As far as I know, there is no adjustment for the spinning of disks - the microcomputer determines the speed to spin the disk in order to read the pits properly. What I normally find is a dirty lens that can carefully cleaned with alcohol and a clean lint free cloth. Another problem I find is a build up of lint on the rods that the laser runs on that stops the laser head from going far enough along them to begin the reading of the pits. And one final problem I've seen that isn't fixable is that the very fine wires that suspend the laser focusing lens might be broken or have a real bug or dirt stuck so it won't go up and down properly read the pits on the disk.

    Sorry Tony but there is not a potentiometer for this function as that is handled by the microcomputer.

CD player plays some CD but some of the others it spins them and tosses them off the cone


The center cone on the hub could be a problem if the player was not for the right juke. Each brand has their own style. (If you still have the old player, check and make sure the the hubs are the same.) The center cone on the hubs are glued in place so if they are different you might be able to pop the old one off and replace it to the new player. One other problem could also be the magnetic pressure disk that is supposed to hold the disk on the hub. Is it centered in the hold down arm or does it rub the sides? Does the disk wobble as it spins? The magnetic disk is supposed to hold it down on the hub to prevent it from wobbling and coming off the turntable.

Cd wont play it picks up an goes around but wont play need to know what to do


It sounds that the optical pickup unit to your player is faulty. Open the top cover of the player, power it ON and insert a CD in to. Check whether the inserted CD loads well into the mechanism and spins. If do not spins, sled motor is faulty. If it spins, optical pickup unit should be replaced.

The dvd player wont play dvd's it will play cd's


Sometimes it might pick up ordinary audio CD but will not play other formats. This indicates that the optical head is weak and so there is no detection or scanning of the CD . If the optical is working the tracks will be read immediately but with no scanning the laser head can be defective.

If there is no result then watch if the CD spins or tries to spin. If so the board seems to work unless a test is taken on the main board but the possibility of a defective optical head can be the suspected fault.
If any of the above seems otherwise we must recheck with possibilities of a malfunction of the main processor board

CD Player Skipping And Spinning Backwards!


Clean laser first. Near the laser there will 2 / 3 adjustable pots. Mark location on them all first. Pick one (then another) move a little left or right and see if you can get it working. If all fails return them to original positions nothing but time lost.
