Question about RCA RS2652 Shelf System

1 Answer

RS 2654 When playing a CD it skips from one place in the song to another. It does this on a brand new CD so I know it's not scratched. Also, sometimes the CD gate won't open. You have to unplug and plug to get it to open. Thanks for any help you can offer.

Sounds like the laser is off place. The laser will go back to the end of the track it rolls on before it will open the gate. This could also be the problem with the CD Skips.

Now I don't want to tell you to open it up and explain how to fix it, but I will say if you have a computer shop in your area, they would fix it for around $50-70 at most.

Hello, my CD skips after playing 5 songs and then ...

Have you tried cleaning the lens tracking gears with some gear grease? That is most likely the problem. The lens is fine reading the first 5 tracks but when it gets to the 6th one it will start to struggle as it cannot adjust the angle to the correct part of the cd due to the gears or the lens rails been dry or clogged with dust.

My mothers Teac DC-2831 skips when playing cds. We have used cd cleaning disc, and even compressed air. Nothing! What can we do? If we have to take it to a repair shop, can you give us one in the Los...

My DC-2831 started doing the same thing -- and continued, despite repeated cleaning with a CD-player cleaning disc. Oddly, older CDs would play OK, but brand new ones -- commercial CDs, not homemade -- would promptly begin skipping or lock out altogether. Solution?

Unplug the system, lock the turntable stylus arm into place with the attached C-clamp, then carefully unscrew the back and side panels. Once the innards are exposed, gently lift out the CD-player and visually inspect it for hidden dust, pet dander, even fur can get inside there and gum up the works, and that's something NO CD-cleaning kit can ever reach.

Once you've inspected and cleaned the CD-player of all visible dust and dirt, carefully replace the player, make sure it's seated properly within the shell, then reattach the side and back panels in the exact reverse order as you removed them. THIS IS CRUCIAL: if you don't put the stereo back together in the exact reverse of how you took it apart, you'll have components off-kilter, screws that won't go back in (and leftover screws are a sure sign you're screwed it up!) and your CD-player will be even more temperamental than ever. Word to the wise.

If all this sounds too scary, then you'll have to either live with the crappy CD-playing performance, or get a new system. You can't replace the CD-player unless you buy an entire new system. WARNING: these all-in-one turntable systems are VERY RARE anymore, so don't get mad and kick your TEAC or toss it out or give it away on a whim. You'll play hell trying to find a replacement.

Hope this helps!

I had a rca system similar to this little different. It's a problem you'll find in any cd player after awhile. You'll need to replace the laser. It's quite easy google for some instructions to replace a cd laser. Look around for a laser that can read cd's and cd r and cd rw and you'll be ok. The disassembling might be a bit tuff but it's worth it. I had to replace my hifi laser and after i did sound was incredible again no skipping. Make sure when opening your system you power it on and unplug it to make sure all charge is gone wait 30 minutes or so before you go and operate.
