try adjusting the brightness knob on the system. i once had that same problem with mine. The ccfl tube (the main battery drain problem in most portables) might be burnt out or something. You can replace it with LED's i think.

SOURCE: my sega game gear sound has no sound how can i fix it!

might need a new headphone jack due to rough handling or a new volume pot. try plugging in headphones and wriggling them gently to see if you get sound, if that does not work try fiddling the volume knob, whichever gives a burst of sound will show you which needs to be replaced.

SOURCE: how to fix the sound on a sega game gear 2110

Hi Jeremy,
This is an easy repair, if you are used to working with a 15 watt solderin iron, and have a little experience with solderin small parts.
The sound board needs new capacitors, it is a common failure. I believe there are 6 of them, and the cost should be under $10.

This repair works well, but the capacitors that are in the display secton can go out too, at a later time. If you get to the oint where you must tilt the display at an angle to view, the caps are probably failing. Again, it is a matter of just replacing the caps.
Here are two videos that detail the repairs.
Good luck!

I have Rowe AMI 100 CD jukebox. I replaced CDPRO2 Optical Laser-lens and sound still cuts in and out. At times it can't pick up the sound and the cd stops and tries again.


Watch the motor that moves the lens assembly while a CD is playing. It doesn't take much movement to stall the optics so if a gear is slightly binding, that would be enough to cause your problem. Sometimes using a very light machine oil like that is used on a sewing machine on the pivot points will help the gears. A lithium type grease on the rails that the optics moves on may have dried a little, so be sure to check that area too.

You have to take the box apart and clean the lens.Ok !
  1. The white plastic gear that moves the laser must make contact with the "motor". A bad contact here can cause disk read errors. Sometimes it looks Ok, but you may need to remove the lens and bend the white gear for good contact.
  2. The two rails on which the lens move must be very slippery - which can be lubricated with cooking or motor oil. Usually the holes where the rail is (on the right side of the lens) are dirty or you have to bore then out slightly, making the holes bigger.
  3. The lens uses little torx screw (black) that move the lens up and down on the rail. Usually the lens is too high and requires adjustment.
  4. Take the lens off these 2 rails and take the black plastic cover off. Turn the lense upside-down and you'll find there are 2 screws (silver, phillips or torx) that you have to remove to take the upper little lens off.
  5. Then you'll see a larger lens that is usually very dirty (this lens is a mirror to light). If that's dirty, it will give a disk read error. You'll have to take the little electric board off that you see on the other side of the big lens-mirror. It's probably dirty too, so clean it. Alcohol should work OK for this task.
  6. The lens bottom has 2 + 2 screws. You move the upper "little" lens up-down-left-right (this may require a special screwdriver)
  7. The motor "rail" that moves the lens must be very clean and oiled and the 2 rails too.

CD player skips on early tracks


The lens assembly in a CD player glides along on a two rail track, kinda like a railroad track except tubular. The lens carriage is moved over this track by a small motor driving a worm gear. (Think long, tubular and spiral). If the rail tracks or the worm gear dry up or have dust accumulating on them, this could be the cause. Normally they have a light gear oil or lithium grease on them to keep them lubricated.

Disc reading sound ps2 slim


Check around where the laser connects to the worm gear that moves it up and down. You may have some lint wrapped around the worm gear. Also check the disc spindle motor for Lint trapped under it. It could be your laser lens getting dirty.
Clean the Slims lens with a Q-tip and Window Glass Cleaner.
  1. Lightly Dampen one of the tips of the Q-tip with Glass Cleaner
  2. Swab the laser lens with the dampened Q-tip.
  3. Clean and dry of the laser lens with the dry tip of the Q-tip
Good luck

Lens motor


You are nearly right or even has stripped gears. Check out Olympus for a possible repair I do not think you will be jumping for joy at the price though.
