confident enought to take it apart, have you tried cleaning the runners that the laser runs backward and forward on.
Some times they collect dirt/dust and the laser can't move smoothly so it jerks and skips.

Not Recognising a CD

NAD CD platters tend to go dry on the guides, stopping the bottom CD clamp from fully engaging. Disconnect the signal and power leads and undo the four screws connecting the transport to the bottom of the case. Remove and get some very fine grease and smear it lightly on all the runners and guides. Also look at the crank which causes the bottom clamp to move up and down, turn the flywheel by hand and watch it move, see where the plastic lug moves to cause the bottom clamp to move. Grease that too. Wipe any spare grease off so only the minimum is used. Do not use oil. Dean Beedell
