RCA has had lots of bad laser pickups the past several years. It has to focus before it will spin. Sometimes they will focus and spin but still not read the disc. Unfortunatly that unit is a throw away and no parts or service literature is available from RCA/Thomson. So if cleaning it does not do it, you are probably out of luck. CD lens cleaning discs: Every CD, stereo equipment, department, discount, store - and even sidewalk venders - carries CD lens cleaning discs. Are they of any value? Can they cause damage? I generally don't consider CD lens cleaning discs to be of much value for preventive maintenance since they may just move the crud around. However, for pure non-greasy dust (no tobacco smoke and no cooking grease), they may not hurt and could even do a good enough job to put off a proper cleaning for a while longer. However, it's also possible they will ruin the lens. Consider that the worst thing to do to a precision optical surface is to wipe it with a dry cloth as this is likely to scratch the surface as it rubs the dust over it. To the lens, a speck of dust is like a boulder. Once the lens is scratched, replacement of the entire optical pickup is the only remedy. And, since there are absolutely no sorts of standards for these things, it is possible for a really poorly designed cleaning disc to damage the lens even if the dust itself is non-abrasive. In addition, if the cleaning disc doesn't look like a CD to the optical pickup or disc-in sensor, the lens it may not even spin. So, the drawer closes, the drawer opens, and NOTHING has been accomplished! (But at least no damage will be done.) As if this isn't enough, NEVER put one into a high-X CDROM (DVD player or DVDROM drive). The high speed rotation may cause the cleaning disc and/or player/drive to self destruct. And, don't try a cleaning disc on an automotive CD player that sucks in the disk - it will get stuck.

Those "cleaning" discs are rarely effective. Open up the unit cna carefully clean the lens using a cotton swab and alcohol. Update this if that failes to resolve the problem.

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.

SOURCE: cd's skip

all the rca's have been released without quality control... you will have to open and adjust the potentiometers (the adjustible resistors on the main board) to re-calibrate the laser timings. However the way that the boards are mounted inside the boombox's chassis you will need to take apart everything to be able to reach the main board (inside vertical right side board with large heatsink and fan) without causing a short (as to be able to properly adjust these you need to have a cd playing and the whole thing needs to be upright.
I would recommend throwing it all way, not worth the time if you don't have the patience.

My Bose stereo CD player skips when I put on a cd. Doesn't matter if I change cd or advance track. After 5 min. it stops skipping, then no problems until next time I turn it on.


Bummer deal! Sounds like a lube problem. Maybe its an age thing. My car player does just the reverse. The arm hinge is the problem. Try wd40 with a straw, sprawing into the disk area, using a cd you don't mind losing to see if this tip works. http://www.auto-tune-up-and-repair-options.com/Mega-Power-120-lube-spray.html

The cd skips When I put a new cd in, it begins at one then skips to much higher numbers. I have cleaned the cd. Used a laser cleaner disk and I do not know what else to do. Am very frustrated. I have dried...


The "read-ahead" memory cache is too short.
Not much you can do, short of replacing the player; however:
Does your CD player support playing MP3's?
Convert your Audio music CD's to MP3.
The same audio music is "smaller" in MP3 format than audio format. More of the song can fit in the memory cache so it is less likely to "run out" of mermory and skip.
