Unplug the unit, remove the cover and clean the laser lens glass with a Q-tip. Spray a bit of window cleaner on one end of the Q-tip (over a sink), then use that end to clean the objective lens of the laser. Then dry it with the other end. Wipe Carefully!

Do not apply pressure while cleaning, wipe slowly and then reassemble the unit and test. This is a common problem on many laser-based products, dust and smog get inside the unit and cloud the lens, causing it to skip or not read at all.

    It would also be prudent to clean the worm and gears at the same time as these also build up dust and smog residue,as with the lens,treat gently and take great care and time to do the job ,I have used Switch cleaner as this will not clogg the gear or worm.

CD Deck one wont read discs at times and will sometimes skip through songs is this fixable?


Sound like your Laser has gone. Part No. 9640005107

At $120-$130 for a replacement + P&P + fitting it's probably not viable.

When a cd is playing it skips back to beginning of cd & will not advance to next song or it skips the cd entirely & will not continue to play


unfortunately if your disc is clean and scratch free your laser will be weak and need replacing,, on that model cleaning the laser is a waste of time and money as its a sealed cabinet --check for flaws on your disc itself

The player works fine for a few songs and then it starts skipping in the middle of a song. It is just like something get warmed up and then it starts skipping


It's got a deffective laser assembly. You know the whole mechanism with little circuits where the laser diode is sitting on, and slides back and fort. There is also a ribbon attached to it which connects it to the main circuitboard. That ribbon could also be the culprit. All in all this problem is too complicated for the do it yourself person.

It is clear symptoms of bad optical laser or dirty optical lens.

Thanks.

Cd does not play when inserted. We cleaned the lens with a lens cleaner.


The optical lens assembly is damaged at this point. the lens has burned out and the tracking/load motor seems to be faulty as well. replace the optical lens asap.

99% laser module is faulty.
