Sony SCD-CE595 doesn't play hybrid layer SACD

My 5 disk changer plays single layer SACD's perfectly. The unit stopped reading the SACD layer on hybrid CDs. I ran two CD lens cleaners without success. Then I opened the unit and cleaned lens with alcohol. Still no luck. I'm reluctant to buy a used one off e-bay without testing. How difficult is it to replace the optical laser lens pickup? Thanks for your time!

SOURCE: Malata DVP-500p plays CD's but not DVD's

Could be But most of the time when a tech says a laser assy is bad Its not. It could be a simple grating adj on the pickup assy that alot of techs dont have a clue what it is. This alighnment requires speacial tools and is not advised if you dont know how to do it. What it does is adj. the laser postion onto the prism inside the pickup assy. Or youer problem could be a tracking/focus Gain or offsetr alighnment. This has to be dont looking at the rf waveform from the pickup assy drive circuit via an oscilliscope. These are not unfortantly a consumer adjustment as well. If its an inexpensive player, such as more then a year or so old or under 75 bucks , it probably wont pay to have someone look at it. My friend , this is the times of the throwaway world!! Good Luck

SOURCE: movie skips and freezes during play

This is a common problem on CD and DVD players.

Altini is correct to a point. You can try taking the top case off, removing the DVD drive and taking the top off of the drive. Then use a q-tip on the laser lense. I use a little squirt of windex on the q-tip. Gently clean the lense even if it doesn't look dirty. Make sure you very gently work the lense up and down through it's travel. This will make sure no dust or dirt is interfering with the lense focusing.
Reassemble and try your movies again. This is a 50 50 proposition. If you still have the same problem, the mechanism has likely gone bad. Time for a new DVD player.

SOURCE: pioneer xv htd520 won't play dvds

This is a common problem for this model. It has a memory IC that must be replaced. This is a surface mounted IC that requires exceptional soldering skills to replace. I work at an authorized Pioneer service center and have repaired a good number of these for this exact problem. Unless you have great soldering skills it is not something that should be attempted to do yourself, it can cause permanent damage to the board if not done perfectly.

If you have the proper skills and soldering equipment I will be happy to give you the Pioneer part number so you can replace it yourself. If not, then you really should just take it to a service center and have a professional do this.

Let me know if you would like that part number.

SOURCE: jvc dvd player no disc error

Hello!

I did have a similar problem. It was solved by cleaning the laser lenses/prisma. You have to dismantle the whole pick-up the to see the laser lenses.

There is one lens which is held by couple wires and below there is prisma/mirror.

I did use ear-cleaner-stick and desinfection liquid (with alcohol) for cleaning. Now it works!

Your PS3 may actually be playing the SACD layer but if you're listering through optical you're not going to get any better sound quality than CD.

For stereo SACD quality you can use the analog outputs; for multichannel SACD quality you'll need to use HDMI.

See the PS3 SACD FAQ.

It won't track reliably. It plays OK for the first few tracks of a CD, then has trouble tracking. Finally it just sticks.


Try cleaaning the lead screw that moves the head. Often they get dust particles which jam up the works. REMEMBER that CD's read from the inside tracks outward.

What is the best way to attach a Sony SCD CE595 CD player SACD to a Denon AVR 2105 Receiver. I thought the optical input would be best but according to a web posting, toslink does not support SACD


That is correct. Digital connections through some models of SACD players are via "firewire", otherwise it is analog output. There are no optical connections.

The shortest pair of RCA cables, or even component video cable as an alternative will work.

CD player does not recognize the cd's in the player


Hi, you will need to replace the optical lens assembly asap if possible. this is basically what the issue is at Thia's time. you can confirm my diagnosis by trying to clean the lens with a lens cleaning disc. if the cleaning dosen't restore the reading ability of the lens, you will need to replace the optical lens assembly when possible.

please rate and have a great memorial day:)
