Question about CD Players

Open Question

My Cambridge Audio D100 CD player. Has stopped working. The draw opens and closes without touching controls, and there is no display. Disk does not spin. There is only about 13 volts from the transformer to the pcb, and 0 volts to the display panel connector from the transformer. I do not have a schematic. Please help. Randolph Smith.

It can be repaired but in all of my years in consumer repair, I dread the CD/DVD tray alignments the worst.

There are many things involved in getting them to operate without fail. Using the mfgs documentation you can get them up and running but most of the time they failed because something is amiss to begin with. So you spend an hour getting everything setup and it will work once or twice but them fail. Only to find out that a location sensor is bad or a gear is missing a tooth....

You need the service manual for those values. A quick google search shows it costs more than the replacement transformer! http://www.google.co.uk/search?hl=en&q=XG539A00+&meta=

But that is for the 110v version @$21. The same company sells the service manual @$24 or just keep googling.

SOURCE: Sony CDX-M850MP Remote wont work when front panel closed.

The problem is the flexible wire strip that cracked. I just had the same problem. A guy has them on auction on e bay. Type in model number and flexible replacment for search.

Fix by.
1. Unscrewing 2 the two screws that connect faceplate to motorized flip bracked. One on each side.
2. Unscrew the screws that are connected to the back plate. Plate directly behind faceplate with Blue LED.
3.Unclip backplate by sliding Deck out 1 inch. Two clips on each side.
4.Unclip the waferboard/circuit board from the back plate.
5.Remove Flexible wire band that connects the faceplate to backplate.
6.Attach new flexible wire band to deck then to face.
7. Reclip everything, Rescrew everything.

Whalah it is fixed.

What is wrong with my CD player?


Great player. Although the manual does not say a thing about this error, I'll try.
I think you use normal CD's and not disks you or someone burned for you.
The only thing I can think of is the CD must be dirty to scratched.
Or if you try to play disks, burned in a PC, that could cause trouble too. Although all CD and DVD burners in a PC, can play these disks, not all CD players can. Only the ones where the manufacturer says the drive is compatible with CD-R and or CD-RW.
A normal CD has metal as a reflector and gives a clear image from the ones and zeros on the disk. CD-R and CD-RV only have a dye on which a laser has changed the colour. Not giving a clear distinction between ones and zeros. The better CD players, have a stable motor and so on, but the laser is not set up for the dye disks. And although sometimes a disk can be played, for the player it looks lie a "dirty" disk.
I hope this helps.
If not, perhaps you should clean the laser, with a special cleaning disk. DONT open the player and DONT touch the laser.

The disk drives in the 640C/740C are Sony. Most people renew the laser, but that is tricky dealing with static electricity. Try renewing the flatcable from the laser unit to the servo circuit. Cheap. If this does not work, you can always renew the laser as well. Beware. There are (Chinese) non Sony lasers on the market. Success!

Cambridge Audio AZUR 840C Transport Jamming when disk is loaded


The above comment is complete and utter nonsence !
Here's what you do . Take the lid off , take off the top of the cd transport marked "CD 1 Low Jitter Compact Disc Transport" held on with 2 screws , rince it under warm water (its made of plastic) and refit . Its a build up of dust . Yoy will have to do this every 2-3 years . P.S Leave on "stand-by" because you will do more damage to the circuit boards by cutting the power continually .

My cambridge cd player 640c not able to close and keep opening, any advice?


Unless you are an experienced tech, you should let a pro look at this unit. It may be a mechanical fault, or a logic control problem. Cambridge makes excellent sounding CD players, so I think they warrant spending money to repair them properly. Attempts by inexperienced owners can greatly increase the repair cost.

Dim display on Cambridge Soundworks 88CD


I can't find a manual for this but my guess would be there is a setting for the Display to dim it at all times unless you touch a control.

HHB-830 CD TRAY does NOT open.


It's made for HHB by Pioneer, you could try one of their agents?. Opening up is fairly straightforward if you are methodical and take your time if you need to. There is a test mode sequence you can try - hold down the 'menu/delete' and 'auto/manual' keys together for 5 seconds until the display blinks all the lights then press the stop button. Now ONLY press the open / close button - pressing any other keys will change settings and without the service manual you won't know what you're changing. Press stop then power it off to exit.

I can email you the service manual if you need it. It sounds like a gear has come loose inside to me. I strip these machines for parts quite regularly so may be able to help you out if you're able to work out what if anything is broken but I'm in the UK. It may be as simple as a belt has come loose :-)
