Jammed CD Player + No Remote

Got this when helping someone move an elderly parent. Sounded good, but I was turning it on and off at the plug, and I jammed the CD player. Any idea how to fix the CD player? Any idea how to find a remote?

Panasonic lazerdisk player remote will no turn on the player

Is it possible that someone has either accidently or on purpose changed the remote code on the player.
Other problems include dropped remote, or dirt inside the buttons.

My bose lifestyle 20 system was skipping cds. i used the canned air to try to clean it out. i even took the alum cover..(thanks to someone here that posted the how to's ) now it wont play cd's. the...

You have probably changed the alignment of the laser.
It sounded like the laser was weak anyway.
It should be repairable.
Lasers can be realigned.
If the unit is more than 4 years old and had a bit of use, I would try and replace the laser.

Tryin to watch DVD movie but can't ....Help!

Have to use the manufacturer remote and go into "Setup" with no disc in the player. Then navigate to parental controls. If the code has not been set, you can change the level, if it's set you must know the code. If you've already got the menu on-screen, you should be able to press the "menu"/"setup" or just press "exit"

RCA RT2870 USB won't allow playlists or let me skip folders

I have this same system and it looks like the USB playback is lacking this feature, of switching folders. A workaround is to use shuffle play to jump to one of the last songs in the first folder, then turn off shuffle and skip forward a few songs until you get into the next folder....and so on. Not very good, but for this price I was glad to have USB playback.
Some generic MP3 players will work in the USB port, but they play exactly the same as a USB drive. SO no real solution for this.

I have a Harman Kardon CD Changer. I moved the unit in prepration for installation of new carpet. I failed to remove the CD's and four of five of them jamed. I could not remove the cd's by any means and turned the unit upside down and pointing the front downward. No luck. In fact the tray jammed at this point. Do not force the tray.

Be aware removing the cover might void your warranty. If this is a concern take the unit to an approved repair location.

I un-plugged the electrical power cord from the electrical outlet and removed the cover. Place the screws in a safe place and separate them by size rembering where they came from. Be careful and do not touch any of the components inside the unit with your hands, fingers or any tool. Some comonents in electrical units can hold an electrical charge even after the unit has been turned off and unpluged from electrical outlets. Whether you unit holds an electical charge is unknown to me. Wear rubber soul shoes.

With the cover off, I saw the CD's were jammed together in the CD player (?). I sucessfully removed the CD's. Replaced the cover and screws and the unit worked.

Good luck. If you are not up to this ask a friend with mechanical abilities to do it for you.

Sounds like a dirty or failed laser or DVD mechanism /drive.

Try a DVD/CD lens cleaner (must say both). If you can, try wet & dry version with alcohol based cleaner - Alsop are a good brand.

If this doesn't work, the drive has likely failed. Its unlikely to be economical to repair - but you could always connect a cheap DVD player to the Sony system - the sony system can then continue to provide surround sound audio, whilst the cheap DVD player plays the discs!

Otherwise - sell the system as separate parts (speakers, remote, cables, DVD player) as someone is bound to be desparate for the speaker set on its own to complete a system and will often pay more!

Power off and on again and then no sound present

i assume pressing the source button on the remote control is how you normally turn it on again, (ie video FM CD etc)

it might be that moving the unit to the cabinite the battery power in the remote ( its not infra red its radio wave thay are not picked up by the fm antenna ) is insufficient to wake it up again,
change the batteries in the remote or try to see if there is some weird reason the cabinet is preventing these remote control radio waves from being recieved by the head unit, try opening the door and bring the remote within a few inches of the head unit and see if it turns on when you pres the cd button.

see how you go from there mate
