Re: numark cdx

Have had a few issues with cds not reading very well, on intial spinup and random looping and skipping during playback. The CDX's weak link is the cheap CD drive used, and I found replacing the laser solved it for me.

The laser itself is a Sony unit, KSS-213C. I found one on Ebay for around £10 all inc, from a company called LittleDiode ( If you're handy with a screwdriver and a soldering iron, it's not too difficult to replace. During fitting, don't forget to desolder the link on the edge of the board that protects the unit during transit, or it won't work when you power up!

At £10, it's a lot cheaper than having Numark sell you a whole new CD drive for £100+!

Copied CD will track recording but no sound

When the CD was copied, a copy protection mechanism may have stopped the audio from being recorded. Essentially, playback of the original is normal, but software prevents recording by sending only silence, for the duration of the track, to the recording device.

Windows Vista, or newer, does this if you try to record from a streaming service (Rhapsody, Spotify, etc.) or directly from audio being played from a file.

If this isn't the case, try ripping the CD with a different program and re-burning it.

I don't know how it was copied (or ripped), so I can't give you a definitive answer.

Hi Skipping problem with a NAD C545BEE, plays OK for 1 minute, then skips randomly wthin the track, then will skip to different tracks on the CD, like fast forwarding. No problems with the disc themselves

There is a diode in the power supply which gives dc supply to the laser focusing coil driver ic . if the diode get faulty this problem can occur. Just replace all the rectifier diodes in the power supply stage. Its better than searching for the exact one. then check the cd player is it skips the tracks. if then also its skips the tracks then you have to change the laser pickup unit.

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


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

Looks that your player needs a adjustment, or you have dirty lasersliders. There are two chrome sliders besides the laserunit, sometimes there's some dust on it. You can clean it with a cottontip dipped in pure alcohol (96% or more). You can grease it again with just a little bit of teflon oil (also on a cottontip).

Try a disk lowering your write speed, for when you burn. If your speed rating on your disks is 40x then try burniong at 1/2 the speed, I generally have a rule to only burn at half the maximum speed.

Hope this helps

Music speeds up,skips pulsating noise

Ok, this is optical lens assembly failure. the lens assembly is a whole device that runs on a rail with rail motor. the spin motor is also attached to this Assembly as well. the entire assembly will need to be replace due to the damage that has occurred.

Replacing the optical lens assembly will fix all the issues you stated.

Skipping can be the loss of tracking information or a bad motor. Try cleaning the lens using a cotton swab and alcohol. Also, look at the rails that the optics ride on. clean those using a dry cotton swab. There should be small gears close by that move the optics along the rails. Make sure that the teeth are clear.

Keep us posted on your results.

Player stuck in scan mode


Unplug it from the wall...give it a couple minutes. Try playing a CD again (using manual controls) If that works , your remote might be the issue.

If you bought the thing new you paid good $$ for it.

It's worth having it looked at by a Pro.
