Re: 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.

Cd player plays for 30 sec than skips to another track or to the end track

This indicates a laser pickup assembly problem, overtime the laser becomes weaker until it cannot track the disc properly causing it to skip, one possible solution is to purchase a cd cleaning kit and follow the instructions and attempt a recovery, if this fails it is cheaper to replace the bookshelf system than have it repaired.

Hello, my CD skips after playing 5 songs and then ...

Have you tried cleaning the lens tracking gears with some gear grease? That is most likely the problem. The lens is fine reading the first 5 tracks but when it gets to the 6th one it will start to struggle as it cannot adjust the angle to the correct part of the cd due to the gears or the lens rails been dry or clogged with dust.
