These are a cool old machine. They use the cdm1 laser mechanism that was revered in its day for high performance. If you have voltage available after the rectifier stages, check the 3 pin voltage regulators. Marked as 78xx for positive regulator, and 79xx for negative. the xx gives you the voltage they are supposed to be putting out. They commonly fail, also check the same for dry solder joint. resolder them anyway if you are unsure. If all the regulators check out, then also check low value flame proof resistors in the power supply rails. Get back to me here again and let me know how you got on. Good Luck
HERE YA GO!! GOOD OLD FASHIONED BEATING FIXED MINE... I PROMISE THIS. When you turn on your CDX... HIT THE SQUARE AREA where the play button and the cue buttons are located. It will jump to CDX on the screen and work fine. Mine did this and i messed around with bumping it and stuff and figured this out
Does it pop out immediately? If not, listen carefully to the drive after you insert the disc. Can you hear the disc spinning? Any activity from the laser? If the disc is not spinning but you can hear the faint whirring and clicking of the laser transport, it could be that the laser itself has failed - it's the laser that detects if a CD is present. If it doesn't detect anything (due to being knackered!), the disc will not spin and will eject.
There are many users with the same problem.
I have it also with one of my cdx.
Dr see d'EX at youtube; http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QnAGKnzQaJs
shows a modification to solve this problem.
He makes a kind of cushion with a ducktape and
tries to fix a cable at the back of the player.
Anyway, i've tried it and it worked ... for a while.
Know the problem consists, and I will take my
Unit to a service point.
It is a shame that there is no sufficient information on the net
regarding this problem. Many cdx owners have this problem.
