Durabrand CD-109 Stops

Using the switches to select cd player, and inserting a cd; the unit begins to spin oncethe lid is closed. The unit spins for maybe 10 to 15 seconds then stops. The idiot lights on the front panel go from the double zeros to the two horizontal leds, comes to a stop, and the two zeros light back up on the display. smells like a burnt capacitor.

How can I test the "Built In Thermal Fuse' in the Shing Wai T4458E 16AO transformer in my Duraband CD - 109 CD player? I suspect it has either "tripped," or simply burned out. And, if it is bad, w

If you check between the power source and the transformer you may find it, but if you didn't then you would have to change the transformer. it is bad.

Not work CD Player

HelloCheck the CD spins inside it, when we close the lid. if not, check the lid. There is a small swelling like formation at its edge that will get into the CD player, when we close it. This will hit on a micro switch inside the set, which in turn send a CD in signal to its system control IC. If this signal does not reach the main system control IC, it won't sense that CD is in. If this switching process is OK, when you close the CD lid, make sure that the CD mechanism has the trouble, and need service. OK.

Sony cfd-z110 cd seems to not spin/play when door/lid is closed but will play when lid is open and lid switch is depressed, is there any thing (maintence) that needs done on that round piece (that is...

your on the right track. the piece on top should spin really freely. there is a spring inside of that piece. if it lost its track it will lock it up from spinning. one other think it maybe is the tab is broken that presses the switch down. inspect both things if it ends up being the tab missing you can simple hot glue the switch down or dissemble and twists the two wires together (ones at the switch) that will bypass the switch. beware if you do this the laser will be active every time you have it in cd mode. (don't look at the laser it can harm your eyes) hope this helps please rate me.

The CD player will play some purchased CD-s but will not play others. The ones that it will not play do NOT iniate the disc motor but a click is heard and the display reads NO DISC. I have cleaned the...

If you can disassemble the CAP(disc holder) and place it on the disc while it is on the spindle and at the same time push the (hidden)lid switch you will see the lazer"s lens move up and down while trying to focus on the disc. If the lazer see's the disk it will tell the motor to turn. If it dosn't see the disc it will not turn the motor. Some model will kick the disc to spin a little while trying to see the disc. This type of player can be tricked into seeing the disc if you spin the disc a little by hand when the lazer's lens is moving up and down. At that point in time it might see the disc and take over the motor and spin up to normal speed. If the disc is an illeagal copy sold as a original the quality of the disc could be the cause. If the player is very clean (no small hairs stuck to the glue that holds the lens in place) (never clean with a cotton swab, use a shammie swab with rubbing alcohol or isopropal 99%) the problem could also be that the lazer is just not strong enough and the whole lazer-motor assemble should be replaced. Older units could use 1 drop of light motor oil on the motor shaft at the bearing to help start the motor when the system kicks the disc to spin. If the player reads the disc at the time you manually spin the disc maybe a good cleaning and oiling is all that is needed. The disc spins clockwise. if the disk spins counter clockwise replace the whole assemble. Maybe simpler, just give the disc a good clockwise spin and quickly close the door and push play while the disc is still spinning. if it starts, there you go. Don't use caned air on the lazer assemble. it will blow the dirt further into the lazer mechanism under the lens and make matters worse! Good luck!!

Durabrand model won't play

A friend of mine has one of these, and the same thing happened. Toss in a CD, and the unit reads it, but doesn't play it. Looking at the CD components, all appears to be well, and I was even able to trick the unit into turning on using a paper clip to hold down the "lid closed" switch.

What I found the issue to be was with the lack of downward or clamping pressure the CD was getting with the lid closed. If you notice, with the lid open, there is a round part that "floats" and serves two is to align the CD and keep it steady, and the other is to grip it, as the CD's do not snap into the lower centering piece, but rather just sit on it.

I solved the problem by placing a rubber o-ring on it, The one I used is about 1/16" (1mm +/-) and about 1 inch (25mm) diameter. I used some rubber cement to attach it to the top piece. I'm not sure how long this will hold, but it's worth a shot. I figure keeping a CD in the tray will help keep the ring in place as well.

Good luck!

CD player not working

NO NO NO NO NO NO dont be sticking a screw driver where you dont know where its going!!!! Theres no belt under the turntable as its a direct drive motor. It the platter dosent turn then that means that the laser is not focusing on the disc. This could a combination of five differant things. First is a simple one as the lens may need cleaning. Try first by using a good lens cleaning disc. Second make sure the slider that the lens is attached to is all the way back to the platter as sometimes there is a small belt that drives the slider assy via a worm gear and that belt goes bad alot as the worm gear i've seen get gunked up with air and dirt. Third is the platter its self . It may have slipped down to close to the lens and it wont focus. Forth could be the motor drive curcuit is defective . Coulkd be a bad motor control ic or the b+ going to the curcuit. and finally but not least could be a bad laser assy. If this is bad you might as well buy a new unit unless you can install one your self but be warned if you do you will need to alighn the new PU assy for tracking and focus gains as well as rf azmuth and laser power. Good luck I hope this put a little lite on the subject for ya.
