Question about Teac CD-X8 CD Shelf System

Loud noise from subwoofer on standby or while playing music

My Teac CD-X8 worked great until a week ago when I turned the subwoofer on and heard a very loud hum, which continued even when I put on a CD. Since then, the noise is there all the time, sometimes it gets even louder - like an airplane; makes it impossible to use the system. Is there anything I can do short of throwing it out?

My system makes a buzzing noise while it is playing, I think I need a new subwoofer cable because when you wiggle the cable the noise is almost gone. What do you think? Where can I get a new cable?

It might be your cable. Go to Radio Shack with the cable - and see if they will test it for you before spending money on a new one. It may be a toasted channel - in which case you may need to replace the entire unit. Good luck!

This model is a pain due to the fact that the the unit will not turn on unless you turn the power on in TWO places; the cd player and the subwoofer.

Buzz from speakers or headphone when CD is played.

This is due to improper insulation of wires or improper isolation of power unit with the rest of the unit.

CD player cover/door won't stay closed

The intermittent version of this seems to be related to the cable that goes to the subwoofer portion. Have seen this behavior when the cable got loose. Unfortunately, I believe that this behavior may get worse in the long run and cause CDs to not play at all.

Trying to finalize a cd

Hi, This is just a guess but it may be worth a try. I have heard that Audio CD-Rs, which are the only media this machine will record onto, are famous for being finicky about being played on different kinds of CD readers. My suggestion is that you "rip" the Audio CD-R's content to your computer (in .wav or .MP3 format) and then make a copy of your album onto a reagular CD-R which is more likely to be played on any CD reader. Not sure if this'll work for you but it's worth a shot. Hope this helps.
