Question about Pioneer X-HX5000 Shelf System
Pioneer XC-HX5000 everything works great, well kept, but CD player no longer functions. Screen displays OC READ. Lost the manual. Any suggestions?
SOURCE: hi i have a pioneer
I wolud recommend you to deal this with a MiniDisc specialist i know. He deals with MDs and has loads of experience helping people on net. His contact details are as follows
Sigma D.O. Electronics
3, Sheinkin str. Tel Aviv, Israel
As for your E2 at the high track portion of the MD. This is due to very low revolutions of the motor as the laser unit goes to the high part of the disc. If there is an obstacle or even small dirt on the motor it will not revolve, the same can happen if the laser is not "strong" enough or if the recording is made on a cheap or bad disc. The problem is that even if the disc is good and the machine is clean it still can happen and there is not much to do about it. This is the price we pay for those small machines attempting to save power and in the sane time causing us lot of headache.
Thanks for using fixya.. Please rate this solution.. Thank You..

SOURCE: Hello I have a Pioneer XC-L11
It is most likely that the laser pick up is bad. That is the part that reads the disc and is the most common reason. You can try a lens cleaning disc to see if it just needs to be cleaned, but if that does not work you will need to take it in for service. This problem can be caused by several different things, from the spindle motor (spins the disc), to the pick up (reads the disc), or even an IC that controls one of those things. Once you have cleaned the lens, you can also try cleaning the disc's. If a disc has a fingerprint or scratch in the area of the disc that is know as the TOC (table of contents), it will not read the disc. Fingerprints in other areas of the disc will cause the player to skip or even stop playing. I use windex and a soft cloth like a bath towel to clean the disc's, it works as good or better than the disc cleaning kits you can purchase, and it is much cheaper.
If none of this helps, it has a problem that only a trained technician can figure out with the proper test equipment. Then you must decide if it is worth getting fixed. Some service centers offer free estimates, but those are the ones that don't actually check your equipment first before giving an estimate. They just give you a ballpark figure that is usually pretty high. To get an acurate estimate you normally have to pay for it. A technicians time is worth money, my shop charges $25 for an estimate.That is pretty cheap. Some are as high as $65 for an estimate. But if you are paying for an estimate, they will normally at least troubleshoot the unit and determain just what the problem is, compared to a free estimate which is just a guess and a ballpark figure usually high to cover the cost no matter what the problem is. You may also end up paying much more for a repair when you get a free estimate, because you have already approved that amount, and many shops will charge you that much even if they find a simple problem that only takes 30 minutes to fix.
Replacing a pick up normally cost about $125 to $150 because the part can sometimes cost as much as $75.
I hope this was helpful for you and lets you make an informed decision. let me know if you need any more help.

The problem is a bad solder connection probably on the display itself. These are not the easiest to open up. I would not suggest you attempt this if you haven't done these before. This is a simple fix for any shop that handles audio repair. Call around for a shop that works on Pioneer gear and request an estimate over the phone. Indicate that the dispaly has bad connections that need to be resoldered. You may find a shop that will repair this for short money. Where are you located? Perhaps I can suggest a shop.

first thing you do is turn the power off on the radio by hitting the off button . there is a button you have to hold in. it should be the volume knob. if not try some other buttons. you have to hold it in for about 4 seconds. then a menu should come up. if you scroll though and you can turn on and off the aux . if you have any problems let me know
