I have had a similar problem with my Denon DCD-520, the laser current needed adjusting with a watchmakers screw driver, try turning it a quarter clockwise turn and see if the problem is fixed.

Hopefully, it may just need cleaning and lube.

I have a Denon DCM-460 purchased from Goodwill a couple days ago and had problem with one CD-R skipping and stuttering toward the end.

Cleaned the CD which helped a little but still started skipping and stuttering.

Noticed a scratch toward the outer end which I suspect is where the problems occurred.

Anyway, last night I cleaned laser, rails, lubed spindles and moving parts. I used 99.9% alcohol to clean. I used a light teflon oil (Tri-Flow) to lube spindles and rails. And white electronic grease where you see remnants of white grease.

Today, I now played through the problem CD-R with no problems.

Assuming placement is level and stable, certainly worth a try and the effort.

I have a dcd 1650 and it won't read discs, but sometimes it does, I have checked and cleaned lens


A Laser Lens malfunction will cause this to happen and is a common problem. This can be fixed at home if a new Laser Lens or Laser Lens w/ transport can be found for your unit. I used ebay to purchase a new Laser Lens for my Denon DVD 5900. The part is also sometimes available from parts stores like Parts Express for a premium, $100+ Parts Express vs $17 ebay in my case. I would recommend purchasing a FACTORY SERVICE MANUAL from an online vendor. The manual will cost between $10 - $20 and is downloadable. The installation is very straight forward. The part that might not be clear would be the grounding shorts on the new Laser Lens. THE NEW LENS COMES SHORTED AND AFTER THE PART IS INSTALLED IN THE PLAYER THE GROUND SHORTS MUST BE UNSOLDERD FOR IT TO WORK CORECTLY. The part comes this way to protect the Laser from static shock damage.
The repair on a Denon DVD 5900 cost $30 and took about an hour to complete.

I have a Denon dcd 600 cd player. Old but little used and in good condition. Used to put in a cd, close the drawer and the entire display would light up, the disc having not been read at all. After...


it's most likely the belt that drives the cd tray has perished over time and certainly if you tilt the player to help it, that's just gravity giving it a push. replace the belt and all should be ok. hope this helps?

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.

Having a problem with my CD Player's drawer


This has to do with a mini switch inside the door mechanism that it pushes once but with the bounce phainomenon in electric pulses it thinks that you pushed the cd door inside manualy and it tries to close the door. Try replacing this mini switch. this will solve your problem.
