Question about Emerson PD6810 CD Boombox

2 Answers

Emerson PD6810 Purchased about 90 days ago. Radio works fine. Used in small office at low volume primarily playing a CD disk. CD quit working! The platter spins but the only sound is a repeating click from the speakers. The window shows two bars. The stop, pause or search buttons have no effect. From what I see in this forum, this appears to be a common problem. Does "Emerson" have any response or solution? Thanks

Unfortanatly, this is why Emerson only warranties these for 90 days, but I have heard and recommend that you contact Emerson and tell them you did not think that their product would break down after a mear 90 days and a lot of times, they will send you a new one, if you bug them enough. There should be a contact number in the owners manual. If you do not have the owners manual, go to: There is a contact link there. By the way, the problem you are having is a bad spindle motor or the laser optics are bad. Have you tried to clean the small laser lens off yet with a cotton swap and some good 90% or better alcohol? Good Luck

O.k. mine was doing the same thing the two little lines would show so I got a q-tip with rubbing achohol and cleaned the lens. My batteries were also going dead, even thou the radio would play, once I plugged it up it was good to go.

I bought a used Emerson PD6810 Portable. It plays great but it won't play with batteries and I tested the batteries they are good. Any advice?

check for a switch at the back or pull the power lead out of the jack socket as some machines will not operate batteries and power at the same time

I have a electric/battery operated Emerson CD clock radio which works when plugged in. When I put new batteries in it won't play. Only plays with electricity. Help

You have to take the chord and disconnect it from the CD player.

If the chord is attached, but not plugged in, it still tries to run of the cable's power

My built in cd player is stuck on (err) and wont play cds

your solution would be to go to a google search for 2001 chevy tracker and see if anyone has the same problem. also check the manual if you have one. can you get the cd out? if there is no cd in put in a cd cleaner disk and see what happens. hopes this helps.

1. make sure you have the cord/batteries inserted the right way.
2. make sure that you have the power to the cd. which is slide the button to the cd, or put the button where the cd is..
3. open the cd
4. place the cd in with the label up
5. close the cd
6. on the front you should see the tracks that it has
7. if it does, just hit play and you should be able to hear the disk moving
let me know if this helps.

Symphonic Video/DVD player- dvds not able to be read so they don't play

possibly check the setup of the player. some dvd's will not work in most players. check the manual. if under warranty take back to store. or better yet buy another one like it and take the one that is bad back to the store with the new receipt.

Player just won't work

if this is just a player and not a radio/cassette/player.
make sure you have the button on cd and place a cd label up in it and see if you see the number of tracks if you do then hit play and you should hear the cd moving. If not put in a cd hit play and then open the cover to see if it turns at all if not then see if you can move the eye to the middle. this should solve it.

since you got it as a birthday gift check the warranty on it. it might be good for a year. go to the website for a support screen and it should have the problem. those tech are good and might give you a good answer. or id you have a place like a electronic repoairs that offer free estimate on what is wrong take it there.
