Question about Audio Players & Recorders
This CD player's audio is fully functional and sounds great. However, there is a small function-display on the front that tells you which track you are playing. It does not light up. I have an oscilloscope, a good digital meter, a small analogue meter, and experience repairing various electronics, however, I have no schematic diagram for this unit. Can someone supply a schematic or a service manual? Or does anyone know if this is a known common fault? So far, I've eyeballed the electronics, and there are no signs of burns, popped caps or loose connections. I haven't placed a measurement yet. The display driver chip is NEC D75P308GF and written on the board is TK-T134 94V-O I can't find a spec sheet for this chip. If someone finds a description of the pinouts it would help. Thanks!

Yes it does have backlamps.
They are soldered to the PCB so you will need a few tools like a soldering iron, philips screwdrivers, solder, and some replacement lamps. Replace the lamps with this type from Farnell electronics. They have a 15000 hr life expectancy and last alot longer in the unit. I have tried many types of lamps over the years, and found these are the best choice if you want them to last.
FOR YOUR SAFETY-BE SURE TO DISCONNECT FROM THE MAINS BEFORE REMOVING THE LID
To get access to the lamps, you need to pull the main PCB out of the chassis to then get access to the bottom side of the printed circuit board where the 2 screws that retain the white lamp reflector assembly. Change both lamps with the type I mentioned,
Be careful not to flex the LCD display that is now exposed, it is quite fragile with the support of the lamp reflector cover no longer in place. ... reverse procedure to reassemble and away you go.
I am more than happy to talk about this solution with you further. Just ask away. Cheers

I connected an audio cable from my sound card to the audio unput on the monitor and the monitor plays everything as well as my other speakers connected to my sound card. I have a Diamond multimedia sound card (7.1 setting) By the way, the monitor speakers sound "tinny" if the volume setting on the monitor is too high.

I recently bought a second hand C541i as is and I had the same thing; no power up. I took it to a service centre, they re-soldered the connecting pins for the transformer socket. It now works well.
After that I realised that it could have been the problem with the Burson Audio clock that was installed buy the previous owner but had intermittent playback problems. A study of the schematic revealed that the +12v rail for the clock, is from a different secondary coil winding than the +5v for the DAC etc. And the -12v for the analogue output stage could be from a different pin on the connector as well.
I hope this helps.
