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.

Hi ..I have Pionner PD-M701 CD Chanager .the player works so fine and recognize all cds in the trays but the issue is in the reading .


hi Sam.
you could try this.
Clean the CD if it skips or the player can't read it. Use a clean lint-free cotton cloth and make sure the CD is not scratched. Use a lens-cleaning CD in the player. If you can access the lens without opening the case, clean it with a cotton swab and lens cleaner.
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. Rubbing in circles can cause more damage.

The cd player goes into a "skipping" "playing really fast" mode occasionally. Esp. 3rd track, 1st cd. Always has.


It's having trouble reading the CDs. The thing that reads it could be dirty. But try a different cd. The CD player is getting old and if there is even a small scratch it will be hard to read it. A new CD player would be the way to go

Cd player plays for 30 sec than skips to another track or to the end track


This indicates a laser pickup assembly problem, overtime the laser becomes weaker until it cannot track the disc properly causing it to skip, one possible solution is to purchase a cd cleaning kit and follow the instructions and attempt a recovery, if this fails it is cheaper to replace the bookshelf system than have it repaired.

My kenwood D R350 CD player keeps skipping on some but not all tracks. I have tried to CD cleaner but this didnt work, what can you advise


The problem is in the laser pickup assembly, overtime the laser becomes weaker until it can not track properly resulting in skipping and eventually not been able to read the disc. My next step would be to get a CD cleaning kit which you have already done. The only option is replace the assembly which is not cost effective, but far cheaper to buy a new CD player.

No Problem...I just don't know where to click to change track on CD


Turn the EASY JOG/ENTER key until the required track number appears on the display
or
Enter the required track number using the numerical keys on the remote control. For 2-digit track numbers, press the keys in rapid succession.
In either case play will skip to the beginning of the selected track.

Static and skipping


You might need to have it professionally cleaned / diagnosed. The problem might not be a dirty reader, but a misaligned tray. Many trays, over time, become misaligned. Some more than others. Depends on your use and abuse of the unit. The issues generally happen towards the end of the tracks.

Player stuck in scan mode


Hi...

Unplug it from the wall...give it a couple minutes. Try playing a CD again (using manual controls) If that works , your remote might be the issue.

If you bought the thing new you paid good $$ for it.

It's worth having it looked at by a Pro.
