I P 23 Speaker Not Working?

Like several posts my I P23 speaker system just quit working. I didn't have the manual and neither did anyone else. Also, no one on Fix Ya really solved the problem. Well - I finally figured it out. In the left side battery compartment you will notice a small little tab like door. Open that door and there is a 3V flat disc battery. You will need a small flat head screw driver to hold back the spring loaded pin that is holding the battery in place. I found a replacement at Radio Shack. It is smaller in diameter than a standard 3V disc battery. The speakers now work!! Yeah!!!!

CD function in 5 disc stereo constantly flashing "CHANGE"

Open the drawer and check to verify the disc was put in the disc 1 position. Sometimes the changer gets confused if disc 1 is not in the disc 1 cavity. Also, 5 disc changers are very prone to failure

CD player doesn't work . the door to the 6 disc changer won't even open

This happens when the disc loading mechanism becomes faulty. when this happens the mechanism fails to load the disc to the right place thereby not allowing the optical lens which is supposed to read the disc to be able to read from the disc. All you have to do is get the loading motor and mechanism serviced and checked. This should get the door to the loader to start opening and in turn solve the working issue.
Hope this solution has been helpful?

I need to clean the stereo's laser lens. I don't know how to access it. The stereo won't even read the CD-cleaner. I've tried opening the console, is there any way around having to go into the inner...

No disc error can be a DIY like the following steps.

Assuming that the disc is good.

1.Cleaning the lens. - Sometimes because of dust the lens can't read any disc.

Try clean the lens by soft cotton buds. Be careful while doing this.

Open the cover of your unit then you will see the optical lens right on the upper portion.

Component like yours is quite technical for assembly and dis-assembly so be careful.

2.Replacing the ribbon - Check the ribbon connected to the lens from the main board for scratch, damage. Once it has an open line then of course the lens can't read the disc. Also try to erase the contact by pencil eraser.

If you've done the steps above and the symptoms still there then the next step requires you a little knowledge in soldering technique and reading the ohmmeter.

3.Checked the motor - Check the motor that spin the disc with an ohmmeter. You can test it using the ohmmeter (x1) even it is connected on the lens assembly.

Good motor - reading should be fairly high and it will spin.

Bad motor - reading will drop to low resistance and will not spin.

Hint : 50% of my repaired unit the above parts are commonly caused of the problem.

If you confirmed that you have a defective motor then replace it with a new one. Before replacing the new motor you have to check the clearance of the disc holder with the old one. The clearance should be the same as the old because if not the lens will not read the disc if it is too far or too close.

If you already cleaned the lens, and confirmed that the ribbon is good as well as the motor then I've advice you to send it to repair shop because the next step should be done with an expert because it is quite technical diagnosing the fault between the pick-up lens and the main board.

Thanks for using fixya.

get a butter knife and force the cd tray to open try not to force to hard that it breaks but enough that it might kick in the eject by itself

CD changer won't open

There may be a jammed disc in the mechanism - if there is no manual release near the door (there isn't usually on these systems), you may have to open the case and look to make sure there's not a disc jammed somewhere in there.
