Question about Jeep JXBLK Cassette/CD Boombox
CD player won't spin. I can't hear the motor running or anything.
Hi Could be bad spin motor, but the first thing to try is load the cd and put your ear to the unit and listen for a ticking sound...if there is, then the laser is trying to focus. If not ticking, there is likely a serious problem, and the whole unit should be replaced. If you hear the lense bouncing up and down, then it is likely a dirty lense or bad laser. To clean it, use a cotton swab and wet the end with at least 70% USP rubbing alchohol(99% better). Touch the swab to the lense and a drop should form on the lense, gently move the drop around to loosen any debris, and then use a dry swab and touch it to the lense to absorb the drop. Try the unit, and if it was dirt on the lense, it should work, if not the boombox should probably be replaced. Good Luck!

Clean the lens with rubbing alchohol - using a cotton swab - then clean it again, maybe even a third & fourth time. The units tend to get SO dirty (and we expect so much out of them) that this procedure needs to be done at least once a month. It only takes a few seconds to do! The last unit I worked on took 5 cleanings to begin functioning and two more for it to work as new.

For novices like me it'd be helpful if you'd acknowledge exactly where the lens is located. I think it's the little clear lens to the left of the spindle; and, I know you shouldn't look directly at this; but, in theory or for whatever reason, I was looking for a red lens. I cleaned off the clear lens and the whole player for that matter, to no avail. It must be the bigger issue. The unit stirs like it wants to read; but, returns to 00. Bah humbug.
