    How would you clean a laser lens inside a carousel cd player?

    I took it apart, what does the lens look like?

  • moflo Oct 06, 2007

    I took the system apart and could not locate the lens. Where is the cd lens located in a stereo system that has a 5-disc carousel changer? It is a Fisher Model TAD 992 made in August 1992. It is practically new.

Maybe there is some dirt on the laser lenses?

    You have to take it apart to acces the lens, then carefuly clean the lens with alcohol and cotton earstick, without pressing it much. Tricky, yeah, but it could be done.

    On the laser head. Carousel brings CD to be played above the laser head. Be careful, do not press hard.

Sony CDP belts, mechanism gets disk, places it in front of the spindle but the spindle doesn't move toward it and the disk is put back in carousel.

These models often get broken loading parts in front of the pickup assembly. If you could take a good picture of the front of the mech, I may be able to identify what is broken.

Need remote codes for AIWA CX ZR 525u Cd/Tape Radio Deck 5 Disk

Hi. The carousel loading belt probably needs replacing - that's why you are "helping" it.

You could try cleaning the cd lens too if it's not selecting an reading cds.


Replacement belts and laser units are on ebay.

How do I clean a 5 CD disc changer?

i think the concept of this type of machine is one actual disc reader (the eye needing the cleaning) and a carousel that carries discs to the play position. So a cd lens cleaner can be placed in any of the carousel parts and do as much good as in another, once should be enough.

Broken carouself? Can't properly open, close, rotate, etc.

Broken gears. The current replacement 5 disc is a CD/DVD player and sells for $129.00 at Sony or any other Sony retailer. The cost to have a service center even estimate the repair would be more than 50% of the replacement cost. Hope this helps

Onkyo 6 disc cd changer DX-380 has CD stuck under carousel

This has just happened to us. Often when the changer tries to select a CD on random play, it somehow knocks one CD off the carousel, usually on top of the other 5 CDs and then you can retrieve it easily. This time it knocked it down behind the carousel so the drawer could not close. We left the drawer open, carefully took the player out and tipped it upside down and then tipped it forward. We then closed the drawer while it was still upside down and then turned the player back up the right way. The loose CD fell onto the carousel and we could then open it and retrieve the CD. No damage to either CD or changer and we are now listening to music again!

M-Error is a mechanical error and could have a multitude of causes. just went through it with a TAD-5160 unit where it was a small slip gear moving a tin lever to ingage the transport sled to insert or eject the disk from and to the carusel. You may have to take the unit apart and asess the problem. Harleysp.
