Question about Audio Players & Recorders

2 Answers

This CD player is part of a Mitsubishi E-63P Audio System. I realise that it is old,but it is a wonderfull unit. The Laser needs replacing in the DP-47P CD player. I have been told another new laser is not available. Surely ther must be a compatable laser that could be used. I trust you can help me, i.e. part numbers and where to purchase Regards, Norm. Sydney Australia

    If you have a manual,then why not get the part number and see if Mitsubishi in the states or Japan can offer a laser that would be compatible.

    I am a long way away in Australia,and believe that the inquiries that I have made here have been put in the too hard basket.

    In these Hi Tech times there must be an equivalent laser.

    How about helping an old chap.

    The product is CLASS 1 Laser & complies with DHHS 21 CFR sub chapter J part 1040:10.This information is from the manual that I have.
    The manual is not the issue.
    Issue is what is a comparable Laser and what is the part number,and where is it available.

I've had a hard look to find any part numbers or replacements for this model but unfortunately could find anyone providing this information. I'm not sure if this will assist, but I have found a manual which may have the part number listed.

The manual can be purchased here, and they will send you the manual by e-mail as an electronic copy which you can see on your computer. I hope it will be of some help.

Best of luck.

With regards

    Thank you for your reply, Norm.

    I understand you concerns and have just tried again very hard to find the manual for free. I don't have this one with me. I can only suggest purchasing the one found online. There seems to be no-one giving out the manual for free for this model.

    With regards

I have an old SHARP mini component systen and everything works except the CD player. It says ER CD-10

Laser assembly is probably ng and that part of unit needs replacement if it is not a proprietary design. If so, forget it since it will not be cost effective.

Cd inserted in cd player no disc

The problem is in the laser pickup assembly, overtime the laser becomes weak until it will no longer read the disc, it is far cheaper to replace the stereo than have the old unit repaired.

I have a philips hts6510 home theatre system and when i put a dvd in to play it says no disc

Normally a dvd player shows the message NO DISC when,
1. The disc inserted is bad.
2 The lase pickup unit inside the dvd lost its reading intensity, dirty lens or the spindle motor damaged .

In your case the second one happened. the intensity of the laser pickup unit has lost or the spindle motor faulty or there is some dust on its lens. just insert a cleaning cd in it for two or three times. then check again is the DVD is reading or not

if the problem remains then you have to check the motor and the laser pickup unit. the lase pickup unit have two laser emitter and receiver in its inside . one for reading and playing DVDs and the other for CD and MP3. also the spindle motor runs in different speed when u insert dvd and cd.

Open the cover of your dvd player and power it on insert an audio cd and watch is it reading or not also notice the speed of the spindling of the cd. if the audio cd reads and play. then the possible problem is the spindle motor

To conform it remove the audio cd and insert a dvd. watch the rotation of the dvd. if it feel very hard to rotate it then, the spindle motor is damaged. if so replace the spindle motor if it runs more the the speed of than audio cd then the laser pickup unit is faulty. Then u have to replace the laser pickup unit.
if you need any further assistance from me , feel free to contact me through fixya.

My one-year old Marantz CD5001 CD player

these models use the 12.1 philips laser mechanism and it is a very common problem for failing to read discs.
various technics / marantz / philips / cyrus cd players etc also use it and are plagued with the same fault.
it's a 90% chance the laser is dead!
philips realised the unreliability of this laser and uprated it to the identical looking VAM-12.
do not dismiss the spindle motor as these also fail quite alot on this mechanism.

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.

Kenwood Car Audio system model no. KDC-X8529

Mnay things can stop a CD player from reading.... Try cleaning the LASER LENS in the unit(you may have to remove it from the car) with a cotton wool bud soaked in Windex glass cleaner. Then use a second (fresh, dry, and clean) cotton bud to remove any residue film(left from your cleaning procedure). If this does not work, then the unit may need some detailed diagnostic work done to determine what is wrong, or if a laser replacement is needed. REMEMBER Repairs are worthwhile, only if yo have a good tech!!
