    Try using no faster than a 40x disk. Maybe 40x is still too fast but seems to work for most of the time.

The DVD transport rides on chrome rails. These get dust and stuff on them and wont allow the optics to track.

If you dare, open the unit UNPLUGGED from the AC.
See if you can get at those rails easily. clean with WD40 on a swab. clean with a new swab . then a couple drops of mystery oil on a swab and run down the rails over and under.
You must be VERY gentle if you clean the lens with isopropyl

Try to clean it manualy. Remove cover, use dilute alcohol and cotton, be careful and DO NOT PRESS TOO HARD, be very gentle. Good luck.

How to Fix a CD Player That Skips '
Why does a CD player skip?They don't scratch as easily as vinyl LPs, but I've damaged half a dozen CDs over the years. If a CD is skipping, first give it good clean using a CD wipe or mild soap and water. Dry carefully with a lint-free cloth in a straight line from the centre to the edge.

I just purchased a Rowe 100B CD jukebox. Most of the CD's skip a little. Does this mean the CD player is going bad, or could there be another problem. I'd hate to replace the CD player if there's a simpler...

Hi,when a CD skips like that, it means that the lens of the player is getting weak,that's when a CD player skips.

You might want to replace the lens of the player or before doing that,you can use a lens cleaner to clean up the lens, might be dirty..

After cleaning the lens and it still skips, you will need to replace the lens.

Would advice, if it's still on guarantee, you could simply go and replace it with another one,instead of going through the stress of repairs. Just an advice.

Have a nice day..

yes here is a simple easy way to get them to stop skipping, stick them in the freezer portion of your fridge, only if the cds have scratches on them, even the smallest scratch can cause a perfectly working cd player to make the cd skip, stick the cd in the freezer for about 15 or 20 mins and pull it out and play it, i have used this method for a lot of my video games as well and have never had to buy any "cd player cleaner cds" i hope this helps

Hi, I have a set of Denon DN-D4500 mixing CD's that are freezing/skipping, and need to be fixed. Any advice, please? Thanks


how long have you been using this player? The problem should be from the lens (laser).

The weak lens is also what's making it skip/freeze.

Get a lens cleaner and use it to clean the lens, but if the lens still does the same thing even after using the lens cleaner, then it means you would have to change the whole lens completely to a brand new one.

By so doing your player would play all Cd's with no problem at all.

Good luck.

Plays cd's but lots of skipping going on. I tried cleaning with a CD player disc cleaner that I got today. That didn't help. None of the CD's skip in another machine. Thanks!!

When optical lens got dusty or thin layer of dust on lens, cd starts skipping, as you tried cleaning with lens cleaner cd but no result.
You need to open the unit and clean the lens with good quality cotton bud / swab with care.
Still no joy, replace optical lens.
