SOURCE: Sony DAV-SC5 Home Theatre System problem playing CD-RW's

Hello, your home theatre system is from the year 2003. Maybe a cleaning the optical can solve the problem. There are cleaning CD kits on the market, but better option is if a pro does it (the cleaning) for you. If you need more assistance please advice. Arpi

Remove the radio, disconnect the blue wire, and connect the blue/white wire in its place. This should fix your problem.

The laser has gone weak. If you feel confident taking it apart, unplug it and look for a small potentiometer on the CD reading pickup. Turn it to the right to about 700 ohms, it should start reading again. If you don't have a multimeter to measure it then get one, a basic $10 meter will do fine.

You could try to clean the laser, with a special cleaning disk. Don't try to clean a laser by opening the player, you will damage the system.
If it is a CD burned in a PC, it also can be the laser is now a bit less, not capable reading CD-R or CD-RW, and still can read normal CD's

Copied CDs won't play with my Aiwa LCX 350 shelf system. It will spin for a bit, then stop. I've tried every method ... with or without remote, start/stop, etc. This doesn't happen with any retail CD. Only...


It sounds like it's not reading the CD. 2 things to try, neither of which are guaranteed to work:

1) Try changing the brand/colour of your recordable CD.  Some machines read different colours/brands better than others; particularly older CD players.  If the ones you have are all light-coloured, try burning a couple of dark-coloured CDs and see if that helps

OR:

2) It could be the speed at which you're recording.  Try burning a CD at 1x speed and see if that helps.

My gpx karoke machine will not play at all power is on, shows cd number but no sound at all


Here are some things to try:
  1. Take the cd out, turn off the power, unplug the machine, plug it back in, turn on the power, put cd back in and try again.
  2. Check whether other cds play in it or if is it just this disc. Perhaps the disc is not compatible with the player. Might wanna check on that.
  3. Is the volume knob turned up?
  4. Does the mic work or is it just the cd? This will tell you if it is the disc or the machine that is not functioning properly.
  5. If no compatible disc works and the mic doesn't work and the volume is turned up, it "sounds" like the machine is defective.
Hope this helps. I'm a singer, so I wanna get you singing! Good luck.

No sound and cd read Paused


I had the same problem a few times. I found that it went into pause mode when the CD was playing and the volume was turned down to zero. Try turning the volume back up. The CD should exit pause mode.

T6216 CAN'T USE CD BURNER ERROR MESSAGES INDICATES NO CD DRIVE


Sounds like your CD drive is gone. Try inserting a program cd and see if it reads it. You can also switch the cable attached to the cd drive. Make sure you get a power light on the cd drive when you start the PC, if not you can try a different power connector from the power supply. Hope this helps.

Cd rewritable player recorder tascam cdrw4u


I never had that problems. I have been using it over five years. Does it play commercially made CDs (the ones you bought at the store)? Panel shows track numbers and sound volume? Can you hear it by using a head set (phone volume control turned up? If so, now recording part, do you have input select correct (analog or digital)? Input cable(s) into right connector(s)? When you press "record" button, does it put into "pause" mode? Can you watch the incoming sound levels when it is on "pause" mode? Can you start the recording with remote's fader button or play/pause button on the machine? Good luck.

DP-01FX/CD sound quality of CDs


Nothing really specific other than to make sure you are recording as close to 0 db as possible without going over. Your master fader also needs to be set at 0db or above as this effects the volume when mastering.

Commercial CDs use a lot of compression to attain volume levels which aren't attainable without it. You should however be able to reproduce onto CD the volume levels you are hearing on your Tascam without resorting to compression.

To troubleshoot, you might want to try exporting your master tracks as wav files onto your computer via usb and then listening to them there. If the volume is low there you aren't creating master tracks with good volume (see above: master fader level), if the tracks sound good as wavs on your PC, then burn them onto a cd from there. If that CD has proper volume then you may have some problem with your Tascam CD burner although I've never seen a situation where a burner actually caused low volume like this.

Best of luck.
