Table Error

After replacing belts, turntable moves to position disc 1 in front of loader then swings back and forth 10 times and posts "TABLE ERROR" again. If I apply slight clockwise pressure to table, then disc loads OK. On unload, table rotates to position disc 1 in front, door opens, then table oscillates another 10 times and posts "TABLE ERROR" again. Any hints?

We've all done it, or one of our youngsters do it for us... knock the multi disc tray out of sync with the drive gears.

With multi disc trays, the CD drive has to move out of the way during disc change and tray loading. Occasionally a disc jams, someone forces the tray movement, and you hear the GRIND, GRIND, GRIND of slipping gears.

Most designs have a switch-hit gear setup that's self correcting for small adjustments but occasionally the mechanism slips beyond self correcting.

Here's the process to open up and fix the tray alignment for Harman's FL8385 CD Changer.

  1. No disc. - Load a disc into the tray.
  2. Disc has been loaded upside down. Place the disc with the label side up.
  3. Disc region code does not match region code of the player.
  4. Disc type is not the correct type to play.
  5. Disc is damaged or dirty. Clean the disc or try another.
  6. Moisture may be condensed inside the unit. Remove the disc and the leave the power on for one or two hours.
follow the steps and fix it.
God bless you

Nad cd541i doesn't always read cd's; it can tell me how many tracks/minutes there are but won't find the beginning of the cd; in this case, sometimes if I skip forward two or three tracks and...

It sounds like a physical problem in the laser seek mechanism. Possibly a sticky area on the guides. Heavy reading for all malfunctions related to optical disc...

Toc error 14

On questions like this it would help if we knew the manual was or was not consulted.

And if it was NOT, why.

C14 / TOC Error The unit did not read the TOC information. Insert other discs.


"If you write data to a disc and leave the session open, the TOC -- which tells the CD player or CD-ROM drive where the tracks are -- is written into a separate area called the Program Memory Area, or PMA. CD recorders are the only devices that know to look at the PMA, which is why you can't see data in an open session on a standard playback device. CD players won't find any audio tracks, and CD-ROM drives won't see a data track. When the session is finalized, the TOC is written in the lead-in area, enabling other devices to recognize the disc.
(Something to try: write an audio track to a blank CD, and leave the session open. Put the disc in a CD player. Some players will deny the existence of the disc, some will spin the disc up to an incredible speed and won't even brake the spindle when you eject the disc, others will perform equally random acts. The TOC is important!)"

Onkyo C-707chx cd tray jammed won't open won't play

I have the same exact problem with my Onkyo C-707CHX and I found a solution that doesn't involve jamming any screws or other metal objects into your cd tray (which could most likely just cause more damage). This way seems a little safer: Power on your device and hit the open button. As soon as you hit the open button quickly push slightly with both hands on both sides of the cd tray that should be opening. You should hear the trays moving around in there and then you have to try to feel for a slight push from the tray. As soon as you feel that slight push, take your hands off of the tray and let it come out. This has been working for me for a while now (and hopefully will continue to work until I take it to get fixed somewhere). The only issue I have run into is that my "Disc 1" open button doesn't work with this method. So I just use this method with disc 2 or 3 and then once it's open I can hit the disc 1 button to get to that tray. So if it doesn't work with one tray, try the other two as well. Hope this helps.

Kenwood DP-J1070

I have been experiencing the same problem all of a sudden. Almost like it doesn't recognize that there is any information on the disc(s), regardless of whether it is a CD-R or Original disc. As I looked closer, I saw there is also a small spring connected at the top on the swing arm that pulls the CD in (behind disc indicator light) but it is not connected to anything at the other end of the spring. Just hanging there...I've never noticed it before.

1) Have you found a solution to get your CDs to play?
2) Does anyone have a clue what the other end of this spring is supposed to connect to? Or know where I can find a detailed diagram of the pieces on this part of the device?

hi, check that when the right side tray closes the screen must show up READ or DISC CHECK. the behaviour must be the same as the left side cd deck. if loading is faulty then the cd tray is out of alignment or sensing swithches are faulty. if disc is loading then u have a laser pickup problem or the laser ribbon cable is intermittent or the spindle motor is tired or the laser lens needs accurate cleaning. cheers.
