    CD tray opens on power-up and after "Welcome!" message, "TOC Reading" continually displays and no controls work.

    My unit displays TOC reading and in addition my CD player will not shut; it seems to be locked in the open position. Since none of the buttons work there seems to be nothing I can do.

According to rep. at Tascam, laser is weak or dead. If you are electronically/mecahically inclined, you can replace the drive mechanism (sort of like aCD-RW drive in a computer, but this has flex-circuit cables going to it for power, signal, and control which are relatively delicate compared to the cables in a computer). Parts Dept @ 323-726-0303 ex.840 can supply you
with your needs.

If they can't fix it or have parts for a 21/2 year old machine they shouldn't sell them. Old Dude

Hi _ I have a Marantz CD player a littl;e over 6 years old. Performed perfectly until today, when it started inserting brief gaps in the music, approx 1-2 seconds; at the same time the track / time...

laser cleaning cd's very rarely work. the only thing they are good for is if there is a build-up of dust on the lens. Sounds like you most likely need to have the laser replaced.

After reading toc of my Marant zcd5003 the display is "error" seeking help to find out the cause

  1. No disc. - Load a disc into the tray.
  2. Disc has been loaded upside down. Place the disc with the label side up.
  3. Disc region code does not match region code of the player.
  4. Disc type is not the correct type to play.
  5. Disc is damaged or dirty. Clean the disc or try another.
  6. Moisture may be condensed inside the unit. Remove the disc and the leave the power on for one or two hours.
follow the steps and fix it.
God bless you

What does TOC read mean, the cd does not spin

TOC stands for Table of Contents. On a MiniDisc recorder or CD recorder, a Table Of Contents MUST be written before a disc is usable. On A player, a TOC must be read before the unit knows where to find the songs. Sounds like the laser is NOT reading the TOC, so you will hear nothing until that is corrected (clean lens or replace unit). Try a storebought CD, as perhaps is doesn't like your own burned CD's and most units built before 2000 will not read your own CD's that you make.

Sony mdm-x4 when I load a disc it shows me blank disc, before that TOC reading. how can I get my record back?

You cannot remove power from a minidisc player after you are done recording as it updates the TOC when you power down. If you had switch set to timer "REC" and power up the unit it should update the TOC, otherwise all is lost.

Kenwood MD plays ok but recordings fail to play; U TOC error?

Without a decent Table Of Contents, your MiniDisc will NOT work, as you've found out. Does it matter what brand of MD you use? I would record it at "1X" and NOT 4x speed too. Try erasing a blank minidisc first and then shut off the unit and then turn it back on and see if the TOC works. Try adding a title, then turn it off and back on. Then try the CD to MD.

When i inserted my mini disc it said TOC Reading then said Toc Error and C14. What is the problem?

Sounds like you lost power when you were finishing recording a disc. On a home unit it got unplugged before you had the TOC written, or on a battery unit the battery died when it was writing the TOC (table of contents) for the disk.

Cassette players jammed

actually you can not lubicate the cassette players. it has to do with a belt inside. your players may need to be demagnitized. i would go to radio shack or electronic store and try a cassette cleaner/demagnitizer and see if that solves the problem. i would even try different batteries or a ac power adapter if you have the plug. some batteries make units run slow. i would even get a can of dust cleaner that you find in the electronics section. you spray it in and it cleans the inside of the dust that may be inside.

Each unit needs a different code. If all the units operated from with the same code, when you switched on your TV the other units would also switch on even if you were not going to use them. The way to set up your One For All, is to find three different codes, then set up some of the functions such as the TV volume control to work common with all three units so you do not have to keep switching remote between them. To use the main functions on each unit, you will have to select them separately with the remote controller. Visit the One For All website, you will find it easily using Google. Have fun...
