Re: playing cd's

I have one and had two problems with CD.

First I was using a 12VDC adaptor pluged to feed electrical power to this unit,but I foubd that This adpator hadn't enough capacity for the CD mechanism,so everithing worked well exept CD wasn't go out and some times can't pay it.So noe feed 110v directly with the 110v cord and this problem disapears.CD goes in and out OK.
Other problem I have is that CD don't play OK or simply don't plays with the unit stand
like it was designed(You Know CD working position is Inclined).If I put the unit in the way the CD is in Horizontal position it works just fine all time.

This are some suggestions for your problem based in my experience with my unit.
Hope it helps.

Symphonic Video/DVD player- dvds not able to be read so they don't play

possibly check the setup of the player. some dvd's will not work in most players. check the manual. if under warranty take back to store. or better yet buy another one like it and take the one that is bad back to the store with the new receipt.

Ilive ib7 ipod won't play

Hello, I had the same problem and I was about to return it to the store and finally figure it out...
The IPOD buttton wont work unless you really plug the IPOD in the craddle... I was thinking all the time that it was pluged, but it was not... You need to aligned it.. When you think is pluged look between the IPOD and the Boom box and you will have a better view... If you have the Classic IPOD like me, you will have to slide the plug on the boom box to the right... Try my friend....
