Question about Califone International 2455AV Performer+ Cassette/CD Boombox

1 Answer

CD player intermittently will not read track when I skip to another track

Initially the CD player operates properly. With the remote control I can select a track and it will play. After 10 to 15 minutes of playing, when I pause the CD and select another track, it acts like it cannot find/select the track. Sometimes after about 5 seconds, it plays the selected track, other times the CD just spins. I cleaned the laser eye with a Q-tip and some rubbing alcohol and also used a Scotch CD laser lens cleaner. I use the balance control for this player a lot and really need it. Any help would be appreciated.

This might not be a problem with your CD player but with your CD. To check this, if it's easy for you, make a copy of your CD and try it. If the problem is fixed then it was a problem with your CD. If it's not fixed then the problem is with your CD player. Maybe the CD lens needs to be changed or be calibrated by a service technician.

CD player freezes on certain tracks. My only way to stop it is to push the advance arrow to go to the next track It seems to happen on every CD I play.

try to clean your optical lens, by a cotton badge and put some oil on moving parts. if ended you need to replace optical assembly. or try to re align potentiometer that control the focus of the lens.

Sound skips

Since you have cleaned the lense I will skip that recommendation. I am assuming that you did not use a cleaning cd as they do nothing and many times cause damage to the laser assembly. You should go to my tip to be sure that you have cleaned it properly If you are absolutely sure that the lense is clean and no damage has occurred then you probably have some dried up hard grease on the rails which the laser slides (tracks) on. Clean this stuff off and regrease with a light lubricant and make sure that you do not get any lubricant on anything. See how this works and let me know.

My Sony CFD SO1 keeps skipping/display light keeps flashing

That is an electronic problem. Probably a just-about-to-break cable in the motor of the CD drive, that sometimes causes a short and turns off the unit, or sometimes makes it to comport erratically and produce the buzzy sound. If you have electronics knowledge, then you may open and check the wiring harnesses. If don't, take it to your local electronics repair.

Ive just inherited a panasonic RXDT505 portable cd stereo without remote control or manual and I don't know how to skip cd tracks?

It is much easier with a remote ,but what you have to do is turn the 'jog' dial on the top of the machine wilst looking at the display to select the track, then press the play button to play the track you have selected. I would recommend upgrading to a DT 707 ,if you see on that is,as they have amazing sound quality! much better than the DT 505.
