"The Singing Machine" SMG-228- Disc door will not stay closed

Gave "The Singing Machine SMG-228" to mom for holidays a couple years ago. She was not using it, so we reclaimed it for our family. Mom managed to break the top disc door- it will not stay closed, so we can't use the machine. Also, she lost all paperwork, so we don't know how to fix the problem, how to use the machine OR who to contact. Can someone please help?

I am trying to find the manual for you but at this stage the only thing I have is the Singing Machine website which has user manual for some of the models only. It appears SMG-228 may not be supported in all countries.

Check if any of the ones listed on the site is similar to what you have. I will keep checking and contact you again soon.

Where can I get a replacement mike for an SME-399


The mic you have is probably 1/4 inch in diameter and the Boombox more than likely has 1/8 inch diameter mic jacks. RadioShack has adapters for just this problem.

The CD player will play some purchased CD-s but will not play others. The ones that it will not play do NOT iniate the disc motor but a click is heard and the display reads NO DISC. I have cleaned the...


If you can disassemble the CAP(disc holder) and place it on the disc while it is on the spindle and at the same time push the (hidden)lid switch you will see the lazer"s lens move up and down while trying to focus on the disc. If the lazer see's the disk it will tell the motor to turn. If it dosn't see the disc it will not turn the motor. Some model will kick the disc to spin a little while trying to see the disc. This type of player can be tricked into seeing the disc if you spin the disc a little by hand when the lazer's lens is moving up and down. At that point in time it might see the disc and take over the motor and spin up to normal speed. If the disc is an illeagal copy sold as a original the quality of the disc could be the cause. If the player is very clean (no small hairs stuck to the glue that holds the lens in place) (never clean with a cotton swab, use a shammie swab with rubbing alcohol or isopropal 99%) the problem could also be that the lazer is just not strong enough and the whole lazer-motor assemble should be replaced. Older units could use 1 drop of light motor oil on the motor shaft at the bearing to help start the motor when the system kicks the disc to spin. If the player reads the disc at the time you manually spin the disc maybe a good cleaning and oiling is all that is needed. The disc spins clockwise. if the disk spins counter clockwise replace the whole assemble. Maybe simpler, just give the disc a good clockwise spin and quickly close the door and push play while the disc is still spinning. if it starts, there you go. Don't use caned air on the lazer assemble. it will blow the dirt further into the lazer mechanism under the lens and make matters worse! Good luck!!

My machine has the same problem and I got the same response from the company. I discovered a quick fix. With needle nose plyers I removed the wire from the corner of the lid that holds the lid open. Without the wire, the lid remains closed and the CD will play. The downside is that its tricky to open the lid. I've been using the piece of wire I removed to gently pry the lid open. I think I will glue a knob or ribbon to the top of the lid to make it easier to open. This isn't a perfect fix, but it was quick & free and now I can use my machine!

The mikes are easy. Generally the wire gets disconnected - so you can either buy a new wire connector or have it soldered - very easy job. Not sure about the screen display problem - good luck
